XCreatePixmap(3)		XLIB FUNCTIONS		      XCreatePixmap(3)

       XCreatePixmap, XFreePixmap - create or destroy pixmaps

       Pixmap XCreatePixmap(Display *display, Drawable d, unsigned int width,
	      unsigned int height, unsigned int	depth);

       int XFreePixmap(Display *display, Pixmap	pixmap);

       d	 Specifies which screen	the pixmap is created on.

       depth	 Specifies the depth of	the pixmap.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       pixmap	 Specifies the pixmap.

       height	 Specify the width and height, which define the	dimensions of
		 the pixmap.

       The XCreatePixmap function creates a pixmap of the width, height, and
       depth you specified and returns a pixmap	ID that	identifies it.	It is
       valid to	pass an	InputOnly window to the	drawable argument.  The	width
       and height arguments must be nonzero, or	a BadValue error results.  The
       depth argument must be one of the depths	supported by the screen	of the
       specified drawable, or a	BadValue error results.

       The server uses the specified drawable to determine on which screen to
       create the pixmap.  The pixmap can be used only on this screen and only
       with other drawables of the same	depth (see XCopyPlane for an exception
       to this rule).  The initial contents of the pixmap are undefined.

       XCreatePixmap can generate BadAlloc, BadDrawable, and BadValue errors.

       The XFreePixmap function	first deletes the association between the
       pixmap ID and the pixmap.  Then,	the X server frees the pixmap storage
       when there are no references to it.  The	pixmap should never be refer-
       enced again.

       XFreePixmap can generate	a BadPixmap error.

       BadAlloc	 The server failed to allocate the requested resource or
		 server	memory.

		 A value for a Drawable	argument does not name a defined Win-
		 dow or	Pixmap.

       BadPixmap A value for a Pixmap argument does not	name a defined Pixmap.

       BadValue	 Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted
		 by the	request.  Unless a specific range is specified for an
		 argument, the full range defined by the argument's type is
		 accepted.  Any	argument defined as a set of alternatives can
		 generate this error.
