bigFORTH is a native code Forth. It was originally developed on the Atari ST for the Motorola 68k processor and was recently ported to Intel 386, running under a DOS extender (GO32). bigFORTH is available for Linux and Windows 95/98/NT in pre-beta-test. This version is available under GPL. The most striking new feature is the graphical user interface MINOS and the form editor Theseus. MINOS is a graphic user interface (GUI) for X, written for bigFORTH-Linux and bigFORTH-Win32. It includes a rapid GUI developement editor (Theseus).
DLDialog offers the capability to draw a variety of widgets, in order to ease the human user in feeding input to the script. The program is designed to be particularly useful to implement system administration scripts. It includes a definition language similar to Tcl/Tk. It can display dialogs (with the same definition) using characters with the tvision/ncurses interface or using graphical windows with the QT/X11 interface.
OIO is a Web-based metadata/data management front-end which is built using Zope and works with Postgresql. No programming is required to build and manage Web-forms or to perform data mining/analysis on the collected data. It is in production at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center for clinical outcomes management and research data. Forms created with OIO and hosted on any OIO server can be downloaded as XML files. Once downloaded from the "Forms library" and imported into an OIO server, the necessary database tables are automatically recreated and the imported forms become immediately available to the users of that OIO server.
picoTK is a C GUI toolkit that requires only a minimum of memory resources. It is intended for embedded system use, especially for (but not limited to) the RTEMS realtime kernel. It is in no way comparable featurewise to a "real" full blown windows toolkit like Qt or nanoX; it rather provides simple drawing primitives like lines, filled rectangles, characters, and pixmaps. (But that is what many embedded applications might ask for.) It directly works on tailored "framebuffer" hardware. A Linux framebuffer emulator is supplied as part of the kit, making evaluation (and emulation!) possible without having a realtime OS and custom hardware.
