  1. xv

    The term "xv" doesn't have a general definition as it is typically a roman numeral equating to 15. However, in different contexts, it could hold different meanings. It could be an abbreviation, it could refer to the XV series of Subaru, among others. Therefore, without a specific context, a general definition isn't quite applicable.


  1. xv

    xv is a shareware program written by John Bradley to display and modify digital images under the X Window System. While popular in the early 1990s, no official releases have been made since December 1994. Bradley was unable to negotiate the LZW patent licence necessary for encoding the then-popular GIF format. The patent has now expired, so this legal constraint is no longer relevant. Until at least 2000, Bradley collected third-party updates to xv, for example support for the PNG image format. These were published as source code patches only. Additional patches are still created and maintained by volunteers. xv can be run from either the command line or through a graphical interface. It distinguishes itself from many other bitmap viewing and editing programs with a very efficient interface in which the user edits just the parameters of a fixed pipeline of processing steps, rather than modifying the bitmap directly in each operation. As a result, the user can easily undo operations out of order, rather than only being able to undo the respective last operation. While this concept limits what xv can do compared to some alternatives, the functionality it provides can be applied very conveniently and efficiently.
