Download XDisplayControlPluginV2-1-3.sar

The XDisplayControlPlugin package provides primitives for controlling the connection to an X display server for Squeak. Currently, this is useful for the Unix VM, but in principle can be used for any platform that can provide an X server, such as Win32, Mac OS, or OpenVMS. A running Squeak image may call these primitives to become headless, to open a display on an X server from a headless Squeak, or to connect itself to another X server.

XDisplayControlPlugin should be built as an external plugin with VMMaker. This is because it calls functions in the VM which are now resident in an external shared library (vm-display-X11.so), and XDisplayControlPlugin must also be built as a shared library in order for the linkage to work properly.
