xcursorgen - create an X cursor file from a collection of PNG images


xcursorgen [ -V ] [ --version ] [ -? ] [ --help ] [ -p dir ] [ --prefix dir ] [ config-file [ output-file ] ]


Xcursorgen reads the config-file to find the list of cursor images along with their hotspot and nominal size information. Xcursorgen converts all of the images to Xcursor format and writes them to the output-file.

Each line in the config file is of the form:
<size> <xhot> <yhot> <filename> <ms-delay>

Multiple images with the same <size> are used to create animated cursors, the <ms-delay> value on each line indicates how long each image should be displayed before switching to the next. <ms-delay> can be elided for static cursors.

If config-file is not specified, or is specified as "-", standard input is used for the configuration file. If output-file is not specified, or is specified as "-", standard output is used for the output file.
