Newtonlink is basicly written in Perl, and therefore should run on every platform where Perl is available. The graphical user interface is written in Tcl/Tk, which is also available for most platforms. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any suggestions or enhancements for running Newtonlink on other platforms.
This is the main development platform for Newtonlink. Newtonlink is tested with :
Andrew Maier reported that he runs Newtonlink on a Linux/PPC system.
Eric Bohm reported that he runs Newtonlink on a Linux/Alpha system.
Stephan Kauss reported that he runs Newtonlink on a FreeBSD system.
Mark R. Bowyer did all tests with Newtonlink under Solaris. Please contact Mark if you have any special problems under Solaris.
Gerald Hofer did all enhancements of Newtonlink for SGI Irix. Please contact Gerald if you have any special problems under Irix.
Roland Tanglao did all enhancements of Newtonlink for HP-UX. Please contact Roland if you have any special problems under HP-UX.
The first port of Newtonlink to OS/2 was done by Ralph Scharpf. Now Mark Crocker is working on the adaption of Newtonlink to OS/2.
Using Newtonlink under OS/2 makes no sense with applications like Xrolodex and Plan, but the options -pr, -nsmail, -nsadr, -getpkg, -getpnam -send, -inst, -soupinfo, -socal and -input will work.
Gerhard Kurz works on an enhancement of Newtonlink for MkLinux. Please contact Gerhard if you have any special problems under MkLinux.
Scott Fringer is working on a port to BeOS. The command line version is running, but because there is currently no Xon/Xoff protocol available for the serial lines under BeOS, it is still under development.
