_____________________ GUILE-XCB Mark Witmer email@example.com _____________________ Table of Contents _________________ 1 Overview 2 Samples and Documentation 3 Installation and Prerequisites 4 Project Status and Caveats 1 Overview ========== Guile XCB is an X11 client library written entirely in Guile. It makes use of the Guile compiler and virtual machine to turn XML descriptions of the X protocol provided by the XCB project into Guile object code files. Support is included for the core X protocol and twenty-seven extensions. Guile XCB also includes some simple code for running asynchronous event loops. 2 Samples and Documentation =========================== Samples using Guile XCB can be found in the xcb/xml/samples directory. They include: - tinywm.scm: A Guile XCB implementation of tinywm - win.scm: A simple demonstration of creating a window and receiving events - randr.scm: A subset of the xrandr command line tool's functionality More detailed documentation resides in the texinfo manual included in this distribution. 3 Installation and Prerequisites ================================ You can use the typical ./configure, make, make install chain to build Guile XCB. Guile XCB requires the latest release of Guile (2.0.9). 4 Project Status and Caveats ============================ - The full XCB stack is implemented; however, many of the extensions haven't been tested. - Extensions that send large requests are probably going to be too slow for practical use. In a future release, void and byte lists will be represented as bytevectors, not regular vectors. - Guile XCB includes a stripped-down Scheme implementation of Xauth that only supports UNIX sockets for now; it doesn't pick the "best" authentication method available, just the first. - XPRINT is excluded because it's deprecated and its XML file has just enough special cases in it that it wasn't worth including. Some other deprecated extensions are included simply because there was no reason not to.
