isn't there a Widget builder for Motif/X yet? Something like OCX (I believe on
Windows95).

Answer: David B. Lewis (dbl%craft@uunet.uu.net) writes:

None that I know of. There are similar widgets available in Motif 2.0.  There
are similar widgets available in the ICS EnhancementPak.

[For the second part of the question...] Because it's very hard to do. I don't
know what OCX is, but I can't imagine that the technology is so much better
than that used in Xt that it's possible to write something to generate real
code. It's trivial, of course, to generate the framework for a widget given
only its name, superclass, and resources; but everything else is real code.
