CLIM on a UX displaying through Motif

YY, which I presented at SLUG-90, is my approach for applications
which need the run time co-operation of Genera and X-window.

Key idea of YYonX for Symbolics is to keep Lisp software of Symbolics
(do not migrate sources to UN*X machines) and use UN*X machines
"No Migration but Co-existence" means such things.
YYonX for Symbolics is under development. It's first version in alpha status is
available free through anonymous FTP from ftp.csrl.aoyama.ac.jp
(22.214.171.124) with 'cd YY'.

Since Nihon Symbolics is one of the supporting members of our research
and ILA and us are keeping a technical communication,
CLIM and YY can have a integrated or a uniform external specification
and we are discussing to have it in a near future, I believe.
We like to welcome everyone.
