No.

Where possible I tried to make it cross-platform (the GUI is wxWindows), but
I did use a couple of platform specific calls:

- For timing, the clock() call in the windows CRT yields rather innacurate
data, so I had to use a Win32 call.
- For routing data between processes I used pipes, which I created with
Win32 calls.
