Welcome to EZWin, an IDE independant, basic Win32 toolkit for C++.
For those who have had to program in win32, there have been a number of major development
Each has advantages and disadvantages, but
(focusing just on the provided API of the environment), often are:
- The environment tries to provide a "can do everything" environment that
makes the resultant libraries large and full of unused code.
- There are a dependancies on a number of libraries in order for the application to run.
- The programming environments are fixed to an IDE with changes in this often difficult to achieve.
EZWin tries to overcome these problems. It is a small toolkit that interfaces directly to the win32 API,
making it dependant on only the standard windows API libraries. It also will work with Microsoft Visual C and
Borland C, and in all probability, any other windows compiler. ALl functionality is kept as basic as possible.
Add to this the fact that it a free library, licenced by LGPL, it allows both freeware and commercial
entities to use it.
EZWin is NOT a cross platform library. It has been designed for win32 programming only.
