 DescriptionX Event Interception Extension (XEvIE)  is designed for users
who need to intercept all the Keyboard and Mouse events. Programs can determine
which events should be forwarded to other clients and modify the events
if necessary.  
Functions XevieQueryVersion The XevieQueryVersion function
returns the major and minor protocol version  numbers supported by the
server. XevieQueryVersion returns True if success, otherwise, it returns
False.  XevieStart The XevieStart function requests that the X server enable
the XEvIE extension. Once XEvIE is successfully enabled, all the XevieSelectInput
specified events  will be sent to the client which has enabled XEvIE. If
XKB or AccessX is enabled, the events that are sent to the XEvIE clients
are XKB/AccessX processed (filtered) ones.  XevieSendEvent Events are sent
back to the X server through XevieSendEvent.  XevieEnd The XevieEnd function
requests that the X server disables the XEvIE extension. Once XEvIE is disabled
successfully, the X server stops sending events to the XEvIE client.  XevieSelectInput
The XevieSelectInput function requests that the X server reports the keyboard
 and pointer events associated with the specified event mask. By default,
X will report KeyPress, KeyRelease, ButtonPress, ButtonRelease and MotionNotify
events.  RestrictionsXevie will remain upward compatible after the current
1.0 release. AuthorsDerek Wang and Stuart Kreitman, Sun Microsystems, Inc.
