I have tried that, and it seems not to work.
Oh! AIX sems the only Core stopped at 2.3 version! I have not AIX so i can't say, but from what i read, seems that View needs X from startup. This page lists differences in global functions betwween core 2.3.0 and core 2.5.6: i should like to add a 256/250 diff, but i have not that version of Core for Windows. I think that a compatibilty layer for 2.3 can be built copying these functions: 1.1. alter 1.2. attempt 1.3. build-attach-body 1.4. build-markup 1.5. component? 1.7. context 1.10. decode-url 1.11. dispatch 1.12. dump-obj 1.15. extract 1.19. has 1.30. set-user-name 1.32. sign? 1.35. suffix? Obviously, many functions (native or not) can have more refinements, different argument types or bug fixed, but this has not been checked in the above page. For example, i should try to copy the new Help function (and the Send function :-). --- Ciao Romano
