Any experience w/wxWindows?
I downloaded wxWindows last week and installed it to use with my Dev-C++ complier, but I have no idea how to use it. I've searched the wxwindows.org website extensively and can't find any documentation about how to use it! The only documentation I could find was about the functions used in the library files. Has anyone used this? I looked for a forum on the website, but couldn't find that either. I guess there's no support for it since it's free.
And how do you make programs for Macs? I assume you need to use a Mac API like Coca or RealBasic, but I looked at the source code for Audacity and it's all one big project...so I'm wondering how they seperated it into three OS versions.

i never dealt with creating MAC software, but creating cross-platform software most times comes down to using a lot of #ifdefīs...
Can you find many of them in the code? Then itīs just as good as writing two programs of their own... :(

I know that python has a pretty well documented interface to wxWindows (http://www.wxpython.org/). Maybe you can get some ideas there, or write your code in python :).

Thanks for the tip! I looked at a tutorial there on making a basic "skeleton" program, and I was very suprised to see how simple it was. I have never done any Python b/c I heard it was hard to learn, and I've never seen any jobs posted in my area looking for Python programmers, so I figured it wasn't worth the effort. Judging from that one application, it actually looks easier than C++!
