NAME
       Image::Xpm - Load, create, manipulate and save xpm image files.

SYNOPSIS
	   use Image::Xpm;

	   my $j = Image::Xpm->new(-file, 'Camel.xpm');

	   my $i = Image::Xpm->new(-width => 10, -height => 16);

	   my $h = $i->new; # Copy of $i

	   $i->xy(5, 8, 'red');       # Set a colour (& add to palette if necessary)
	   print $i->xy(9, 3);	      # Get a colour

	   $i->xy(120, 130, '#1256DD');
	   $i->xy(120, 130, $i->rgb2colour(66, 0x4D, 31));

	   $i->vec(24, '#808080');    # Set a colour using a vector offset
	   print $i->vec(24);	      # Get a colour using a vector offset

	   print $i->get(-width);     # Get and set object attributes
	   $i->set(-height, 15);

	   $i->load('test.xpm');
	   $i->save;

	   # Changing just the palette
	   $i->add_colours(qw(red green blue #123456 #C0C0C0));
	   $i->del_colour('blue');

DESCRIPTION
       This class module provides basic load, manipulate and save functionality for the xpm file
       format. It inherits from "Image::Base" which provides additional manipulation
       functionality, e.g. "new_from_image()". See the "Image::Base" pod for information on
       adding your own functionality to all the Image::Base derived classes.

   new()
	   my $i = Image::Xpm->new(-file => 'test.xpm');
	   my $j = Image::Xpm->new(-width => 12, -height => 18);
	   my $k = $i->new;

       We can create a new xpm image by reading in a file, or by creating an image from scratch
       (all the pixels are white by default), or by copying an image object that we created
       earlier.

       If we set "-file" then all the other arguments are ignored (since they're taken from the
       file). If we don't specify a file, "-width" and "-height" are mandatory and "-cpp" will
       default to 1 unless specified otherwise.

       "-file"
	   The name of the file to read when creating the image. May contain a full path.  This
	   is also the default name used for "load"ing and "save"ing, though it can be overridden
	   when you load or save.

       "-width"
	   The width of the image; taken from the file or set when the object is created; read-
	   only.

       "-height"
	   The height of the image; taken from the file or set when the object is created; read-
	   only.

       "-cpp"
	   Characters per pixel. Commonly 1 or 2, default is 1 for images created by the module;
	   read-only.

	   See the example for how to change an image's cpp.

       "-hotx"
	   The x-coord of the image's hotspot; taken from the file or set when the object is
	   created. Set to -1 if there is no hotspot.

       "-hoty"
	   The y-coord of the image's hotspot; taken from the file or set when the object is
	   created. Set to -1 if there is no hotspot.

       "-ncolours"
	   The number of unique colours in the palette. The image may not be using all of them;
	   read-only.

       "-cindex"
	   An hash whose keys are colour names, e.g. '#123456' or 'blue' and whose values are the
	   palette names, e.g. ' ', '#', etc; read-only. If you want to add more colours to the
	   image itself simply write pixels with the new colours using "xy"; if you want to add
	   more colours to the palette without necessarily using them in the image use
	   "add_colours".

       "-palette"
	   A hash whose keys are the palette names, e.g. ' ', '#', etc. and whose values are
	   hashes of colour type x colour name pairs, e.g. "c => red", etc; read-only. If you
	   want to add more colours to the image itself simply write pixels with the new colours
	   using "xy"; if you want to add more colours to the palette without necessarily using
	   them in the image use "add_colours".

       "-pixels"
	   A string of palette names which constitutes the data for the image itself; read-only.

       "-extname"
	   The name of the extension text if any; commonly XPMEXT; read-only.

       "-extlines"
	   The lines of text of any extensions; read-only.

       "-comments"
	   An array (possibly empty) of comment lines that were in a file that was read in; they
	   will be written out although we make no guarantee regarding their placement; read-
	   only.

   get()
	   my $width = $i->get(-width);
	   my ($hotx, $hoty) = $i->get(-hotx, -hoty);

       Get any of the object's attributes. Multiple attributes may be requested in a single call.

       See "xy" and "vec" to get/set colours of the image itself.

   set()
	   $i->set(-hotx => 120, -hoty => 32);

       Set any of the object's attributes. Multiple attributes may be set in a single call; some
       attributes are read-only.

       See "xy" and "vec" to get/set colours of the image itself.

   xy()
	   $i->xy(4, 11, '#123454');	# Set the colour at point 4,11
	   my $v = $i->xy(9, 17);	# Get the colour at point 9,17

       Get/set colours using x, y coordinates; coordinates start at 0. If the colour does not
       exist in the palette it will be added automatically.

       When called to set the colour the value returned is characters used for that colour in the
       palette; when called to get the colour the value returned is the colour name, e.g. 'blue'
       or '#f0f0f0', etc, e.g.

	   $colour = xy($x, $y);	    # e.g. #123456
	   $cc	   = xy($x, $y, $colour);   # e.g. !

       We don't normally pick up the return value when setting the colour.

   vec()
	   $i->vec(43, 0);	# Unset the bit at offset 43
	   my $v = $i->vec(87); # Get the bit at offset 87

       Get/set bits using vector offsets; offsets start at 0. The offset of a pixel is ((y *
       width * cpp) + (x * cpp)).

       The sort of return value depends on whether we are reading (getting) or writing (setting)
       the colour - see "xy" for an explanation.

   rgb2colour() and rgb2color()
	   $i->rgb2colour(0xff, 0x40, 0x80);	# Returns #ff4080
	   Image::Xpm->rgb2colour(10, 20, 30);	# Returns #0a141e

       Convenience class or object methods which accept three integers and return a colour name
       string.

   load()
	   $i->load;
	   $i->load('test.xpm');

       Load the image whose name is given, or if none is given load the image whose name is in
       the "-file" attribute.

   save()
	   $i->save;
	   $i->save('test.xpm');

       Save the image using the name given, or if none is given save the image using the name in
       the "-file" attribute. The image is saved in xpm format.

   add_colours() and add_colors()
	   $i->add_colours(qw(#C0C0DD red blue #123456));

       These are for adding colours to the palette; you don't need to use them to set a pixel's
       colour - use "xy" for that.

       Add one or more colour names either as hex strings or as literal colour names.  These are
       always added as type 'c' colours; duplicates are ignored.

       NB If you just want to set some pixels in colours that may not be in the palette, simply
       do so using "xy" since new colours are added automatically.

   del_colour() and del_color()
	   $i->del_colour('green');

       Delete a colour from the palette; returns undef if the colour isn't in the palette, false(0) if the colour is in the palette but also in the image, or true(1) if the colour has
       been deleted (i.e. it was in the palette but not in use in the image).

EXAMPLE
   Changing the -cpp of an image:
	   my $i = Image::Xpm(-file => 'test1.xpm'); # test1.xpm has cpp == 1
	   my $j = $i->new_from_image('Image::xpm', -cpp => 2);
	   $j->save('test2.xpm');

	   # Could have written 2nd line above as:
	   my $j = $i->new_from_image(ref $i, -cpp => 2);
