C++ wrapper - Gtk--

Looking to die with tortured screams of agony from devilish code?

Check this out if you're a C++ fan:

If you aren't a C++ fan, then alt.masochism might be a better place,

	Basically I just translated the Gtk API straight into C++ - Gtk
	is already OO so not much change except in syntax. For any Gtk
	widget 'GtkAwidget', I just changed the prefacing Gtk to Gtk_
	There's a testme.cc program that may give you a few clues if
	you're stuck (or just e-mail me).

	- Use gtk's reference counting in constructors and destructors.
	  Otherwise we may destroy a widget that is still in use,
	  just because we created a wrapper for temporary use (when the
	  C++ objects get destroyed, their destructors also destroy
	  the encapsulated widget).
	- Quite a few of the Gtk data structures for various widgets
	  have data members that should be publicly accessable.
	  I made methods to do this in the Gtk_Dialog class just so
	  I could get a decent testme ;-) but this needs to be done
	  for everything else...
	- Anywhere where a GList or GSList is passed in or returned,
	  that is a list of GtkObjects, not Gtk_Objects. Need to do
	- C++ encapsulation of Gdk & Glib might be useful.

If someone else beside me could get to these todo's, it would be
appreciated (especially the last two, which are bigger tasks), since I
don't plan on spending gads of time on it.

Hope this helps, and enjoy!

What's nice about GUI is that you see what you manipulate.
What's bad about GUI is that you can only manipulate what you see.
