This spot of code extends Perl Image::Base to draw into Gtk2-Perl windows, pixmaps and pixbufs, including file loading and saving to pixbufs.

Pixbufs support various file formats and don't require an X server for drawing. As of Gtk 2.22 the writable formats are PNG, JPEG, TIFF, BMP and ICO. Several more formats can be read but not written, including GIF, XPM, XBM, SVG and PCX.
