I don't think a port has been done. There is only one easy way to
port RasMol to OS/2; get an OS/2 X server for OS/2 TCP/IP that also
gives you the capability to create X clients in OS/2. You should then
be able to compile it reasonably easily (especially if you use gcc for
OS/2 as the C compiler).
This is rather an expensive solution. The alternative is to write a
Presentation Manager version. This would mean doing what was done for
RASWIN, and would likely be very difficult (OS/2 PM and X are rather
If I were you I'd stick to using RasWin under OS/2.
There is a third option; run a small Linux system (takes about 60Mb
hard disk space for X and most things you need), and compile RasMol
for Linux. I have done this, and it's pretty quick. I've never tried
RasWin, but I'll do that and tell you how the speed compares between
the two operating systems.
