cross platform C or C++ API for linux and Win32

Is there an open source cross platform C or C++ API for linux and Win32?
I want to write a portable program for both linux and Win32.
How do multi-platform programs do that?
e.g. or mozilla, how do they design their source code so that it will run on multi-platform?
