Building Portable C++ Applications with YACL

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, 1996 - Computers - 569 pages
Here is the first book on a general-purpose programming library which can be ported to multiple platforms with little effort. Portability is a serious challenge for C++. YACL is an application-centered class library toolkit of GUI and general purpose classes that makes portability a natural spin-off while providing high-level abstractions. Applications coded to use YACL's classes will run on any of the supported platforms with merely a recompilation. Highlights Provides a set of classes that presents a single high-level programming interface Describes how to operate YACL class library on five different platforms Renders complete platform independence of public class interfaces Maximizes reusability of the classes Source Code The current version of YACL code is available for anonymous ftp from ftp://ftp.aw.com/cseng/authors/sridhar/yacl . Also, a free disk is available; further details are noted inside the book. 0201832763B04062001
