X11::XCB(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation X11::XCB(3)

X11::XCB - perl bindings for libxcb

  use X11::XCB::Connection;
  my $x = X11::XCB::Connection->new;
  my $window = $x->root->create_child(
    rect => [0, 0, 200, 200],
    background_color => '#FF00FF',

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 NOT 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.
WARNING: X11::XCB is in a rather early stage and thus API breaks may happen in future versions. It is not yet widely used.

The website of libxcb.
The git webinterface for the development of X11::XCB.
The i3 window manager includes testcases which use X11::XCB.
