can we create images from text?

I keep looking at Erco's FLTK Cheat Page for inspiration, and try to convert some of this C++ stuff to MurgaLua. Lately I've been looking at this one example, wondering if it's possible for us:
http://seriss.com/people/erco/fltk/#DraggableBoxes
I'm not so much interested in the draggable part as in the fact that he is defining a pixmap within his code. Is this possible in murgaLua? I've done a few tests, but so far have only gotten either an error (no Fl_Pixmap) or simply no image, but I'm wondering if maybe I'm just not using it right. I assume a pixmap and XBM/XPM are not terribly different, but I could be wrong of course.

I'm having trouble figuring if "static Fl_Pixmap G_cat(cat_xpm)" is pretty much the same as "G_cat=fltk:Fl_Pixmap(cat_xpm)", or if I need to do some table parsing, or if this just isn't going to work.

I think it would be awesome if we could define pixmaps like this...no need for external image files.
