Lazy functional programs typically have very primitive user interfaces. Poor interfaces with the outside world make it difficult to access machine resources like colour displays and mice. This paper presents a technique for using X11 and an associated toolkit XView [1] from the lazy functional language Miranda.1 This has been done by building an interpreter for a subset of X11/XView.
