I don't understand this -- I have no other list. Lee Subject: Where to look for more applications Commercial: Catalyst Contact: Sun WWW: <URL:http://www.sun.com/> You will find a very large list of commercial applications for the Solaris operating system by navigating to the Catalyst index.

The CD also contains the XView 3.2 source, all of X11R6pl11, and three O'Reilly textbooks: Vol7A - XView Programming, Vol7B - XView Reference, and the unpublished Vol3OL - OPEN LOOK User's Guide. Subject: Applications: Application Builders Commercial: DevGuide 3.0 Contact: SunSoft lets you use Drag and Drop to create an OPEN LOOK application with XView, OLIT, TNT. Very easy to use.

Includes GUI builder for XVT C toolkit or XVT C++ class library. XVT is the base document for the emerging IEEE 1201.1 Uniform (GUI) API standard. Note: It's been said on the net that XVT provides a common subset of the various systems, with limited functionality, but I don't know how limited it is -- the best answer is probably to look and see if it meets your needs.

UIT Subject: OpenWindows 3 Ports Sun: SPARC, SunOS 4.1 Sun: SPARC, Solaris 2 (actually 3.0.1?) others: none so far... There are said (by Sun) to be two or three ports of OpenWindows either available now or in progress. Contact Anthony Flynn at Open Vistas International (anthony@ovi.com) for more information. (originally they said 35, but perhaps they meant 3.5) OpenWindows source is available - commercially, it costs about $5,000 for the server, including TypeScaler and the toolkits; deskset (filemgr etc) is another $25,000; ToolTalk is $40,000 or so. Subject: XView 3 Ports What: XView 3 System: Apple A/UX Porter: lmj@uncompaghre.jax.org (Lou Jones) Ftp: encyclo.jax.org Notes: The libraries and utilities (olwm, cmdtool, etc) are available for anonymous ftp from encyclo.jax.org.

Please let me know about any problems you find. Problems I already know about: Large buttons under *any* non-Sun X server (non-xnews; i.e. any standard MIT X11R[45] server) have the bottom of the button chopped off. We're working on this one. :-) XView 3 is also available on the DEC Freeware CD, from DECUS. [actually this seems *not* to be Dave Scott's port; please accept my apologies for listing this incorrectly. A correct entry will appear as soon as I get the necessary information. -- Lee] System: HP 720 Porter: (?) Ftp: tesla.ucd.ie in /pub Notes: Includes HP 720 build, HP XView patch file, Xvgr.

This port uses modified copies of the files /usr/include/X11R5/X11/Xlib.h and /usr/include/X11R5/X11/Xlibint.h The files as supplied by HP are not touched but it is possible that a new version of the HP X server might break the port. Some contributed clients are also included.

Moving from XView 2 to XView 3 is usually simply a matter of recompiling, unless you've done "dirty tricks" or used undocumented calls.
