NAME
       xwd - dump an image of an X window

SYNOPSIS
       xwd  [-debug] [-help] [-nobdrs] [-out file] [-xy] [-frame] [-add	value]
       [-root |	-id id | -name name | -rect] [-icmap] [-screen]	[-display dis-
       play]

DESCRIPTION
       Xwd  is	an X Window System window dumping utility.  Xwd	allows X users
       to store	window images in a specially formatted dump file.   This  file
       can  then be read by various other X utilities for redisplay, printing,
       editing,	formatting, archiving, image processing, etc.  The target win-
       dow  is	selected  by  clicking the pointer in the desired window.  The
       keyboard	bell is	rung once at the beginning of the dump and twice  when
       the dump	is completed.

OPTIONS
       -display	display
	       This  argument  allows you to specify the server	to connect to;
	       see X(7).

       -help   Print out the `Usage:' command syntax summary.

       -nobdrs This argument specifies that the	window dump should not include
	       the pixels that compose the X window border.  This is useful in
	       situations where	you may	wish to	include	the window contents in
	       a document as an	illustration.

       -out file
	       This  argument allows the user to explicitly specify the	output
	       file on the command line.  The default is to output to standard
	       out.

       -xy     This  option  applies  to  color	displays only. It selects `XY'
	       format dumping instead of the default `Z' format.

       -add value
	       This option specifies an	signed value  to  be  added  to	 every
	       pixel.

       -frame  This  option  indicates that the	window manager frame should be
	       included	when manually selecting	a window.

       -root   This option indicates that the root window should  be  selected
	       for  the	 window	 dump,	without	requiring the user to select a
	       window with the pointer.

       -id id  This option  indicates  that  the  window  with	the  specified
	       resource	 id  should  be	 selected for the window dump, without
	       requiring the user to select a window with the pointer.

       -name name
	       This option  indicates  that  the  window  with	the  specified
	       WM_NAME	property should	be selected for	the window dump, with-
	       out requiring the user to select	a window with the pointer.

       -rect   This option indicates that the rectangle	 region	 of  a	screen
	       should  be selected with	the pointer. Window-related parameters
	       like nobdrs and frame are ignored.

       -icmap  Normally	the colormap of	the chosen window is  used  to	obtain
	       RGB values.  This option	forces the first installed colormap of
	       the screen to be	used instead.

       -screen This option indicates that the GetImage request used to	obtain
	       the  image  should  be  done  on	 the  root window, rather than
	       directly	on the specified window.  In this way, you can	obtain
	       pieces  of other	windows	that overlap the specified window, and
	       more importantly, you can capture menus or  other  popups  that
	       are independent windows but appear over the specified window.

       -silent Operate	silently,  i.e.	 don't ring any	bells before and after
	       dumping the window.

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY To get default host and display number.

FILES
       XWDFile.h
	       X Window	Dump File format definition file.
