Senior Project - GInX


Grasp Interpreter for the X Window System

Senior Project: 1991-1992
Dale Barnard, Jeanette Fielden, Thomas Hintz and Brian Reynolds
Boulder, CO

Grasp is a very popular graphics presentation and animation system for MS-DOS. It is implemented as a specialized computer language, with variables and control constructs, along with special commands for doing graphics and animation. The goal of this project was to implement a Grasp interpreter that runs under the X Window System. This allows one to develop presentations and animations on MS-DOS and run them on any UNIX workstation that supports X Windows.

The project involved the design and implementation of a generic interpreter, using an object-oriented approach. Grasp specific details were then incorporated into the interpreter to produce an interpreter for Grasp. The project was implemented in C, using the X Window System and Motif toolkit.
