xorg-x11-xtrans-devel - X.Org X11 developmental X transport library… more info»
xtrans is a library of code that is shared among various X packages to handle network protocol transport in a modular fashion, allowing a single place to add new transport types. It is used by the X server, libX11, libICE, the X font server, and related components. It is however, *NOT* a shared library, but code which each consumer includes and builds it's own copy of with various #ifdef flags to make each copy slightly different. To support this in the modular build system, this package simply installs the C source files into $(prefix)/include/X11/Xtrans and installs a pkg-config file and an autoconf m4 macro file with the flags needed to use it. Documentation of the xtrans API can be found in the xorg-docs package, in PostScript format in xorg-docs/hardcopy/xtrans/Xtrans.PS.gz and in the original troff format in xorg-docs/specs/xtrans/Xtrans.mm .
