What is the technical/correct term for the APIs: WinAPI, Cocoa, Linux-API/POSIX?
Would they be called/classified as:
- Standard OS API's
- Core API
- Base API
What term do you use to refer to this group of API's? I dont think its enough to just refer to them as API's as they are more the foundation API of an Operating System - the pedestal/foundation with which all other API's of that OS are built. Whilst WxWidget and WinAPI are both API's; one is essentially a wrapper of the other and one is significantly easier to learn and use.
