1. Do I have to modify my program to use Xmsgtrace?

No. Xmsgtrace doesn't require any changes to the client program.

2. Is Xmsgtrace complicated to use?

No. Suppose you want to record the X protocol generated by an X program. Simply start Xmsgtrace and tell it to record messages by pressing the "Run" button. By default, Xmsgtrace records the X protocol of all future X programs that are run after the "Run" button is pressed. Then run your client program. That's it! Xmsgtrace will automatically record the protocol communication and save it in a text file. Xmsgtrace has menus so that you can filter out unwanted protocol messages.
