NAME

X11::XCB - perl bindings for libxcb

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use X11::XCB::Connection;
  my $x = X11::XCB::Connection->new;

  my $window = $x->root->create_child(
    class => WINDOW_CLASS_INPUT_OUTPUT,
    rect => [0, 0, 200, 200],
    background_color => #FF00FF,
  );

  $window->map;



DESCRIPTION

These bindings wrap libxcb (a C library to speak with X11, in many cases better than Xlib in many aspects) and provide a nice object oriented interface to its methods (using Mouse).

Please note that its aim is <B>NOTB> to provide yet another toolkit for creating graphical applications. It is a low-level method of communicating with X11. Use cases include testcases for all kinds of X11 applications, implementing really simple applications which do not require an graphical toolkit (such as GTK, QT, etc.) or command-line utilities which communicate with X11.

<B>WARNINGB>: X11::XCB is in a rather early stage and thus API breaks may happen in future versions. It is not yet widely used.
