 Running linux poplog with Lesstif (now works)

[To reply replace "Aaron.Sloman.XX" with "A.Sloman"]

I previously reported on comp.lang.pop that attempts to link poplog so
that the X facilities worked with Lesstif when Motif was not available
had not worked.

Thanks to help from Julian Clinton I have now fixed this. The details
are described in

If you already have linux poplog and lessstif you can install three
modified files then relink for motif. It should then work. The files are

        Install those two in

        Install this in

You can the relink poplog to use motif or lesstif with the following
command (as described in HELP NEWPOP):

    $popsrc/newpop -link -x=-xm -xpw

It will relink, then rebuild the standard saved images, indexes to
documentation files, etc.

Alternatively you can fetch the complex linux Poplog tar file for linux
with motif or lesstif from

Then unpack and install.

Information about other facilities available and othere versions of
poplog is in

If anyone tries the new version with lesstif, please post problems
(or successes!) to comp.lang.pop

We have found that trying to set the minimum heap size on Linux poplog,
using popminmemlim causes an error. Simply use popmemlim, and give
a high value (e.g. 1024) to popgcratio, to force the heap to expand
quickly when garbage collections occur. See REF popgcratio.
