NAME ^

X11::AtomConstants -- predefined X11 atoms

SYNOPSIS ^

 use X11::AtomConstants;
 $X->ChangeProperty($window,
                    X11::AtomConstants::WM_NAME,  # property
                    X11::AtomConstants::PIXMAP,   # type
                    8,                            # format
                    'Replace',
                    'My Window Title');

DESCRIPTION ^

This is the X11 pre-defined atoms as Perl constants. For example PIXMAP is 20, the PIXMAP atom.

    my $atom_id = X11::AtomConstants::PIXMAP;  # $atom_id is 20
    my $name = $X->GetAtomName($atom_id);      # $name is "PIXMAP"

The LAST_PREDEFINED constant is not an atom as such, but the last of the predefined values, which happens to be WM_TRANSIENT_FOR.

EXPORTS ^

Nothing is exported by default, but the constants can be requested in usual Exporter style,

    use X11::AtomConstants 'PIXMAP';
    blah (atom => PIXMAP);

The :all tag imports everything,

    use X11::AtomConstants ':all';
    blah (atom1 => POINT,
          atom2 => RECTANGLE);

Many atoms like STRING or WEIGHT have rather generic names and importing them may be undesirable. They can always be used with the full package name,

    use X11::AtomConstants;
    blah (atom => X11::AtomConstants::PIXMAP);
