XWUD(1)                 FreeBSD General Commands Manual                XWUD(1)

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.
               Nothing 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
               standard 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
               application, 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
               getting 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
               specified Standard Colormap.  The property name is obtained by
               converting the type to upper case, prepending "RGB_", and
               appending "_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",
               "StaticColor", "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.
