I urgently need help from somebody here who's familiar with Xlib programming... The recent upgrade to XF4 seems to have introduced a slightly modified API that causes aXe (an X editor that I'm maintaining) to no longer build. And leaving the package as-is is not an option, because there are serious malfunctions when aXe is run under the 4.0.1 X libs (one not-so-funny malfunction being that in the File Load/Save window input field, everything the user types comes out backwards; making it practically unusable). The compile problem involves Xaw's AsciiSinkPart structure: apparently, the 3.3.6 Xaw has a field called insertCursorOn which is missing in the 4.0.1 Xaw. This mysterious missing struct member is passed (by the aXe code) as the second parameter to XGetGeometry, XCopyPlane, and maybe a few other places. What I need to know is, what *does* this parameter do, and how can I fix it so that it'll work with the new Xaw? FYI, contacting the upstream author isn't an option either, since he has stopped working on aXe a long time ago, and has no intentions of continuing to maintain it. Plus, this *is* my favorite X editor, and I'm not going to give up on it so easily! :-) Thanks in advance for any pointers... RTFM responses are OK as long as you tell me where the FM is :-) T -- MASM = Mana Ada Sistem, Man!
