Abstract
The PEX extension for X Windows provides an extensive and sometimes complex library of functions and utilities for rendering 3 dimensional graphics in the X Windows environment. This document describes the initial effort to integrate PEX into the RTX Graphical User Interface for the JANUS wargames system. The potential return for this effort is the reduction, simplification and possibly elimination of RTX code, with an overall increase in system performance. By replacing custom RTX code with PEX library functions, and using PEX's ability to store graphics objects on the display server, this first effort to introduce PEX indicates that these objectives could be met.
