============= SUMMARY % OCaml bindings for the Xlib library. ============= ATTRIBUTION % Copyright (C) 2008, 2009, 2010 Florent Monnier Contact: <email@example.com> ============= LICENSE % This library is released under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License, with the special exception on linking described in file COPYING.txt. ============= HOMEPAGE % http://www.linux-nantes.org/%7Efmonnier/OCaml/Xlib/ ============= DESCRIPTION % OCaml-Xlib is a work in progress Xlib bindings for OCaml. It also includes a GLX module for OpenGL windowing, and the very early beginning of Xt/Intrinsics. There are 3 OCaml-OpenGL bindings: LablGL, GLCaml and glMLite. The GLX module does not have any particular dependency across any of these OpenGL bindings, so it can be used with either of them. For exchanging pixmaps as textures GLCaml and glMLite use either strings or bigarrays, for LablGL interoperability convert the strings or the bigarrays with its module Raw. Though the examples use glMLite. ============= INSTALL % To install `make install` will only install the Xlib module. `make install_all` will install all the Xlib, GLX and Xt modules. If you only need X and GLX, use `make install_x install_glx` The default prefix is `ocamlc -where`/Xlib you can change the destination install dir with: `make install PREFIX=/some/path` ============= DOCUMENTATION % Get the HTML ocamldoc generated documentation with the command: `make doc` ============= EXAMPLES % For examples of use, run the *.sh scripts. ============= EXTENSIONS % There is a module for the GLX extension texture_from_pixmap: http://www.opengl.org/registry/specs/EXT/texture_from_pixmap.txt To build and install, run: `make glx_p2t` `make install_glx_p2t` ============= TODO % XKB On my computer the demo texture_from_pixmap.ml runs right in interpreted mode, but segfaults in native mode. ============= FOREIGN PROJECTS % There are 2 other projects related to X programming in OCaml. ___ Fabrice Le Fessant has released an xlib library too. And it is not a binding/wrapper of the C Xlib, it is an xlib written natively in OCaml. This package is the base for the projects 'EFuns' and 'GwML': http://caml.inria.fr/cgi-bin/hump.fr.cgi?contrib=183 http://caml.inria.fr/cgi-bin/hump.fr.cgi?contrib=225 The license of this project is not clearly written in the archieve, I have written to its author to ask him, and it can be used under the GPL license. The default prefix for this pure ocaml xlib is `ocamlc -where`/xlib (notice "xlib" != "Xlib") _____ There is also the package "Olibrt" written by Daniel de Rauglaudre, which contains basic bindings to the C Xlib, find it here: http://pauillac.inria.fr/%7Eddr/olibrt/ It is released under the BSD license. ============= CONTRIBUTORS % Arlen Cuss, 2011-01-28: fix for the function xFetchName. ============= EOF %
