    X11, Open Look and Motif are window and graphical user interface technologies that are now becoming available from vendors. Networked window systems such as X and NeWS allow the user to run their application on one machine and have a multi-window, graphical user interface to that application from their desktop. The new technology of networked window systems is accompanied by second generation grap... View full abstract»

    Open Dialogue is a user interface management system (UIMS) that allows the user to create interfaces to applications. Open Dialogue is written in the object-oriented C++ programming language and supports applications written in C, C++, Pascal, FORTRAN, and Ada. It is layered on X-windows and uses data structures, called objects, to contain the information related to an interface. The data fields i... View full abstract»

    In all its versions and iterations, the Unix operating system has had one consistent drawback: its character-based user interface. The Open Software Foundation (OSF) took up the challenge of developing a vendor neutral graphical interface for UNIX. OSF'S first offering, the Motif graphical user interface, is made up of a window manager, which gives the user a standard environment for manipulating ... View full abstract»

    HyperNeWS is a powerful tool for designing user interfaces, developed at the Turing Institute. It runs on Sun3 and Sun4 workstations, using either the X11/NeWS server, or NeWS server. It is somewhat like the Macintosh HyperCard system in its screen organisation, with windows (or stacks) composed of backgrounds and cards. Each background/card/stack can contain a variety of objects, such as buttons,... View full abstract»

    UIMSs are software components designed to handle the dialogue between user and application, enforcing a separation of application functionality from interface presentation and behaviour, by interpreting user input, providing feedback, controlling the execution of application actions and (ideally) handling application-generated output. Usually, a specification language is available for specifying t... View full abstract»

    GRADIENT is a research project within the ESPRIT programme. The project aims to prove design principles, for the development of advanced interface systems for process control. The primary result is a graphical dialogue environment in which knowledge-based systems and dialogue design combine to provide advanced information processing for complex process control domains. From its inception, the run-... View full abstract»
