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.

It's a perfectly valid program for a freestanding C implementation.
The entire C standard library is even available, and most of it[1] works
as advertised, which is rather more than is required of a freestanding
implementation.

(I'll leave it to others to refer to the precise definition of what
makes an implementation freestanding and draw the obvious conclusion
about the platform it's running on.)

I just thought it would be more topical to tune from C. That would have
been fine if I'd got the pitch of C right.

Hi all, During my degree, BEng (Hons) Electronics and Communications Engineering, we did C programming every year, but I never kept it up, as I had no interest and didn't see the point. But now I really want to get back into it as I see a point with GNU/Linux. I want to get my old skills back and write something or help on some projects etc. I need some good books. I used to have one called "A Book On C", but sold it,

I've been utilising C for lots of small and a few medium-sized personal projects over the course of the past decade, and I've realised lately just how little progress it's made since then. I've increasingly been using scripting languages (especially Python and Bourne shell) which offer the same speed and yet are far more simple and safe to use. I can no longer understand why anyone would willingly use C to program anything but the lowest...

Hi, I'm interested in techniques used to program in an object-oriented way using the C ANSI language. I'm studying the GObject library and Laurent Deniau's OOPC framework published on his web site at http://ldeniau.web.cern.ch/ldeniau/html/oopc/oopc.html. The approach is very instructive. I know that I could do much of this stuff with e.g. C++, but the intellectual challenge of implementing these concepts with pure ANSI C is relevant to...
