OpenVMS X Font Server? (Font Daemon)

» close window

The Question is:

Does Compaq provide an X font server running under OpenVMS?
We use PC based X servers (Exceed) as X-terminals to run applications on an
 OpenVMS machine. As Exceed does not really support scalable fonts (Type1),
 we'd like to provide the fonts using a font server.

The Answer is :

  DECwindows provides a font daemon (DECW$FD).
  In particular, see information on the DECW$XTERMINAL_FONT and
  Also please take a look at the PATHWORKS 32 eXcursion package manuals
  and at VXT (Freeware) documentation.
