X Windows Development Tools - libraries..

Post by Jim Norto » Wed, 25 Nov 1998 04:00:00

Hello all,

I am somewhat confused on which "Widget" set Linux has support for.  I
like to write some X-Windows apps and need to buy a book.  I guess I
need to
know what toolkit I should be using for Linux before I look for a book.

I am aware of the following:

XView, Motif, Athena Widgets, OpenLook..  Which libraries, header files
can I get
support for under Linux that will have the best portability to other

I currently have Slackware 3.2 installed.  Can somebody tell me what X
libraries and headers I have available to me?

I hope this makes sense...

Can someone explain this to me?  I don't know much about compiler
implementation, and would like to know why templates are so troublesome.
As a developer, I find them very useful.
