genera on unix workstations

An example of this was last year's announcement of a version of the
Document Examiner that runs on a Macintosh without Lisp. I wouldn't be
surprised if this year they announced something along those lines that
runs on Unix using X.
As it turns out, I gave in to a hack attack a few weeks ago and now have
a prototype version of the Document Examiner implemented using CLIM that
is verified to work under Genera, CLOE, Lucid, and Franz Allegro. It
includes the usual stuff: Show Documentation, Show Overview, Show
Candidates, bookmarks, selecting between several document sets, and so
forth. It uses the same style of documentation database that MacDocEx
uses, namely, a "preformatted" data set that is produced by this tool
that is an adjunct to Concordia.
No need to ask me what the exact plans are for this, because I don't
myself know. I personally hope that some use can be made of it.
