A Public Windows Interface Specification Committee has been set up to create and submit a proposal to both US and European standards bodies. The Public Windows Interface – now additionally backed by Amdahl Corp, Oracle Corp, Scottish Enterprise and Australian software house Cybersource Pty Ltd (CI No 2,329), is intended to provide a programming interface for running Microsoft Corp Windows applications, and the Committee includes representatives from Ask Group Inc, Borland International Inc, Santa Cruz Operation Inc and SunSelect. It has already begun seeking industry consensus on the contents of the specification, and expects to submit a first draft abstract specification and C programming language binding to X/Open and the European Computer Manufacturers’ Association by the spring. In December, it distributed a list of Public Windows Interface function calls to Windows developers and users over the Internet and CompuServe, and over the coming months, is to refine and enhance the list based on the input from interested parties.
