Porting Windows Apps To Qnx

Hi:

I’m just getting into QNX (I installed the beta version and the IDE).
I have read the Phab intro documents. What I am looking for is a
series of COMPLETE examples for various “simple” apps such as puzzles,
graphics viewers etc.

I am having difficluty finding books on the subject and would really
like to avoid having to rebuild all my apps from from the ground up
using similar controls. Can anyone suggest an intermediate to advanced
GUI developers guide or web site??

Thanks for your help…

There is a simple Phab plugin for phplay example in
/usr/free/neutrino/multimedia.
Did the ALSA 5 source come with a mixer example? I’d have check.
I know Phab has a lot of flags to learn.
Make sure you know PtEnter(0) PtLeave(0) for any
apps with threading.

There are a few trivial examples on my website; www.parse.com, go to the
“free software” section. There’s an animation viewer (that views a series
of graphical images in sequence), phsysmon (which monitors system
CPU resources over one or more nodes), and phbitmap (which graphically
displays the .bitmap files for various nodes). Full source is included.
While these might not be “typical” examples, they could give you some ideas
about Photon programming. I’ve not used PhAB in generating these examples,
as I wanted to learn the system from the ground up. These examples are
all free; no GPL virus or anything.

Thanks a bunch. At this point, I could use any and all examples to get
a picture of what I’m going to have to trash and what I can keep.

By the way, maybe its me, but was it necessary for Photon to re-invent
yet another set of button styles for minimize, maximize etc. After
coding in Windows, Motif, X11 etc for a number of years, I find it a
little annoying to have to learn what all the new “funny buttons” do.
I guess some of us just have to “ski our own slope”!!
