     (Contraction of "pixel map").  A 3 dimensional array of bits
     corresponding to a 2 dimensional array of pixels.  It is
     used, for example, in the X Window System to describe a
     memory region where graphics can be drawn without affecting

     of expose events, icon images or for animation.  Compare
