The AIX binaries are in the file:                                                                                                                                tarfile.ibm.gz             (Includes the PDF SEDIT and S/REXX documentation) Create a specific directory for SEDIT and S/REXX, and move the binaries file on it. For example, type:                                                                                                                             # mkdir /home/xed # gunzip tarfile.ibm.gz # tar -xvf tarfile.ibm SEDIT uses the alt-keys combinations in a manner that conflicts with the usual MWM motif window manager binding.                                                                                                                             SEDIT uses the alt-keys combinations in a manner that conflicts with the usual MWM motif window manager binding. If the user wants to be able to use (for example) the alt-mouse keys within SEDIT, the user must modify his ~/.mwmrc file by typing:                                                                                                                             # cd {install-dir-sedit}         # typically /home/xed # ./install mwmrc                                                                                                                             install looks for lines like:                                                                                                                                 Meta<Btn1Down>      icon|window     f.lower     Meta<Btn2Down>      icon|window     f.lower                                                                                                                             and changes them into:                                                                                                                                 Meta<Btn1Down>      icon|frame      f.lower     Meta<Btn2Down>      icon|frame      f.lower                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         MWM does not allow the use of the Shift-Escape key. To enter the 3270 "Erase All field" command, the user must use Control-Escape instead.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         MWM does not allow the use of the Alt-Escape key. To enter the 3270 "Print Screen" command, the user must use Shift-Control-Escape instead.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Using dialog boxes with MWM                                                                                                                             When MWM is in click-to-type mode (Mwm*keyboardFocusPolicy: explicit), it is necessary to add the following resources in the user's ~/.Xdefaults file:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Mwm*dialog*focusAutoRaise: false Mwm*sedit*focusAutoRaise:  false You will need to request a temporary license key to activate SEDIT and/or S/REXX. First type: # ./seditid This will display the cpu-id that needs to be e-mailed to your local distributor to get in return the license key. To install the key(s), type: # ./install sedit # ./install rexx and follow the instructions. SEDIT can then be started with the following command: # ./xed Please see the PDF Manual for further information.
Note: SEDIT 4.80 and S/REXX 2.80 are the last releases to support AIX
