NAME

       xosd_create - Create a new XOSD object

SYNOPSIS

       #include <xosd.h>

       xosd *xosd_create (int number_lines);

DESCRIPTION

       xosd_init  creates a new xosd window that can be used to display textual or numerical data
       on a X11 display in a unmanaged, shaped window that appears to be transparent. It provides
       a similar effect to the on-screen display of many televisions and video recorders.

ARGUMENTS

       number_lines
              The  maximum number of lines of text that the window can display. This value cannot
              be changed.

RETURN VALUE

       On success a pointer to a new xosd object is returned, otherwise NULL is returned.

ENVIRONMENT

       DISPLAY
              The environment variable that determines which X11 display the XOSD window appears.

       char *xosd_error
              A string to a text string describing the error.

HISTORY

       The xosd_create function first appeared in version 2.0 of the XOSD library, replacing  the
       now depricated xosd_init function.

AUTHORS
