Yep, I know how that can be... *grin*

I could take a stab at linux questions if you want.  However, I would
think that most of the questions would be general to the X version of
geomview.  Perhaps I'm misunderstanding you...

Here's a problem that people will run into if they have compiled
evolver with geomview support on any little-endian machine.  Evolver
by default dumps binary OOGL files with the wrong byte order (it dumps
in native format, geomview expects most significant byte first).
Doing a "GV_BINARY off" command makes everything work, albiet slower.
Will any of the geomview modules be caught by this type of problem
when/if they are ported?
