GWHIS Viewer for Microsoft Windows
differs from NCSA Mosaic
for Microsoft Windows
in several ways including:
similiar to the X Window System
version. Edit Annotation and Delete Annotation work. All Buttons and Menu Items are "greyed out" while files are being retreived and processed. This prevents the user from queing up requests to the TCP/IP
stack which causes many crashes. Look and Feel
are similiar to the X version. On-line help is complete. Functional Setup program. Greater overall stability.
