The XView Toolkit

XView (X Window-System-based Visual/Integrated Environment for Workstations) is a user-interface toolkit to support interactive, graphics-based applications running under the X Window System. XView provides a set of pre-built, user-interface objects such as canvases, scrollbars, menus, and control panels. The appearance and functionality of these objects follow the OPEN LOOK Graphical User Interface (GUI) specification. XView features an object-oriented style Application Programmer's Interface (API) that is straightforward and easy to learn.

            I have added a project called Cobra Command Tool. It is a terminal emulator and uses the XView toolkit. I don't have support for a scroll mouse today. Can I get scroll mouse support by using the latest XView libraries?
