There was some discussion in '99/'00 about having Squeak natively speak VNC.
I just tried out Squeak talking to a Linux Xvnc server, with a client on a
slow handheld over the network.
I found that there is about a 1.5 to 2 second delay between typing a
character and seeing it on the display, which is obviously unacceptable for
I don't know what I could do to speed this up, or to reduce memory. So having
Squeak speak VNC directly is promising.
I know that Adam Feuer and Stephen Pair both did some work on this, as well
as Bert Freudenberg.
Is there any interest in doing this collaboratively?
I looked at the Xvnc code, and there's way too much there. My feeling was
that it would be easier and cleaner to start from the protocol documentation
and do a clean port, using the Xvnc code as a reference only when and if
