gXipmsg is a Motif version of the wonderful tool IPMsg found on this site: http://ipmsg.org/index.html.en
This project taught me a lot about Motif and TCP/UDP. The goal was to design an application that can be build and run
on all *nix platforms with as much as possible no need of modifiyng anything, as inspired by the O'Reilly book and sample codes.

The main goal for this project is to utilize the fast and easy file transfer on any *nix system between other platforms without
setting up NFS,FTP,SAMBA or other client-server apps for this purpose. 


Release history:
	
BETA 1.0:
	* Very fast download of multiple files
	* Optimized memory handling
	* Optimized widget handling
	* Optimized UDP/TCP handling

ALPHA 1.0:
	* More stable and bug fixes
	* Enhanced GUI
	* Enhance architecture to support all UNIX flavors

APLHA:
	* Messaging thru UDP protocol
	* Can broadcast message to specific people

	
gXipmsg was tested on the following:
1. Intel x86: 
	* Windows XP through Cygwin
	* Solaris 10 through VMWare
	* FreeBSD 9 with OpenMotif through VBox
	* Ubuntu 12.04 with OpenMotif through VBox 

2. MIPS:
	* IRIX 6.5 on SGI O2 and Octane
