Re: Xforms and FL [Was: Re: GPL vs. Motif]
Thanks for the reference :-)
I looked at FL. It looks pretty neat (is anyone packaging it for
Debian?), but it is not an XForms cloning project:
(Taken from http://www.cinenet.net/users/spitzak/fl/forms.html)
Although libFL was initially compatable with the GL Forms library
(version 0.3 or so), XForms has bloated severely and it's interface is
X specific. Therefore, XForms compatability is no longer a goal of
libFL. I did put in anything that was free, or that would add code
that would not be linked in if the feature is unused. I did not add
anything that would make the FL objects bigger, or that used X types
So I'm afraid this would mean porting LyX to FL rather than the other
way around, which probably involves so many changes that it should
be considered a forked version.
