The book attempts to provide a programmer with an easy introduction to the OSF/Motif graphical user interface (GUI). It is organized as a series of tutorials, each of which builds upon the previous. It starts at the level of "What is a Widget?", and builds to the level of "User-defined resource types". Along the way, most of the major elements of Motif are presented, with sample programs that illustrate their use. The target reader is an experienced C programmer and user of the X Window System, under the UNIX operating system. The reader should be familiar with the tools provided by UNIX for the compilation and testing programs; while this book does examine the process by which a Motif program is compiled, it does not explain that process. It also assumes that the reader is familiar with "X" terms such as "pointer" and "display". The author has written his book so that the reader can use either Motif version 1.0 or 1.1.
