Re: [Closed REQ 5035]: where is library & header files?
Yes, you do need to build the source distribution to create libraries for constructing your own external modules. It's true that compiling the source distribution doesn't produce a tree like that from the binary distribution, with all pieces living under Geomview.app. We ship binaries that way since it works best with the NeXT Installer program. However, after you "make install", /LocalApps/Geomview.app should still be able to find its associated programs and data even though they don't live under its .app directory. The file controlling this is Geomview.app/CONFIG.gv, which is created during "make install". It knows the path name of the Geomview tree -- the pathname you specified by setting GEOMROOT in makefiles/mk.site.default -- and finds everything under that directory. Another option: you could just continue to use the Geomview binary distribution files, and only take the libraries and include-files from the source distribution, possibly by using -L and -I options when compiling your external modules. Caveat: the user-interface examples from the Geomview manual use the FORMS library, which exists for Irises but not Nexts. So you're on your own, except for using the existing NeXT external-modules as examples. Does that help? Stuart
