Builder Xcessory PRO for Linux is the industry's most advanced graphical user interface builder for Motif. BX PRO provides a comprehensive visual reuse environment that speeds development of mission-critical applications. BX PRO integrates three best-of-breed tools to create an unparalleled application development suite.
BX/XIK automates the integration of Sitraka's (formerly KL Group) Motif based XRT widgets into Builder Xcessory PRO. After installing the XRT Integration Kit, the XRT widgets will appear on the BX PRO palette and can be "dragged-and-dropped" to create a sophisticated Motif-based user interface.
The Tecla library provides programs with interactive command line editing facilities, similar to those of the Unix tcsh shell. It supports recall and editing of previously entered command lines, TAB completion of file names and application specific tokens, and in-line wild-card expansion of filenames. The optionally reentrant modules which perform TAB completion and wild-card expansion are also available separately for general use. The library is smaller, more modular, makes more efficient use of the heap, and has a less restrictive license than GNU readline.
SANE stands for "Scanner Access Now Easy" and is an application programming interface (API) that provides standardized access to any raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, handheld scanner, video and still cameras, framegrabbers, etc.). The SANE standard is public domain and its discussion and development are open to everybody. The source code is written for UNIX (including Linux) and is available under the GPL, but commercial applications and backends are welcome. The package contains the libraries, net support, and scanimage. The X frontends xscanimage and xcam can be found in sane-frontends.
Setedit is a text editor specially designed for programmers. It has a nice interface with mouse support, menus and windows (text mode). The editor is a very good choice for people with DOS background, especially people accustomed to Worstar and Borland editors. The editor has overlapped windows so you can see more than one file at the same time, configurable syntax highlighting, macros, rectangular selection, block indentation, as well as customizable keyboard shortcuts and menus.
Squeak is an OpenSource and super-portable implementation of a multi-media capable Smalltalk-80 based object-oriented programming environment. It is written entirely in Smalltalk and has a high-performance VM, created by compiling the Smalltalk VM code into efficient and portable C code. It now uses the Self language's Morphic User Interface but still provides the original MVC GUI as well.
DirectFB is a thin library that provides developers with hardware graphics acceleration, input device handling and abstraction, an integrated windowing system with support for translucent windows and multiple display layers on top of the Linux framebuffer device. It is a complete hardware abstraction layer with software fallbacks for every graphics operation that is not supported by the underlying hardware.
ViewKlass is a C++ framework for developing applications that use the LessTif or OSF/Motif(tm) user interface toolkits. In particular it provides classes that support the creation of reusable components. It also provides classes that encapsulate some of the more difficult and tedious aspects of Motif development. These include classes to handle the creation of windows, dialogs, and menus. ViewKlass is an open source implementation of SGI's ViewKit(tm), and should eventually become source code compatible with a large subset of of that API.
CLIP is a Clipper/XBase compatible compiler with initial support other xBase dialects. It features support for international languages and character sets. It also features OOP, a multiplatform GUI based on GTK/GTKextra, all SIX/Comix features (including hypertext indexing), SQL and ODBC drivers, a C-API for third-party developers, a few wrappers for popular libraries (such as BZIP, GZIP, GD, Crypto, and Fcgi), a multitasking client and application server based on TCP/IP sockets, object data base utilities, and a functions library.
