Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Describes how to write applications using the Motif toolkit from the Open Software Foundation (OSF), going into detail on every Motif widget class, with useful examples to help programmers develop their own code. Tips on programming in general are also included. The authors assume competence with C and familiarity with fundamental X Window System concepts. Chapters are marked by uncut tabs for easy location. The manual is updated for Motif 1.2, but still usable for Motif 1.1. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
