Each time this file is posted, I get lots of requests asking for it.
I don't understand this -- I have no other list.

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.

    You can also ask your Sun sales office for a copy of the Catalyst catalogue,
    which is a large printed book...

Commercial: OPEN LOOK CD
Contact: Darwin Open Systems, info@darwinsys.com
WWW: <URL:http://www.darwinsys.com/>
    Darwin Open Systems offers a CD-ROM with source for many of the XView
    applications listed in this FAQ, many compiled for SunOS and/or Linux.
    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    and the unpublished Vol3OL - OPEN LOOK User's Guide.

Commercial: XVT
Contact: XVT Systems (+1 303-443-4223 or Email "info@xvt.com")
    Lets you write portable code by providing a thin layer API which sits 
    on top of the native GUI toolkit.  Write your application in this 
    abstracted GUI and the toolkit translates into native GUI calls on 
    OPEN LOOK, Motif, Microsoft Windows, NT, Macintosh, OS/2, and 
    character terminals.  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.

Subject: PostScript and Graphics Viewers

    Type 1 support only in OpenWindows 3.0.1 under Solaris 2.1.
    Antialiasing support - with colour OpenWindows 3 try pageview -aa -dpi 150
    Note that pageview uses the X11/NeWS server to interpret the PostScript,
    and thus won't run on an X terminal or other non-OpenWindows server.
    It's *not* enough to be runing an OPEN LOOK UI [tm] window manager such
    as olwm.

    An OLIT-based terminal emulator.  I couldn't get the demo version to

    vt340 emulation, with double-height characters, colour, fonts, grahics
    and so forth.
    With the Union Flag (the British flag) as their logo I somehow expected
    an English address, perhaps in Bristol...

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.

Ftp: encyclo.jax.org
Notes:
    The libraries and utilities (olwm, cmdtool, etc) are available for
    anonymous ftp from encyclo.jax.org. I used gcc 2.1 to compile the
    sources. If there is enough interest, I can make the diffs
    available.

Notes:
    Let me stress that this is *not* fully tested, but seems to work
    pretty well.  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: HP9000/7XX series (XView 3.2)
Ftp: ftp.csc.liv.ac.uk pub/xview3.2
Notes:
   This is **NOT** the usual HP Archive at Liverpool; this port of XView3.2
   doesn't follow the usual conventions that apply to packages which are
   available on that archive.
   
   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.

Notes:
    There is still a problem with tty support for the RS/6000. For
    instance, the cmdtool will not work. Still, most everything else works.
    For those of you who have already installed my previous patch, I have
    put a separate patch for just the shared library problem. This file is
    contrib/xview3/Fixes/xview3_rs6k_XView_lib.patch.Z.

Subject: XView 2 Ports

In general, there is no point in using XView 2 if you have XView 3 available;
it's a good idea to look for an XView 3 port first.  Moving from XView 2 to
XView 3 is usually simply a matter of recompiling, unless you've done
"dirty tricks" or used undocumented calls.

    They made XView 2.0 libraries.  I haven't seen them advertising
    XView 3.0 libraries yet.
