Wintempla is a Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 template. It integrates with the Visual Studio IDE and allows writing code similar to C#, Java or MFC. Wintempla is a set of classes that encapsulates the Win32 API. The two main files, Win.h and Win.cpp, implement most of these classes. One advantage of Wintempla is that the programmer has the option to use the native Win32 APIs or the Wintempla classes. Additionally, all Wintempla code can be inspected in order to learn some of the dark secrets of Win32.
