CLIM stream problem

   From: "Steven L. Smith" <>

    I'm running CLIM 2.0 under Genera 8.3. I created an application frame with
   a frame command that basically outputs an postscript file to on my Unix
   workstation (via NFS) and then executes a remote command to print the file
   (this is where the problem comes in).

    The remote print command 
    prompts the user for a password before executing the command. However,
   if the command is executed from within the application frame, I get the
   error message stated below.

    1) Is there a way to suppress this prompting of the password?

I don't know the answer to this.

    2) If not, is there a way to direct the prompting to appear within
       the command pane of my application frame? Note that I tried reassigning
       *TERMINAL-IO* and *STANDARD-INPUT* but to no avail.

Not to my knowledge.  This is one of the areas that reveals that CLIM
is not as well integrated wioth the rest of Genera as you would like.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

   Thanks for any help.
