To subscribers of the xforms list from Claes Andersson <> :


In a program that I'm writing, I need to show an animation with 600X600 pixmaps.
The problem is that this is terribly slow and I suspect that it has to do with
the picture being sent back and forth between the server and the client. I don't
know what it would be that takes about two seconds in the process else... I'm
using Xlib calls to display it since the XPM format is tremendously cumbersome
if you want to display some, you don't know which from time to time, in 24 bits.

Is it possible to do anything to speed this up?

Thanks in advance!
