ANNC: Reliable Software releases their own C++ Windows Library

P: n/a
Seattle, WA -- Seattle-based Reliable Software® announces the release
their Windows Library into the public domain. Reliable Software Windows
Library, RSWL, is the foundation for their compact, feature rich
applications including the flagship product, Code Co-op. The use of
RSWL in both individual and commercial products is free and not
restricted to public domain projects.

RSWL provides a thin, easy to understand, object-oriented layer
encapsulating the Windows API. Its architecture is based on the ideas
described in the book "C++ in Action, Industrial Strength Programming
Techniques" (Addison-Wesley 2001). Besides including the encapsulation
of basic Windows infrastructure, like handles, message loops, Window
classes and instances, dialog boxes, and Windows controls; it also
provides sub-libraries for many of the Windows subsystems. There is a
compact graphics library built around GDI, a file library that includes
memory-mapped files, a thread library with synchronization primitives,
a network library including FTP, BITS, SMTP and POP3, and many others.
More information can be found online at

Reliable Software uses a novel mechanism for the distribution of RSWL
sources and updates using a free, e-mail based, version of its own
distributed version control system, Code Co-op.

Reliable Software's contributions to the development community go
beyond Code Co-op. On their website, they provide extensive information
for developers, including tutorials, discussion forums, and an on-line
book. The founder of Reliable Software is the author of "C++ in Action"
and a regular contributor to various trade magazines.
