I was thinking about creating a simple text editor in C++. I did some research on avaliable graphical libraries and ended up with SDL.
SDL is quite simple, yet powerful library and I already have some experience with it - simple game.
However, that's what raises my doubt. Whether it is a good choice for something like text editor. It is used mostly for games and other multimedia applications and I will be creating application for editing text files.
I don't want to use any huge widget framework like QT and on the other side I would like to keep it on a bit higher level than plain OpenGL (however, if it's the right choice, I would use it).
So my question is: Can be SDL or similiar libraries, which are mostly used for creating games used for writing a graphical text editor?
are you aware of any demos for SDL and GUI apps?
I have written Notepad clones in MFC, Win API, Delphi, C++Builder, C++ / CLR, C#, VB.NET - though normally without printing - and the easiest was .NET. Also Delphi and C++Builder are quite easy and high level, MFC is a bit more comlicated and Win API is the most difficult.
