Portable CLX

Yesterday Daniel Barlow alluded to the new mailing list he started with Gary Byers, portable-clx-devel.

My observation is that there are several different more-or-less actively maintained CLX ports and patches to ports around the net. You can see the mess of links on the CLiki CLX page, and that's just the free ones: who knows what Franz or Xanalys or Scieneer have in their internal systems?

The mailing list is an attempt to get the various CLX implementors and maintainers together, so everyone can more easily benefit from patches like the one to handle ssh-tunneled X connections.

Who wrote CLX originally?

A veritable host of 1980s-era Lisp hackers in different places, but if the copyright messages are accurate, mostly TI, MIT, CMU, Symbolics and Franz

If you want to poke around the sources yourself, try http://cvs.telent.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/clx/
