Thanks for putting these together - I don't know enough about libXt to comment
on the code examples, but hopefully they'll help others.
Some notes for all these patches:
- please don't restore the old/obsolete CVS id tags that we have
previously removed, like this:
> +.\" $Xorg: XtAppNEv.man,v 1.3 2000/08/17 19:41:58 cpqbld Exp $
- The preferred subject line format would be:
[PATCH libXt] add simple example for XtAppNextEvent() man page
The bits in  are to provide information to the e-mail readers, letting
us know which module it's for, but are removed by git when applying the
patch, leaving the rest of the subject line as the single line summary of
the commit that appears in the changelog and release announcement, and
you don't need to preface all of those with libXt: when you are reading
the libXt announcements or changelogs.
Also, you shouldn't duplicate the subject line in the body of the commit
message - once is enough.
- In the examples:
> +#include <Xaw/Label.h>
> +/* gcc -I /usr/include/X11/ sample.c -o sample -lX11 -lXaw */
That should be #include <X11/Xaw/Label.h>, and then the "-I /usr/include/X11/"
is not needed. We never write code such that "-I /usr/include/X11/" is needed,
and shouldn't show examples that do either.
