Post X programming


Hi,
I'm learning programing and I want to know sth about functions delivered with X server.
Whrere can I find quit good guide through them? There is a description of them on www.x.org, but I'm looking for a guide similiar to this about GNU C library on www.gnu.org. There are C functions described by category. Do you know any interesting adress?

If you jus want to program stuff with GUI's you'll want to look more specifically at a toolkit gtk, qt, or something like that. If you really want to know about the stuff deliverd with the X server you'll want to learn about xlib.

For xlib programing take a look at these sites.

Also you might want to take a look at "Xlib Programming Manual (O'Reilly & Associates, Inc.)" It's a bit old, but many of the basic concepts havent changed much. You can probably find a copy at a library somewhere.

Just came across this article, it is focused more on X toolkits, but might still be interesting for you:
