It is literally just called bitmap(1). I've just discovered it and its awesome.

Edit: Sorry about that, I mixed up two different file formats

Yeah, that was my problem. However, I've figured out how to make .bpm tiles with bitmap(1) so that's what I'll do.
Just set them with xsetroot like so:
PHP Code:
xsetroot -bitmap wall.xbm -bg '#8998aa' -fg '#464d56' 
The only downside to using bitmaps over pixmaps is that bitmaps only supports 2 colours

As it turns out, feh(1) supports .xpm pixmaps. You can simply run
PHP Code:
feh --bg-tile wall.xpm
