Running CLIM on Garnet's Motif widgets
Date: Fri, 14 Feb 1992 17:35 EST
CLIM 2.0 will reportedly simplify the interface between CLIM and
platform-dependent toolkits such as Motif's. The Garnet software
available from CMU includes (among many other things) a Motif widget set
written in Common Lisp on top of CLX. Has anyone, user or vendor,
considered implementing a Motif back end for CLIM 2.0 using Garnet?
Not to my knowledge. I would guess that it is unlikely that any vendor
will do this, since it is hard to justify economically.
My own personal interest is in writing a CLIM program on a Symbolics
Lisp Machine that projects--onto a dumb X graphics server, such as an X
terminal--a user interface with a Motif look and feel. (Symbolics CLIM
currently projects a Symbolics Genera look and feel, using CLX
directly.) Symbolics Genera already includes CLX, and I am presuming
that porting Garnet to Symbolics would not be too difficult. Thus, what
I would need is a connection between CLIM and Garnet.
