wanted: X-based prioritized task list maintenance application

Post by Leonard Sitong » Wed, 03 Apr 1991 08:21:17

I maintain a list of things to do (use requests for help, new
installations, problems, etc.) in a simple text file.  When I complete a
task, I delete the line in the file.  That doesn't give me any record of
what I've done.

I do use the Rand MH-based "trouble" queue facility, and that is an
improvement.  I suppose I could configure it for a private mail queue
and use an X interface to mail to manage it.

Does anyone have/use an X-based facility to manage their list of things
to do?  It would be nice if it would allow one to click a button to
"open" a problem report, assign a priority, and save the text when the
problem has been completed.

1. Displaying X-based applications?

What you would want to use is have the web server make RPC calls to the
machine you are on (you can obtain the IP address by using the
$ENV{REMOTE_HOST}) to execute programs on your local machine.  Granted this
will mean you will have to design a RPC server and install it on machines you
will be at.  But it will work.

I'm using this method to have anyone send data filled on on a web form to a
CAD server residing elsewhere on the network to parse the values and
automatically create and print files that contains the CAD drawings.
