Geomview for NeXT question
Beth, I believe we have found the bug you reported which involved the NeXT version of Geomview hanging when you try to open an object. This is definitely one of the strangest bugs I have ever seen: it turns out to be related to what directory Geomview.app is in. If there is a 'G' (capital letter G) in the pathname of your Geomview.app directory *before* the 'G' in "Geomview.app", then Geomview hangs when you try to open an object. So, for example, if you put Geomview.app in a directory called "Geomview", so that its absolute pathname is something like /home/yourlogin/Geomview/Geomview.app ^ then the problem appears. If, however, you rename the directory to something like /home/yourlogin/geomview/Geomview.app ^ then everything works fine. Could you check the pathname of your Geomview.app and see if this is the case? If so, you can fix it for now by just renaming the directory or putting Geomview.app in some other directory. If this trick doesn't work for you, please let us know. The problem will be fixed in the next release, which is due to come out any day now. -- Mark Phillips Geometry Center
