A pixmap can be replicated in two dimensions to tile a region.
The pixmap itself is also known as a tile.
A CLUE object that provides support for animation and other types of
time-sensitive user interfaces. A timer causes :timer events to
be dispatched to a specific contact for processing.
A time value, expressed in milliseconds, typically since the last
server reset. Timestamp values wrap around (after about 49.7 days).
The server, given its current time is represented by timestamp T,
always interprets timestamps from clients by treating half of the
timestamp space as being earlier in time than T and half of the
timestamp space as being later in time than T. One timestamp value
(named CurrentTime) is never generated by the server; this value is
reserved for use in requests to represent the current server time.
A contact whose parent is a root. A top-level contact is usually a
composite at the top of a hierarchy of other contacts created by an
A subclass of shell that is used to communicate with a session
A subclass of shell that provides full window manager
A subclass of shell that a window manager typically will unmap
when its owner becomes unmapped or iconified and will not allow to be
A degenerate case of direct color in which the subfields in the pixel
value directly encode the corresponding RGB values. That is, the
colormap has predefined read-only RGB values. The values are typically
(near-)linear increasing ramps.
An arbitrary atom used to identify the interpretation of property
data. Types are completely uninterpreted by the server; they are
solely for the benefit of clients.
