Yes, and to write plugins etc - except that some plugin-authors are probably not aware of that fact. Gimp maintains a Procedural DataBase with various functions. Libgimp has some functions to access this Databasea (search, execute) plus a lot of wrappers around this functions. Basically for a language binding you have to use these pdb-access functions to map the pdb functions into the target language. http://developer.gimp.org/api/1.3/libgimp/libgimp-gimpproceduraldb.html > > > Where can I learn more about making such bindings? > > > > Look at the existing bindings and the libgimp documentation. > > The reason why I ask is that I can't find the documentation. > Could you plese tell me where the documentation is? The libgimp documentation gets build when you compile the Gimp from CVS - not sure about the tarballs.

I think gimp-displays-reconnect is what you are looking for.
