Basically the game I'm trying to do displays a map of the world, which as
players take over countries get filled in with that players colour, and as
each country has a black border I just need to be able to do a flood fill.
Warcraft is still just a smidegon beyond my capabilites :)

I'll probably end up going with imlib, as I'll probably want to magnify
the map (1500x500 looks pretty small on a 1024x768 desktop).

As for the xlib programming manual it's exact url is (I just checked :)
