If you're on an Irix 6 Iris, "-lfm_s" and "-lgl_s" no longer work, but you can still get the same effect (I think) with "-lfm -lgl", just omitting the "_s" suffixes. You might be better off, though, avoiding the SGI "forms" library and trying "XForms" instead. It was created by T.C. Zhao and the original creator of the SGI FORMS library, Mark Overmars. It has several advantages: - it works on a fair variety of non-SGI machines (Sun, HP, Linux, etc.) - it works well over the net (remote display works very badly with the SGI GL FORMS library) - there are still people working on it, so bugs might get fixed. - it's nearly compatible with FORMS, so most stuff looks familiar. The FORMS-based modules that come with Geomview now all use XForms rather than plain FORMS. If interested, you can get XForms from http://bragg.phys.uwm.edu/xforms Stuart Levy, Geometry Center
