The leading general-purpose format for small multi-color pixmaps is the XPM
format used by Groupe Bull in several of its programs, including the GWM
window manager, by AT&T in its olpixmap editor, and by ICS in its interface
builder. The XPM distribution includes read/write routines for the simple XPM
text format.  See information on the xpm-talk mailing list above.

XPM 3.4h became available in 2/96 and is available from
ftp.x.org:/contrib/libraries/xpm-3.4h.tar.gz or
ftp://koala.inria.fr/pub/xpm/ .  Older versions are on the X
contrib tapes.

A set of XPM icons collected by Anthony Thyssen
(anthony@kurango.cit.gu.edu.au) is on ftp.x.org in R5contrib/AIcons; the
hobbes-icon-xpm3 collection of XPM icons is on hobbes.nmsu.edu/ .
