SAL Home PROGRAM X11 Libraries & Toolkits


The X Portable Interface Package (XPIP) is a freely distributed development tool which allows application programmers to quickly construct graphical user interfaces (GUIs) in an X-Windows environment. The interface takes the form of a series of user-definable widgets - buttons, sliders, dials, etc. - which applications employ for varying parameters, control flow, input/output, and other alterable processes. Although not nearly as comprehensive as several commercial and other freeware GUI packages such as xtoolkit and Tcl/Tk. XPIP provides a balance between ease of use and sophistication which make it appealing for the more casual programmer.
