NAME
       Tk::Bitmap - Images that display two colors

SYNOPSIS
	   $image = $widget->Bitmap?(name??,options?)

DESCRIPTION
       A bitmap is an image whose pixels can display either of two colors or be transparent.  A
       bitmap image is defined by four things:	a background color, a foreground color, and two
       bitmaps, called the source and the mask.  Each of the bitmaps specifies 0/1 values for a
       rectangular array of pixels, and the two bitmaps must have the same dimensions.	For
       pixels where the mask is zero, the image displays nothing, producing a transparent effect.
       For other pixels, the image displays the foreground color if the source data is one and
       the background color if the source data is zero.

CREATING BITMAPS
       Bitmaps are created using $widget->Bitmap.  Bitmaps support the following options:

       -background => color
	   Specifies a background color for the image in any of the standard ways accepted by Tk.
	   If this option is set to an empty string then the background pixels will be
	   transparent.  This effect is achieved by using the source bitmap as the mask bitmap,
	   ignoring any -maskdata or -maskfile options.

       -data => string
	   Specifies the contents of the source bitmap as a string.  The string must adhere to
	   X11 bitmap format (e.g., as generated by the bitmap program).  If both the -data and
	   -file options are specified, the -data option takes precedence.

       -file => name
	   name gives the name of a file whose contents define the source bitmap.  The file must
	   adhere to X11 bitmap format (e.g., as generated by the bitmap program).

       -foreground => color
	   Specifies a foreground color for the image in any of the standard ways accepted by Tk.

       -maskdata => string
	   Specifies the contents of the mask as a string.  The string must adhere to X11 bitmap
	   format (e.g., as generated by the bitmap program).  If both the -maskdata and
	   -maskfile options are specified, the -maskdata option takes precedence.

       -maskfile => name
	   name gives the name of a file whose contents define the mask.  The file must adhere to
	   X11 bitmap format (e.g., as generated by the bitmap program).

IMAGE METHODS
       When a bitmap image is created, Tk also creates a new object.  This object supports the
       configure and cget methods described in Tk::options which can be used to enquire and
       modify the options described above.
