Motif is composed of many different widgets such as buttons, sliders, and menus. Conceptually, XRT/table adds a new widget to Motif. The widget displays rows and columns of text information, pixmaps, and widgets in a scrollable window and can interact with a user. The table widget has resources that determine how the table will look and behave. Writing programs using XRT/table is very similar to writing any other kind of Motif program; you now have one more Motif widget to work with.
