Nature of problem:
Present day tools for drawing Feynman diagrams are script or macro oriented as in the Feynman package available for Latex. While effective, these tools are not as easy to use as they could be in a world where graphic workstations are commonplace.
A CAD tool is provided to help drawing interactively the Feynman diagrams. It is easy to use and it produces an output in Encapsulated Postscript suitable for inclusion in publications. The program requires the Xmt library  to build the user interface.
See the long write-up. (The program is restricted to all Motif 1.2 and Posix compatible workstations with a (licensed) Xmt library.)
It is an interactive program, an average diagram should not take more than a couple of minutes.
