Anyone familiar with an ancient X11 lib called InterViews?


Is anyone familiar with an ancient X11 lib called InterViews?

I found a program that I would like to use, but it requires InterViews. I found InterViews on Stanford's FTP site, but it uses IMake which wouldn't work for me. Even if IMake worked, I suspect that the code is old enough that it wouldn't compile with a recent compiler and probably isn't completely compatible with modern X11.

So, does anyone know of patches for it, or a newer lib that is similar enough to make porting easy?

Can you tell us the name of the program? Considering that it uses such an old library, my first guess is that the program is probably outdated, as well. However, there may be a newer version, possibly under a different name.

Cheers

The program I want to use is "STEP Class Library", http://www.mel.nist.gov/msid/scl/SCL.htm

Good luck finding something something with that functionality that is newer and free
