I think the version on moon is an older version of LTPlus which was
modified to run under X-Windows. This version has quite a few bugs
and runs very slow. It does not show LTPlus at it's best.
The last public domain version by John Dabritz ran in VGA mode under
SCO Unix. It was very good.

Dan's current email address is: dhaskell at halcyon.com
His phone numbers are: (503) 257-9042
The first number is Flat Earth's business phone. It is permanent.
However, it seems to be easier to reach him at the second number.
He ported the last public domain version of LTPlus and continued to
use VGA mode graphics. The end result is a fast robust product.
He has also fixed a few bugs and added some minor features. I
thought his price was more than $100, but I'm not sure.

Infotec's product is greatly enhanced from LTPlus. It includes full
projection support, vector editing and many features not included
in the public domain software. It runs in X-Windows and does so
very efficiently. It is available for most Unix workstations.
Infotec also has training and support programs.
For sales information call: (503) 236-6373.
Finally, Ron Berry from Eugene, Oregon USA has a version of LTPlus
ported to DOS. I'm not sure, but I've heard he charges $500.00 for
it. I am told that it is a high quality port, runs fast, and has all
the features of the public domain version of LTPlus except for digitizer
support. For sales information:

P.S. Please don't totally trust my descriptions of these products.
I have some association with all the above people, so I don't claim to
be an unbiased customer.
