    Question Suggestions in regards to GUI

    I've got a program that I've been working on for nearly a year now. It is a console based flash card program, respectively titled Virtual Flash Cards (VFC). I've written the entire program in C++ and everything works (for the most part) to my liking (console-wise). My issue is finding an appropriate GUI language to implement with my program so that the average user can use the program. I'm looking for a language that will work on Windows (but cross-platform would be amazing, yet unnecessary) and a language that won't require the user to download oversized files in order to run my program (i.e. QT). Maybe I could spend some time reading up on Python and Tk and making a module that would link into my program to add the GUI? Any suggestions? I've tried QT but the required libraries are so large I just can't dedicate myself to such a language. Links to languages would be appreciated as well. I'm a intermediate C++ developer but I have no experience with GUI programming.... Thanks in advance!

    rogster001 suggested FLTK recently. Perhaps you could give it a try and volunteer him as your FLTK mentor too
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Thought for the day:
    "Are you sure your sanity chip is fully screwed in sir?" (Kryten)
    FLTK: "The most fun you can have with your clothes on."
