X Window System Toolkit: The Complete Programmer's Guide and Specification : X Version 11, Releases 6 and 6.1
This authoritative guide to the X Window System Toolkit (Xt) is written by the toolkit's leading designers and is a must-have for every developer using Xt-based widget libraries such as OSF/Motif. The first part, the Programmer's Guide, describes the toolkit's various features and explains in detail how to use them. It contains over 100 pages of example programs. The second part, the X Toolkit Specification, describes precisely how the features operate. This new, second edition, is fully updated and revised to take into account the new features incorporated into X11 releases 5 through 7 of the X Window System. Explanatory material tells what features were introduced with each individual release.
For the reader's convenience, each chapter of the Programmer's Guide contains an application writer's section and a widget writer's section. The Specification section contains the full text of the X Consortium's official X Toolkit Intrinsics standard. This section describes the X Toolkit's capabilities more succinctly and precisely, and is the definitive reference source for answering questions about how a proper toolkit implementation is supposed to operate.
