PWLib is a portable Windows library.
PWLib is a moderately large class library that has its genesis many years ago as a method to product applications to run on both Microsoft Windows and Unix
X-Windows systems. It also was to have a Macintosh port as well but this never eventuated. The parts of the library relating to GUI functions have also been removed.
Since then the system has grown to include many classes that assist in writing
complete multi-platform applications. Classes for I/O portability, multi-threading portability, aid in producing unix daemons and NT services portably and all sorts of internet protocols were added over the years.
All this over and above basic "container" classes such as arrays, linear lists,
sorted lists (RB Tree) and dictionaries (hash tables) which were all created
before STL was standardized. Future versions of PWLib will see many of these
classes replaced or supplemented by STL.
The library was used extensively for all our in-house products. Then we decided to support the open H323 project by throwing in some of the code written for one of our products. Thus, required PWLib so it got thrown into the open source world as well.
