DtWsmChangeBackdrop -- set current workspace's backdrop
The DtWsmChangeBackdrop function works with the CDE workspace manager, dtwm(1), and changes the current workspace's backdrop. Applications
can use this function to implement an interface to the workspace manager.

DtWsmChangeBackdrop sends a message to the CDE workspace manager, dtwm(1), to change the backdrop.
The path argument points to a backdrop file name. The file must be in either X Bitmap file format (with extension .bm) or Pixmap file for-
mat (with extension .pm). The workspace management services look for the file along the same path used for searching icons. The directory
/usr/dt/backdrops is the default directory if the file cannot be found along the icon search path.
root root window of the screen
path file path to bitmap file
