    X window System question

    This is not actually a Linux programming question but I would be very glad if you let me know a site with relatively new tutorials about X Window System programming (UNIX) or some help please.
    Thank you in advance

    Then it's correct place is the tech forum (moved).

    How about
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    You probably want to use some toolkit such as GTK instead of writing X11 code directly.
    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who cringed when reading the beginning of this sentence and those who salivated to how superior they are for understanding something as simple as binary.

    That depends on the particular type project and assumes a great deal about the target audience. Learning how to write directly for the Xorg/Xfree86 would be a great deal "safer" in that you would KNOW that if you write for an older version of the server, the code will work on a newer version of the server (in most cases). Not every flavor of *nix has the GTK installed by default.
