The XcRichText fills the need for a formatted text display widget in the Motif toolkit. It interprets RTF data and formats and displays it using X fonts, colors, lines, and pixmaps.
Apparently, Philippe-Andre Prindeville firstname.lastname@example.org has released some enhancements. See: Philippe's XcRichText release directory.
NOTE: It has been some time since I worked with this code. I had several reports of folks who successfully used this software, and there are no known defects, but I won't make any guarantees either!
My most active beta tester was Philippe-Andre Prindeville <email@example.com>. He was using it to display some sort of international dictionary. When I last contacted him, he was doing some optimizations on fonts and scrolling. I think he released a patch.
In order to build applications using the XcRichText widget, you will need:
This material is derived from the RTF Tools by Paul DuBois firstname.lastname@example.org
Release 1.5 has been built and tested on:
with Motif 1.1
The source distribtion is available from a number of FTP archives, for example, on gatekeeper.dec.com in /.b/X11-contrib: XcRichText-1.5.tar.Z Sep 27 1992.
You can get list of copies of the distribution from the Archie database via the ArchiePlex service.
To verify the distribution: it is 127957 bytes; the checksum (as
per the SunOS sum command) is
33571 125, and
I have signed it with a pgp 2.6 digital signature:
-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE----- Version: 2.6.2 iQBVAwUALyb+lAMMWbnGdYN5AQGvvQH+PWdUB2cUgExprSWodJgbPXHQQ82bCPkX TQRGJ2exZqOGBDwEcsmzWEXY4pi1wnQ369T53Mnz8Th+tlhZMNpIEQ== =ze7U -----END PGP MESSAGE-----
You'll need my key to check the signature of course.
