X Sharing and Recording System

XShare is a new program for X Window for sharing applications and recording actions. You don't need any special hardware or software, only the standard X11R5 or X11R6 distribution.

What can I do with XShare ?
You can share applications between remote users: there is a sender who runs XShare and then from it he recalls other applications, and there are receivers who see the same sender's windows on their displays. Sender can leave the control of these programs to the receivers, and the remote users can use them as the applications are running on their hosts.

XShare can record the actions (the events in X11) done by the sender in an application, and play them successively. During the recording the sender can write notes about his actions, and during the playing a window with them will appear on the displays.

This is useful for teleteaching on software, and to create little demo or lessons.

What I need to run XShare ?
You don't need any special software or hardware to run XShare, because:

Which platforms XShare supports ?
XShare was developed on Linux and AIX, but it's portable on every X Window System.

XShare realized by Stefano Grassi, at the University of Milan, Italy, 1994/95.
