II. Building a Gnome Application
With the basic concepts out of the way, you're ready to
start building a full-scale Gnome application. This
part of the book walks you through the creation of a
generic application skeleton: a source tree using automake and autoconf, argument parsing, session
management, internationalization, the main window,
dialogs, toolbars, and menubars. Many examples in Part
2 come from a simple application called "GnomeHello";
the source code for this application is included in the
back of the book.
Of course the "meat" of the application is up to you;
but in Part 3 of the book we'll cover a range of
library features you can use to develop it.
