XWD(1)              UNIX Programmer's Manual               XWD(1)

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 utili-
     ties for redisplay, printing, editing, formatting, archiv-
     ing, image processing, etc. The target window 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 resource id should be selected for the
             window dump, without requiring 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, without 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 win-
             dow, rather than directly on the specified window.
             In this way, you can obtain pieces of other windows
             that overlap the specified window, and more impor-
             tantly, you can capture menus or other popups that
             are independent windows but appear over the speci-
             fied 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.
