Software Pundits Inc, in Burlington, Massachusetts, has introduced its Mirage Windows-to-Unix conversion system which it says provides Object Linking & Embedding and Dynamic Data Exchange-compatible functionality for Unix. According to the company, Mirage enables applications developed using the Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit to be developed and run in native Motif or Open Look environments and on Sparc or iAPX-86 systems. (The company’s Affinity Object Linking & Embedding for Unix software already combines Microsoft OLE 1.0 applications programming interfaces with the Link, Embed and Launch-to-Edit technology it jointly developed with Lotus Development Corp. A Windows application is compiled on a Unix system and linked to Mirage libraries rather than the Windows development kit, enabling, Software Pundits says, a common set of source code to be compiled to produce Windows and Unix versions of an application. Mirage translates 550 Windows calls into X Window and Motif/Open Look calls while complying to both applications programming interfaces and supports all Windows 3.1 data types, structures and formats. Mirage costs UKP7,500 under a range of Unixes and Windows 3.1, Win32s support is set for mid-year with Win32 to follow.
