Image Displays

This section describes the setup of the image displays used by MIDAS and the functionality provided by MIDAS to interact with these displays. For a description of the conceptual model for an image display device see the definition document for the IDI-routines.
Via the IDI-interfaces MIDAS supports peripheral display devices like e.g. the venerable DeAnza or Ramtek devices and XWindow displays. Since the peripheral display devices are more or less extinct by now, we describe here only the way how MIDAS uses an XWindow display.
