libXmu - X miscellaneous utility routines library

This library contains miscellaneous utilities and is not part of the Xlib standard. It contains routines which only use public interfaces so that it may be layered on top of any proprietary implementation of Xlib or Xt.

It is intended to support clients in the X.Org distribution; vendors may choose not to distribute this library if they wish. Therefore, applications developers who depend on this library should be prepared to treat it as part of their software base when porting.

API documentation for this library is provided in the docs directory in DocBook format. If xmlto is installed, it will be converted to supported formats and installed in $(docdir) unless --disable-docs is passed to configure.

All questions regarding this software should be directed at the Xorg mailing list:
