The XClearArea function paints a rectangular area in
the specified window according to the specified dimensions with the window's
background pixel or pixmap. The subwindow-mode effectively is ClipByChildren.
If width is zero, it is replaced with the current width of the window
minus x. If height is zero, it is replaced with the current height of the
window minus y. If the window has a defined background tile, the rectangle
clipped by any children is filled with this tile. If the window has background
None, the contents of the window are not changed. In either case, if
exposures is True, one or more Expose events are generated for regions
of the rectangle that are either visible or are being retained in a backing
store. If you specify a window whose class is InputOnly, a BadMatch
XClearArea can generate BadMatch, BadValue, and BadWindow
The XClearWindow function clears the entire area in the specified
window and is equivalent to XClearArea (display, w, 0, 0, 0, 0, False).
If the window has a defined background tile, the rectangle is tiled with
a plane-mask of all ones and GXcopy function. If the window has background
None, the contents of the window are not changed. If you specify a
window whose class is InputOnly, a BadMatch error results.

An InputOnly window is used as a Drawable.
