    Creating a GUI for C++


    Does anyone know how to create a GUI for C++ code? Is there some program
    that will make things a little easier? If you have any sites or books that
    are helpful in this area please let me know!
    Thanks

    A GUI is an operating system specific task. You'll need to learn the API of
    the OS you're targetting. For Windows, MFC is a good library for developing
    GUIs. For Macintosh, PowerPlant is the C++ library of choice. Other OS's
    have similar frameworks available usually. Some sights to look at might be
    www.asktog.com, www.codeguru.com, and msdn.microsoft.com.

    Why learn n+1 OS specific APIs, when there are several cross-platform GUI
    libraries?
    The advantage is that you write the code once, than just compile it on other
    platform and it works.

    See for instance the Qt library, at http://www.trolltech.com/products/download/


    It works for Windows and Unix.
