libXext provides an X Window System client interface to several extensions to the X protocol. The supported protocol extensions are: - DOUBLE-BUFFER (DBE), the Double Buffer extension; - DPMS, the VESA Display Power Management System extension; - Extended-Visual-Information (EVI), an extension for gathering extra information about the X server's visuals; - LBX, the Low Bandwidth X extension; - MIT-SHM, the MIT X client/server shared memory extension; - MIT-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD, a miscellaneous extension by MIT; - Multi-Buffering, the multi-buffering and stereo display extension; - SECURITY, the X security extension; - SHAPE, the non-rectangular shaped window extension; - SYNC, the X synchronization extension; - TOG-CUP, the Open Group's Colormap Utilization extension; - XC-APPGROUP, the X Consortium's Application Group extension; - XC-MISC, the X Consortium's resource ID querying extension; - XTEST, the X test extension (this is one of two client-side implementations; the other is in the libXtst library, provided by the libxtst6 package); libXext also provides a small set of utility functions to aid authors of client APIs for X protocol extensions. This package contains the documentation for the included protocol extension libraries. Non-developers likely have little use for this package.
