Subject: Interviews for gdct and EPICS

To those interested in gdct:

I've made changes to the InterViews package so that it easily compiles
under Solaris, SunOS, and HP-UX.  I attempted to make the imake build
structure of InterViews compatible with the EPICS extension build
structure so free_gdct will build easily.  The object/executable file
directories now match the $HOST_ARCH convention.  See the README.JBK file
when you untar this InterViews distribution.  Get InterViews from here:

epics.aps.anl.gov:pub/epics/extensions/iv_epics_3.1.tar.gz.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Compiling free_gdct using this latest distribution of InterViews:
You must have the latest version of free_gdct.  Get the source in the same
directory as InterViews on epics: file gdct_src.tar.gz.  Make sure
to change your config/CONFIG_SITE file to point INTERVIEWS_BIN to the
correct spot.  Remove the INTERVIEWS variable from all other
CONFIG_SITE.Unix* files.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is some useful information regarding free_gdct.  I changed the
fonts and page size for free_gdct with the intention of getting the print
function working.  If you name the program gdct instead of free_gdct, it
should automatically look like similar to the original gdct.  Here are
the changes made to free_gdct:

1) Old gdct had a drawing area of 3x3 pages (9 total pages).  The free_gdct
   has only one page.

2) Old gdct used a large pleasant font, free_gdct uses a tiny horrible font.

When gdct databases are brought up under free_gdct, they appear up and to the
right.  This is because the free_gdct viewer see the database as 1 page
whereas gdct saw it as a 3x3 grid of pages.
