X-Windows Base Driver

This driver represents a basic driver for all system-dependent drivers implemented in the X-Windows system. The implementation uses the XLIB API functions. It was developed using X11R4, but works in more recent versions, such as X11R6.

This is included in the main library in AIX, SunOS and IRIX. To use it in Linux and BSD you must link with the cdx11 library instead of the cd main library.

Note: The coordinates internally implemented by the video driver use 16-bit integers. Therefore, if a coordinate with less than -32k or more than 32k is defined, it will be interpreted incorrectly.
