NAME
       xosd_create - Create a new XOSD object

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<xosd.h>

       xosd *xosd_create (int number_lines);

DESCRIPTION
       xosd_init creates a new xosd window that	can be used to display textual
       or numerical data on a X11 display in a unmanaged, shaped  window  that
       appears	to  be	transparent.  It  provides a similar effect to the on-
       screen display of many televisions and video recorders.

ARGUMENTS
       number_lines
	      The maximum number of lines of text that the window can display.
	      This value cannot	be changed.

RETURN VALUE
       On  success  a pointer to a new xosd object is returned,	otherwise NULL
       is returned.

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY
	      The environment variable that determines which X11  display  the
	      XOSD window appears.

       char *xosd_error
	      A	string to a text string	describing the error.

HISTORY
       The  xosd_create	function first appeared	in version 2.0 of the XOSD li-
       brary, replacing	the now	depricated xosd_init function.

AUTHORS
       The XOSD	library	was originally written by Andre	Renaud,	and is curren-
       ly  maintained  by Tim Wright. This document was	written	by Michael Ja-
       sonSmith.
