Platform Independent Software Development?

Platform Independent Software Development?

Post by Norbert Siekma » Fri, 08 Jul 1994 20:56:34



Hy!

I need some informations about Softwaretools for Platform independent
Development.

There are three categories of interest:

1. 3d-Graphicoutput (like GL or OpenGl)
   - OpenGl
   - Future of OpenGl?
   - are there Informations about the SoftwareKit called "HOOPS"?
   - 3d-CAD-oriented programming libraries?
   - ohter tools?
2. Graphic-User-Interface (GUI) (like XVT)
   - XVT ?
   - other tools
3. Databasehandling (like FoxPro)
   - Clipper
   - Oracel
   - Database programming libraries?
   - other ?

I want to develop an application including this three basic blocks using
C or C++. Platforms to support are for example:
-  MSDOS (may be)
-  MSWindows(32,NT) (IBM-compatible,RS6000)
-  UNIX (Sun Sparc, SGI, HP)
-  System7 (Mac)

Now I'm collecting Informations about these Things and I would be happy
to get some new hints.
Mail me short hints (like prductnames) too.

thanks'
       Norbert
