Abstract: We use a technique involving skeletoids in -compact metric ARs to obtain some new examples of spaces homeomorphic to the -compact linear spaces and . For example, we show that (1) every -dimensional metric linear space is homeomorphic to ; (2) every -compact metric linear space which is an AR and which contains an infinite-dimensional compact convex subset is homeomorphic to ; and (3) every weak product of a sequence of -compact metric ARs which contain Hilbert cubes is homeomorphic to .
