Okay, I'll sum up the information I got.
My original question was, what and where the tool is to view the AnswerBook
under pure X11, not OpenWindows.
I got several answers and several hints to several solutions ;o)
1) ab - published in comp.sources.misc or some such group. It requires the
xview toolkit. Haven't tried it yet for we don't seem to have the
libraries at hand and I'm a little short of time right now. I'll do it
sometime in the future. Credits to Derrick J. Brashear
<email@example.com> for that. btw, it's *NOT* on ftp.x.org in /contrib.
It's available at ftp.informatik.uni-freiburg.de:/soft/X/ab.tar.gz
2) xdocviewer - needs perl >= 4.0.19 and ghostscript >= 1.3 or gspreview >= 2.1.
Works only on Solaris 2., that is, only on Solaris with the X11/NeWS
server, *not* with the Display PostScript server that Sun is shipping with
release 2.3. I tried it but to no avail. Maybe if I find the time to hack
Available at ftp.informatik.uni-freiburg.de:/soft/X/xdocviewer-2.0.1.shar
Hope this helps.
