Re: [seul-edu] Comprehensive Student Management System
Yes, I agree that working to build a framework for a cross-platfrom app
is a good thing. What I meant to say, and I realize now that I didn't, was
that it will considerably slow things down. I have been looking carefully
through some of the abiword project's source to see how they do it.
It will also limit us to using C++ for most iif not all of the code.
A lot of this is thinking out loud and I am glad to share my thoughts on this.
I will be the first to admit that I am not likely to be the one working on
a Windows or Mac client for this. I am not familiar with writing software
for either of these platfroms. My experience is mostly with GTK+/GNOME
as that is what I have written and read the most of.
What do you guys think?
