Linuxconf GUI API
Linuxconf has a client/server protocol for its GUI toolkit.
core Linuxconf talks with a small GUI server using a pair of pipes.
The protocol between the two is simple (and ASCII).
The reference version of the GUI server is written using the wxXt toolkit.
There are other version of the server written in Java, Gtk and Newt(
text mode front-end). The Java version is mostly on the back burner, but
the other should be complete soon. This allows Linuxconf to closely
fit any desktop environnement, even on other OSs than linux.
