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.
Since then the system has grown to having quite good application to areas other than mere Windows GUI portability. 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 became the answer to all our prayers. Unfortunately, due to intertia and the GNU C++ inadequate support of templates, this library will probably not be ported to STL in the near future.
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.
