What is eXene?

EXene is a multi-threaded X Window System toolkit written in Concurrent ML (CML). EXene was written by Emden Gansner and John Reppy, with contributions from Daniel Wang and Thomas Yan.


EXene is distributed as part of the SML/NJ system. We recommend using SML/NJ Version 110.42, which can be downloaded from here.



These manuals are old, but are still the best description of the eXene APIs. Most of the changes that have happened since these were written are changes to the widget library.

The CML FAQ is a useful source of information on CML related issues.
