It''s a library that wraps platform specific windowing and input code. You can use it if you don''t want to write platform specific windowing and input code

Well, that''s about it. It''s a pretty basic libraray. On one hand, it doesn''t require much to get it working. On the other hand, it doesn''t give you much either. You get a window (or more of you want) and can receive inputs. Perfect for simple testbeds.
