X11 miscellaneous extensions library (development headers)

libXext provides an X Window System client interface to several extensions to the X protocol.

The supported protocol extensions are:

 - DOUBLE-BUFFER (DBE), the Double Buffer extension;
 - DPMS, the VESA Display Power Management System extension;
 - Extended-Visual-Information (EVI), an extension for gathering extra
   information about the X server's visuals;
 - LBX, the Low Bandwidth X extension;
 - MIT-SHM, the MIT X client/server shared memory extension;
 - MIT-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD, a miscellaneous extension by MIT;
 - Multi-Buffering, the multi-buffering and stereo display extension;
 - SECURITY, the X security extension;
 - SHAPE, the non-rectangular shaped window extension;
 - SYNC, the X synchronization extension;
 - TOG-CUP, the Open Group's Colormap Utilization extension;
 - XC-APPGROUP, the X Consortium's Application Group extension;
 - XC-MISC, the X Consortium's resource ID querying extension;
 - XTEST, the X test extension (this is one of two client-side
   implementations; the other is in the libXtst library, provided by the
   libxtst6 package);

libXext also provides a small set of utility functions to aid authors of client APIs for X protocol extensions.

This package contains the development headers for the library found in libxext6. Non-developers likely have little use for this package.
