Learning to use X11

Author: Benjamin D. Thomas

"A tutorial discussing how to use X11 fully and effectively.

all the necessary commands were usually built right into the language. Later, when I moved to C and UNIX, things were no longer simple. Not only does
C not include any graphics manipulation functions, per se, but all graphical output in UNIX has to go through the standard UNIX windowing system: the
X Window System, release 11, version 6.6 (its current incarnation), or X11 for short."
