Japheth, looked at Microwindows/NanoX Win32 API? (Miscellaneous)

nanox, which Georg has been doing a bit with, has 2 APIs.
One is X-like, and that's what he's been using; the other was supposed to be Win32-like. They recommended the Win32 API as more complete, and I know it supports multiple windows...
nanox can be compiled as a lib and should run ~100kb in 32bit mode.
I'm wondering about using it as an HX DLL to provide the GUI layer. Should be possible, wonder how practical.

Nano-X is based on an older, small Xlib compatible library. This was extended with a Win32 API compatible interface.

It would be possible to compile this Win32 API part, called Microwindows, with MinGW as a DLL to be used with HX. I had started to port nano-X to MinGW without having HX in mind using an Allegro based video driver.

Changed to work on a different project for now.

You are welcome to continue and write such a DLL for HX.

Georg
