Original query:

>Could not create the tool.

Owch, ow, ow. I was trying to start the SunView version of dbxtool without
SunView support in OW3.0. I had upgraded the SunOS version and not reinstalled
the OpenWin (ie. X) version of dbxtool from SparcWorks.

I have already received 27 courteous responses to my query. The prize goes to
Bill Morrow ( who replied approximately simultaneously
with the appearance of my query on the net. Thanks to the 26 others, too
many to list here.
