has anyone ever heard of a library called owl.lib,i need it for a program but i can't seem to find it?

if someone could send it to me i would appreciate it


RE: owl.lib


    If I remember right, the owl files were Borland's attempt to make writing Window programs easier. Maybe someone else can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe these were ported to Win32 but were for Windows 3.1. In order words, these were 16 bit programs that used owl. I think OWL stood for Object Windowing Library. Some of the concepts used in OWL were used in VCL.

    Where to find them is a difficult question. I don't think they gained widespread acceptace. You may see if they are in the "Anitque Software" site at Inprise. If they are not there, then Borland/Inprise may still own the copyrights to them.
