Hello and sorry if this is not the proper place for this message.

I've written a small program to probe a connection to Xorg server
running on a particular $DISPLAY.  The source code looks a bit verbose,
but actually all it does is just a call of 'XOpenDisplay' and checking
the result.

As can be seen at
<http://stackoverflow.com/questions/637005/x-server-running>, when
people need to probe for avialable DISPLAY, they use general utilities
(like xset or xdpyinfo) which do many other things and produce unwanted
output, so I thought it might be handy to have a tool just to check a
