The xstdcmap utility can be used to selectively define standard
colormap properties. It is intended to be run from a user's X startup
script to create standard colormap definitions in order to facilitate
sharing of scarce colormap resources among clients. Where at all possible,
colormaps are created with read-only allocations.
The following options may be used with xstdcmap:
indicates that all six standard colormap properties should be
defined on each screen of the display. Not all screens will support
visuals under which all six standard colormap properties are meaningful.
xstdcmap will determine the best
allocations and visuals for the colormap properties of a screen. Any
previously existing standard colormap properties will be replaced.
indicates that the RGB_BEST_MAP should be defined.
indicates that the RGB_BLUE_MAP should be defined.
This option indicates that the RGB_DEFAULT_MAP should be defined.
specifies that a standard colormap property should be removed.
map may be one of: default, best,
red, green, blue, or gray.
specifies the host and display to use; see
for more information.
indicates that the RGB_GRAY_MAP should be defined.
This option indicates that the RGB_GREEN_MAP should be defined.
indicates that a brief description of the command line arguments
should be printed on the standard error. This will be done whenever an
unhandled argument is given to xstdcmap.
indicates that the RGB_RED_MAP should be defined.
indicates that xstdcmap should
print logging information as it parses its input and defines the
standard colormap properties.
