GNUstep back is the core package required by GNUstep gui for drawing.

Current Version: gnustep-back 0.12.1

  • Released: December 30, 2007
  • Licensed: LGPL


GNUstep back translates the abstract drawing functions of gui into calls to one of the graphics libraries usable as drawing backends.

It requires GNUstep make, base and gui for building.


Generally not used directly by application programmers, but used internally by Gui. See Gui and AppKit for GUI Programming.

See backend for infomation on possible backends.
