I can not answer that question. But imo, to use LuaMotif one need to
have at least basic Motif and X/Xt knowledge. Motif is not very new and
it took the Open Group way too long to release at least a somewhat open
source version (OpenMotif), and in this time, other toolkits like GTK
etc. have seen the light. There was even a free Motif clone, Lesstiff.
I am using LuaMotif because we applications written in C that already
use OpenMotif, so we can scipt them in Lua.
