Summary: Portable Tools Libary
PTLib (Portable Tools Library) is a moderately large class library that has it's
genesis many years ago as PWLib (portable Windows Library), a method to product
applications to run on both Microsoft Windows and Unix systems. It has also been
ported to other systems such as Mac OSX, VxWorks and other embedded systems.

Since then the system has grown to include many classes that assist in writing
complete multi-platform applications. Classes for I/O portability, multi-
threading portability, aid in producing unix daemons and NT services portably
and all sorts of internet protocols were added over the years. So it became a
Portable Tools Library and was renamed to PTLib.

All this over and above basic "container" classes such as arrays, linear lists,
sorted lists (RB Tree) and dictionaries (hash tables) which were all created
before STL was standardized. Future versions of PTLib will see many of these
classes replaced or supplemented by STL.
