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

       The XOSD library  was  originally  written  by  André  Renaud,  and  is
       currenly maintained by Tim Wright. This document was written by Michael
       JasonSmith.
