NASAView is a PDS archive product display program that runs on multiple platforms in a GUI environment. This application was built using the Label Library Light (L3), Object Access Library (OAL) and the XVT Development Solution for C package. Label Library Light parses PDS ODL labels and creates an in-memory representation of the label information. The Object Access Library uses the parse tree and accesses the actual PDS object. The XVT Development solution supplies the cross-platform GUI support and an object-oriented environment.

Newer versions of Linux (e.g., RedHat, CentOS, etc.) are shipping with version 2.3.X of the Motif library. The Linux binaries listed above only support version 2.2.X of Motif. In our testing of NASAView with the newer version of Motif, we have discovered and reported a couple of bugs in Motif which impact the functionality of NASAView. Although one of the bugs has been fixed to date, that fix has not been included in an official release. Once an official release of Motif that includes fixes for these bugs is available, we will test and release an updated version of NASAView that supports this newer version of Motif.
