SAL Home PROGRAM X11 Libraries & Toolkits


Xm++ is a user interface framework for the C++ language. It is designed to be a simple and intuitive programming interface to access the functionality of commonly used GUI toolkit objects.

Xm++ has been developed independendly from Motif++ or other commercial/free widget wrapper libraries, and it's general approach is quite different. While other libraries are designed strictly after Motif's widget hierarchy, Xm++ was specified to provide a simple programming interface. Many ideas for the Xm++ architecture came from Digitalk's Smalltalk version, which provides an easy to use framework for Windows/PM/Mac applications.
