Wing is a library which provides GLib-like API to some Windows API.

The goal of this library is twofold:

  • provide GLib-friendly integration points with Windows specific concepts
  • be a testing ground for API that may be included in GLib/GIO/Gtk+ once they are proven to be generally useful

Currently it already provides api for:

  • Named pipes
  • Windows services
  • A GSource to poll from windows handles
  • Utilities to get the type of operating system and the version.

You can find the git repository in:

As usual if you are interested in this library, patches are very welcomed.

  1. Nice name, with the double meaning.

    The developer cannot develop everything from the scratch. To speed up the development process, developers always use different APIs. Without the API libraries, i cannot even imagine developing a single application. Thanks for sharing Windows API. It will be useful for the .NET developers.
