XBM bitmap files are supported for reading and writing by the GDB library. In particular, GDB supports the reading of both the X10 and X11 XBM formats, but only supports the writing of the X11 XBM format.

XBM is a 1-bit deep bitmap format. XBM files are text files which look like C code. They are often used to store user interface icon images in the X Window system.

Export of X Window Bitmap files is supported. These files are exported with a type of "XBM".

No georeferencing or other auxiliary information is exported.
