: For the X window system, framemaker is somewhat the best, but on the
: expensive side. The problem is linux availability. frame SCO should run on
: linux in the SCO emulation mode with a version not calling the license
: manager (I have a beta v3 version which runs perfectly, but current Frame
: 4 versions hang when calling the license manager from reports I had from
: US users). try to contact Framemaker, myself I am stuck, as Frame Europe
: doesnt sell SCO versions anymore :-(
: If you are French speaking, Opera is making available its great "xgrif"
: wordprocessor for free on linux only (other platforms/langages will be at
: a price). see http://hatutu.imag.fr/grif/
: xgrif is a sophisticated commercial word processor with heavy bases in
: advanced research concepts
I tried to doanload a copy of the binary for xgrif to no avail. The
NetScape v2.0 that I used gave me an FTP error (Could not login to FTP
server). has anybody tried this?
