As was mentioned, the O'Reilly Xlib Reference Manual and Xlib 
Programming manual are excellent. However, it depends on what you want 
to build. If you want widgets, such as buttons and sliders, unless you 
want to really get into that as a learning experience, you should use a 
toolkit. Xt has extremely useful features but rather primitive widgets. 
OpenMotif is excellent. No matter what you use there will probably be 
times when a toolkit or GUI builder does not do what you need and you 
will have to fall back on Xlib.
