win-3.1 viewer ?

Hi !

After the first successfull test on a local (linux) machine, I wonder if
I could use the viewer on a win-3.1 box that is connected to mine on a
plip (1mbit/s) link. Only, there is no viewer compiled for windows 3.1.
Is it possible to do this ? And if, could anyone make a binary available
somewhere ? I am too much a linux person, and don't have any windows
compilers (nor any experience in using them). And I really don't want to
upgrade the old machine to '95, it does what it is supposed to do, and I
don't want to touch it.

thanks

thorsten

Re: win-3.1 viewer ? [In reply to]

Thorsten -

It should be easy to write a Win 3.1 viewer. The current Win32 viewer is
multithreaded, which helps when it is connected to multiple servers at once,
so it would need to be cut down to a single-threaded version.

Tristan has a borrowed Win 3.1 machine at home and uses Java under IE4 to
dial into work; IE4 also gives you the dialup PPP which is normally missing
under 3.1. I think it's painfully slow, though...

I hope to put a list of suggested projects like this on the web server later
today, to see if anyone will volunteer to have a go. I don't have a
compiler that does 16-bit any more - Microsoft no longer support it.
