Hi there!:

I’m building a multimedia documental database using Oracle 6.0
as the support for data files, document archival and management
of distribution of data. Motif is being used as the interface.

I’m doing this project on an IBM RS6000 as a part of a collaboration
of LNEC ( the portuguese National Engineering Laboratory ) in a
EEC project called Alpha DIDO ( Distributed Intelligent Data Operation ).

The database will have a natural multilingual interface for queries
and makes heavy use of terminologies, thesaurus and classification methods
for query expansion, restriction, etc.

The database will be able to store documents in any format ( MPEG, GIF,
Postscript, etc ) delegating the handling/editing of these file formats
on client programs: info about them is stored with the document. We’re
thinking of relying heavily on SGML.

I’d be interested in swapping info/ideas/solutions/tips/code with people
working/having worked on similar projects.

E-mail me if you’re interested.

C U!

I have only found one issue of Wired here in Portugal
so I will have to subscribe.

Can someone give me the e-mail address for subscriptions ?
BTW how many issues are out ? I think I have number one, the
one with Bruce Sterling babbling about virtual war…

Hope you can help me.

C U!

I’m looking for the source or the binaries for Motif.

I have an Amiga running Unix with X Windows.

As anyone ported Motif to this platform ? Is the source available ?
What about the binaries ?

Thanx in advance for your answer.

C U!

The subject says it all: anyone out there with a
working K1 MIDIMAP.CFG ( for a K1 hooked up to a PC with Windows, obviously! ).

The MAP should emulate MIDI GS.

Please email me the file ( uuencoded ) or tell me where I can ftp.

Thanx in advance.

I’m looking for a screens/forms/dialog designer for
Motif.

I’ve already looked up dirt,serpent,winterp, but its
not what I’m looking for: what I’d like is something
like the NeXT Interface Builder where after designing
something you get the C source code ( Objective C ).

I’d like to design a main window with buttons dialogs
and so forth and have the equivalent source code in C
so that I could then implement the application specifics.

Anyone out there know something like this ( commercial
or PD, shareware ) ? Please mail me any info at:
