Re: glib and Xlib

mmmm, as i understand, xlib is a graphic toolkit library for the x server, so it is not widely portable and depends on the xserver.

glib doesnt depends on xlib. GTK does like any other api.

xlibs apps. are very very ugly and mostly are hard to use and program.

i think that glib is adding portability to gtk and uniformity on functions names, etc.

What is glib adding that the GTK + compared to Xlib ?

All what is possible with glib with Xlib is feasible, then why create a new library.

Best regards.
