Microsoft Releases Source Code for Windows Template Library
Microsoft Releases Source Code for Windows Template Library: "Last month, Microsoft made available on SourceForge an internally developed product called the Windows Installer XML (WiX).
Jason Matusow, manager of Microsoft's shared-source initiative, told eWEEK in an interview Wednesday that the company expects advanced C programmers to be most interested in using the WTL code, which can be found here.
The WTL is essentially a lightweight windowing C++ template library that allows developers to build simple Windows graphical user interfaces on applications.
Visual C++ developers have used WTL to develop a wide variety of applications requiring a front-end Graphical User Interface (GUI). Applications using WTL have been developed for desktop Windows as well as for Windows CE and have ranged from basic utilities to commercial consumer applications, to vertical commercial applications."
