README

x2x
===

Overview
--------

x2x allows the keyboard, mouse on one X display to be used to control another X
display. It also shares X clipboards between the displays.

When built/run on Cygwin it may be run on Windows desktop to control X display.

License
-------

x2x is under MIT/BSD license.

Windows support includes code under GPL2 or later.

Call for help
-------------

x2x has a long history. It was born in the times when life was hard, window
managers were simple and displays were rectangle. Several implicit assumptions
survived during the x2x lifetime, and now need reconsideration. As x2x is simple
(however, it has accumulated inner knowledge of X11 implementations), we are
looking for brave person who can read and understand whole x2x and will write
new x2x, adapted to the modern life of dynamically attached and detached
displays, complex data transferring through the X selections and Xinerama.

Authors
-------

x2x was initially developed in DEC by David Chaiken.
Current maintainer is Mikhail Gusarov.
