     bitmap    Specifies the bitmap.

               Returns the bitmap that is created.

     d         Specifies the drawable that indicates the screen.

     data      Specifies the data in bitmap format.

     data      Specifies the location of the bitmap data.

               Returns the bitmap data.

     depth     Specifies the depth of the pixmap.

     display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

     bg        Specify the foreground and background pixel values
               to use.

     filename  Specifies the file name to use. The format of the

               file name is operating-system dependent.

     height    Specify the width and height.

               Return the width and height values of the read in
               bitmap file.

     y_hot     Specify where to place the hotspot coordinates (or
               -1,-1 if none are present) in the file.

               Return the hotspot coordinates.


     The XReadBitmapFile function reads in a file containing a
     bitmap. The file is parsed in the encoding of the current
     locale. The ability to read other than the standard format
     is implementation-dependent. If the file cannot be opened,
     XReadBitmapFile returns BitmapOpenFailed. If the file can be
     opened but does not contain valid bitmap data, it returns
     BitmapFileInvalid. If insufficient working storage is allo-
     cated, it returns BitmapNoMemory. If the file is readable
     and valid, it returns BitmapSuccess.

     XReadBitmapFile returns the bitmap's height and width, as
     read from the file, to width_return and height_return. It
     then creates a pixmap of the appropriate size, reads the
     bitmap data from the file into the pixmap, and assigns the
     pixmap to the caller's variable bitmap. The caller must free
     the bitmap using XFreePixmap when finished. If name_x_hot
     and name_y_hot exist, XReadBitmapFile returns them to
     x_hot_return and y_hot_return; otherwise, it returns -1,-1.

     XReadBitmapFile can generate BadAlloc and BadDrawable

     The XReadBitmapFileData function reads in a file containing
     a bitmap, in the same manner as XReadBitmapFile, but returns
     the data directly rather than creating a pixmap in the
     server. The bitmap data is returned in data_return; the
     client must free this storage when finished with it by cal-
     ling XFree. The status and other return values are the same
     as for XReadBitmapFile.

     The XWriteBitmapFile function writes a bitmap out to a file
     in the X Version 11 format. The name used in the output file
     is derived from the file name by deleting the directory

     prefix. The file is written in the encoding of the current
     locale. If the file cannot be opened for writing, it returns
     BitmapOpenFailed. If insufficient memory is allocated, XWri-
     teBitmapFile returns BitmapNoMemory; otherwise, on no error,
     it returns BitmapSuccess. If x_hot and y_hot are not -1, -1,
     XWriteBitmapFile writes them out as the hotspot coordinates
     for the bitmap.

     XWriteBitmapFile can generate BadDrawable and BadMatch

     The XCreatePixmapFromBitmapData function creates a pixmap of
     the given depth and then does a bitmap-format XPutImage of
     the data into it. The depth must be supported by the screen
     of the specified drawable, or a BadMatch error results.

     XCreatePixmapFromBitmapData can generate BadAlloc and Bad-
     Match errors.

     The XCreateBitmapFromData function allows you to include in
     your C program (using #include) a bitmap file that was writ-
     ten out by XWriteBitmapFile (X version 11 format only)
     without reading in the bitmap file. The following example
     creates a gray bitmap:

     #include "gray.bitmap"
     Pixmap bitmap;
     bitmap = XCreateBitmapFromData(display, window, gray_bits, gray_width, gray_height);

     If insufficient working storage was allocated, XCreateBit-
     mapFromData returns None. It is your responsibility to free
     the bitmap using XFreePixmap when finished.

     XCreateBitmapFromData can generate a BadAlloc error.


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

               A value for a Drawable argument does not name a
               defined Window or Pixmap.

     BadMatch  An InputOnly window is used as a Drawable.
