Developing Imaging Applications with XIE

Mr. Logan describes the X Image Extension and show us how to use it—for the experienced C programmer.
The Complete Example Code

The complete source code for the example discussed in this article, and the library routines needed to build it, can be found at my home page located on the Internet at http://www.users.cts.com/crash/s/slogan/. This article describes just one of over 40 example clients you will find there. My book on XIElib programming, Developing Imaging Applications with XIElib, published by Prentice Hall, goes into much greater detail than I could provide in an article of this length. More information on my book can be found on my web site as well or at http://www.prenhall.com/. If you have any questions about XIE, this article, my other examples, or for that matter X11, please feel free to drop me an e-mail.

Depending upon the phase of the moon, you'll find Syd developing software for Macintosh (Apple's MacX 1.5 and 2.0), the X Window System (Z-Mail for UNIX) and even Windows NT (NetManage's NFS client). He was a member of the team that produced the XIE example implementation for X11R6. In his spare time he enjoys buzzing around the San Diego coastline in Cessnas and Piper Archer IIs. He can be reached at slogan@cts.com.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
