                                        the  new  pixmap  will be
                                        used for drawing.

DESCRIPTION

       These  procedures  are  identical  to  the Xlib procedures
       XCreatePixmap and XFreePixmap, except that they have extra
       code  to manage X resource identifiers so that identifiers
       for deleted pixmaps can be reused in the  future.   It  is
       important  for  Tk  applications  to  use these procedures
       rather  than  XCreatePixmap  and  XFreePixmap;   otherwise
       long-running  applications may run out of resource identi­
       fiers.

       Tk_GetPixmap creates a pixmap suitable for drawing  in  d,
       with  dimensions  given  by  width, height, and depth, and
       returns its identifier.  Tk_FreePixmap destroys the pixmap
       given  by  pixmap and makes its resource identifier avail­
       able for reuse.
