About this Course

The X Window System is very large. It has many different versions although things are now becoming fairly standardised and established.

This course will not attempt to cover all the X system. We will only look at important parts of the system.

More importantly certain concepts about GUI design and programming will be studied.

X Windows provides functionality via a vast set of subroutine libraries. These may be called from a variety of high level languages.

They are most easily called from C programs. We will only look at C program examples in this course.

We will not get heavily involved in C - basically we will just be calling functions and setting variables and data structures from our C programs.
