libxcb 1.14 The X C Binding (XCB) library
libxcb provides an interface to the X Window System protocol, which replaces the current Xlib interface. It has several advantages over Xlib, including:
- size: small, simple library, and lower memory footprint;
- latency hiding: batch several requests and wait for the replies later;
- direct protocol access: interface and protocol correspond exactly;
- proven thread support: transparently access XCB from multiple threads;
- easy extension implementation: interfaces auto-generated from XML-XCB.
