    PGApplication app;

    PGINIT(app); // Initialize the app using Mainproc args

    MyWindowListener* wl = new MyWindowListener(); // Create window listener for frame
    frame.addWindowListener(wl); // Add window listener to frame

How to run

Download and unzip the tarbal in a directory of your choice
If you run into problems, take a look at the FAQ or mail me.

Gnome/GTK version (on Linux/Unix)

This should be easy :O)
bash$ tar -xvzf PortableGUI-x.xx.tar.gz
bash$ cd pg/demo/helloworld/GTKHelloWorld
bash$ make
bash$ ./helloworld
You can clean up the object files with 'make clean'.
If your compiler complains about carriage returns, you are probably using Windows sources. Take a look here.

Windows version

You can use tar/gzip from CygWin or WinZip to unzip the archive
C:\DOWNLOAD\tar -xvzf PortableGUI-x.xx.tar.gz should do the job Back to PortableGUI
