Key points

  • Portability is a term used to describe code that can be transferred between platforms, such as a program written in a language that can be compiled for both Apple Mac OS-based computers and Microsoft Windows-based computers.
  • Software can be made to be portable if it only uses module libraries that are available of multiple platforms - an example of this would be the use of OpenGL for 3D graphics, because OpenGL is available of a variety of platforms.
