| X11 Libraries & Toolkits
Xclasses is a C++ layout library for the X Window System. All objects (called
gadgets) are font sensitiv, i.e. their size changes with the size of the used
screen font and the size of the window. All this is done by Xclasses itself!
All objects (gadgets) have the same base class (class gadget) so there are all
used the same. Gadgets are put together in groups (class group also bases on
gadget) which manage the correct size of all gadgets (and/or groups!) inside.
Xclasses is completely written in C++ so it is really object orientated! But
C-Users may use it because most C compilers support C++ and for using Xclasses
you neddn't to know much about C++.
Xclasses is easy to use, no pointer or handles to manage or remember - simply
classes (for C users: like structs with functions added). If you don't want to
do some special things (like writing a multiplayer arcade game or a new window
manager) you don't even need to know anything about X-Windows functions and how
it works - Xclasses has its own classes for all of this that put many complex X
functions to some easy functions together.
