Re: Questions on cross-platform development...

Hello Thaths

I read quiet a few mail son this thread.

I think Qt is good choice. The C++ extensions, Arsalan ia talking about are
signals and slot and I find them useful. They fit nicely in c++.

Besides if you use cygwin, then you will have all the GNU tools, plus makefile
compatibility too. But don't know if that suffice for interacting with native,
VC++ compiled programs.

My two paisa...
