Notes on using and recompiling xforms-0.88 on OS/2
--------------------------------------------------
Holger.Veit@gmd.de 14 Dec 97

1. XForms is only supported for XFree86/OS2 3.2 or later, not for
   PMX or eXceed.
2. You must have XPM installed. This package is available from the
   XFree86/OS2 ported software page http://set.gmd.de/~veit/os2/xf86ported.html
3. You must have a complete EMX 0.9C fix2 development environment installed,
   including X331prog.zip or later
3a. If you get the access to these sources for compiling to OS/2, the
   distribution might contain a UNIX-style 'os2move.cmd' file. Use an
   appropriate unix2os2 conversion program to make it usable (since it
   is unlikely that you will ever get access to the sources, this is just
   a reminder for me :-)
4. Since Dr. Zhao has moved and renamed a few things in a non-standard way,
   e.g. Imakefile to Imakefile.os2 which won't work, run the script
   os2move.cmd from this top directory; this should move the things back
   to the places where they were meant to be.
5. The config mechanism to compile XForms is not supported; instead
   use the Imakefiles:
	xmkmf -a
	make all
	make install
	make install.man
6. Note the imake process will overwrite provided Makefiles in the
   subdirectories. This is no problem unless you want to use special
   targets. The Imakefiles will build everything which you can get, so
   there is no selection among library only, forms design tool and demos.
   See the Imakefile in the FORMS directory for selecting shared vs. static
   libs. By default, this Imakefile is setup to build both shared and
   static libraries.
7. Demo executables are installed in \XFree86\bin\xforms_demo, the source
   for these demos is in \XFree86\src\xforms. The code there is not the
   source code of Xforms!
8. Currently, only the pmbrowse demo does not work, the others should function
   as expected.
