C++ GUI toolkit

The Fast Light Tool Kit ("FLTK", pronounced "fulltick") is a C++ graphical user interface toolkit. FLTK also includes FLUID, the Fast Light User Interface Designer, which allows you to graphically design applications, widgets, or classes for your GUI. The program was designed to be small and modular enough to be statically linked. It also works well as a shared library. 'fltk' does not use macros, templates, multiple inheritance, or exceptions. It is written directly atop Xlib for maximum speed.
