What is RAD-C++ ?
Radcpp is a GUI library written for windows.It is purely based on windows native API so there is no burden to learn any new thing out of the box.As it is purely based on C++,you can get all the advantages of OOP in your windows program.Before diving into RAD-C++,lets see what are it’s main features:
- Faster program deveopement & less memory consumption
- Ease of use & flexibility
- No special configuration
- Support for OpenGL & Unicode
- Less compile time & memory required
- Used under VC & Dev-C++
- Most of common controls covered
RadC++ is available in Devpak’s repository or recent version on thier own website.You can even download the individual library.Let’s take a look what is missing with it.
RadC++ allows you to program under windows platform only,you can’t port your programs outside windows.As far as my opinion,it is good if you’re creating freeware applications.
