Icon-Compositor 0.0

The Icon-Compositor package contains the icomp(1) command, which is used to compose icons from separate icon elements. For example, it is possible to layer an application icon over a generic document icon to construct a project specific document icon.

The icomp command is designed to work with make(1) so that theme changes are easily propagated. This means it can be scripted so it can part of a build system. This holds possibilities for “building” icons from common base elements. For example, all icons featuring a folder or the project logo are consistent. This has the effect that changes are only necessary in one place; software engineering techniques are available.
