The modules in this chapter are available only on those systems where the STDWIN library is available. STDWIN runs on Unix under X11 and on the Macintosh. See CWI report CS-R8817.
Warning: Using STDWIN is not recommended for new applications. It has never been ported to Microsoft Windows or Windows NT, and for X11 or the Macintosh it lacks important functionality -- in particular, it has no tools for the construction of dialogs. For most platforms, alternative, native solutions exist (though none are currently documented in this manual): Tkinter for Unix under X11, native Xt with Motif or Athena widgets for Unix under X11, Win32 for Windows and Windows NT, and a collection of native toolkit interfaces for the Macintosh.
