How do you write GUIs for C?

I am asking the question much too early, because I am only learning PHP and in the near future I plan to start C. While you can use HTML to write GUIs for PHP, what do you use to write GUIs for C? Specially if the GUIs are to be compatible with Windox and Mac?

You need to use a GUI library, such as Gtk, Qt or WxWindows.

wxWindows, and the Python version wxPython, are great if you want compatabilty on Linux and Windows, as it uses either native Windows widgets or Gtk.
