Re: Can't do cross lnguage, cross platform interoperability at function level

I found a few reasonable ways to approach true cross-platform applications in C/C++:

a) Use Qt

b) Use GTK

c) Use wxWidgets [and, with some creativity, you can take an existing MFC application and turn it into a wxWidgets application with a 'relatively small sized' effort.

d) a C language toolkit I've been working on for a while, now

and plenty of '#ifdef WIN32' and similar blocks around system-dependent stuff. But it's not all that hard, really.

No need for UWP or its new replacement. No need for RT. No need for ".Not" or C-pound or that disease-sounding 'mono' thing. Or ".Not Whore" (aka '.Net Core').

(now, where's my clue-bat?)
