|X Windows system pixmap
An XPM file, short for X PixMap, is a plain text image file format commonly used in Unix and Linux environments. It was originally created for the X Window System, a graphical user interface for Unix-like operating systems. XPM files are simple and human-readable, making them easy to create and edit with text editors. They are often used for storing small graphical elements such as icons, buttons, and cursors.
XPM files use a straightforward syntax that represents each pixel in the image with a corresponding character or color code. These files can store both black-and-white and color images. Each color in the image is defined in a color table, and the pixels are mapped to these colors. XPM files can be included in source code or configuration files, making them a convenient choice for customizing the appearance of graphical user interfaces in Unix-based applications.
A notable feature of XPM files is their portability, as they can be easily transferred between different Unix and Linux systems without compatibility issues. While they may not be as widely used today as other image formats like PNG or JPEG, XPM files continue to have a niche in the Unix and Linux development community, especially for creating small, customizable graphical elements for software interfaces.
