Speaking of which, if anyone wants the full set of netscape's motif add-on widgets I've got them, and I've even semi-autoconfed the source tree, which is to say the I've gotten the library itself to compile with autoconf but not all the other subdirectories, which are tests and whatnot. If there's an interest I could possibly be moved to autoconf the whole thing...
me me me ... me
on a more serious note: me
and no worries about autoconf, i don't care. i.e. no need to spend more time on that at least as far as i'm concerned. would really appreciate the package
Ha ha no seriously! They are the widgets that Ramiro Estrugo wrote to make the X Windows (yes I said Windows!) version of Netscape look just like the MS Windows (and Mac) version(s), the project was named Xfe (for X front end), it's all (of course) based on Motif. If you want to browse the source code it's still on mozilla's repository: http://lxr.mozilla.org/classic/source/cmd/xfe/XfeWidgets/ What I did, or, more to the point, tried to do with autoconf was make it compilable as a stand-alone project, since the Makefiles it comes with only work if you download the entire pre-Geko version of mozilla classic, and then run make from the top level. This code was all abandoned on October 8th 1998 with the switch to Geko and GTK. I just took a look at my autoconfed version and it's a bit of a mess, if you take a look at the above link and decide you really do want it I'll have to do a paper bag release (Linus speak for code that's so bad you have to hide your head under a paper bag so no one will know you're the one who released it).
