       Xmark - summarize x11perf results

       /usr/bin/Xmark datafile

       Xmark  is a shell script that reads the indicated datafile and compiles
       a benchmark which it writes to standard output.  It writes  three  num-

              A weighted performance number for the x11perf results.

              A  weighted  performance  number  for a standard SparcStation 1,
              with SunOS 4.1.2, X11R5 Xsun, and a CG3 dumb Color Frame Buffer.

              The Xmark, which is the ratio of the two numbers above.

       The datafile must be an ordinary file, produced by x11perf in the  fol-
       lowing way:

       x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXcopy GXxor -all > datafile

       It is possible to run the GXcopy and GXxor tests separately, as long as
       they are concatenated to the same output file:
       x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXcopy -all > datafile
       x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXxor -all >> datafile
       x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXxor -all > datafile
       x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXcopy -all >> datafile
