ArgumentsdisplaySpecifies the connection to the X server. event_maskSpecifies
the mask of events to redirect. datatype XEVIE_MODIFIED or XEVIE_UNMODIFIED
- whether the Xevie client has changed or synthesised this event.  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
