I see. It´s Ok so far, but I can not be satisfied to redraw a 800x800 or
even bigger Image every few seconds I got a new Line of data...
It is nessesary to see the aquired data online.
I´m rewriting my STM/AFM (Scanning Tunneling Microscopy/Atomic Force
Software from the libxforms-0.88...
My previously solution was a selfbuild xforms object, where I do my own
for (supporting 8/15/16/24bit) and palette mapping using the xlib
(with MIT-SHM support).
My object has some very fast inline functions to set single pixels/lines
uses calls like
XPutImage(disp, win, gc, ximage, xs,ys, x0+xs,y0+ys, w,h);
XShmPutImage(disp, win, gc, ximage, xs,ys, x0+xs,y0+ys, w,h, False);
to refresh the image... after I changed some data in ximage...

If there is a nice and fast way solving my problem, I´ll be very
happy to forget about xlib hacking....
PS: Who knows how gimp does the drawing/refreshing in a area ?
