    I have been working into Robotics and automation. Recently while
working on some project i came across ROS. I found it very helpful
tool. But some of my sensors and devices come only with Windows
driver. I found that ROS windows is still experimental.
    I just wanted to know, how this ROS is implemented in Linux. I
could see ros::init, etc. so on many APIs. Where can i get the source
code for them ? I could find ros.h, init.h but can`t find the
respective C or C++ file.

I have been working on writing OS Agnostic applications. So i was like
if ROS is written in Posix then i already have a way to directly run
it on windows with little effort. This way i would be very happy to
utilize this tool. Once done, same can be used by other people who are
waiting for ROS windows.

Can anyone please help me on the same. So that we can have a great
solution for ROS Windows as well.

Best Regards,
