That's true, and while searching through gtk mailing list archives I
found numerous references to the absence of good gdk documentation.

However, for my current requirement, image processing (elective in
BE), I must use gdk as gtk does not provide enough control over
images and pixmaps, allowing only inclusion of the same in containers.

What I am looking for is some simple code to understand how to put gdk
drawables, once they are prepared, into gtk containers.

I found a book, GTK+ / GNOME Application Development at 
that has a chapter on gdk, and although it does not have much code it
is better than the manual at the gtk website.
