icon-slicer

utility for generating icon themes and libXcursor cursor themes

Description

The inputs to icon-slicer are conceptually:

 - A set of multi-layer images, one for each size
 - Am XML theme description file

Each image contains all the cursors arranged in a grid; For cursors the layers are:

 - A layer with a dot for the hotspot of each cursor
 - The main image or first animation frame for multi-frame animated
   cursors
 - The second animation frame for multi-frame animated cursors
 - ...

For icons, the layers are:

 - A layer with the images
 - An optional layer with attachment points for emblems
 - An optional layer with boxes for embedding text into icons

In practice, since loading of multilayer images is not supported by standard image libraries, each layer is input as a separate image file.

The theme description file contains, among other things, information about the source images to read, the location of each named cursor or icon within the grid, and a set of aliases from names to other names.
