       X11::Protocol::Other -- miscellaneous X11::Protocol helpers


        use X11::Protocol::Other;


       This is some helper functions for "X11::Protocol".


       Nothing is exported by default, but the functions can be requested in usual "Exporter"

           use X11::Protocol::Other 'visual_is_dynamic';
           if (visual_is_dynamic ($X, $visual_id)) {

       Or just called with full package name

           use X11::Protocol::Other;
           if (X11::Protocol::Other::visual_is_dynamic ($X, $visual_id)) {

       There's no ":all" tag since this module is meant as a grab-bag of functions and to import
       as-yet unknown things would be asking for name clashes.


   Screen Finding
       "$number = root_to_screen ($X, $root)"
       "$hashref = root_to_screen_info ($X, $root)"
           Return the screen number or screen info hash for a given root window.  $root can be
           any XID integer on $X.  If it's not one of the root windows then the return is

       "$number = default_colormap_to_screen ($X, $colormap)"
       "$hashref = default_colormap_to_screen_info ($X, $colormap)"
           Return the screen number or screen info hash for a given default colormap.  $colormap
           can be any XID integer on $X.  If it's not one of the screen default colormaps then
           the return is "undef".

       "$bool = visual_is_dynamic ($X, $visual_id)"
       "$bool = visual_class_is_dynamic ($X, $visual_class)"
           Return true if the given visual is dynamic, meaning colormap entries on it can be
           changed to change the colour of a given pixel value.

           $visual_id is one of the visual ID numbers, ie. one of the keys in "$X->{'visuals'}".
           Or $visual_class is a VisualClass string like "PseudoColor" or corresponding integer
           such as 3.

   Window Info
       "($width, $height) = window_size ($X, $window)"
       "$visual_id = window_visual ($X, $window)"
           Return the size or visual ID of a given window.

           $window is an integer XID on $X.  If it's one of the root windows then the return
           values are from the screen info hash in $X, otherwise the server is queried with
           "GetGeometry()" (for the size) or "GetWindowAttributes()" (for the visual).

           These functions are handy when there's a good chance $window might be a root window
           and therefore not need a server round trip.

       "@atoms = get_property_atoms($X, $window, $property)"
           Get from $window (integer XID) a list-of-atoms property $property (atom integer).  The
           return is a list of atom integers, possibly an empty list.  If $property doesn't exist
           or is not atoms then return an empty list.

       "set_property_atoms($X, $window, $property, @atoms)"
           Set on $window (integer XID) a list-of-atoms property $property (atom integer) as the
           given list of @atoms (possibly empty).

   Colour Parsing
       "($red16, $green16, $blue16) = hexstr_to_rgb($str)"
           Parse a given RGB colour string like "#FF00FF" into 16-bit red, green, blue
           components.  The return values are always in the range 0 to 65535.  The strings
           recognised are 1, 2, 3 or 4 digit hex.


           If $str is unrecognised then the return is an empty list, so for instance

               my @rgb = hexstr_to_rgb($str)
                 or die "Unrecognised colour: $str";

           The digits of the 1, 2 and 3 forms are replicated as necessary to give a 16-bit range.
           For example 3-digit style "#321FFF000" gives return values 0x3213, 0xFFFF, 0.  Or
           1-digit "#F0F" is 0xFFFF, 0, 0xFFFF.  Notice "F" expands to 0xFFFF so an "F", "FF" or
           "FFF" all mean full saturation the same as a 4-digit "FFFF".

           Would it be worth recognising the Xcms style "rgb:RR/GG/BB"?  Perhaps that's best left
           to full Xcms, or general colour conversion modules.  The X11R6 X(7) man page describes
           the "rgb:" form, but just "#" is much more common.
