Simple Database Library
Ulric's Router Construction Kit
This is not a magic library which will beautify all your apps instantly.
But with some .Xdefaults fiddling you can make Athena applications look,
and sometimes behave, much better.
You can make Athena based applications use it by the following ways:
Whether it can be used as a drop-in replacement or not depends on the
application. If it contains widgets that are subclassed from Xaw widgets,
it probably won't work and relinking will be necessary - that is the case
for any Xaw replacement library.
Previous versions of Siag Office,
for example, contained a Handle widget that
was subclassed from a Label widget, which meant that widget libraries were
not interchangeable. That dependency has since been removed.
Why another Xaw?
The default Athena library is not very pretty and has some rather
unintuitive GUI "features". For example you can never tell if that little
square with something written in it is meant to be a command button, a
checkbox, a radiobutton, a text entry or a label. The 3D replacement (Xaw3d)
makes some widgets prettier, but the ambiguity and some other problems are

but now, nearly all other widgets (text, menubutton...) have a neat, clean and
elegant-looking N*XTSTEP style. Plus it adds new user configurable resources,
so that you can make radiobuttons, checkbuttons and menubuttons have
