XFlush(3)				  XLIB FUNCTIONS				XFlush(3)

NAME
       XFlush, XSync, XEventsQueued, XPending - handle output buffer or event queue

SYNTAX
       int XFlush(Display *display);

       int XSync(Display *display, Bool discard);

       int XEventsQueued(Display *display, int mode);

       int XPending(Display *display);

ARGUMENTS
       discard	 Specifies a Boolean value that indicates whether XSync discards all events on
		 the event queue.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       mode	 Specifies the mode.  You can pass QueuedAlready, QueuedAfterFlush, or
		 QueuedAfterReading.

DESCRIPTION
       The XFlush function flushes the output buffer.  Most client applications need not use this
       function because the output buffer is automatically flushed as needed by calls to XPend-
       ing, XNextEvent, and XWindowEvent.  Events generated by the server may be enqueued into
       the library's event queue.

       The XSync function flushes the output buffer and then waits until all requests have been
       received and processed by the X server.	Any errors generated must be handled by the error
       handler.  For each protocol error received by Xlib, XSync calls the client application's
       error handling routine (see section 11.8.2).  Any events generated by the server are
       enqueued into the library's event queue.

       Finally, if you passed False, XSync does not discard the events in the queue.  If you
       passed True, XSync discards all events in the queue, including those events that were on
       the queue before XSync was called.  Client applications seldom need to call XSync.

       If mode is QueuedAlready, XEventsQueued returns the number of events already in the event
       queue (and never performs a system call).  If mode is QueuedAfterFlush, XEventsQueued
       returns the number of events already in the queue if the number is nonzero.  If there are
       no events in the queue, XEventsQueued flushes the output buffer, attempts to read more
       events out of the application's connection, and returns the number read.  If mode is
       QueuedAfterReading, XEventsQueued returns the number of events already in the queue if the
       number is nonzero.  If there are no events in the queue, XEventsQueued attempts to read
       more events out of the application's connection without flushing the output buffer and
       returns the number read.

       XEventsQueued always returns immediately without I/O if there are events already in the
       queue.  XEventsQueued with mode QueuedAfterFlush is identical in behavior to XPending.
       XEventsQueued with mode QueuedAlready is identical to the XQLength function.

       The XPending function returns the number of events that have been received from the X
       server but have not been removed from the event queue.  XPending is identical to
       XEventsQueued with the mode QueuedAfterFlush specified.
