C GUI programming

I have been googling, but can seem to find out about C GUI libraries.

My main platform is Windows, but it would be nice to find a cross platform
library.

I've been programming with php, which has a C/C++ syntax structure, but want
to move on to compliled languages.

I was all ready to go with C++ and wxWindows, but I'm applying for an entry
level programming possition. They use their own propriatary language, with
is a structured/proceedural language. I thought that if I study C, it would
make me a better programmer for my employer.

I also have the "Algorithms with C", and "Code Reading" books, that focus
mainly on the C language. I'm sure that it wouldn't be hard for me to change
my thinking and implement both books into a C++ sense.

The main thing is, I love programming in general, but I'd like to be able to
code GUI's also.

Can anyone give me a direction to head in, where I can learn more about GUI
programming in C. Idealy, I'd love to start my compiled language studies
with C, then move on to C++ once I have a solid foundation in
structured/proceedural programming.

GTK+ is a cross platform GUI library written in C. You can also use
GTK+ from C, C++, PHP, Python, Java, Ada and other languages. You know
GNOME and GIMP are based on GTK+2.
Official Site: http://www.gtk.org/
Windows Port: http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/
GTK+ Language Bindings: http://www.gtk.org/bindings.html

Glade, GUI designer for GTK+, are also avairable for Windows.

It really scares you, doesn't it?
That people might actually pay attention to what I write and you might
lose control of the ng.

Believe me, I have no desire to gag any of you "regulars". You show
your true colors every time you (metaphorically ) open your mouths.

Please don't post non-ASCII characters to Usenet.

Anyway, thanks for calling me a pedant. I view it as a compliment, although
it is typically intended as an insult, typically directed at those who know
what they're talking about by those who don't.

>>?noun
1. a person who makes an excessive or inappropriate display of learning.


Your example code didn't compile, and your explanation about function
parameters was broken. What would you call a person who makes an excessive
or inappropriate display of ignorance?
Yes, I missed a semicolon.

GREAT HEATHFIELD, GREAT. A missing semicolon is all is needed
to qualify the 380 pages as a pile of shit.

And this is a TUTORIAL, not a treatise for everything
about C. So, you read the first 15 pages and you want
me to introduce all pedantic distinctions to really
CONFUSE everybody.

You say:
The tutorial also claims "this is not a full-fledged introduction"
and that there are "other, better books"

but this does not mean that
"Even the author doesn't have a lot of faith in it"
as you misunderstand,

it means just that I am not like other people that are
convinced that their work IS THE ONLY AND BEST POSSIBLE OF ALL.

No.

I know that are other people better than me that wrote better books than
what I did.
Your argument that I do not understand the difference between
parameters and arguments is NONSENSE Heathfield.

I cite the "wikipedia"

< quote >
Many programmers use parameter and argument interchangeably , depending
on context to distinguish the meaning. In practice, distinguishing
between the two terms is usually unnecessary in order to use them
correctly or communicate their use to other programmers.
< end quote >
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paramet...mputer_science)

And you want me that I go into those PEDANTIC DETAILS at page 15
of the tutorial (what actually is page 5, excluding title, contents
etc).

But, but, but. Heathfield took it as a *compliment*, so it can hardly
be referred to as "calling [the critic] names".

Besides which, as you well know, Jacob (and I and any other sane person)
takes excception to your use of the word "valid". Something about a
"parallel universe"...

Yup. In tutorial code, that's not good. I suggest compiling the code in
future.

You appear to have missed my other crits, and my explicit statement that I
had only read the first few pages.

pedâ?§antâ? , /Ë^pÉ>dnt/
â?"noun
1. a person who makes an excessive or inappropriate display of learning.
2. a person who overemphasizes rules or minor details.
3. a person who adheres rigidly to book knowledge without regard to
common sense.

Useful clc-related links:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clique
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspergers
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_programming_language

And keep in mind that Heathfield:

a) Considers "pedant" to be a compliment
and b) Considers "Aspergers" to be an insult

Neither is remotely correct. What a marooon!
A compiler gives the superficial impression of being like a human. We even
use the term "language" to describe the way we communicate with it.
Unfortunately we don't even know how to set about building a compiler with
anything remotely resembling real language. One that could understand this
post, for instance. So the programmer does have to adopt a computer-like
personality if he wishes his programs to be correct.

This includes things such as
"He claims on page 18 that "the fn2 function will always return 7", whereas
the truth is that the fn2 function will not compile, because it's missing a
rather important syntactical element."

Sadly, if you miss off a semicolon, or replace it with a colon, the
compiler won't be clever enough to make the correction.

However there can be a problem with a pedagogy. Often it is better to skate
over minor details, such as the fact that printf() doesn't always write to
the screen, in the initial stages. People who are highly knowledgeable in
the subject, but not teachers, often don't appreciate this.

Yeah, thanks. You missed the bibliography too, the first entry.
You are one of the people that write better books heathfield.

It is a pity that you are so pedantic.
