     These commands are SAMPLE CLIENTS provided with the XTrap X
     Server Extension Sources, Version 3.3. XTrap is an X Server
     extension which facilitates the capturing of server protocol
     and synthesizing core input events. Information on how to
     obtain these sources can be found in the SOURCES section

     The xtrapreset command is the simplest XTrap client in that
     it merely performs an XQueryExtension() against XTrap.  The
     name "reset" is historical.  The display argument is parsed
     by the X Toolkit and specifies the display where XTrap is to
     be loaded; see X(1).

     xtrapinfo displays general configuration information as a
     result of an GetAvailable XTrap request to the specified
     server.  It is simply designed to test the request/response
     mechanism of the XTrap extension and client library as well
     as display the configuration information that it finds.

     xtrapstats tests the event and request vectoring of the
     server extension by configuring XTrap to collect usage
     statistics on all core input events and requests.  It has a
     primitive command-line interface for showing the counters,
     zeroing out the counters, and quitting the program.

     xtrapout tests the output transport from the XTrap extension
     to the XTrap client library. As an aside, since xtrapout has
     the capability of "recording" events and requests it
     receives, xtrapout is ideal for providing input to test
     xtrapin. Since events are the only concern for the input
     transport, the -e flag can be specified to indicate that all
     input events (and only events) should be recorded by

xtrap(1)            UNIX Programmer's Manual             xtrap(1)

     xtrapout. script is specified primarily for non-U*IX
     machines which don't support I/O re-direction easily. The -v
     flag is used to force recording of all requests and input

     xtrapin is used to test the input transport to the XTrap
     server extension.  As stated earlier, it's input can be pro-
     vided by xtrapout using the -e qualifier.  While it's pri-
     mary function is for testing XTrap and serving as an example
     for XTrap functionality, it can reasonably used as a primi-
     tive "playback" client for X sessions.

     xtrapchar parses ANSI character sequences including applica-
     tion program sequences to synthesize input events to X Win-
     dow servers using the XTrap server extension. The intent of
     this program is to serve as a sample implementation for
     interfacing character-based alternative input sources into X
     servers (e.g. voice recognition systems).  Another applica-
     tion might be "remote keyboards". The -v flag causes the
     program to display XTrap configuration information and
     echo's characters processed to stdout.  If present, this
     must be the first argument.

     Note: xtrapchar has only been used with Digital Workstations
     using the LK201 compatible keyboard.  Though reasonable
     effort was done to maintain portability,  no claims are made
     as to the current level of portability to non-DEC servers
     for this program.

     The xtrapproto command is a regression test designed to test
     the basic XTrap protocol between a client and server.  If a
     given implementation is suspect, the results of this test
     should be sent to an XTrap implementor and/or developer.


     -d[isplay] display
         Specifies the server to record from or playback to; see

     -e  Record only (and all) events.  Should be used when
         creating input for

     -f script
         The pathname of the script to be recorded / played back.

     -v  Verbose mode.


     X Toolkit Error: Can't load DEC-XTRAP extension

     The XTrap X server extension has not been linked into the
     specified X server.

     Digital participated in the X Consortium's xtest working group which
     chose to evolve XTrap functionality into a new extension for X11/R6
     known as the RECORD extension (XTrap input synthesis functionality is
     currently covered by the XTEST extension).  It is strongly suggested
     that users of XTrap technology begin developing against RECORD/XTEST
     as it is the intention of the X Consortium to drive these two extensions
     in the standards process for providing the protocol capturing/synthesis
     functionality.  Some members of the xtest working group are actively
     researching migration issues between XTrap and RECORD.  If you'd like
     to contribute, please participate!  Contact your local X Consortium Rep
     for details on how to be added to the xtest mailing list.
