The inputbox program for XWindows
Several caveats apply to this MathLink program for XWindows. Because
I'm using X in a non-standard way (I don't have a single event loop
which terminates by the program stopping itself) I've run into a lot
of bugs in the X libraries which ordinarily no-one sees - even if
you explicitly destroy all the pieces of the application there are
bugs that leave resources hanging around which make the program
fall over when it tries to run repeatedly.
This code doesn't work with the X11 release 4 libraries. It should
work with X11R5, and R6 too though I haven't tried it. The code
uses the Athena widget set.
The directory source contains the C code, a MathLink template file
and a sample command line - you need the special MathLink compile
command script "mcc".
The directory compiled contains a working executable for SG Irix (it was
compiled on Irix 4.0.5F).
