Dear All,

In Linux, when we jump from text mode to graphical mode, which library in linux drawas the graphics, I mean, in which library drawline, drawrectangle, drawcircle, putpixel etc function has been written?

What is X?
Does it do this?
Do in puppy we have X?
Then what is the graphics library for puppy who draws on screen?

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

You should really write in beginners help, not programming, because you are FAR FROM THAT, as I opine. Puppy uses graphics like all Unix systems. Just read and consult Google. I don't want to be rude, but if you know nothing about UNIX/Linux, do not post in the programming section, where you are expected to know basics.

With kind regards, vovchik

Can anybody help me get these fundamental knowledge?

X is the GUI part, you should check out these two wiki pages as well

more detailed description of X
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_Window_System_core_protocol

Xlib - provides functions for interacting with an X server
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xlib

X Window System is a protocol, X.org is an implementation of it. It doesn't provide window tools and widgets, the window managers does - JWM often in Puppy.

Not sure what draws the console display.
