Re: CLUE and CLX
CLX programmers actually get handed these ids in
Yes, there were efficiency arguments here, perhaps inconsequential ones.
They don't tell you what to do with them thought
(like how to lookup the associated xlib:window object).
The CLX doc does tell you to use make-window to perform this mapping.
Just to set the record straight, CLX does NOT use resource ID's in
event-handler routines. Event handlers get passed objects, which are
even interned in a hash table to reduce consing. The alpha version of
CLX passed resource ID's, but it was changed in Sept. 87 to pass objects
(structures). CLX does not export make-window, because there's never a
need to use it. It looks like the documentation needs cleaning up.
