In what programming language was Winbox made?

I love the look and the feel of this Winbox GUI.

Is it made of Qt and C++ ?

"GCC: (GNU) 4.8.2" shows up multiple times in binary, so I guess GCC compiled it

Indeed, there are many "GCC: (GNU) 4.8.2" series in the code..
Thank you!

I don't think Qt is the GUI toolkit though... Doesn't look exactly like it.

Wait, you're telling me that it was compiled with GCC, yet there is no native Linux version available?! Seems kind of hard to fathom...

I'm not saying it's this case (I don't know), but MinGW has GCC too, so it's no indication if they can easily make Linux version or not.

Yes, I know MinGW has GCC, but in my experience usually people use MinGW to compile something for Windows that was originally developed on Linux, or at least with a Linux-like development workflow. Thus it probably wouldn't be too hard to compile it for Linux if you have already compiled it with MinGW on Windows. Of course, I'm sure there are exceptions. Also, I'm not complaining, as I'm fine running Winbox with Wine. I just was surprised that it was built with GCC but is Windows-only. I think that is very unusual.

By the way, I looked at the contents of a binary I have compiled with MinGW, and it contains very similar GCC strings to winbox.exe.

MT Team, I would really like to see a Linux version of Winbox...

Hey,

I really don't know exactly but I think python is the language Winbox made.
Thanks!
