All over it.
A lot of work. Yes.
In last three days:
~ Downloaded SWT, wxWindows, win32 generics (John's work),
GTK source, Swing source, Safari (apple web core), and
stepped through control library of Gecko via LXR.
~ Installed Eclipse CDT for Win32, Linux, Symbian, PalmOS,
installed XCode 1.5 for OS X.
~ Built "Hello, World!" windowing applications for GDI,
Carbon, Nokia's four separate Symbian SDKs, and PalmOS.
~ Reading through Boost.Build ./kernel/ in order to create
a "bundle" rule for Carbon.
Learning quite a bit. Trying to share it.
