Development started during July 2001 with following goals :

  4. Specialize one module of its code for simple and reusable C++ objects that will provide ready to use application skeletons. A quickly way to create a dialog box, SDI or MDI based project.
  5. Provide simple, but original features like creating archives, copying these to a floppy disk or uploading to a server in a few mouse clicks. Make use and promote Open Source command line tools.
