How was the pine interface developed ?
Posted on 1998-01-29
I am trying to develop a mail reader similar to that of pine with a
minimal set of features. I would like to know the languuage
that was used to develop the interface to the popular mail client pine. Pl. do not refer me to the pine website. I am developing this mail reader in 'C' under 'Linux 2.0.0'. I am very desperate to provide a GUI interface,do suggest me a best way to do this. Due to time constraint, I have given up learning XWINDOWS as it involves a very large learning curve. I was referred to Tcl/Tk but I do not know whether it possible to provide all the basic features of an email client with it . Do suggest me a good solution.
I am having the Linux slackware kernel 2.0.0. Thank u in advance.
