Status XAddConnectionWatch(display, procedure, client_data)
Status XRemoveConnectionWatch(display, procedure, client_data)
void XProcessInternalConnection(display, fd)
Status XInternalConnectionNumbers(display, fd_return, count_return)
This function can be called at any time after a display is opened. If internal connections already exist, the registered procedure will immediately be called for each of them, before XAddConnectionWatch returns. XAddConnectionWatch returns a nonzero status if the procedure is successfully registered; otherwise, it returns zero.
The registered procedure should not call any Xlib functions. If the procedure directly or indirectly causes the state of internal connections or watch procedures to change, the result is not defined. If Xlib has been initialized for threads, the procedure is called with the display locked and the result of a call by the procedure to any Xlib function that locks the display is not defined unless the executing thread has externally locked the display using XLockDisplay.
The XRemoveConnectionWatch function removes a previously registered connection watch procedure. The client_data must match the client_data used when the procedure was initially registered.
The XProcessInternalConnection function processes input available on an internal connection. This function should be called for an internal connection only after an operating system facility (for example, select or poll) has indicated that input is available; otherwise, the effect is not defined.
The XInternalConnectionNumbers function returns a list of the file descriptors for all internal connections currently open for the specified display. When the allocated list is no longer needed, free it by using XFree. This functions returns a nonzero status if the list is successfully allocated; otherwise, it returns zero.
