We analyze the look and feel of each display and discuss its software design. Developed using the Motif Toolkit, each display runs on an X windows work station. In the area of look and feel, we discuss the pros and cons of graphically depicting the instrument light path. In the area of software design, we discuss Motif and Xlib programming techniques.
