There is no pixmap in Standard Tk.
However, STk-3.0 provides a pixmap extension if you have the Xpm library on your system.
STk-3.1 provides the Ioi Kim Lam pixmap package which does not need the
Xpm library to work.

Pixmap items are available through the image subcommand:

        (require "pixmap")
        (pack (canvas '.c))
        (define img (image 'create 'pixmap :file "foo.xpm"))
        (.c 'create 'image 40 40 :image img)

Hope it helps
