Utilities to display images in X11

These utilities display several types of images under X11, or load images onto the X11 root window.

A variety of options are available to modify images prior to viewing. These options include clipping, dithering, depth reduction, zoom either X or Y axis independently or both at once, brightening or darkening, input gamma correction, and image merging. When applicable, these options are applied automatically e.g. a color image to be displayed on a monochrome screen will be dithered automatically. An utility xlito is provided that allows these viewing options to be appended to the image files.
