My original query:

>Setup: Sun Sparc 1,1+,2,IPC,Classic; at least 16MB RAM; at least 200MB
> local hard disk space; networked; Solaris 2.3 fully installed on
> one test machine
>Question: Is there any support for pre-compiled SunView apps (no source

The concensus is that Solaris 2.3 has no SunView support. Sorry, folks...
