DESCRIPTION

       Gets the current attributes for the specified window.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns an xcb_get_window_attributes_cookie_t. Errors have to be handled when calling the
       reply function xcb_get_window_attributes_reply.

       If you want to handle errors in the event loop instead, use
       xcb_get_window_attributes_unchecked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.

ERRORS

       xcb_drawable_error_t
                 TODO: reasons?

       xcb_window_error_t
                 The specified window does not exist.
