    What is SDK?

    I have seen some information regarding SDK but I can not find a decent site that explains what it is. Is it a programming language? Was hoping someone out there might have a simpule explanation on what it is or might know of a website that can explain it to me. Thanks for you suggestions....

    SDK? Source Development Kit?

    Usually it's what developers would use to create addons for particular programs.

    Could this be what you're referring to?

    A software developer's kit (SDK) is a set of programs used by a computer programmer to write application programs. Typically, an SDK includes a visual screen builder, an editor, a compiler, a linker, and sometimes other facilities. The term is used by Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, and a number of other companies.

    tampabay would be correct, software development kit... usually contains the necessary api's for writing software for particular systems. It would include certain header files, some documentation on those headers, and perhaps even some sample code to look at or modify.

    Yep, tampa nailed it.

    There are a ton of SDKs out there. Microsoft has them for just about everything. For example, there is an SDK for WindowsCE. Same goes for other places such as Sun.

    Hope this helps.
