Garnet1. A graphical object editor and Macintosh environment. 2. A user interface development environment for Common Lisp and X11 from The Garnet project team. It helps you create graphical, interactive user interfaces. Version 2.2 includes the following: a custom object-oriented programming system which uses a prototype-instance model. automatic constraint maintenance allowing properties of objects to depend on properties of other objects and be automatically re-evaluated when the other objects change. The constraints can be arbitrary Lisp expressions. Built-in, high-level input event handling. Support for gesture recognition. Widgets for multi-font, multi-line, mouse-driven text editing. Optional automatic layout of application data into lists, tables, trees or graphs. Automatic generation of PostScript for printing. Support for large-scale applications and data visualisation. Also supplied are: two complete widget sets, one with a Motif look and feel implemented in Lisp and one with a custom look and feel. Interactive design tools for creating parts of the interface without writing code: Gilt interface builder for creating dialog boxes. Lapidary interactive tool for creating new widgets and for drawing application-specific objects. C32 spreadsheet system for specifying complex constraints. Not yet available: Jade automatic dialog box creation system. Marquise interactive tool for specifying behaviours. ftp://a.gp.cs.cmu.edu/usr/garnet/garnet.
