LispView: A GUI that doesn't use CLX.
LispView is a GUI written at Sun that does not use CLX. Instead it
converts Xlib.h directly into Lucid foreign function calls. It is
intended to be fast and tight. LispView includes a general-purpose 2D
grapher library, an interface to Sun's XGL 2.0 3D graphics library,
and a generic scrollable list package.
In addition to the usual X-Windows output functions for windows,
LispView supports a sophisticated input model for handling events.
LispView can also translate an interface developed with the OpenWindows(TM)
Developers' Guide (Devguide) Interface Builder.
The manual is in the doc/ subdirectory in PostScript (ps.tar.gz)
or FrameMaker (frame.tar.gz) formats.
The source code is in source.tar.gz and includes the generic source
interface to the XView(TM) 2.0 libraries. The XView 2.0 libraries
(with a patched libolgx) are in xview-libs.tar.gz. A LispView module
built from the sources can be found in lispview-user.tar.gz. Demos,
translators to/from Devguide, and some test files can be found in
guide-etc.tar.gz. Utilities are in util.tar.gz.
