Thanks Charles, so it has nothing to do with CPlat then? I was just
confused as to why it was mentioned in connection with Rev/CPlat and
thought maybe I'd have to look at it in order to evaluate CPlat.
BTW, I can't say I'm overly impressed with CPlat so far, for the
1. You have to download three separate archives and then splice the
folder structure together by hand.
2. You have to then muck around in CodeWarrior setting up Source Trees.
3. I did this and tried to build the sample HelloWorld project and
got g-zillions or errors since some files are missing.
So far I've spent about 5 hours on it and still haven't got "Hello World" up!
Contract this to RunRev:
1. Download one archive.
2. Double click the RunRev App.
3. Create your *own* Hello World (I did this ages ago).
Total time (without ever looking at RunRev before) 30 mins tops!
To me anyway, this looks like a no-brainer, I just can't understand
why *ANYONE* would want to build a GUI in CPlat (or any other C/C++
based framework) when Rev is available!
