    Seattle, WA -- Seattle-based Reliable Software® announces the release
    their Windows Library into the public domain. Reliable Software Windows
    Library, RSWL, is the foundation for their compact, feature rich
    applications including the flagship product, Code Co-op. The use of
    RSWL in both individual and commercial products is free and not
    restricted to public domain projects.

    RSWL provides a thin, easy to understand, object-oriented layer
    encapsulating the Windows API. Its architecture is based on the ideas
    described in the book "C++ in Action, Industrial Strength Programming
    Techniques" (Addison-Wesley 2001). Besides including the encapsulation
    of basic Windows infrastructure, like handles, message loops, Window
    classes and instances, dialog boxes, and Windows controls; it also
    provides sub-libraries for many of the Windows subsystems. There is a
    compact graphics library built around GDI, a file library that includes
    memory-mapped files, a thread library with synchronization primitives,
    a network library including FTP, BITS, SMTP and POP3, and many others.
    More information can be found online at
    http://www.relisoft.com/rswl.html

    Reliable Software uses a novel mechanism for the distribution of RSWL
    sources and updates using a free, e-mail based, version of its own
    distributed version control system, Code Co-op.

    Reliable Software's contributions to the development community go
    beyond Code Co-op. On their website, they provide extensive information
    for developers, including tutorials, discussion forums, and an on-line
    book. The founder of Reliable Software is the author of "C++ in Action"
    and a regular contributor to various trade magazines.

    You have at least two strikes against you here. The Windows API is
    not portable C. C++ is not C and definitely not portable C. The
    result is just another piece of SPAM.

    Of *course* it is spam. That's obvious.

    But classy, artistic, well written spam. That's the ticket.
