Input Method (GUI)
Input method support on window systems.
API provided by libm17n-gui.so.
GUI support for a window system.
This section defines the m17n GUI API concerning M-text drawing and inputting under a window system.
All the definitions here are independent of window systems. An actual library file, however, can depend on a specific window system. For instance, the library file m17n-X.so is an example of implementation of the m17n GUI API for the X Window System.
Actually the GUI API is mainly for toolkit libraries or to implement XOM, not for direct use from application programs.
