Borland OWL ? I don't think so, but it's very possible to be wrong.
Please ask you student to teach me more about this :-) If you are
talking about VDK, a C++ wrapper arround gtk, than yes, that's realy
very similar with Borland's stuff, but with C++ Builder (that's its goal
actually:-). But BCB is based on VCL, the ObjectPascal classes, not on
OWL. The VDK is purely C++.
