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 ] [-icmap] [-screen] [-display display]

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 re-
	       source id should	be selected for	the window dump,  without  re-
	       quiring 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.

       -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  di-
	       rectly  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.
