SYNTAX
       int XPutImage(Display *display, Drawable d, GC gc, XImage *image, int src_x, int src_y,
	      int dest_x, int dest_y, unsigned int width, unsigned int height);

       XImage *XGetImage(Display *display, Drawable d, int x, int y, unsigned int width, unsigned
	      int height, unsigned long plane_mask, int format);

       XImage *XGetSubImage(Display *display, Drawable d, int x, int y, unsigned int width,
	      unsigned int height, unsigned long plane_mask, int format, XImage *dest_image, int
	      dest_x, dest_y);

ARGUMENTS
       d	 Specifies the drawable.

       dest_image
		 Specifies the destination image.

       dest_x
       dest_y	 Specify the x and y coordinates, which are relative to the origin of the draw-
		 able and are the coordinates of the subimage or which are relative to the origin
		 of the destination rectangle, specify its upper-left corner, and determine where
		 the subimage is placed in the destination image.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       format	 Specifies the format for the image.  You can pass XYPixmap or ZPixmap.

       gc	 Specifies the GC.

       image	 Specifies the image you want combined with the rectangle.

       plane_mask
		 Specifies the plane mask.

       src_x	 Specifies the offset in X from the left edge of the image defined by the XImage
		 structure.

       src_y	 Specifies the offset in Y from the top edge of the image defined by the XImage
		 structure.

       width
       height	 Specify the width and height of the subimage, which define the dimensions of the
		 rectangle.

       x
       y	 Specify the x and y coordinates, which are relative to the origin of the draw-
		 able and define the upper-left corner of the rectangle.

DESCRIPTION
       The XPutImage function combines an image with a rectangle of the specified drawable.  The
       section of the image defined by the src_x, src_y, width, and height arguments is drawn on
       the specified part of the drawable.  If XYBitmap format is used, the depth of the image
       must be one, or a BadMatch error results.  The foreground pixel in the GC defines the
       source for the one bits in the image, and the background pixel defines the source for the
       zero bits.  For XYPixmap and ZPixmap, the depth of the image must match the depth of the
       drawable, or a BadMatch error results.

       If the characteristics of the image (for example, byte_order and bitmap_unit) differ from
       what the server requires, XPutImage automatically makes the appropriate conversions.

       This function uses these GC components: function, plane-mask, subwindow-mode, clip-x-ori-
       gin, clip-y-origin, and clip-mask.  It also uses these GC mode-dependent components: fore-
       ground and background.

       XPutImage can generate BadDrawable, BadGC, BadMatch, and BadValue errors.

       The XGetImage function returns a pointer to an XImage structure.  This structure provides
       you with the contents of the specified rectangle of the drawable in the format you spec-
       ify.  If the format argument is XYPixmap, the image contains only the bit planes you
       passed to the plane_mask argument.  If the plane_mask argument only requests a subset of
       the planes of the display, the depth of the returned image will be the number of planes
       requested.  If the format argument is ZPixmap, XGetImage returns as zero the bits in all
       planes not specified in the plane_mask argument.  The function performs no range checking
       on the values in plane_mask and ignores extraneous bits.

       XGetImage returns the depth of the image to the depth member of the XImage structure.  The
       depth of the image is as specified when the drawable was created, except when getting a
       subset of the planes in XYPixmap format, when the depth is given by the number of bits set
       to 1 in plane_mask.

       If the drawable is a pixmap, the given rectangle must be wholly contained within the
       pixmap, or a BadMatch error results.  If the drawable is a window, the window must be
       viewable, and it must be the case that if there were no inferiors or overlapping windows,
       the specified rectangle of the window would be fully visible on the screen and wholly con-
       tained within the outside edges of the window, or a BadMatch error results.  Note that the
       borders of the window can be included and read with this request.  If the window has back-
       ing-store, the backing-store contents are returned for regions of the window that are
       obscured by noninferior windows.  If the window does not have backing-store, the returned
       contents of such obscured regions are undefined.  The returned contents of visible regions
       of inferiors of a different depth than the specified window's depth are also undefined.
       The pointer cursor image is not included in the returned contents.  If a problem occurs,
       XGetImage returns NULL.

       XGetImage can generate BadDrawable, BadMatch, and BadValue errors.

       The XGetSubImage function updates dest_image with the specified subimage in the same man-
       ner as XGetImage.  If the format argument is XYPixmap, the image contains only the bit
       planes you passed to the plane_mask argument.  If the format argument is ZPixmap, XGet-
       SubImage returns as zero the bits in all planes not specified in the plane_mask argument.
       The function performs no range checking on the values in plane_mask and ignores extraneous
       bits.  As a convenience, XGetSubImage returns a pointer to the same XImage structure spec-
       ified by dest_image.

       The depth of the destination XImage structure must be the same as that of the drawable.
       If the specified subimage does not fit at the specified location on the destination image,
       the right and bottom edges are clipped.	If the drawable is a pixmap, the given rectangle
       must be wholly contained within the pixmap, or a BadMatch error results.  If the drawable
       is a window, the window must be viewable, and it must be the case that if there were no
       inferiors or overlapping windows, the specified rectangle of the window would be fully
       visible on the screen and wholly contained within the outside edges of the window, or a
       BadMatch error results.	If the window has backing-store, then the backing-store contents
       are returned for regions of the window that are obscured by noninferior windows.  If the
       window does not have backing-store, the returned contents of such obscured regions are
       undefined.  The returned contents of visible regions of inferiors of a different depth
       than the specified window's depth are also undefined.  If a problem occurs, XGetSubImage
       returns NULL.

       XGetSubImage can generate BadDrawable, BadGC, BadMatch, and BadValue errors.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadDrawable
		 A value for a Drawable argument does not name a defined Window or Pixmap.

       BadGC	 A value for a GContext argument does not name a defined GContext.

       BadMatch  An InputOnly window is used as a Drawable.

       BadMatch  Some argument or pair of arguments has the correct type and range but fails to
		 match in some other way required by the request.

       BadValue  Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request.
		 Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined by
		 the argument's type is accepted.  Any argument defined as a set of alternatives
		 can generate this error.
