NAME
       xwud - image displayer for X

SYNOPSIS
       xwud  [-in  file] [-noclick] [-geometry geom] [-display display]	[-new]
       [-std <maptype>]	[-raw] [-vis <vis-type-or-id>] [-scale]	[-help]	 [-rv]
       [-plane number] [-fg color] [-bg	color] [-dumpheader]

DESCRIPTION
       Xwud  is	 an  X	Window	System image undumping utility.	 Xwud allows X
       users to	display	in a window an image saved in  a  specially  formatted
       dump file, such as produced by xwd(1).

OPTIONS
       -bg color
	       If a bitmap image (or a single plane of an image) is displayed,
	       this option can be used to specify the color to display for the
	       "0" bits	in the image.

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

       -dumpheader
	       This option prints out the XWD header information only.	 Noth-
	       ing is displayed.

       -fg color
	       If a bitmap image (or a single plane of an image) is displayed,
	       this option can be used to specify the color to display for the
	       "1" bits	in the image.

       -geometry geom
	       This  option allows you to specify the size and position	of the
	       window.	Typically you will only	want to	specify	the  position,
	       and let the size	default	to the actual size of the image.

       -help   Print out a short description of	the allowable options.

       -in file
	       This  option  allows  the  user to explicitly specify the input
	       file on the command line.  If no	input file is given, the stan-
	       dard input is assumed.

       -new    This  option  forces  creation of a new colormap	for displaying
	       the image.  If the image	characteristics	happen to match	 those
	       of  the	display,  this can get the image on the	screen faster,
	       but at the cost of using	a new colormap (which on most displays
	       will cause other	windows	to go technicolor).

       -noclick
	       Clicking	 any  button in	the window will	terminate the applica-
	       tion, unless this option	is specified.  Termination can	always
	       be achieved by typing 'q', 'Q', or ctrl-c.

       -plane number
	       You  can	select a single	bit plane of the image to display with
	       this option.  Planes are	numbered with  zero  being  the	 least
	       significant bit.

       -raw    This  option  forces  the  image	 to be displayed with whatever
	       color values happen to currently	exist  on  the	screen.	  This
	       option  is  mostly useful when undumping	an image back onto the
	       same screen that	the image  originally  came  from,  while  the
	       original	 windows  are still on the screen, and results in get-
	       ting the	image on the screen faster.

       -rv     If a bitmap image (or a single plane of an image) is displayed,
	       this  option  forces the	foreground and background colors to be
	       swapped.	 This may be needed when  displaying  a	 bitmap	 image
	       which  has the color sense of pixel values "0" and "1" reversed
	       from what they are on your display.

       -scale  Allow the window	to be resized, and scale the image to the size
	       of the window.

       -std maptype
	       This  option  causes the	image to be displayed using the	speci-
	       fied Standard Colormap.	The property name is obtained by  con-
	       verting	the type to upper case,	prepending "RGB_", and append-
	       ing "_MAP".  Typical types are "best", "default",  and  "gray".
	       See xstdcmap(1) for one way of creating Standard	Colormaps.

       -vis vis-type-or-id
	       This option allows you to specify a particular visual or	visual
	       class.  The default is to pick the "best"  one.	 A  particular
	       class  can  be  specified:  "StaticGray", "GrayScale", "Static-
	       Color",	"PseudoColor",	"DirectColor",	or  "TrueColor".    Or
	       "Match"	can  be	 specified,  meaning use the same class	as the
	       source image.  Alternatively, an	exact visual id	 (specific  to
	       the  server)  can  be specified,	either as a hexadecimal	number
	       (prefixed  with	"0x")  or  as  a  decimal  number.    Finally,
	       "default"  can  be  specified, meaning to use the same class as
	       the colormap of the root	window.	 Case is  not  significant  in
	       any of these strings.

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY To get default display.

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

BUGS
       xwud  doesn't  handle  big/deep	images very well on servers that don't
       have the	BIG-REQUESTS extension.
