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] [-silent] [-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
       utilities for redisplay, printing, editing, formatting, archiving, 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  manu-
	       ally 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 window, rather than directly on the specified  window.	 In  this
	       way, you can obtain pieces of other windows that overlap the specified window, and
	       more importantly, you can capture menus or other popups that are independent  win-
	       dows but appear over the specified 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.

FILES
       XWDFile.h
	       X Window Dump File format definition file.
