Thanks to many friends on the net. Now, I understand that I can freely
distribute VXP. You can get a copy from the ftp site in my school at:    under /pub/VXP
or go to VXP web page under URL:

Please send me a email if you install the VXP and want to be beta testor.
I welcome any suggestions, bug reports and comments.

  materials, and other materials related to such distribution.


Following is the copy of previous post of VXP
I am a graduate student of Computer Science Department at Sam Houston State
University. I has been working on a project called VXP -- Visual X windows
Programming Interface, which is a GUI builder for Motif widget sets.

VXP provides an integrated application development environment for X
windows programmer. Its main features are;
 o design application's user interface visually and interactively;
 o generate the C source code automatically;
 o compile and test the application within VXP.

There is a web page for this project, the URL is:

This page includes links to:

 o Introduction of VXP
 o System Overview
 o User and Installation Manual
 o Tutorial
 o FAQ
 o FTP info

The ftp site  for VXP is:    under /pub/VXP

I would like to distribute the beta version of this system for evaluation and
test. But unfortunately, OSF/Motif is not a free package, I have to buy a
$15,000 Full Distribution Licence from OSF in order to distribute it even
for free. So, I cannot put the system on the FTP site now. I don't understand
those policies very well, so if anyone knows how I can get around this,
please let me know.

I am now working on get a guest account for people to try it for the time
being. I will post latest news on this group later. And you can check the
web page for latest progress.

1. X11R4 Motif GUI builders, screen melt & other fun games

Recently (?) I saw an article listing various GUI builders that are available
for X11R4 with Motif on Sun Sparcs.  Since I have not saved the article
I hope some kind soul will ( repost || send_me ) that article.

While I have your attention I would also appreciate if you could share
any experience you may have had with any X11R4/Motif(1.0.3 - 1.1) GUI
builders and how well they work with UIL.

Now for some fun & games...
Where are the ftp sites for 'melt' and those little bugs that eat up
the screen (or any other progs like that)? ( X11R4 && Sunview )

Thanks for the help!
