Question Change an Icon

Dear Experts
I have made an Icon and now I am going to change a file Icon to new one. I am using Solaris 8.
1- What is the best format to save an Icon
2- How can I change the Icon of a certain type or just one file or folder to the new Icon which I have designed.
Any advises would be highly appreciated.
Best Regards
Reza Nazarian

i'm not sure with solaris but in hp i have done this by editing the $HOME/.dt/types/datatypes.dt file which contains information about the file types, attributes and the icon of course.

and I hope the best way to store an icon is in the .pm type.

best regards.Smilie
