Run OpenWindows (Solaris 6) program in Linux

I've developed programs in Solaris 6
(SunOS Release 5.6) using OpenWindows
V. 3.6. Would it be possible to run
my programs in Linux? Are there any
ways to do this without having to change
or rewrite my code using new window
graphic library? Any suggestion'd be
really appreciated. Thank you.

i am not a programmer but as far as i know, most apps developed under or for solaris can work under linux but i think you would have to rewrite it using a new window graphic library or whatever so its compatible.
