This directory to provide support scripts, examples and configuration
file for the use of the Icon Library. This section is highly dependent
on contributions of the users of the library. Please contribute.
- Numerous shell and perl scripts I use in managing this icon
library. About half of the scripts assume that Jef Poskanzer's
PbmPlus (or NetPbm) Filter Package is in the users path. I make no
guarantee on these scripts, though I use them almost everyday.
The latest scripts, such as those used to generate GIF animations
are now using the larger image filter package ImageMagick.
Gifmap Index Generator
- This directory contains the perl script "gifmap" which is used to
generate the framed indexs thoughout this library, in particular the
Example Image Pages of the icons that is present within.
Major thanks goes to Bob Friesenhahn <email@example.com> for this marvalious program and putting up with my hundreds of
suggestions and additions to make this program interface well with this
- Various configuration files (or segments of), to configure specific
application programs to use sections of the library. May of these
were donated to this section to help others trying the same thing.
Color Resource File Examples.
- Various Resources to force programs to use the standard color table.
Some applications available suffer from the "Angry Fruit Salad"
Syndrome, and as such use just about any color that the developer

for these applications using the standard color table.

uses the lynx program to grab the Gzipped Tar file of these
- This is a file which will generate a list of all commands producing
"good" background display patterns to be found in this library.
Lots more such images are also contained within this file which have
been commented out as being not suitable.
The file is filtered with the `C Pre-Processor' to allow it to be
more compact and for easy modification of the X commands used to set
your displays background. Look at the comments at the top of the
file for more information on using it.
You may also like to download the
randomline perl script to randomly pick a image from this file.
Suggestions for alternative colors for bitmap backgrounds are most
