 XBtx.linux.tar --- Port of Xbtx for linux

I think this is of main interesst for german users only.
This is a port for linux. Included are the original XBtx.tar.Z and diffs.

Thomas Ziegler, 03/03/93

Here is a part of the original README:


XBtx is an X11 implementation of the CEPT videotext protocol terminal. It has
been extensively tested against the German Telekom's BTX version of the CEPT
videotext service.


XBtx supports

     o  color and black & white displays
     o  multiple server, multiple clients (though at any given time only one
        client can be served by a server)
     o  built-in script language
     o  accounting (connect time and user)

     o  session logging & off-line playback
     o  saving CEPT pages as ASCII or PBM (even if in black & white mode with
        the all the original color information)
     o  background mode (i.e. no X11 display is opened) for automated retrieval
     o  Perl interface
     o  modem configuration file


This software has not been validated by the ``Bundesamt fuer Zulassungen in
der Telekommunikation'' of the ``Deutsche Bundepost Telekom'' and thus
must not be used for accessing the BTX-Network of the Telekom in Germany.

Diese Software hat keine Zulassung durch das Bundesamt fuer Zulassungen in
der Telekommunikation der Deutschen Bundespost Telekom und darf daher nicht
am Netz der Deutschen Bundespost Telekom in Deutschland betrieben werden.

[This is a supplimentary posting to the earlier XBtx announcement.
Your attentive moderator didn't include information on where to get
the package. :) --mdw]

I forgot to tell you were you can find XBtx.linux.tar. It's in [] /pub/incoming

1. ANN: Visual Dependency Analysis Tool Ported To UNIX

Headway Software is pleased to announce that its popular Windows
product has been ported to Solaris and Linux.  You are invited to
download and try the beta product by emailing

Headway reView presents dependencies (as directed graphs).  It shows
all dependencies at all levels and between levels.  Since low-level
dependencies (e.g. method to method) are rolled-up to higher levels
(e.g. package to package), it is ideal for understanding the
structure of your code from the highest to most detailed level.  You
can "chase" dependencies through your application and drill-down to
the level of detail you want (e.g. "which method in this class uses
something in that package?").  Numerous intelligent layouts
automatically arrange your graphs, helping you to see inherent
structure and avoiding time-consuming manual layout.

Source code and JavaDoc views "follow" as you browse your
application.  Advanced find and "tagging" capabilities help you to
locate and remember items of interest.  You can even analyse the
effect of reorganizing your codebase by dragging and dropping items
(e.g. classes between packages, methods between classes) and
observing the effect on the higher level dependencies - ideal for
streamlining a degraded codebase.

Finally, Headway reView parses byte code (*.class or *.jar), so it
is extremely fast and can be used on very large projects.
