pwlib: A portable application development class library.1

Package available in: [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

PWLib is a moderately large class library that was originally designed as a method to produce applications that run on both Microsoft Windows and Unix/X11 systems. It includes classes for I/O portability, multi-threading portability, aid in producing Unix daemons and NT services portably, and all sorts of Internet protocols. It also offers basic "container" classes such as arrays, linear lists, sorted lists (RB Tree), and dictionaries (hash tables) which were all created before the STL. This library is used by the OpenH323 library.
