    X11 api documentation?

    Where is it possible to find X11 API's documentation and tutorials for it. I have done google searches for "X11 API", and it doesnt turn up tutorials or info at all, except for some obscure german sites.

    I think it's a protocol, and not an API.

    Yeah, ive looked there, but thats mainly info for the system itself and configuration, not the programming for it. The only api they have some documentation from is the Xv api(Xvideo), which isnt what I need, I need the API calls themselves for setting up windows,etc.

    I'm looking for this too. It's pretty difficult to find info.

    Is <X11/Xlib.h> the linux equivalent to <windows.h> ? The only info I can ever turn up is QT info. I don't like the idea of paying trolltech royalties for commercial software. Honestly I don't like the idea of using other people's wrappers either.

    Ev, you may try this:

    http://www.the-labs.com/X11/XLib-Manual/

    I haven't managed to read much of it but it may work.

    it may just work.....thanks brain. Im with you on hating to use other people's wrappers, if I want wrappers, I am the type to make my own, not pay $200+ to use someone elses.
