We apply the theory of the mutual compactificability to some
spaces, mostly derived from the real line. For example, any
noncompact locally connected metrizable generalized continuum, the
Tichonov cube without its zero point , as well as the Cantor discontinuum without its zero point are of the same class of mutual compactificability as .
