So I need to somehow translate the image I have stored in the flimage object
into a pixmap type. Is this easily done?
I've been checking the XPM Manual included in my linux ditribution and I'm
if I have to do a XpmCreateDataFromImage(), then a XpmCreatePixmapFromData() and
If this is the case, do I know the XImage of the flimage?

Thanks in advance,
