Available C++ Libraries FAQ

Introduction

About the list

Here is the latest draft of the "Available C++ libraries FAQ".

This list is not exhaustive. If you are looking for a particular library, and you don't find it here, try an ordinary Web search engine (e.g. Google). If you do find a suitable library, why not use the submission form to add it to this list for the next person?

Due to the increasing size of this list, and problems with updating the automatic poster at rtfm.mit.edu, the full list is now only available on the Web (at www.trumphurst.com/cpplibs/).

Marshall Cline's C++ FAQ is available on his Web page.

I have not included a credits list, because it would be nearly as large as the rest of the file! Many thanks to all those who contributed, and I hope you won't be offended that I haven't mentioned you.

Please send comments, criticisms, additions and amendments to me using the forms on the Web site. Please DO NOT mail me with requests for assistance in finding files mentioned in the list. I am unable to provide such a service. Definite information such as "file xyz is no longer at site xxx" IS welcome - even better if you can tell me an alternative site where it can be found. If you are new to the Internet, I recommend the newsgroups "news.announce.newusers" and "news.answers" for starters.

Dos and don'ts - (Mostly don'ts)

  • Do not send me mail asking for help with your programming - unless you are willing to pay my normal daily rate for consultancy. Free advice is available from Usenet newsgroups like comp.lang.c++.
  • Do not ask me if there is a library to do a particular task. All the libraries I know about are in this list.
  • I do not actually have copies of the libraries in the list. I do not evaluate the libraries in the list, I just collect together information sent in by the authors or others. So it's no use asking me how good a particular library is, or, indeed, anything about them that isn't already in the list.
  • If you want me to include your library in the list, send in a submission. Do not just send in a URL, and expect me to connect to the Internet, download your Web page(s) and summarise them. That's your job.

Adding or amending entries

Sending in a new entry

If your library isn't mentioned, or you wish to update your entry in this list, feel free to submit an entry via the Web form. Please note that entries will be restricted to a couple of paragraphs - if you send me a 100k text file giving minute details, I will have to summarise it. Or I might just ignore it, if I'm busy. It is much easier for me if you just send me an entry which is the right size to start with.

Please try to format your entry in the same way as the entries already in this list. If you wish, you may include HTML tags in your Long description text, which will make it through to the WWW version of this document. Please do not use heading levels 1-3, and please do not include any hot links in the body of the text - all links should occur at the end of the text.

NOTE TO VENDORS

This FAQ contains details of both free and commercial libraries. Vendors who have sent me details of their libraries for inclusion in the FAQ have been pleasantly surprised by the level of interest generated. Please remember, I only allow 2 or 3 paragraphs describing the product, and no advertising hype !

ActiveMQ-CPP - a JMS-like API for C++ for interfacing with Message Brokers

CMS (stands for C++ Messaging Service) is a JMS-like API for C++ for interfacing with Message Brokers such as Apache ActiveMQ. ActiveMQ-CPP is a client only library, a message broker such as Apache ActiveMQ is still needed for your clients to communicate.

This implementation of CMS is called ActiveMQ-CPP, which has an architecture that allows for pluggable transports and wire formats. The OpenWire and Stomp protocols are supported, both over TCP and SSL and a Failover Transport for more reliable client operation. In addition to CMS, ActiveMQ-CPP also provides a robust set of classes that support platform independent constructs such as threading, I/O, sockets, etc.

ActiveMQ-CPP is released under the Apache 2.0 License

ADAPTIVE Communication Environment (ACE) - C++ IPC wrappers

This release contains contains the source code, documentation, and example test drivers for a number of C++ wrapper libraries and higher- level distributed application frameworks developed as part of the ADAPTIVE project at the University of Calfornia, Irvine.

The C++ wrappers encapsulate many of the user-level BSD and System V Release 4 IPC facilities such as sockets, TLI, select and poll, named pipes and STREAM pipes, the mmap family of memory-mapped file commands, System V IPC (i.e., shared memory, semaphores, message queues), and explicit dynamic linking (e.g., dlopen/dlsym/dlclose) using type-secure, object-oriented interfaces.

The higher-level distributed application frameworks integrate and enhance the lower-level C++ wrappers to support the configuration of concurrent network daemons composed of monolithic and/or stackable services

A relatively complete set of documentation and extensive examples are included in the release. A mailing list is available for discussing bug fixes, enhancements, and porting issues regarding ACE. Please send mail to ace-users-request@ics.uci.edu if you'd like to become part of the mailing list.

Amulet - User Interface Development Environment

AMULET is a user interface development environment in C++. Code written using Amulet will work with little or no changes on all platforms.

More than just another free "virtual toolkit," Amulet includes many features specifically designed to make the creation of highly-interactive, graphical, direct manipulation user interfaces significantly easier. Based on a proven earlier system, called Garnet, that was in wide use in the Lisp community, Amulet adds a number of important innovations and refinements.

Important features of Amulet include:

  • a dynamic, prototype-instance object system that makes prototyping easier
  • automatic constraint solving integrated with the object system
  • a "structured-graphics" model (also called a "display list") that handles automatic refresh of objects when the change
  • a high-level input model that makes it easy to add behaviors to objects and also supports undo and help for operations
  • a full set of flexible widgets implemented using the Amulet intrinsics, so you can easily experiment with your own widgets; and high-level interactive debugging tools. Widgets include:buttons, check boxes, radio buttons, menus, menu bars (pull-down menus), scroll bars, scrolling windows, and text input fields.
Amulet comes with complete documentation including a tutorial.

APE - Portable C++ threading and sockets framework

APE is the "APE Portable Environment" and class libraries for writing portable threaded servers in C++, under UNIX (pthread) and Win32 API's. APE provides portable class abstraction for threads and sockets, and is used as a base framework for other projects. The goal of APE is to make writing threaded servers in C++ both practical and convenient, even for small and simple projects, and hence simplicity and low runtime overhead are design goals.

The 1.0.0 release of APE is available at ftp://ftp.voxilla.org/pub/ape with both source and pre-built binary packages. APE has been used not only in server applications, but also in conjunction with client class frameworks, such as QT/KDE, to offer threading and socket services. APE is licensed under the GPL with additional priviledges as annoted in the source under terms similar to Guile.

As of March 14th, 2000, the APE project was merged with the Common C++ project to form the newly introduced Common C++ portable application framework.

Arabica - SAX2 implementation

SAX is an event-based XML processing API. Arabica is a full SAX2 implementation, including the optional interfaces and helper classes. It provides uniform SAX2 wrappers for the Expat parser, Xerces, Libxml2 and, on Windows, for the Microsoft XML parser.

The DOM is a platform- and language-neutral interface which models an XML document as a tree of nodes, defined by the W3C. Arabica implements the DOM Level 2 Core on top of the SAX layer.

XPath is a language for addressing parts of an XML document. Arabica implements XPath 1.0 over its DOM implementation.

XSLT is a language for transforming XML documents into other XML documents. Arabica builds XSLT over its XPath engine.

Arabica is written in Standard C++ and should be portable to most platforms. It is parameterised on string type. Out of the box, it can provide UTF-8 encoded std::strings or UTF-16 encoded std::wstrings, but can easily be customised for arbitrary string types.

Arjuna - For writing fault-tolerant (distributed) applications

Arjuna provides a set of tools (C++ classes and libraries) for writing fault-tolerant distributed applications using persistent objects, atomic actions, and replication. Included in the system is a C++ stub generator (and associated RPC mechanism) which takes a C++ class definition for an object and generates client and server stub code. Using these stub classes occurs in a relatively transparent manner: the differences between a local and distributed application are typically only a single line.

The system has been ported to a wide range of architectures and C++ compilers, both by the authors and other users, and has been in use for several years.

A comprehensive manual is available with the distribution.

Armadillo - Armadillo linear algebra (matrix) library

The Armadillo C++ Library aims to provide an efficient base for linear algebra operations (matrix and vector maths), while at the same time having a straightforward and easy to use interface. To keep it relatively lean, it does not aim to provide a boilerplate of functionality, such as GNU Octave. Its intended target audience is scientists and engineers. A delayed evaluation approach is employed (during compile time) in order to combine several operations into one and reduce (or eliminate) the need for temporaries. Where applicable, the order of operations is optimised. Delayed evaluation and optimisation are achieved through recursive templates and template meta-programming.

BDE - Basic Development Environment - a set of foundational C++ libraries used at Bloo

What is BDE?

BDE (BDE Development Environment) is a set of C++ software libraries as well as development tools and methodology. Originally developed at Bloomberg L.P., BDE is intended to form the foundation for large scale C++ software products.

BSL (BDE Standard Library), the lowest level BDE library, provides implementations for portions of the C++ standard library, particularly the container types, as well as a suite of system utilities, meta-functions, and algorithms needed to build such containers.

BDL (BDE Development Library), the second BDE library currently provides concrete allocator implementations. This library is under active development and will eventually contain a collection of tools appropriate for a low-level library and application development.

Goals and Benefits of BDE

BDE aims to provide libraries that meet superior standards in terms of their design, documentation, and testing. Every component (i.e., .h/.cpp file pair) provides thorough component-, class-, and method-level documentation, including a compilable example for using that type. Every component also has a thorough test-driver that tests every public method of that component through a comprehensive range of input (see bslstl_map.t.cpp).

These libraries, along with the tools and methodology that accompany them, are meant to enable developers to create their own C++ software that meets similar standards of quality.

The BDE Standard Library (BSL)

BSL provides a finely factored collection of modules (or components) that form the foundation for cross-platform component-based development. The library culminates in the implementation of several standard containers that take advantage of the features of the rest of BSL. Some of the highlights of BSL include:

  • Support for runtime polymorphic memory allocators
    • Provides more efficient application-specific memory-allocation behavior.
    • Provides facilities for testing memory allocation.
    • (see bslma)
  • Enhanced type trait support and trait-aware container facilities
    • Provides for efficient move semantics (similar to to C++11 move-semantics)
    • (see bslmf)
  • Support for defensive programming through a configurable assert facility
    • Support for testing those defensive checks ("negative testing")
    • (see bsls_assert and bsls_asserttest)
  • A modular system for defining hash functions
    • Based on C++ ISO Proposal N3980
    • Enhances the C++ standard defined mechanism for defining hash functions
    • See bslh
  • A facility for testing generic container instantiations with a range of troublesome types
    • (see bsltf)
  • Implementations of basic atomic operations with flexible memory semantics
    • (see bsls_atomic)

The BDE Development Library (BDL)

BDL is under active development, and will eventually contain a wide range of facilities needed for common development tasks. For example, date and time types, specialized containers, thread pools, event schedulers, and file system utilities. The current highlights of BDL include:

  • Value types and utilities for manipulating dates and times.
    • Of particular note bdlt::Date, bdlt::Datetime, bdlt::CurrentTime
    • See bdlt
  • Additional concrete implementations of the allocator interface defined in BSL
    • (see bdlma)
  • Value types and utilities that support decimal floating point arithmetic (IEEE754-2008) (see bdldfp and bdldfp_decimal)
    • These types are is useful where exact representations of decimal fractions are required (e.g., financial transactions).

Better Enums - Reflective enums (enum to string, iteration) with constexpr support

Better Enums is a single header file that makes your compiler generate reflective enums. These support conversion to and from string, iteration, stream operators, and have other helpful properties.

Typically, maintenance effort or external tools are required to keep enum definitions synchronized with associated string tables and other "metadata." Better Enums eliminates these needs. In addition, the output of Better Enums can be further used in your own template metaprograms and constexpr functions.

Better Enums has no dependencies beyond the standard library. It requires either C++98 with the __VA_ARGS__ extension (long supported by most major compilers), or C++11. The library is tested automatically on many versions of Clang, GCC, and MSVC, optimized for compilation speed, and thoroughly documented.

Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries. Boost emphasizes libraries that work well with the C++ Standard Library. Boost libraries are intended to be widely useful, and usable across a broad spectrum of applications. The Boost license encourages both commercial and non-commercial use. Boost aims to establish "existing practice" and provide reference implementations so that Boost libraries are suitable for eventual standardization. Ten Boost libraries are already included in the C++ Standards Committee's Library Technical Report (TR1) and will be in the new C++0x Standard now being finalized. C++0x will also include several more Boost libraries in addition to those from TR1. More Boost libraries are proposed for TR2. Boost works on almost any modern operating system, including UNIX and Windows variants. Follow the Getting Started Guide to download and install Boost. Popular Linux and Unix distributions such as Fedora, Debian, and NetBSD include pre-built Boost packages. Boost may also already be available on your organization's internal web server.

BRL10 - Binary Relations Library for C/C++

Binary relations are more directly based on semantic concepts rather than on recordlike structures as traditional (relational, hierarchies, networks, object-oriented) models are.

Binary Relations tend to be more functionally complete in their information processing capability, and more precise in their semantic modelling.

The Binary Relations Approach was implemented in Binary Relations Library for C/C++. BRL is not a full featured DBMS. It does not support all ideas of the Binary Relations Approach. BRL is however a small, fast and reliable engine.

BRL provides basic tools for using binary relations in C and C++ programs.

C++ Sockets Library - Unix / Windows Socket programming made easy

When making this library, there were a few things I wanted to achieve. I did not want to end up with C++ code that had to be used in the same way as the berkeley socket C API are being used ( connect/bind/accept - check result, write - check result, read - check result, etc, etc ). Another thing was the ability to manage multiple sockets in the same thread; the library should be singlethreaded - but not limited to one thread. So.. I never wanted to manage a fd_set for a select() call ever again, no more writing code for accepting a connection - this has already been done again and again in every single networking project ever made.

One decision made early on was to treat one socket as one object. And so was the Socket class born. The socket class, by itself, has all the functions needed for address translation (hostname to ip, ip to hostname etc). It owns the file descriptor / SOCKET handle. But it can't do anything. Code for actually doing something with the socket is implemented in other, Socket derived classes.

C/C++ cyclic logs - Record log information

Cyclic logs provide a platform-independent way for a server to record stdout and stderr such that the most recent information can be retained in a logfile without such logfiles growing in size such that they might fill the disk up. A cyclic log has a fixed size upon creation and a structure that allows older data to be overwritten on the arrival of new data to be logged.

It consists of a C++ library, a C library, a set of commands and a user manual.

It is released under the GPL license.

CalcPlus - Interpreter of procedural language

The CalcPlus library is the C++ class library which provides an ability to use your own programming language built into C++ project. Any algorithm or any constant needed by application can be carried out into the special file, when process comes to the key point, it calls function or procedure stored in the text file. Interpreter runs the function and process returns back to C++ code. Library contains the interpreter which understands simple nameless procedural language. Bi-directional communication between C++ and the code for interpreter available.

Version of the language that comes with the library allows to use functions, procedures, blocks, preprocessor, global and local variables and constants, if/for/while statements. Each variable can have value of type: nil, bool, long, float, string, date. Type definitions and arrays are allowed. Functions and procedures may be recursive. New functions written in C++ may be easily added to the language. Syntax of the language can be modified by changing YACC rules. Interpreter is fast enough and may be helpful for many tasks.

Platform independent, YACC required.

CDBFile - C++ library to handle dBASE III files

CDBFile is a C++ object-oriented package for programmers who need to manipulate dBASE III files in their programs. It enables you to perform many operations on an existing DBF file: reading/writing to it, accessing its values, sorting the records, adding/deleting records, etc. It comes with full text and postscript documentation, and commented source code. A demonstration program, TestDBF, shows the various possibilities of the CDBFile library, and its source file, testdbf.cpp, demonstrates how to implement CDBFile within a program. CDBFile was designed to be as portable as possible: you should be able to compile it under "as is" any DOS/Windows C++ compiler; porting it to Un*x/Linux should also require little effort.

Since CDBFile is distributed under the GNU Public License for libraries, I hope that programmers will like it and suggest or implement enhance- ments and additional features to that piece of software.

CMATH - Complex-number math library for Borland C/C++

CMATH is a comprehensive library for complex-number arithmetics and mathematics. In contrast to C++-written complex class libraries, this true Assembler implementation ensures superior computational efficiency, mathematical accuracy and safety. All functions exist in two alternative forms:
  1. a C++ form with overloaded function names, like sin, exp, operator /;
  2. a plain-C form with data-type specific function names, like cf_sin, cd_exp, ce_div, where the prefix determines the level of accuracy (complex float, double, or extended).

Changes: The necessary adjustments have been made for CMATH to work with the new version 4 of BCBuilder, while maintaining compatibility with the older BC++ versions. Slight improvements with respect to speed and accuracy have also been made for the forward and inverse trigonometric functions.

Common C++ - A GNU Portable Application Framework

Common C++ is a C++ framework offering portable support for threading, sockets, file access, deamons, persistance, and system services, initially started by David Sugar and Daniel Silverstone. Common C++ is a GNU package and is licensed to the terms of the GNU GPL with specific privileges similar to Guile. Common C++ offers support and portable classes for threading and sockets for both UNIX (Posix systems with "pthread" support) and the Windows "Win32" API. Common C++ uses extensive autoconf macro sets for automatic detection of various levels of "pthread compliance" in your target platform and attempts to adjust itself appropriately. Common C++ has been tested to date with GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, and DEC Tru64 Unix. HP/UX has also been tried and found not to be successfully supported at this time.

While Common C++ is not directly related to GNU portable threading (GNU Pth), it should work with the Pth "pthread emulation" library at present. Common C++ will become usable as a class framework for GNU Pth directly in future releases.

The primary goal of Common C++ is to promote a very low overhead abstract C++ interface to common system services. Consistent with this goal, and the desire for broad portability with wide compiler support, specific aspects and practices in C++ programming were selected when writing code in this package, and other practices were discarded that seemed to detract from this goal.

Cvmath.cc - An include file to make complex math look like regular math.

The file uses a lot of operator overloading, so that if x=a+ib and y=c+id, the code for multiplying the two together looks like z = x*y; Also, the file includes nrutil from Numerical Recipes, and adds the complex versions for vectors and matrices.

Database Template Library Programmer's Guide - The DTL makes ODBC recordsets look just like an STL container.

The goal of this library is to make ODBC recordsets look just like an STL container. What is more, we do this portably so the abstraction can run on multiple platforms and C++ compilers. As a user, you can move through our containers using standard STL iterators; and if you insert(), erase() or replace() records in our containers changes can be automatically migrated to the database for you. The library's compliance with the STL iterator and container standards means you can plug our abstractions into a wide variety of STL algorithms for data storage, searching and manipulation. In addition, the C++ reflection mechanism used by our library to bind to database tables allows us to add generic indexing and lookup properties to our containers with no special code required from the end-user. Because our code takes full advantage of the template mechanism, our library adds minimal overhead compared with using raw ODBC calls to access a database.

dbstreams - database interface library modelled on std::iostreams

dbstreams is C++ class library modelled on std::iostreams in the C++ standard library. It treats a database connection as a source or sink for data. The basic operations are the same as for iostreams: open, close, read, and write (but not seek). State information similarly borrows from std::ios: a stream has a state word with enumerated values: goodbit, badbit, failbit, eofbit. And the notation is largely the same, with operator<< and operator>> serving the purpose of sending data to and reading data from the database. In general, the design mimics iostreams, permitting the same kind of terse, economical code.

Developer - Smart Pointers

smart_ptr is a smart pointer policy class that can use different ownership logic and semantic polices, which allows the developer to get the best performance and/or interface for a particular requirement.

The smart_ptr class can be used with STL containers to create containers of smart pointers, moreover it can be used to create a container of abstract based objects via smart_ptr. In general, smart_ptr is faster than boost::shared_ptr. When used with STL containers, the smart pointer is faster than the boost pointer containers, and more generic.

DOSTmUit - DOS Text Mode User Interface Toolkit

Enables C++ programmers to add a CUA-compliant user interface to their DOS programs without getting involved in screen coordinates and other messy details. The programmer merely states which interface objects are required, and how they are to be placed on the screen in relation to each other. Those familiar with the ET++ toolkit for the X windows system under Unix will get the general idea.

Includes a class documentation facility (DocClass) which will generate a large text file from the source code giving details of every class, structure, enum and extern in the toolkit. This program will also work on your own C++ source code. Source is provided.

dxflib - dxflib is an open source C++ library mainly for parsing DXF files.

dxflib is a C++ library for reading and writing DXF files. When reading DXF files, dxflib parses the file and calls functions that you define in your own C++ class for adding entities, layers, ...

Please note that dxflib does not store any entities or other information for you. It only passes the supported entities and other objects found in the DXF file to your C++ class.

Using dxflib to read DXF files doesn't require any knowlege of the DXF format. However, it's still an advantage to know the basics about entities, attributes, layers and blocks. To write DXF files with dxflib you definitely need an idea of how a DXF file is organized.

dxflib does not depend on any exotic other libraries, just the standard C / C++ libraries.

DynaMix - A New Take on Polymorphism in C++

DynaMix [ˈdainəˌmiks] (Dynamic Mixins) is a library that allows composition and modification of polymorphic types at run time.

The library is a means to create a project's architecture rather than achieve its purpose. It focuses on maximum performance and minimal memory overhead.

DynaMix is great for the software architecture of systems with very complex objects including, but not limited to:

  • Games (especially role-playing ones or strategies)
  • CAD systems
  • Enterprise systems
  • UI libraries

The library uses the type dynamix::object as a placeholder, whose instances can be extended with existing classes (mixins), thus providing a particular instance with the functionality of all those types. Accessing the newly formed type's interface is made through messages – stand-alone functions generated by the library, which can be thought of as methods.

Here is a small example of what your code may look like if you use the library:

    // assuming my_objects.get_ally(0); is a way to get an ally to the
    // main character in a game

    dynamix::object& obj = my_objects.get_ally(0);

    // now let's make the object think some positive thoughts about the
    // main character

    think(obj); // C++ doesn't allow us to have obj.think()
                // DynaMix's messages are standalone functions

    // type composition
    dynamix::mutate(obj)
        .add();

    // object can now respond to fly()

    fly(obj); // ...instead of obj.fly()

    // type mutation
    dynamix::mutate(obj)
        .remove()
        .add();

    think(obj); // the same object now thinks negative thoughts about the main
                // character, since it's no longer an ally, but an enemy

Key features of the library:

  • Compose types from mixins at run time
  • Physically separate interface and implementation
  • Fast polymorphic calls – comparable to std::function
  • No external dependencies other than the standard library
  • Non-intrusive mixins don't need to have a common parent or any special code inside
  • Mutate "live" objects by changing their composition at run time
  • Have multicast messages, which are handled by many mixins within an object
  • Possibility to have custom allocators to finely tune the memory and aim for cache-locality for critical parts of the code
  • Ability to have dynamic libraries that can enrich or modify objects, without modifying, or even rebuilding, the executable
  • Thread safe message calls – as thread safe as the underlying methods.

eigen - C++ template library for linear algebra: vectors, matrices & related algorithms

Eigen is a C++ template library for linear algebra: vectors, matrices, and related algorithms. It is:
  • Versatile. (See modules and tutorial). Eigen handles, without code duplication, and in a completely integrated way:
    • both fixed-size and dynamic-size matrices and vectors.
    • both dense and sparse (the latter is still experimental) matrices and vectors.
    • both plain matrices/vectors and abstract expressions.
    • both column-major (the default) and row-major matrix storage.
    • both basic matrix/vector manipulation and many more advanced,
    • specialized modules providing algorithms for linear algebra, geometry, quaternions, or advanced array manipulation. various numeric types out of the box, including std::complex numbers, while being easy to extend to custom numeric types.
  • Fast. (See benchmark).
    • Expression templates allow to intelligently remove temporaries and enable lazy evaluation, when that is appropriate -- Eigen takes care of this automatically and handles aliasing too in most cases.
    • Explicit vectorization is performed for the SSE (2 and later) and AltiVec instruction sets, with graceful fallback to non-vectorized code. Expression templates allow to perform these optimizations globally for whole expressions.
    • With fixed-size objects, dynamic memory allocation is avoided, and the loops are unrolled when that makes sense.
    • For large matrices, special attention is paid to cache-friendliness.
  • Elegant. (See API showcase). The API is extremely clean and expressive, thanks to expression templates. Implementing an algorithm on top of Eigen feels like just copying pseudocode. You can use complex expressions and still rely on Eigen to produce optimized code: there is no need for you to manually decompose expressions into small steps.
  • Compiler-friendy. Eigen has very reasonable compilation times at least with GCC, compared to other C++ libraries based on expression templates and heavy metaprogramming. Eigen is also standard C++ and supports various compilers.

EO - Evolutionary computation library

EO (Evolvable|Evolutionary objects) is a C++ toolbox for evolutionary computation which defines interfaces for many classes of algorithms used in evolutionary computation, and, at the same time, provides some examples that use those interfaces. The client/user can include those objects in his or her programs, or create their own. If new objects are created, the GeNeura team commit themselves to test them, and make them available to the Evolutionary Computation community. In this way, no changes have to be made to the library design or to a program that implements an EC algorithm: just new classes added. Our intention would be that, in the future, somebody implementing an EC algorithm would say "I am using EO, plus a class that hs been made publicly available", improving repeatability of EC results and easing its availability.

It contains classes for any kind of evolutionary computation you might come up to, except maybe genetic programming. Here are its features

  • Chromosomes: Can be defined by the user; binary, floating point and string are provided. All algorithms defined work on all kind of chromosomes.
  • Genetic operators: Can be defined by the user. Several floating point, bitstring, and generic operators are defined, like mutation, crossover, and things like that.
  • Selection/elimination procedure: Can be defined by the user. Steady-State and rank-based are provided.
  • Reproduction procedure: Can be user defined (I'll skip that from now on, but everything can be user-defined). Random and rank-based are provided.
  • Termination conditions: (user-definable) fitness and generation-based.
  • Algorithms: Easy Ga, SimpleGA and simulated annealing with user-definable cooling schedule.
  • Some utilities: command-line parsing, random-number generations
  • Examples: examples that test all features, plus genetic mastermind.
  • User interface: an example that uses gtk is provided
  • Documentation in html.

Fast Light Toolkit - GNU LGPL GUI toolkit for X11 and Windows

FLTK (pronounced "fulltick") is a LGPL C++ graphical user interface toolkit for X (UNIX&reg;), OpenGL, and WIN32 (Microsoft&reg; Windows&reg; NT 4.0, 95, or 98). It is currently maintained by a small group of developers across the world with a central repository in the US.

FLTK was originally created to build in-house applications at Digital Domain for image processing and 3D graphics. The original author, Bill Spitzak, received permission from Digital Domain to release it to the public domain in the hopes that it could be used to make better, faster, and nicer-looking UNIX programs. Digital Domain has since withdrawn support for FLTK, but Bill is still able to work o!n it from time to time. FLTK was designed to be small and modular enough to be statically linked. FLTK also works fine as a shared library and has started being included on Linux distributions.

Here are some of the core features unique to FLTK:

  • sizeof(Fl_Widget) == 40 to 48
  • The "core" (the "hello" program compiled & linked with a static FLTK library using gcc on a 486 and then stripped) is 110k.
  • The FLUID program (which includes every widget) is 372k.
  • Does not use macros, templates, multiple inheritance, or exceptions.
  • Written directly atop Xlib (or the WIN32 API) for maximum speed, and carefully optimized for code size and performance.
  • Precise low-level compatibility between the X and Windows version (only about 10% of the code is different).
  • Interactive user interface builder program. Output is human-readable and editable C++ source code.
  • Support for overlay hardware (emulation if none and under Windows)
  • Very small & fast portable 2-D drawing library to hide Xlib and WIN32
  • OpenGL/Mesa drawing area widget
  • Support for OpenGL overlay hardware on both X and Windows. Emulation if none.
  • Text input fields with Emacs key bindings, cut & paste, and foreign letter compose!
  • Compatability header file for the GLUT library
  • Compatability header file for the XForms library

FastFormat - 100% type-safe, infinitely extensible, very high performance C++ format library

FastFormat is an open source C++ formatting library, whose design parameters are 100% type-safety, efficiency, and flexibility. It is simple to use, highly-portable (platform and compiler-independent), and is infinitely extensible.

FastFormat supports output/formatting of statements of arbitrary complexity, consisting of heterogeneous types. It provides two APIs:

  • Format: provides replacement-based formatting, like Streams (printf()-family), Boost.Format()
  • Write: provides concatenation-based formatting, like IOStreams

FastFormat writes to output "sinks", which can be of arbitrary type. It implicitly supports any type that is structurally conformant with the standard library's string, and the library includes adaptors to allow writing to:

  • std::ostream
  • FILE*
  • STLSoft's auto_buffer
  • C-style string buffers and character buffers
  • ACE's ACE_String
  • ATL's CComBSTR
  • MFC's CString
  • std::stringstream
  • speech (currently Windows-only)
  • Windows' OutputDebugString()
  • Windows' MessageBox()
Adaptation to a new type requires the definition of a single function.

FastFormat is robust. Both APIs are 100% type-safe - something no other C/C++ widely-used formatting library can claim - and with the Write API it is impossible to compile defective code.

FastFormat is fast. The processing of each statement involves at most one memory allocation to hold the entire statement, and each statement element is measured and copied exactly once. As a consequence, the library is on a par with (the type-unsafe) C's Streams (printf()-family) of functions, faster than C++'s IOStreams (by 2-10x) and Loki.SafeFormat (by 1-5x), and considerably faster than Boost.Format (by 5-17x).

FastFormat supports I18N/L10N by using numbered arguments, enabling reordering of arguments by exchanging format strings. The library comes with a number of resource bundles, classes whose instances can load sets of localised resource strings for use as format strings.

FastFormat does not contain any compiler-specific or platform-specific constructs. It supports UNIX (including Linux and Mac OS-X), and Windows, and should work with any operating system. It is known to be compatible with Comeau (4.3.3+), GCC (3.4+), Intel (8+), Metrowerks (8+), Microsoft Visual C++ (6.0+), and should work with any reasonably modern C++ compiler.

FastFormat is completely free and includes source released under a BSD-style license. Commercial customisations and related consultancy are provided by Synesis Software.

FastFormat features in a series of articles in ACCU's peer-reviewed Overload magazine:

  • An Introduction to FastFormat, part 1: The State of the Art, Matthew Wilson, Overload #89, February 2009
  • An Introduction to FastFormat, part 2: Custom Argument and Sink Types, Matthew Wilson, Overload #90, April 2009
  • An Introduction to FastFormat, part 3: Solving Real Problems, Quickly, Matthew Wilson, Overload #91, June 2009

Examples:

  • Emulate Streams' ability to specify widths:

      printf("[%-10d, %10d]\n", 123, -456);

      fastformat::fmtln(std::cout, "[{0,10,,<}, {1,10}]", 123, -456);

    Both produce the output:

      [123       ,       -456]

  • Handle heterogeneous types:

      struct connection_t
      {
        std::string     connectionId;
        struct in_addr  remoteAddress;
        struct in_addr  localAddress;
        unsigned short  port;
        unsigned long   numBytesTransferred;
        struct tm       completionTime;
      };

      void log_connection(connection_t const& conn)
      {
        fastformat::fmtln(
          std::cout
        , "{0} {5} {1} {2} {3} {4}"
        , conn.connectionId
        , conn.remoteAddress
        , conn.localAddress
        , conn.port
        , conn.numBytesTransferred
        , conn.completionTime
      );
      }


    Produces output like:

      channel-1 May 03 03:50:41 2009 192.168.160.247 127.0.0.1 5651 102401

  • Emulate Boost.Format's absolute tabulations (with a little indirection):

      std::cout
          << boost::format("%1% %2%, %|20t|lives at %3%\n")
              % "Mr"
              % "Smith"
              % "the Smith residence"
          << std::endl;


      std::string scratch;

      fastformat::fmtln(
          std::cout
      ,   "{0,20,,<}lives at {1}"
      ,   fastformat::fmt(

Performance:

FastFormat's performance has been extensively tested, and in every case it has superior performance to the C++ standard library's IOStreams, Boost.Format and Loki.SafeFormat. In most cases it has equivalent performance to the (type-unsafe) C standard library's Streams (printf()-family). Test results are included on the project website, and in the first in the Overload article series; the third article in the series has a further set of four performance tests, based on real-world uses of FastFormat in commercial projects.

Features:

  • 100% type-safe
  • Presents a natural syntax
  • Infinitely extensible
  • Highly-efficient:
    • no intermediate memory allocations
    • no intermediate string copying
    • no repetition of any string-length calculations
    • at most one allocation required to produce the resultant string
  • Verified with Borland, Metrowerks' CodeWarrior, Digital Mars, GCC, Intel, and Visual C++ compilers
  • Verified on Linux, Mac OS-X, and Windows

Requirements:

    STLSoft libraries (1.9.1 beta 81 or later); 100% header-only open-source.

FFTPACK++ - C++ version of FFTPACK

FFT_Pack is a C++ wrapper for FFTPACK complex routines using LAPACK++ Matrix and Vector classes. FFTPACK routines were converted to C using f2c and also modified to use double precision complex using -r8 to f2c.

Most of this code was lifted directly from GNU OCTAVE v1.1.0, hence the copyright notice at the top.

The forward FFT takes you to freq domain (ala direction == -1), and backward the other way.

Passing LaVectorComplex/Double or LaGenMatComplex/Double with one dimension set to 1 will implicitly perform 1D FFT on the data.

The members of the FFT_Pack class are declared static, since they really need no private member storage. There are two types of transform routines: ones that return a new complex matrix and the ones that change the matrix in place.

The original FFTPACK does not appear to be available any more, but I found the link below to a different (possibly improved) version.

Field3D - A file format and data structures for storing 3D voxel and simulation data

Field3D is an open source library for storing voxel data. It provides C++ classes that handle in-memory storage and a file format based on HDF5 that allows the C++ objects to be written to and read from disk.

The library and file format is both flexible and extendable. The flexibility comes from supporting heterogeneous storage of data structures, bit depths, transformations/mappings and metadata in a single file. When functionality needs to be extended, the plugin and class factory architecture allows new data structures, mappings and file I/O routines to be added.

Field3D was developed with the needs and scale of visual effects production in mind. Dense and MAC-fields handle the basic tasks in fluid simulation and volume rendering, and where memory becomes a limiting factor optimization of used/unused space is provided by the sparse fields, which include an out-of-core/dynamic loading mechanism. Procedural fields are also supported, which may be used interchangeably with voxel-based fields.

The code was initially developed at Sony Pictures Imageworks as a replacement for the three different in-house file formats previously used to store voxel data. It is currently used in several contexts: both our volume rendering and fluid simulation frameworks use it as their native data structures and file format, and in Houdini it serves as the base for our voxel and levelset editing toolsets.

G3Log - Asynchronous logger, cross-platform and "crash safe"

G3log is an asynchronous "crash safe" logger used on at least the following platforms:
  • Linux/g++ 4.7.4 and higher
  • OSX/g++ and Clang
  • Windows/g++ and VS2013
All slow I/O and logging sink processing is done in background threads. At shutdown all buffered log entries are flushed to the sinks before exiting.

Fatal events such as segmentation fault (SIGSEGV) are caught And a stackdump is added to the buffered log entries. This ensures the same reliability as if using a slower synchronous logger.

Logging sink receivers are easy to add in runtime.

GiNaC - Symbolic computation embedded in C++

GiNaC is an iterated and recursive acronym for GiNaC is Not a CAS, with CAS standing for Computer Algebra System. It is designed to allow the creation of integrated systems that embed symbolic manipulations together with more established areas of compute r science (like computation- intense numeric applications, graphical interfaces, etc.) under one roof. It is distributed under the terms and conditions of the GNU general public license GPL.

It implements a class hierarchy with the basic classes needed to create symbolic expressions, including abritrary length/precision numbers (drawing from the CLN library). The classes provide basic symbolic manipulations as well as memory management through reference counting, disk-I/O, etc. Using the Cint C/C++ interpreter it is even possible to use it in an interactive manner.

It is written in standard C++ and should compile on any compliant compiler. Since it has to be linked with CLN, however, it is somewhat tricky (but not impossible) to do so on other compilers than GCC.

GRETA Regular Expression Template Archive - Fast, Perl 5-compliant regular expression template library for C++

GRETA is a (yet another) C++ template library for regular expression pattern matching. It was developed in Microsoft Research. GRETA's distinguishing features are: high performance, Perl compatibility, and clean STL integration. You can perform matches with any bidirectional iterator type, or on a std::basic_string, or on a C-style NULL-terminated string. It supports wide and narrow character types (wchar_t and char) and respects the C locale setting (as specified by setlocale()). GRETA lets you customize regular expression syntax via a syntax module template parameter. Perl 5 and Basic POSIX syntax modules are included.

GTL - The Graph Template Library

The Standard Template Library (STL) is supposed to become a part of the C++ standard library and therefore is an ideal basis when writing portable programs.

Unfortunately, STL has no support for graphs and graph algorithms. However, graphs are widely used to model complex relational structures.

Since we are intensively working with graph algorithms and Graphlet, we decided to implement GTL, a graph library based on STL. For the design of GTL's API the API of LEDA has served as a basis. GTL contains the classes needed to work with graphs, nodes and edges and some basic algorithms as building blocks for more complex graph algorithms. Further algorithms are under work.

IMP, the Integrative Modeling Platform - IMP is a platform for modeling the structure and dynamics of protein assemblies

IMP's broad goal is to contribute to a comprehensive structural characterization of biomolecules ranging in size and complexity from small peptides to large macromolecular assemblies. Detailed structural characterization of assemblies is generally impossible by any single existing experimental or computational method. This barrier can be overcome by hybrid approaches that integrate data from diverse biochemical and biophysical experiments (eg, x-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, electron microscopy, immuno-electron microscopy, footprinting, chemical cross-linking, FRET spectroscopy, small angle X-ray scattering, immunoprecipitation, genetic interactions, etc...). We formulate the hybrid approach to structure determination as an optimization problem, the solution of which requires three main components:
  • the representation of the assembly,
  • the scoring function and
  • the optimization method.
  • The ensemble of solutions to the optimization problem embodies the most accurate structural characterization given the available information.
We created IMP, the Integrative Modeling Platform, to make it easier to implement such an integrative approach to structural and dynamics problems. IMP is designed to allow mixing and matching of existing modeling components as well as easy addition of new functionality. We encourage and support contributions from other laboratories through the IMP Community.

New C++ libraries augment the baseline drawing editor mechanism of Unidraw with various features, which are then used in drawing editors evolved from idraw: a network-ready editor, a multi-frame flipbook editor, and a hiearchical node-graph editor. Optionally can be compiled to use ACE and clippoly C++ libraries.

ixlib - c++ tools library

ixlib is a C++ tools library based upon the STL. It provides garbage collection, a small well-integratable JavaScript interpreter, linear algebra components (e.g., linear solver, LU decomposition), planar geometry, polygons, automatic arrays, rasterization for geometric primitives and polygons, regular expressions and XML parsing (non-DTD). Its main design goals were simplicity and small size.

GNU C++ 2.95.2 (linux and mingw32) tested, any ISO-compliant compiler should work.

jsoncons C++ header-only library - JSON construction with JSONPointer, JSONPatch, J

jsoncons is a modern C++, header-only library for constructing JSON. It supports parsing a JSON file or string into a json value, building a json value in C++ code, and serializing a json value to a file or string. It also provides an API for generating json read and write events in code, somewhat analogously to SAX processing in the XML world. It is distributed under the Boost Software License.

jsoncons uses some features that are new to C++ 11, including move semantics and the AllocatorAwareContainer concept. It has been tested with MS VC++ 2015, GCC 4.8, GCC 4.9, GCC 6.2.0 and recent versions of clang. Note that std::regex isn't fully implemented in GCC 4.8., so jsoncons_ext/jsonpath regular expression filters aren't supported for that compiler.

JsonMe++ - JSON parsing C++ wrapper library with operator overloading.

The JsonMe++ (JSON Made easy for C++) library is a C++ wrapper for the JSON-Glib C library. The library makes heavy use of C++ syntactic sugar type C++ language constructs, most notably the subscript operator and cast operator as essential API components, which makes this JSON library extremely simple to use. As a result, access to a deeply nested value from a piece of JSON data can be expressed simply.

These are parameterizable classes, you may add your own datatype and have a priority queue ... An important datatype is a graph, these are also parameterizable and there are useful algorithms for them like shortest path, transitive closure, matching, maximum flow, spanning tree and others, we have implemented a few algorithms for dealing with perfect graphs, but these ar not part of the standard library. The latest part deals with computational geometry.

LibKISSLog - Light-weight C++ template library for logging.

libKISSlog is a trivial lightweight C++ template library for logging designed and written according to the KISS (Keep It Simple and Straightforward) principle. It leans heavily on STL for keeping its implementation as simple as its usage, and tries to provide C++ developers with a lightweight, paradigm-pure, and flexible alternative to logging libraries which use design and/or implementation decisions which at least the author of libKISSlog believes to be questionable. Its easiest to explain why libKISSlog would be suitable for your needs by listing the things which libKISSlog does not choose to use or do: no singletons or other forms of mutable global state, no macros, no attempt to fit the Java runtime everything model onto a C++ library, no attempt to be a Java-style (bloated) framework, no attempt to make the choice for you of whether you need thread safety, and no compromise on simplicity in order to facilitate questionable inner-loop logging practices.

Lily (LIsp LibrarY) - Gives C++ programmers the capability to write LISP-style code

I think Lily will be useful in academia for instructors who want to teach artificial intelligence techniques with C++. The garbage collection mechanism employed by Lily is slow which will make it unattractive for commercial use.

Documentation is minimal. The "Lily User's Guide" (in file lily.txt) provides a good overview of the architecture of Lily -- the document is unfinished. All of the example programs are from Winston's book "LISP Second Edition" so you will be much better off if you have a copy. Steele's "Common LISP" describes the behavior of the LISP functions.

LinAlg - C++ Linear Algebra and Optimization classlib

  • defines Matrix,Vector, subMatrices, and LAStreams over real domain;
  • contains efficient and fool-proof implementations of level 1 and 2 BLAS (element-wise operations and various multiplications), transposition, determinant evaluation and matrix inverse.
  • There are operations on a single row/col/diagonal of a matrix.
  • Distinct features of the package are Matrix views, various Matrix streams, and LazyMatrices. Lazy construction allows one to write matrix expressions in a natural way while imposing no hidden temporaries, no deep copying, and no reference counting.
  • LinAlg stresses Matrix streams, which provide a sequential view/access to a matrix or its parts. LABlockStreams may span over an arbitrary rectangular block of a matrix, including the whole matrix, a single matrix element, and all other block sizes in between. Matrix streams are seek-able and subrange-able. A stream or a substream are always created in-line; they do not allocate any heap storage, and are safe.
  • The package implements Singular Value Decomposition (SVD), and its application to solving Ax=b, where matrix A does not have to be square, and b does not have to be a thin vector.
  • The package also implements Brent's univariate optimization and root finding, Hooke-Jeeves multidimensional optimization of functors, and Aitken-Lagrange interpolation.
  • Every feature is extensively tested in the validation code (included).

The network version comes with either a Novell server or an NT server with clients for Windows 95/98/2000 and Windows NT. Both versions have libraries for Borland C++, Delphi, C++ Builder and Visual Basic.

Lodestar Database has been in use for 10 years in the financial industry and has contributed to huge run time improvements in Credit Union software used throughout the US, but is just now being released to the public as shareware. Credit Unions with as many as 10 branches and thousands of users are currently using our database engine with sub-second response times. Statement runs are 35 minutes for a 35,000 member credit union with over 100,000 accounts and can be run while the credit union is open with virtually no degradation in online response time.

macstl - Modern generic programming for SIMD and the Mac

The C++ header library designed to bring the Macintosh into the world of modern generic programming.

Generic programming is the art -- some say, the black art -- of making software components super-reusable and yet ultra-efficient. Our tool is the C++ template, and our result is code nearly as fast as hand-coded machine language.

macstl was inspired by the premier generic library, the Standard Template Library (now part of the C++ Standard Library), but with a distinct Macintosh flavor. Many components let you use low-level Mac OS X functionality like SIMD acceleration and memory copy-on-write easily and intuitively.

Although macstl started on the Mac, it now has a cross-platform look. Over 14,000 source lines of code compile cleanly on different C++ compilers. The SIMD classes work seamlessly on PowerPC’s running Mac OS X and Pentium’s running Windows XP.

macstl provides these sets of classes:

  • valarray -- numeric arrays highly optimized for SIMD architectures like Altivec and MMX/SSE/SSE2/SSE3.
  • vec -- a portable, extensible SIMD toolkit with intuitive, fast functions; the trig functions and integer division can’t be beat so far...
  • mach -- allocator and partially specialized vector for fast OS-level copy-on-write.
  • core -- adapting Core Foundation and Foundation classes for STL.
  • com -- interface pointer and a fast, lightweight server implementation for Microsoft COM and Apple CFPlugIns.
  • mmapping -- treating files as STL containers.

The library is open-source and free when derived code is reciprocated; for others, licensing is $99 (Personal) or $499 (Corporate).

Compiled code runs significantly faster than the original interpreted source.

Source code created highly resembles the original code using C++ language features. The compilation is fully automated by a smart project manager.

Matrices of doubles, floats, ints and chars are supported, providing lower memory usage for many applications, especially Signal and Image Processing.

Evaluation version (fully functional, 30 days limited) is available for free download from the Web page. Information packet is also available by e-mail and fax.

An introductory price for MATCOM V2 is 300$ for a single user license, with discounts on quantity and for academic institutes. Prices are valid until Jan 1, 1997.

Matrix11 - C++ matrix template class library (source)

This matrix template class can be used to perform common matrix operations in your C++ program like any other built-in data types. Though I have written this class in compliance with ANSI/ISO C++ standard, you may encounter some compilation problem, particularly with older version of compilers, because all standard features of namespace, exception and template may not be fully supported in your compiler. In that case you may just want to disable any or all the above features by defining the appropriate macros. I have included full source code as inline functions in the header file so you can modify it if necessary.

The implementation is not optimized for performance and memory usage. So it is not suitable for large and sparse matrices. But for small and medium size matrices these should not be a problem, keeping in mind the present generation of powerful computers.

Special requirements: An up-to-date C++ compiler.

Changes: Some conditional compilation code has been added for different compilers.

mimetic - a full featured MIME library written in C++

Features

  • Very easy to use

    This was, from the beginning, one of the objectives of mimetic.
    If you know the MIME standard you'll rarely need online documentation.

  • Full featured

    Everything you expect to find in a MIME library is already into mimetic, if you'll not find it is because your requirements are probably insane :) Oh well cryptography is not in the library yet, but it will some day.

  • Standard compliant

    mimetic tries to follow current standards as closely as possible.

  • STL based

    This could be a very big advantage if you know the STL and want to integrate mimetic into your STL based project. You'll have same powerful concepts and classes fully applicable to emails. If you don't know the STL so this is a good opportunity to learn it! A very good reference (yet freely readable) is the Dinkum C++ Library Reference.

  • Compile-time codec chains

    Codec chains are template based so that codecs are chained together by the compiler using inline functions whenever possible to speed up runtime performance.
    Creating a codec chain will sound very familiar if you know Unix pipes:

    codec0 | codec1 | codec2 | ... | last_codec

  • Portable

    The developer personally tested it on Linux, {Open,Free,Net}BSD, Solaris, Mac OS X. It uses Autotools to compile so porting on any Unix system should be easy.

    Windows port has been done by Andreas Gruen but it's no loger maintained. You can get last release of Visual Studio project files into mimetic/win32 directory.

    If those are not enough please consider using Unix-style compiling on Windows using Cygwin or MinGW.

  • More then 50 test functions, more then 2500 checks

    cutee has been used for Unit Testing and there are a lot of tests the run automatically every time someone compiles mimetic. This doesn't mean that it's bug free but it helps.

  • Open source

    Source code of the library, tests and examples are bundled into the distribution package. All except codec code (that is heavily template based) is very readable so if Documentation is not good enough for you sources can be your primary reference.

  • HTML documentation

    Library documentation is generated from source code by Doxygen. You can browse it online of generate yourself for offline browsing.

Operating Systems

  • could run on any OS, but not tested

Mini-XML - Lightweight XML Library

Mini-XML is a small XML library that you can use to read and write XML and XML-like data files in your application without requiring large non-standard libraries. Mini-XML only requires an ANSI C compatible compiler (GCC works, as do most vendors' ANSI C compilers) and a 'make' program.

Mini-XML supports reading of UTF-8 and UTF-16 and writing of UTF-8 encoded XML files and strings. Data is stored in a linked-list tree structure, preserving the XML data hierarchy, and arbitrary element names, attributes, and attribute values are supported with no preset limits, just available memory.

mpatrol - A library for controlling, tracing and profiling dynamic memory allocations.

A link library that attempts to diagnose run-time errors that are caused by the wrong use of dynamically allocated memory. Along with providing a comprehensive and configurable log of all dynamic memory operations that occurred during the lifetime of a program, the mpatrol library performs extensive checking to detect any misuse of dynamically allocated memory. All of this functionality can be integrated into existing code through the inclusion of a single header file at compile-time. All logging and tracing output from the mpatrol library is sent to a separate log file in order to keep its diagnostics separate from any that the program being tested might generate. A wide variety of library settings can also be chan!ged at run-time via an environment variable, thus removing the need to recompile or relink in order to change the library's behaviour.

MTL: The Matrix Template Library - A library of generic components for basic linear algebra

The Matrix Template Library is a C++ class library for basic linear algebra. The MTL is designed for high-performance while at the same time taking advantage of the generic programming paradigm (ala the STL) to allow much greater flexibility and breadth of functionality. Many new and advanced programming techniques were used in the construction of this library.

The MTL is a low level library in the sense that the user must be conscious of the matrix type being used, and that all computationally expensive operations are explicit. The MTL is not a C++ Matlab. Nevertheless, the interface is designed to be simple and easy to use.

The matrix types provided include compressed sparse row/column, banded, packed, diagonal (and tridiagonal), envelope, array of pointers, and of course dense matrices. All matrix types share a common and easy to use interface.

The algorithms consist of the traditional basic linear algebra routines (from the BLAS level-1 to 3) which includes matrix and vector arithmetic as well as operations such as backward substitution and norm calculations.

NIHCL - (National Institute of Health's C++ Library)

NIHCL is essentially a mapping of part of Smalltalk's library into C++. It lies somewhere between OATH and COOL. It is a little better supported and there is a textbook by the author, Keith Gorlen, that is fairly good documentation. However, the Smalltalk hierarchy is not completely consistent (IMO) with the C++ strong typing nature. It is weakly supported.

OpenEXR - a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format for use in computer imaging

OpenEXR is a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format developed by Industrial Light & Magic for use in computer imaging applications. OpenEXR is used by ILM on all motion pictures currently in production. The first movies to employ OpenEXR were Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, Men in Black II, Gangs of New York, and Signs. Since then, OpenEXR has become ILM's main image file format. OpenEXR's features include:
  • Higher dynamic range and color precision than existing 8- and 10-bit image file formats.
  • Support for 16-bit floating-point, 32-bit floating-point, and 32-bit integer pixels. The 16-bit floating-point format, called "half", is compatible with the half data type in NVIDIA's Cg graphics language and is supported natively on their new GeForce FX and Quadro FX 3D graphics solutions.
  • Multiple lossless image compression algorithms. Some of the included codecs can achieve 2:1 lossless compression ratios on images with film grain.
  • Extensibility. New compression codecs and image types can easily be added by extending the C++ classes included in the OpenEXR software distribution. New image attributes (strings, vectors, integers, etc.) can be added to OpenEXR image headers without affecting backward compatibility with existing OpenEXR applications.
ILM has released OpenEXR as free software. The OpenEXR software distribution includes:
  • IlmImf, a library that reads and writes OpenEXR images.
  • Half, a C++ class for manipulating half values as if they were a built-in C++ data type.
  • Imath, a math library with support for matrices, 2d- and 3d-transformations, solvers for linear/quadratic/cubic equations, and more.
  • exrdisplay, a sample application for viewing OpenEXR images on a display at various exposure settings.

OpenRTL - General purpose programming library

The OpenRTL library is an extensive augmentation to the standard C library and an alternative to large portions of the C runtime and the STL. OpenRTL text processing is UTF based for all UTF flavours. OpenRTL is itself an open standard, and this project is the official implementation. At the C and C++ compiler level, OpenRTL merges itself over the top of the standard C libraries of compilers such as GCC, BCC and MSC, on windows, linux and mac.

OpenRTL solves the portability of code problem by using a native code approach instead of a wrapper based approach. Wrapper solutions that wrap to many underlying OS calls tend not to work exactly the same on different platforms. For functionality that cannot be wrapped, only then are OS calls used, such as for threads and mutexes for example.

Features of OpenRTL

  • UTF based using UTF-8, UTF-32 and UTF-16.
  • Advanced memory management functions
  • Full unicode support
  • Full locale implementation
  • String manipulation functions in all UTF flavours.
  • Localized and non localized string and date functions.
  • Legacy windows compatible character set conversion.
  • Works on win, mac, ios, linux.
  • Unrestricted code license policy.
  • Full test suite.

OptiVec - Vectorized functions library for Borland C/C++

OptiVec contains more than 3000 hand-optimized, Assembler-written functions for all floating-point and integer data types, running, on the average, 2-3 times faster than compiled C/C++ code of the same functionality.

The following fields are covered:

  1. Vectorized form of all arithmetic operators and math functions of C/C++
  2. Statistics
  3. Analysis (derivatives, integrals, extrema, interpolation)
  4. Fast Fourier Transform techniques for efficient convolutions, correlation analyses, spectral filtering, etc.
  5. Curve fitting for a wide range of model functions from simple linear regression to non-linear models with multiple data sets
  6. Graphical representation of data in Cartesian coordinates
  7. Matrix operations, e.g.: multiplication, inversion, LU decomposition, singular value decomposition, two-dimensional FFT, eigenvalues
  8. Complex number math
The vectorized implementation in Assembler ensures not only superior speed; in many instances, the numerical accuracy is improved as well.

  • Efficiency - the length of each element in a statement is determined at most once; the contents of each element in a statement is copied at most once; memory is allocated for the prepared statement at most once (and even then only if the total statement length exceeds 2047 characters).
  • Extensibility - the back-end transport can be customised by the user to any conceivable transport, should the stock back-ends prove insufficient for a particular need. The distribution includes transports over the following:
    • SysLog
    • - both UNIX and Windows
    • COM Error Object
    • Adaptive Communications Environment (ACE) Logger
    • Windows Debugger
    • Windows Event Log
    • stdout/stderr
  • Filtered - statements are filtered based on a 32-bit severity level, incorporating, but not limited to, the standard eight levels described by SysLog
  • Genericity - log statement elements may be of arbitrary type. Support for a large number of known types is implicit because Pantheios uses the STLSoft libraries. Extension to new/custom types is achievable by several different techniques, which one selects as appropriate.
  • 100% type-safety - Use of Pantheios from C++ is 100% type-safe (unlike the unsafe printf()-family, or the IOStreams).
But above all else Pantheios adheres to the important principle of C programming that:
  • You don't pay for what you don't use. If a statement at a given severity level is not to be emitted, no conversions, no concatenations, no memory allocation nor any other expensive operations are carried out.
The library is portable, and has been used on UNIX (Linux) and Win32 operating systems. There should be no impediment to it working on any platform, or flavour thereof

The library is compatible with a large range of C++ compilers. It even compiles with Visual C++ v5.0!

PARODY - C++ DATABASE LIBRARY

Al Stevens has written a book on the subject called `Database programming in C++' or something. An article on the subject was printed in Doctor Dobbs Journal some time ago.

The nice thing is that Stevens also wrote a C++ library adding persistence to C++, and the source is available. The library is called PARODY and compiles under most DOS-based C++ compilers. A slight rewrite of the GUI- routines has to be done to make it compile under GNU C.

Perry Rapp says "The zipped sources in the ftp version include a license statement permitting source redistribution in the exact format of the zip file (ie, unmodified and as original zip file). This is a more liberal policy than the license of the software with the book, which allows no source redistribution at all."

PATL - Practical Algorithm Template Library - C++ library on PATRICIA trie

Major features: STL-compatible, high-performance template containers and auxiliary classes useful for stringology with fine-grained low level design.

Library features:

  • set & map containers with trie (digital/radix search tree) functionality - patl::trie_set & patl::trie_map;
  • set & map containers with online suffix tree functionality - patl::suffix_set & patl::suffix_map - with linear time & space: 16 bytes per symbol, alphabet-independent;
  • bunch of iterators over each type of containers - standard ([const_][reverse_]iterator), special ((post|pre|level)order_iterator), partial match iterators ([const_]partimator) and suffix_cont-special (match_iterator & [super_]maxrep_iterator);
  • partimator's can be specialized with one of the decision functors: partial_match (filter strings with joker pattern), hamming distance (filter strings with Hamming automata), levenshtein_[tp_|ms_]distance (filter strings with Levenshtein automata with optional operations like transposition or merge-split);
  • lowest common ancestor (LCA) requests with constant time after linear time & space postprocessing of the suffix_cont - patl::lca_oracle.
All features of this library can be examined with small demo programs delivered within.

PDBlib - Library for modeling a macromolecular structure

PDBlib is a class library written in C++ for modeling a macromolecular structure at the level of detail (excluding symmetry information) found in a Protein Data Back (PDB) file. A class is supplied to read a PDB file into a PDBlib representation. This class is independent of the actual representation and other forms of input, for example from a relational database like SESAM, are possible.

The library is made extensible by a close coupling between intrinsic and external classes. By writing only to the external classes you will remain compliant with future versions of the library.

You don't get source code. This is a temporary situation while we attempt to centralize bug fixes and additions to the library. If you find this situation unworkable source code is available by signing a copyright agreement which is available with the distribution.

The following files are available :

  • PDBLib.1.0.SGI.tar.Z Compressed tar file of PDB object classes library and header files for SGI. AT&T C++ release 2.1 & 3.0 compatible.
  • PDBLib.1.0.Sun.tar.Z Compressed tar file of PDB object classes library and header files for Sun Sparc station. AT&T C++ release 2.1 & 3.0 compatible.

PEGTL - Parsing Expression Grammar Template Library

The Parsing Expression Grammar Template Library (PEGTL) is a C++11 header-only library for creating parsers according to a Parsing Expression Grammar (PEG). Grammars are written as regular C++ code, created with template programming, i.e. nested template instantiations that naturally correspond to the inductive definition of PEGs or other parser combinator approaches. A comprehensive set of parser rules that can be combined and extended by the user is included, as are mechanisms for debugging grammars and attaching user-defined actions to grammar rules.

physfs - Library for filesystem operations (with archives)

PhysicsFS is a library to provide abstract access to various archives. It is intended for use in video games, and the design was somewhat inspired by Quake 3's file subsystem. The programmer defines a "write directory" on the physical filesystem. No file writing done through the PhysicsFS API can leave that write directory, for security. For example, an embedded scripting language cannot write outside of this path if it uses PhysFS for all of its I/O, which means that untrusted scripts can run more safely. Symbolic links can be disabled as well, for added safety. For file reading, the programmer lists directories and archives that form a "search path". Once the search path is defined, it becomes a single, transparent hierarchical filesystem. This makes for easy access to ZIP files in the same way as you access a file directly on the disk, and it makes it easy to ship a new archive that will override a previous archive on a per-file basis. Finally, PhysicsFS gives you platform-abstracted means to determine if CD-ROMs are available, the user's home directory, where in the real filesystem your program is running, etc.

png++ - a C++ wrapper for libpng

PNG++ aims to provide simple yet powerful C++ interface to libpng, the PNG reference implementation library. PNG++ is free software distributed under a modified variant of BSD license. Using raw libpng in C++ may impose serious challenge since lots of precautions must be taken to handle initialization/deinitialization of control structures as well as handling errors correctly. With png++ you can read or write PNG images just in a single line of C++ code: png::image< png::rgb_pixel > image("input.png"); image.write("output.png");

PNGwriter - A C++ class allowing easy plotting to (and reading from) PNG images

This class, which requires libpng, allows you to plot to a 16-bit PNG file, saving it directly to disk. Plotting is as easy as specifying the red, green, blue values and the x, y coordinates of the pixel.

It includes functions for plotting simple geometric shapes (circle, rect, line), reading the colour of a pixel, reading in a whole PNG file (great for image analysis), plotting and reading in HSV colourspace and many others that might come in handy.

This class has proven tremendously useful for my own scientific simulation needs, and I would like others to benefit from its use as well.

It is available in both english and spanish, and is complemented by a PDF manual and a website with examples, a forum, and so on.

I have only tested it on Mac OS X and Debian Linux, but I don't see why it shouldn't compile on anything that has libpng.

POCO C++ Libraries - POCO are open source libraries accelerating development of network-centric porta

The POCO C++ Libraries (POCO stands for POrtable COmponents) are open source C++ class libraries that simplify and accelerate the development of network-centric, portable applications in C++. The libraries integrate perfectly with the C++ Standard Library and fill many of the functional gaps left open by it. Their modular and efficient design and implementation makes the POCO C++ Libraries extremely well suited for embedded development, an area where the C++ programming language is becoming increasingly popular, due to its suitability for both low-level (device I/O, interrupt handlers, etc.) and high-level object-oriented development. Of course, the POCO C++ Libraries are also ready for enterprise-level challenges. The POCO C++ Libraries free developers from re-inventing the wheel, and allow them to spend their time on more worthwhile areas, such as getting things done quickly and working on the features that make their application unique.

Ptypes - C++ Portable Types Library

PTypes (C++ Portable Types Library) is a simple alternative to the STL that includes multithreading and networking. It defines dynamic strings, character sets, lists, and other basic data types along with threads, synchronization and IP sockets. PTypes also offers message queues as an alternative method of thread synchronization.

pystring - Python string methods with std::string

Pystring is a collection of C++ functions which match the interface and behavior of python’s string class methods using std::string. Implemented in C++, it does not require or make use of a python interpreter. It provides convenience and familiarity for common string operations not included in the standard C++ library. It’s also useful in environments where both C++ and python are used.

Overlapping functionality (such as index and slice/substr) of std::string is included to match python interfaces.

Originally developed at Sony Pictures Imageworks.

RapidXml - RapidXml is an attempt to create the fastest XML parser possible.

RapidXml is an attempt to create the fastest XML DOM parser possible, while retaining useability, portability and reasonable W3C compatibility. It is an in-situ parser written in C++, with parsing speed approaching that of strlen() function executed on the same data.

Entire parser is contained in a single header file, so no building or linking is neccesary. To use it you just need to copy rapidxml.hpp file to a convenient place (such as your project directory), and include it where needed. You may also want to use printing functions contained in header rapidxml_print.hpp.

Rhapsodia.Scheduler - Concurrency Support Library

Rhapsodia.Scheduler library provides minimal and hopefully complete versions of classes commonly used in concurrent C++ programming. The library code consists of concepts that have been successfully used in production systems and follows well established concurrency design patterns and language idioms. Most of all, the emphasis has been on code that will work well with the C++ Standard Library and the Boost library.

Library is hosted at SourceForge.net

SCEW - Simple C Expat Wrapper

The aim of SCEW is to provide an easy interface around the XML Expat parser, as well as a simple interface for creating new XML documents. It provides functions to load and access XML elements without the need to create Expat event handling routines every time you want to load a new XML document.

These are the main SCEW features:

  • Uses a DOM-like object model for new or parsed XML documents.
  • Supports loading concatenated XML documents.
  • Can copy and compare full XML documents, elements or attributes.
  • Writes XML documents to multiple outputs.
  • Allows adding new I/O sources easily.
  • UTF-8, ISO-8859-1 and US-ASCII encodings (and UTF-16 in Windows).

script - C++ interpreted language

This a set of C++ classes which create a new interpreted language which is freely inspired from "C" and HP RPL (that's calculators).

This scripting language is freely inspired by the C-language syntax and HP's RPL in the way of manipulating variables : - There are no variable declaration, but the first use of a new variable name must be a write (no read allowed on a undefined name). You can considere that the declaration is included in this first write. I find this way to do the declaration good to avoid use of uninitialised variable. - Control structures must have the prefix #. This language syntax isn't very beautiful but I found it cleared the code. - Functions exists through file separation : one file, one function. The behavior is the same as Matlab .M files. - A variable isn't type constant. This allows a variable name to change of type. Actually, 5 types can be used, but the structure of the program allows an easy add of new types : integer, strings, real, array and list.

The full source is provided and some examples of scripts.

Shift-Right Open Repository - C++ Class Library and Reusable Build Environment

The Shift-Right Open Repository is a complete development environment for C/C++ programmers. The main focus of the Repository is on reusable code. Another characteristic of the Repository is that the majority of the code was developed for embedded software development. And as such, was designed to meet the constrained environment of embedded programming. The most obvious characteristics are the obsession with deterministic memory management and strict type checking.

The C++ library contains a large range of functionality and interfaces such as: threading, inter-thread communications, streamio, socketio, parsing, multi-threaded database support, strings, containers, etc. The Repository also contains reusable build environment

SObjectizer - It's all about in-process message dispatching!

SObjectizer is a small tool for simplification of development of concurrent and event-driven applications in C++. It was used for projects of various sizes: from very small utilities to large distributed and highly loaded applications.

SObjectizer is strongly influenced by agent-oriented approach. It allows to build a concurrent application as a set of agent-objects which interact with each other only by means of asynchronous messages. SObjectizer takes responsibility of in-process message dispatching and providing working context for message processing. And allows to tune those things by supplying various ready-to-use dispatchers just out-of-box.

SOCKET++ - C++ iostream like library for sockets and pipes

The code was oringially developed by Gnanasekaran (Sekar) Swaminathan (gs4t@virginia.edu), at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Virginia, a few years ago. The master repository was ftp://ftp.virginia.edu/pub.

Version 1.10 does not include C++ exception handling, and it therefore "more portable".

Version 1.11 has a number of changes that make it less portable. I recommend that you use version 1.10 unless you want to try out using exception handling, then you can try using version 1.11. If you use version 1.11, then you will need to catch exceptions in your mail client.

stdlib - UTF8 console i/o in Windows, other crucial stdlib fixes, functional area headers

stdlib is a pure header library that provides
  • fixes for some standard library issues, including that <stdlib/console_io.hpp> makes Windows console i/o work for international text such as Norwegian (more precisely the Basic Multilingual Plane of Unicode is supported for the iostreams objects such as cout), with narrow text encoded as UTF-8;
  • C++ library header wrappers for all C++ standard library headers, e.g. you can just include <stdlib/iostream.hpp> where you want the <iostream> header with the Windows console i/o fix, plus some;
  • C library header wrappers, e.g. <stdlib/math.hpp> which for maximal portability includes both <cmath> and <math.h> for you, and ditto for the other C library headers;
  • functional area headers for the C++ standard library, e.g. just include <stdlib/io.hpp> to get all the C++ iostreams headers plus the C standard library’s i/o headers, more precisely all headers in this category mentioned in the header overview at cppreference.com; and
  • extensions such as <stdlib/byte_to_wide_converter.hpp>, which provides the class that’s used for narrow and wide encoding conversion in the Windows console i/o fix. Most of the extensions are part of the library implementation anyway, so they’re provided in a reusable form in the public interface. Those that are not directly used in the current library code, are provided for completeness.
Other fixes & nice-to-haves include
  • support for de facto standard <math.h> constants such as M_PI;
  • support for the C++ standard’s alternative keywords such as and, or and not, in Visual C++;
  • random seed for C++11 random number generation with g++;
  • support for output of something that converts implicitly to wchar const*, on a wide stream, corresponding to how something that converts implicitly to char const* can be output an a narrow stream;
  • setting the default locale in C and C++ to the user’s native locale, which makes the wide iostreams work for international text in *nix-land;
  • setting UTF-8 as the basic execution character set (i.e. for narrow literals) in Visual C++; and just because it’s nice to have in a portable way,
  • support for ANSI escape sequences, e.g. to produce colored console text or move the text cursor on the screen, in Windows 10 and later.

STXXL - Standard Template Library for Extra Large Data Sets

The core of STXXL is an implementation of the C++ standard template library STL for external memory (out-of-core) computations, i.e., STXXL implements containers and algorithms that can process huge volumes of data that only fit on disks. While the closeness to the STL supports ease of use and compatibility with existing applications, another design priority is high performance.

The key features of STXXL are:

  • Transparent support of parallel disks. The library provides implementations of basic parallel disk algorithms. STXXL is the only external memory algorithm library supporting parallel disks.
  • The library is able to handle problems of very large size (tested to up to dozens of terabytes).
  • Improved utilization of computer resources. STXXL implementations of external memory algorithms and data structures benefit from overlapping of I/O and computation.
  • Small constant factors in I/O volume. A unique library feature called "pipelining" can save more than half the number of I/Os in many applications.
  • Shorter development times due to well known STL-compatible interfaces for external memory algorithms and data structures.
  • STL algorithms can be directly applied to STXXL containers; moreover, the I/O complexity of the algorithms remains optimal in most of the cases.

td.lib - C/C++ Programmers time, date, and cal lib (adtd)

td.lib v2 is a small time and date library for C/C++ programmers. It contains practical time and date functions that overcome the limitations of the ANSI standard functions that ship with Borland, and Microsoft C++ compilers. Unlike the standard functions, td.lib allows the programmer to perform a variety of calculations using dates and times from Jan. 1, 1 A.D. to Dec. 31, 32766 and the ability to format and print the output of such calculations using ANSI format specifiers. Designed with the beginning programmer in mind, td.lib is easy to use and simplifies the process of coding time/date routines. The library is fully ANSI compliant and can be used with any standard C/C++ compiler. The source is freely available (mail the author).

Texas Persistant Store

Texas is a free persistent store that can be used with standard C++ compilers, and works efficiently with very little modification to most C++ programs. It runs on several varieties of UNIX and should be very easy to port to most modern operating systems, such as OS/2, Windows NT, Mach, Windows 4.0, etc. (If things we hear are correct, Linux will provide the necessary virtual memory features soon, too, and Texas will be ported about fifteen minutes later. :-)

Texas uses "pointer swizzling at page fault time", an address translation techique that converts pointers from an abstract format to actual virtual memory addresses when pages are first touched and brought into memory. (A similar technique, invented independently, is used in the market-leading persistent store/OODB, ObjectStore from Object Design Inc.) This allows Texas to be highly portable, avoiding any assumptions about where a page of data will be an a process' virtual memory address space; it can also support very large addresses spaces efficiently on stock 32-bit hardware. (It could also be used to efficiently provide shared address spaces across networked heterogenous machines with different hardware address sizes, e.g., across 32- and 64-bit machines.)

uSTL - uSTL is a partial implementation of the STL specification.

uSTL is a partial implementation of the STL specification intended to reduce code size of the derivative programs. Usually, the STL containers manage their own storage with new[] and delete[] operators, which create strongly typed storage. Although type safety is a good thing, placing memory management code into a template necessitates its reinstantiation for every template instance used by the derivative program. This produces substantial code bloat, that is frequently derided by C developers and used by them as an argument that C is better than C++. The uSTL implementation solves this problem by factoring memory management code into a non-template base class, ustl::memblock, which performs unstructured memory allocation. STL containers are then implemented as template wrappers for memblock to provide a measure of type safety.

UTF-8 CPP - A simple, portable generic library for handling UTF-8 encoded strings.

Many C++ developers miss an easy and portable way of handling Unicode encoded strings. The original C++ Standard (known as C++98 or C++03) is Unicode agnostic, and while some work is being done to introduce Unicode to the next incarnation called C++0x, for the moment nothing of the sort is available. In the meantime, developers use third party libraries like ICU, OS specific capabilities, or simply roll out their own solutions. In order to easily handle UTF-8 encoded Unicode strings, I came up with a small generic library. For anybody used to work with STL algorithms and iterators, it should be easy and natural to use. The code is freely available for any purpose - check out the license at the beginning of the utf8.h file. If you run into bugs or performance issues, please let me know and I'll do my best to address them. The purpose of this article is not to offer an introduction to Unicode in general, and UTF-8 in particular. If you are not familiar with Unicode, be sure to check out Unicode Home Page or some other source of information for Unicode. Also, it is not my aim to advocate the use of UTF-8 encoded strings in C++ programs; if you want to handle UTF-8 encoded strings from C++, I am sure you have good reasons for it.

UVS - C++ library dealing with univariate statistics

The scope of the library is univariate (single variable) statistics. In particular, the following statistical operations are supported:
  • distribution modeling: properties of commonly used statistical distributions
  • process generation: creating pseudo-random variables with specified distributions
  • sample statistics: for summarizing statistical data
  • hypothesis testing: for determining if experimental results could just be noise

Although UVS certainly does not provide a completely comprehensive treatment of these topics, facilities are provided to extend the library by coding additional classes or functions yourself.

Two types of random variable are supported: discrete (integer type) for statistics derived from counting, and continuous (floating point type) for all others.

The intended user is an application developer.

Although the code has been extensively tested, a realistic appraisal of its readiness is "alpha".

UVS was written with Visual C++ 6.0. Since that is the only compiler the author owns, no other platforms or compilers are currently supported.

All UVS symbols are in the "uvs" namespace.

UVS functions do not throw exceptions. If an argument value which calls for an infinite result is detected the function returns std::numeric_limits<double>::max().

UVS uses the Cephes library. The required components from this library are included with the distribution of UVS.

UVS is free. Full source code is provided.

valarray<Troy>

Attempts at providing the functionality described in Chapter 26 of the draft C++ standard. None of the releases stick perfectly to the specifications of the proposed standard. Version 2.0 is a very deliberate step away from the draft as released in April 1995 for public comments in the USA: it is used as a proof of concept to support a revision of the original specs.

Some characteristics:

  • heavy usage of templates and their automatic instantiation;
  • avoidance of temporary arrays in array expressions;
  • production of fast compact loops, but some overhead before entering those loops.

VTK - The Visualization Toolkit

The Visualization ToolKit (VTK) is an open source, freely available software system for 3D computer graphics, image processing, and visualization. VTK includes a textbook published by Prentice-Hall ( href="http://www.kitware.com/vtkhtml/vtkdata/HowToBuyBook.html"The Visualization Toolkit, An Object-Oriented Approach To 3D Graphics, 2nd edition" ISBN 0-13-954694-4 ), a C++ class library, and several interpreted interface layers including Tcl/Tk, Java, and Python. VTK has been implemented on nearly every Unix-based platform and PC's (Windows NT and Windows95).

The design and implementation of the library has been strongly influenced by object-oriented principles.

The graphics model in VTK is at a higher level of abstraction than rendering libraries like OpenGL or PEX. This means it is much easier to create useful graphics and visualization applications. In VTK applications can be written directly in C++, Tcl, Java, or Python. In fact, using the interpreted languages Tcl or Python with Tk, and even Java with its GUI class libraries, it is possible to build useful applications very quickly.

Finally, the software is a true visualization system, it doesn't just let you visualize geometry. VTK supports a wide variety of visualization algorithms including scalar, vector, tensor, texture, and volumetric methods; and advanced modeling techniques like implicit modelling, polygon reduction, mesh smoothing, cutting, contouring, and Delaunay triangulation. Moreover, we have directly integrated dozens of imaging algorithms into the system so you can mix 2D imaging / 3D graphics algorithms and data.

VXCL - The Virtual X Class Library

The Virtual X Class Library, or VXCL for short, is a non-commercial open source collection of powerful C++ classes that encapsulate the complexities of Windows and Linux/UNIX C and C++ development. All classes are designed to use the C++ language effectively and efficiently, with minimal overhead added to the application being developed. Code size and execution speed for applications built using VXCL are inline with programs built using standard C code. There are no bloated multi-megabyte DLL's or shared libraries that must be distributed with applications using VXCL, as the code is normally (but not required to be) statically linked with the application.

From April 1996 until March 2001, VXCL was known as VWCL, the Virtual Windows Class Library. In the beginning, VWCL was intended primarily for Windows development, but support for Linux/UNIX was added in 1999. Today, what was VWCL, is used daily for development of non-Windows applications as well as Windows programs. To better express the capabilities of the library, and to atract more development input from the UNIX community, we decided to rename the library to more appropriately describe the features it can provide. By dropping the 'Windows' in favor of X, we leave open the opportunity to develop the library on (and for) platform X, which can be anything. The X does not mean X Windows. It is simply a generic term (variable X) which can be whatever you want it to be.

It works as CGI (or FastCGI) programs, but it works nothing like "classical" CGI programming, where the programs contain all the HTML (or the no-much-better approach of things like PHP, where the HTML contains the program).

A variety of related tools are included, with particular emphasis on security (including wrappers for OpenSSL cryptographic primitives such as hashes, public-key encryption, and symmetric encryption).

Unlike many page-based frameworks, Wt was designed for creating stateful applications that are at the same time highly interactive (leveraging techinques such as AJAX to their fullest) and accessible (supporting plain HTML browsers), using automatic graceful degradation or progressive enhancement. It comes with an application server that acts as a stand-alone web server or integrates through FastCGI with other web servers.

XMLFoundation - Provides a foundation for XML support in an application

As the name suggests it provides a foundation for XML support in an application, however this is much more than just another XML parser. It applies a unique approach to handling XML that allows your application code to focus on the application rather than traversing DOM or subscribing to SAX events. The most unique feature of the XMLFoundation is the object oriented encapsulation that provides XML support in the application layer. XMLFoundation allows you to easily integrate XML with your GUI, or with your server objects, and it natively supports COM, DCOM, and CORBA objects.

XMLFoundation contains a small, fast, and portable XML tokenizer that has been refined and optimized in many large software projects for about 10 years. My involvement with XML pre-dates the finalization of the XML 1.0 recommendation by W3C. For years, the only XML Parser that could match XMLFoundation tokenization performance was "Xpat" by James Clark - but as you will see the unique ability to bypass DOM and SAX altogether makes XMLFoundation the fastest solution available for moving XML to and from application layer objects - and it requires far less lines of code to do it.

The performance of the stack based XML parser is at the top of its class for non-validating parsers. Parsing and tokenization is only half the task, the other half is getting the results into the member variables, lists, and objects that they need to be in to be useful in the application layer - it is in that task that XMLFoundation is in a class of its own. The performance is unparalleled because the memory buffer that contains the source XML parses directly into your custom class objects without ever being copied or temporarily stored in a DOM tree. It parses directly into your lists, objects, arrays, indexed data structures, and all native C++ data types. It even has support for common containers of element data such as MFC CStrings. It's been used in Java too. That said, speed of execution is less impressive than the speed of development and overall reduction in lines of code required to effectively use XML in your application.

If you are building an application that does not use XML and never will..... XMLFoundation is still a very valuable tool available to solve many very common development tasks. The data structure classes alone ( List, Hash, Stack, Tree, Array, QSort ) are very useful. They all have "Iterator" objects so that data structures can be read-referenced by multiple threads at the same time without blocking. The interface is standard to all data structures. If you find MFC or Rogue Wave Standard C++ library data structures useful, you will likely find XMLFoundation data structures even more so.

YAPL - Yet Another Parallel Library

YAPL (Yet Another Parallel Library) is a small experimental prototype implementation to illustrate some ideas about parallel libraries. It is a header-only library at present.

YAPL design principles:

The library is designed as an experimentation framework for containers and algorithms.
  1. User code should be the same in sequential and parallel modes. This ideal is not always achievable, but differences are minimized.
  2. There should be a clear separation between a container abstraction (a list of values) and its supporting implementation structure (e.g., a linked list of nodes or a vector.).
  3. For element access, YAPL uses mappings (a generalization of ranges). It does not use the C++ standard library iterators because iterators are inherently sequential.
  4. It should be easy to select the execution policy for an application (sequential, parallel, GPU, …).

YAPL structure:

The library offers components in five categories:
  • CONTAINER – provides a minimal interface for the container abstraction. A key property of a container is that it provides mechanisms for generating mappings to that container;
  • SUPPORT STRUCTURE – implements a concrete strategy that can be used by multiple containers;
  • MAPPING – provides an interface to operate on a subset of container elements. Different subsets may be generated through different defining criteria;
  • ALGORITHM – an operation that can be applied to any mapping;
  • POLICY – allows the programmer to configure how operations are sequenced and elements allocated.

Zipios++ - A small C++/iostream-based library for reading Zip files

Zipios++ is a small C++ library for reading Zip files. The structure and public interface are based (somewhat loosely) on the java.util.zip package. The streams created to access the individual entries in a Zip file are based on the standard iostream library. Additional features include

- support for embedding of a zip file in another file, e.g. a binary executable - Handling of a mix of ordinary directories and zip files through the same interface as a single zip file directory is handled through. In effect a simple virtual filesystem where ordinary directories and zipfiles can be mounted

The library is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).

Cppcheck - A tool for static C/C++ code analysis

Cppcheck is an static analysis tool for C/C++ code. Unlike C/C++ compilers and many other analysis tools it does not detect syntax errors in the code. Cppcheck primarily detects the types of bugs that the compilers normally do not detect. The goal is to detect only real errors in the code (i.e. have zero false positives).

    Features:
  • Out of bounds checking
  • Check the code for each class
  • Checking exception safety
  • Memory leaks checking
  • Warn if obsolete functions are used
  • Check for invalid usage of STL
  • Check for uninitialized variables and unused functions

Ct: C/C++ for Throughput Computing - Ct provides programmers with tools abstracting data-parallel programming

Intel developed Ct Technology with a singular vision: to provide programmers with tools that would abstract data-parallel programming away from the hardware, as well-known programming languages have done for single core processors, while also delivering forward-scaling performance across manycore and multicore processors. Ct technology assumes no specific processor architecture, but the underlying model requires a generalized parallel processing architecture as found in multicore and manycore processors.

Ct Technology provides several key benefits for developers:

  • Reduce Errors in Parallel Programming by supporting a programming style that tends to avoid the parallel programming pitfalls which can plague parallel program development. Specifically, Ct Technology provides determinism, which helps provide certain guarantees about safety. Safety helps avoid data races and deadlocks, the two most often encountered parallel programming bugs.
  • Parallel Programming that is readable with an expressive syntax that stays close the domain expert’s mode of expression. Ct technology excels at providing a framework that allows programs to keep a programming notation close to the notation used by non-programmer experts.
  • Scaling across Multicore and Manycore Processors: Simply put, today’s programs can be ready for tomorrow’s hardware while getting the most out of today’s hardware.
  • Fits into Existing Programs: Ct Technology allows for effective data-parallelism to be added into legacy programs using existing tools and programming languages. Ct extends C++ for data-parallelism allowing for compatible and incremental addition of parallel programming into existing programs without the need for completely new and incompatible programming languages.

CXT - C source code analysis

CXT (C Exploration Tools) consists of CFT (C Function Tree Generator) and CST (C Structure Tree Generator). They analyse C source code of applications, no matter how big or complex, and are useful to explore unknown software and to support software reuse and maintenance. By pre- processing, scanning and analyzing the source code, these programs build an internal representation of the function call hierarchy (CFT) and of the data structure (CST) relations. Several features and options allow the user to customize the generated hierarchy tree chart output and to get a large set of useful information about the source code. The results can be stored in a database and recalled later. The recall utility can be integrated into editors like BRIEF or MicroEMACS (DOS, Windows) and provides a hypertext-like feeling for function locating. The output calltree can be generated as HTML- and as RTF-file (Windows Help).

CXT is part of the SXT Software Exploration Tools which provide similar source code analysis features for C (CXT), DBASE (DXT), FORTRAN (FXT), JAVA (JXT) and LISP (LXT).

cxx2html - Create HTML Pages from C++ Header Files

cxx2html creates HTML pages from C++ header file information. It uses information from both the class declaration and the comments to create an HTML page which describes the class. The information extracted from the class declaration is used to create a class summary with links to the member function documentation and to the documentation for the classes which are parameters to the member functions. These links are created automatically from the class declaration.

cxx2html is written in Perl 5.0 (Perl 4.* will not work), and it is currently used to create the library reference manual for the AIPS++ project centered at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO).

Debea database library - Debea is an Object Relational Mapping library (ORM) for C++

Debea is an Object Relational Mapping library (ORM) for C++. It allows you to map C++ objects to relations in various SQL and file databases.

By removing hand-written SQL queries (or csv file parsing) for serialization of C++ objects you can speed-up development of applications that needs to store and load their data in SQL or other database formats. Another positive side effect of using this library is that you will always have database schema strictly related to C++ logical model.

DocClass - Generates class documentation from source files

Docclass is a simple C++ program which reads in C++ header files, and outputs documentation describing the class hierarchy, methods, inherited methods etc.

Docclass has a rather dumb parser, but it should cope with reasonably sane C++ class declarations. It understands comments, and tries to group the comments with the appropriate class or method.

Docclass does not require templates, or nested classes, as many people had C++ compilers which didn't support them. With any luck, it should understand them a little in the code it analyses, though.

Docclass is Copyright (c) Trumphurst Ltd. I have made it available on the Internet for personal use only. Please do not use it in a commercial situation (except for testing to see if it is suitable) without first obtaining permission (mail address below).

ModAssert - A library of ASSERT-like macros that can use rich booleans

In C and C++ the traditional assert function is used to tell the user that something unexpected happened, that might cause the program to fail. Macros were written to extend this mechanism, like ASSERT_EQUAL(a,b) to give a short explanation "lefthand is <9>, righthand is <10>". However, such a macros functionality can't be reused in any way if we want to have a similar VERIFY_EQUAL (which still evaluates its arguments in non-debug mode), or an ASSERT_EQUAL_MSG (to add a message).

The Modular Assert macros use Rich Booleans, to have a modular assertion framework where any type of ASSERT can be combined with any Rich Boolean or a simple boolean expression. This package has 16 different types of assertion macros (ASSERT, VERIFY, ASSERT_P, ...), which can be combined with any rich boolean to provide extra information (or a simple boolean expression). So one could write ASSERT(rbEQUAL(a,b)), VERIFY(rbLESS(foo(), 10)), etc. Furthermore, the macros allow an arbitray number of expressions to be evaluated and shown when an assertion fails. A level can be assigned to each assertion (Info, Debug, Error or Fatal). Assertions can be ignored per case, level or file.

They are released under the Boost License, which allows free use in any code. It was tested with Visual C++ and Gnu C++, but contains no platform or compiler specific code (except for the demo code), so it should be portable.

ODB - object-relational mapping (ORM) for C++

ODB is a cross-database, compiler-based object-relational mapping (ORM) system for C++. It allows you to persist C++ objects to a relational database without having to deal with tables, columns, or SQL and without manually writing any mapping code.

The C++ code that performs the conversion between persistent classes and their database representation is automatically generated by the ODB compiler. The ODB compiler is a real C++ compiler except that instead of producing assembly or machine code, it generates portable C++ which can in turn be compiled by any C++ compiler.

ODB is not a framework. It does not dictate how you should write your application. Rather, it is designed to fit into your style and architecture by only handling C++ object persistence and not interfering with any other functionality.

They allow modularization of assertions and other constructs that check conditions, so on the one hand we can have different types of assertion macros (ASSERT, VERIFY, ASSERT_MSG, ...), and on the other hand macros that replace booleans in the assertion macros to provide extra information. So one could write ASSERT(rbEQUAL(a,b)), VERIFY(rbLESS(foo(), 10)), etc. These Rich Booleans can even be reused in other situations, like a TASSERT macro in a unit testing framework, or in contracts. The macros just have to know how to handle a rich boolean.

A number of interesting rich booleans are in this library, like rbEQUAL_STRING that shows where two strings are different (taking care of mismatches and insertions in an intelligent way), and similar ones for ranges of iterators and STL containers. They can be combined to make powerful checks, like checking whether the integer values in one vector are smaller than those in another vector, comparing two vectors of vectors, or combining rich booleans with logical operations.

They are released under the Boost License, which allows free use in any code. It was tested with Visual C++ and Gnu C++, but contains no platform or compiler specific code, so it should be portable.

SNIP: A Programming Power-tool - SNIP takes in an IDL and uses it to create code according to code patterns

SNIP is a programming power-tool for generating code from rules, or "code patterns" (AKA idioms).

Sr. software engineers have often noticed patterns in their coding practices. SNIP allows those patterns to be captured and expressed in an executable template.

An IDL-like input form is used to define objects. That IDL is then applied to the template to create code that a user would normally have typed in by hand.

For more information, and an example, see the site that describes SNIP more fully at http://www.ultranet.com/~advsw

UquoniTest - A unit testing library for C++ - Unit testing framework integrating Rich Booleans and ModAssert libraries.

Some of the features provided are:
  • Assertions that can have Rich Booleans for the condition.
  • Reporting of assertions in domain code (if ModAssert is used).
  • Checking if the value of an expression is not changed by unit tests.
  • Orthodoxy testing for easily checking whether copy constructors, assignment operators and comparison operators work well.
  • Custom exception catchers give extra information if an exception specific to your codebase is thrown unexpectedly. Predefined for standard and MFC exceptions.
  • Parameterized and template tests let you reuse unit test code easily.
  • Abstract unit tests, to check whether classes derived from a common base class all satisfy the same requirements. Multiple levels of inheritance with tests on each level, and multiple inheritance are easy to do.
  • All testing is thread safe.
  • Unit tests are registered automatically.
  • Test wrappers, for all tests or just a test group.
  • Include and exclude test objects by name, level and or attribute; also using regular expressions.

The basics of UquoniTest are the same as well known open source unit testing frameworks like Unittest++. The manual is well written, with enough examples, and most skimmable so you easily find what you need.

UquoniTest has a lot more smaller features that add up to a great library to do unit testing in C++.

VCF - Visual Component Framework

A C++ framework that was created to provide a simple to use cross platform GUI framework, with many of the advanced design features of Java and Java's Swing, and Borland's Visual Component Library. In addition, the VCF provides advanced RTTI/Introspection features common in languages like Object Pascal, Objective C, Smalltalk, and Java, but not typically found in C++. The framework is divided into three main sections: FoundationKit, ApplicationKit, and GraphicsKit, in addition there are now two additional kits, the Network kit and the Remote Object Kit.

The FoundationKit provides all of the base classes for the rest of the Framework, as well as support for RTTI/Introspection, events, event listeners, properties, and basic streaming capabilities. The VCF makes use of C++'s Standard Template Library for it's collection classes, and has a number of template based classes to support the Frameworks RTTI/Introspection design. The VCF also makes use of C++ exception handling, multiple inheritance, and C++ namespaces, so compiler's that don't support these features may have problems getting the FoundationKit (and any of the other kits) to compile. The GraphicsKit provides a core set of easy to use 2D graphics classes, modeled heavily after the design of Java's Graphics2D architecture. This include support for 32bit color images, alpha channels, anti-aliased graphics primitives, basic matrix transforms, filters, image loaders, kernels, and easy to extend path classes. Image manipulation is allowed at the bit level for those who like to bit-twiddle, but higher level functions are/will be provided.

The ApplicationKit provides the classes used in the GUI portion of the Framework. This includes basics like windows, components, standard widgets (combo boxes, listboxes, trees, etc ), common dialogs, a basic layout manager, drag-and-drop, and standard windowing events. A simplified use of Model-View-Control design has been applied (sometimes referred to as UI delegate, where the Controller and View are combined ), similar to the way Java's Swing was designed. In addition it will also provide core services to extend the component framework with custom 3rd party libraries (DLL's or SO's) housing components that can be plugged into a the VCFBuilder tool, similar to Java Beans, or Borland's C++ Builder packages. The VCFBuilder is a simplified version of the C++ Builder IDE, something that can allow developer's to design their GUI's in real time, with out having to waste time writing code, and extend their set of components through 3rd party libraries.

Visual Programming Armoury - Visual Programming Armoury for C++ and Java

Visual Programming Armoury is an IDE for C++ and Java. It implements a concept of multidimensional desktop. The ergonomics of VPA helps you maintain large projects. There are 3 frameworks: C++, Persistence Smith and Java. All of them are compiler-independent structured processors of source code. C++ framework includes a designer of event-driven composite GUI and a resource editor. Persistence Smith framework is built upon the object-relational layer which allows you to interact with business objects instead of going directly to RDBMS. An extended semantics of C++ provides full-featured capability to program a back-end's logic: queries and updates are issued against the object model instead of the storage one. Diagrams of persistent class helps you design applied object model. Thus a system that uses relational database is engineered in terms of object-oriented methodology. All of your code is completely portable between variety of database products. The set of class libraries formalize GUI up to high-level primitives which query, retrieve, navigate, edit data, aid input, do printing job. Java framework supports class diagrams and reverse engineering of source code.

    XSD - XML Schema to C++ Data Binding Generator

    Given an XML instance description (XML Schema), XSD generates C++ classes that represent the given vocabulary as well as parsing and serialization code. Compared to APIs such as DOM and SAX, the generated code allows you to access the information in XML instance documents using your domain vocabulary instead of generic elements, attributes, and text. Static typing helps catch errors at compile-time rather than at run-time. XSD supports two C++ mappings: in-memory C++/Tree and event-driven C++/Parser.

    The C++/Tree mapping provides C++ classes that represent data types defined in XML Schema, a set of parsing functions that convert XML instance documents to a tree-like in-memory data structure, and a set of serialization functions that convert the in-memory representation back to XML.

    The C++/Parser mapping provides parser templates for data types defined in XML Schema. Using these parser templates you can build your own in-memory representations or perform immediate processing of XML instance documents.

    DCE++ - A C++ API for Programming Distributed Systems

    DCE++ is a set of ANSI C++ classes that enable the rapid prototyping of distributed programs. The goal of DCE++ is to provide a platform independent C++ API to the significant components used in distributed computing. Namely: RPC, threads, Security and Naming across the widely used distributed computing platforms such as DCE, ONC and WNT.

    It is expected that by encapsulating platform dependencies inherent in setting up rpcs, security etc. in DCE++ base classes, program development time can be drastically reduced. Moreover, a foundation can be provided for developing *portable* distributed program development tools.

    The second *evaluation* version of DCE++, version 0.4, has been released on Dec 2'93. The release includes C++ bindings for remote procedure calls over DCE and ONC. A C++ threads api for programming DCE threads. A C++ threads api for programming DCE distributed Time Service. The release is available free of charge upon signing a very liberal license agreement.

    The license agreement is obtainable by anonymous ftp from hal.com. It is in the directory dce++. The same directory also contains the release notes for the 0.4 version and plans for 0.5 features. To obtain the code, please send the signed license agreement to:

    C++ Data Object Library - Data structures combined with automatic persistence

    C++ Data Object Library has a wide variety of data structures combined with automatic persistence (storage to disk). In many applications, using the library is like building your own OO database. The emphasis is on high performance and protection against allocation and pointer errors. The library can help practically any C++ project, but is especially useful for large and complex software projects designs such as VLSI CAD.

    Uses a code generator. Data relations are represented as objects. Protection against pointer errors is achieved by using rings instead of NULL ending lists. Smart iterators permit to delete objects while travering lists. Several methods of storing data to disk, including memory blasting (storing entire pages of memory). Portable programs and data, schema migration. Data organizations: lists, collections, aggregates, trees, graphs, dynamic arrays, hash tables, pointer links, reference counting, many-to-many relation, dynamic properties (like in LISP), virtual (disk access is if a large array), run-time access to type tables.

    The library is build on ideas described in "Taming C++: Pattern Classes and Persistence for Large Projects", by Jiri Soukup, Addison-Wesley 1994. Sells in full source, and runs with all major compilers. A C version with similar features but with a less elegant interface is also available.

    No licence restrictions and no marketing tricks. You can ship the source of the library with your programs, except for the code generator. A complete regression test, documentation and support comes with the basic price. We are one of the oldest class libraries in business, and we stand behind our software. Prices in US$: $299 DOS,WINDOWS, or MAC $599 UNIX workstations Postage included in North America, $25 for overseas.

    C++ Toolkit - ANSI/ISO compliant cross-platform toolkit

    C++ Toolkit is an ANSI/ISO compliant cross-platform toolkit that includes:

    Database Toolkit

    The C++ Database Toolkit is a full object-oriented, cross-platform C++ solution for programmatic access to a wide range of ODBC-compliant databases.
    • Reduces the need to have multiple ODBC drivers for different databases installed on the client machines.
    • Reduces software configuration complexity because you are only required to configure and maintain your ODBC drivers in one location at the server.
    • Easy to understand C++ API that abstracts away low-level complexity, allowing for fast project ramp-up.
    • Powerful built-in C++ streaming capabilities that allow client/server interaction across multiple platforms, without the need for any vendor specific code on the client side.
    The C++ Database Toolkit is comprised of a client and server. The server makes use of the native operating system's ODBC environment to respond to the requests of various database clients. The client exposes APIs to database applications that are then portable to a wide variety of platforms.

    STL Toolkit

    STL Toolkit is a portable, high-performance implementation of the most useful portions of the ANSI/ISO Standard C++ Library. The STL Toolkit offers the following:
    • Containers - Generalized classes used to hold collections of typed objects
    • Iterators - Generalized pointers used to traverse the elements of a container
    • Algorithms - Procedures that can be applied to all or part of a container
    • String - A complete implementation of the ANSI/ISO string specification
    • Exceptions - The ANSI/ISO standard exception hierarchy.

    ETL Toolkit

    ETL Toolkit contains a unique set of collections packaged to enhance the STL. It includes Sorted Vector, Dynamic Array, Hash Table, Heap as well as List, Stack, Queue, and Set structures.
    • Sorted Vector – A dynamic array that automatically sorts itself so access is done via fast binary search with lowest access time
    • Dynamic Array – Allows writing numeric array operations without loops via operator overloading, simplifying coding by reducing code size
    • Hash Table – A complete hash table which comes with its own iterator
    • Heap – Fast, full-featured implementation of the priority queue abstract data structure which utilizes dynamic arrays
    • List, Stack, Queue, Set – These structures are implemented using a singly-linked circular list, which provides a constant time for insert/ removal operations at both ends of the list.

    Foundations Toolkit

    The Foundations Toolkit consists of three class libraries: Thread, Helper, and Time. You can install and use any combination of these three libraries independent from one another provided you have some version of the ANSI/ISO C++ Standard Library.
    • Thread Library - A C++ class library for writing portable, multithreaded applications. Supports advanced synchronization concepts, including critical sections, semaphores, barriers, monitors, and automatic change-notifying sentinels.
    • Helper Library - Non-intrusive generic extensions to the Standard C++ Library, including generic regular expression algorithms, STL helper functions, and substring support.
    • Time Library - A set of 64-bit time and date classes that support dates up to A.D. 32,766 and model time, date, time period, time zone and stopwatch.

    Communications Toolkit

    • Streaming Library - A high-performance implementation of the Universal Streaming Service, non-intrusive solution for persisting objects across heterogeneous networks s
    • Network Library - A complete set of object-oriented classes for TCP/IP-based socket programming. Also includes portable interfaces for network information services and I/O multiplexing
    • Pipe Library - A portable interface for pipe communication, a popular protocol on Microsoft Windows-based operating systems
    • File Library - The most complete class library for platform-independent manipulation of files, paths, directories, and record locks
    • Security Library - A set of object-oriented classes for manipulating users and groups
    • IO Library - A collection of common I/O facilities enabling you to write your own I/O adapters, common interface for sockets, pipes, files and IO Steams
    • Framework Library - A collection of common design pattern implementations that are used as the framework for which to build robust, scalable applications
    • UNIX Library – C++ encapsulations of UNIX processes, resources, signals, timers, System V IPC, pipes and other classes. Provides a clean, consistent C++ interface to UNIX system calls.

    Web Toolkit

    The Web Toolkit is an ANSI/ISO-compatible C++ library that contains classes for dynamically building HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) Web pages. Using the Web Toolkit, you can write Web page logic and structure using C++ objects and existing C++ interfaces without learning HTML. If you do not use a tool like the Web Toolkit when creating an application that builds Web pages, you must manually insert HTML into your code. This is not only cumbersome and error-prone, but requires that you learn HTML syntax.

    The Web Toolkit provides the following important benefits:

    • Write CGI programs in C++ while reusing existing C++ libraries and interfaces. Eliminates the need to wrap existing interfaces to implement CGI programs in a scripting language.
    • Use familiar object-oriented techniques, such as encapsulation, to manage large and complex CGI programs. This feature reduces the cost of extending and modifying CGI programs.
    • Provides helpful diagnostic output to troubleshoot invalid Web page composition.
    • Utilizes the ANSI/ISO Standard Template Library (STL) and string class. This compatibility positions code for portability and reduced long-term maintenance.

    Math Toolkit

    The Math Toolkit is a C++ class library for writing portable, computing intensive applications. These advanced C++ objects allow you to build scientific-computing applications while focusing on your domain rather than the efficiency of the mathematical operations. If performance is your goal, the Math Toolkit is your solution.

    Our Math Toolkit classes are:

    • Complex number - Representation of the real value and imaginary value of a complex number.
    • Numeric vector - Class providing the capability to represent and manipulate numerical vectors. Operations supported include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, indexing and others.
    • Numeric matrix - Class providing the capability to represent and manipulate numerical matrices.
    • Operations supported include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, indexing and others.
    • Numeric array - Class providing the capability to represent and manipulate numerical arrays. Operations supported include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, indexing and others.
    • LU factorization - Compute the lower and upper triangular matrix for a given matrix.
    • Fast Fourier Transforms - Mechanisms for computing Discrete Fourier Transform.
    • Random number generators - Mechanisms for computing random number based on various probability distributions.
    • Least squares approximation - Compute the best-fit curve for a set of data.
    • Histogram - Class providing the capability to represent and manipulate data in histograms.

    CommonView - Iconic user interface from Glockenspiel

    This is a C++ UI library. In addition, it comes with container classes. The down-side is that some of the features are not supported across all platforms.

    Richard Erwin (Erwin.Richard@service.rba.ch) writes:
    As far as I know, CA does no longer distribute/support this class library. It has no support for Win32.

    We bought a source licence of CommonView and ported parts of it to Win32 ourselves.

    Maybe you should remove CommonView from your list or indicate that there is virtually no support from CA.

    Distinct TCP/IP - TCP/IP for Windows Software Development Kit

    C++ Class Libraries for FTP, Telnet and Windows Sockets.

    Allows developers to develop TCP/IP applications without making calls directly to a C Dynamic Link Library (DLL). Applications are created using the Distinct C++ Class Libraries, which take care of establishing the connection between the client and server side of the application. All functionality normally associated with calling a TCP/IP application is taken care of by setting data members and by handling upcall events. Applications are notified of errors, connection changes and incoming data by an upcall posted by the library to the applications window, by providing a callback function to the library or by making polling calls to the library at frequent intervals.

    DV Centro - C++ graphics framework for building visual language applications

    DV-Centro provides robust graphics, event management and utilities for efficiently developing applications that use non-textual interfaces. Visual language interfaces allow programming through manipulation of graphic objects. By overlaying, juxtaposing or inter- connecting graphic objects, a user can interact and manipulate the application.

    DV-Centro is designed for creating applications such as graphical editors and visual language applications - like diagram editors, finite state machine editors, simulation and control systems, etc.

    It provides:

    • graphics classes: primitives (line, point, circle etc.), rendering (Motif, Windows, Postscript), automatic damage repair, properties (color, fill, line styles etc.), transformations (rotation, scaling, translation)
    • graphical constraint management for graphical connectivity and containment. For example, keeping lines connected to boxes while editing a diagram.
    • event handling classes for platform-independent definition of events, states and responses used to define how the system behaves.
    • mechanisms for graphical editing (n-level undo/redo, copy/cut/paste, save/restore etc.)
    • utilities: run-time type checking, memory management
    • classes to link data to graphics so you have "smart diagrams"
    • Python bindings to Centro for rapid development without long C++ compile times

    ExacMath - Quadruple Precision C++ Math Libraries

    ExacMath is a quadruple and double quadruple C++ math library that supports the Borland C++ and Microsoft Visual C++ compilers. ExacMath supports real and complex arithmetic with three floating point data types. The epsilon real data type has a 128 bit mantissa. The dpepsilon real data type has a 256 bit mantissa. The cepsilon complex data type real and imaginary components each have a 128 bit mantissa.

    ExacMath extends the capability of the Borland C++ and Microsoft Visual C++ math libraries, neither of which supports quadruple or double quadruple arithmetic. The ExacMath library of functions are the same ones found in the Borland C++ and Microsoft Visual C++ math libraries.

    ExacMath libraries support DOS, Win16, Win32, 16 and 32 bit Windows Console Applications as well as MFC programs. ExacMath has an elaborate mecanism for exception handling that allows the programmer to trap an exception error message and continue executing the program after the exception occurred. ExacMath also has a library of functions that allow for processing of RMS and MRE errors automatically.

    Comment from : STEPHEN TURATO on 2015-05-02

    THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF EXACMATH HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REWRITTEN TO VERSION 7.0. THIS NEW VERSION HAS BEEN TESTED THROUGLY AND AT THIS POINT APPEARS TO HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH IT. ANYONE USING VISUAL C++ KNOWS THE LONG DOUBLE DATA TYPE IS MISSING. THAT IS THE FLOATING POINT TYPE WITHA 64 BIT MANTISSA. MR. TURATO HAS FIGURED OUT A WAY TO OVERCOME THIS PROBLEM AND HAS CALLED THE NEW DATATYPE REAL80. IT HAS THE SAME FORMAT AS THE INTEL FPU WITH A 64 BIT MANTISSA. I WILL NOT DISCLOSE HOW I HAVE DONE THIS I WILL ONLY SAY IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW TO DO THIS YOU WILL HAVE PURCHASE THE SOURCE CODE WHICH IS WELL OVER 1 MILLION LINES OF CODE FOR ALL 4 RUN TIME LIBRARIES. IT WILL BE AVAILABLE ON EBAY AT FIRST AT A CHEAP PRICE OF $75. THE RUNTIME MATH LIBARIES ARE THE FOLLOWING: 1) duad - 106 BITS OF PRECISION 2) quad - 128 BIT OF PRECISION 3) real80 - LONG DOUBLE 64 BITS OF PRECISION 4) mpad - MULTPLE PRECISION EACH OF THE ABOVE RUNTIME MATH LIBRARIES HAS THE SAME FUNCTION AS THE VISUAL C++ MATH LIBRARIES AND SOME EXTRA ERROR COLLECTION FUNCTION AS THE MRE AND RMS ERRORS OR 2-NORMS. INCLUDED IN THE LIST OF FUNCTIONS ARE TWO FUNCTIONS THAT COMPUTE MINMAX POLYNOMIALS. THE FUNCTIONS ARE WRITTEN WITH THE MPAD DATA TYPE TO MAXIMZE THE ACCURACY OF THE RESULTS. ALONG WITH THE LIBRARIES IS AN EXCEPTION HANDLING MECHANISM THAT TEMPORARLY STOPS THE EXECUTION OF A VISUAL C++ PROGRAM WHEN SAY AN EXPONENT OVERFLOW OCCURS WHEN ADDING 2 NUMBERS. INLCUED IN THE PACKAGE WILL BE A PROGRAMMERS REFERENCE MANUAL AND A FUNCTION REFERENCE NABUAL FOR EACH DATATYPE. IF YOU ARE WONDERING HOW I COULD GET THE QUAD DATATYPE RTO WORK I USE DEKKERS ALGORITHM TO DOUBLE THE PRECISION OF A REAL80. THE DUAD DATA TYPE IS DONE THE SAME WAY. THE REAL80 DATATYPE IS WRITTEN IN OPTIMIZED X60 FLOATING POINT ASSEMBLY CODE. THE SOURCE CODE WILL BE AVAILABLE ALONG WITH THE DESIGN MANUALS FOR A PRICE OF AT LEAST $500. I HOPE TO FINISH THIS UP SOMETIME IN 2015. I WILL NOTIFY ON FACEBOOK OR THIS WEBPAGE WHEN YOU CAN DOWNLOAD SAMPLE PROGRAMS TO SEE IF YOU LIKE THE ENTIRE SYSTEM. TYPPE IN STEPHEN TURATO ON FACEBOOK TO GET THIS INFORMATION. THE SOFTWARE WILL BE AVAILABLE ON EBAY AT FIRST. I HAVE USED AND TESTED MANY RUNTIME HIGH PRECISION MATH LIBRARIES ON THE INTERNET. THEY ALL HAVE THERE PROBLEMS SUCH AS INACCURACY AND SLOW RUNNING FUNCTIONS. THESE LIBRARIES ARE NOT ONLY FAST BUT EXTREMELY ACCURATE AND USE THE METHODS IN HTE BOOK BY CODY AND WAIT.

    Comment from : STEPHEN TURATO on 2015-05-03

    THE LATEST VERSION OF EXACMATH CAN BE RUN ON WINDOWS XP, WINDOWS Y7, AND WINDOWS 8. EXACMATH 7 IS THE LATEST VERSION. IT S UNACCURACY IS UNMATCHED DUE TO A NEW METHOD POSTED IN AN ARTICLE IN TOMS IN THE EARLY 1990'S. THE METHOD USES FOR TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTION LIKE THE SIN FUNCTION A N ARGUMWENT REDUCTION FIRST FOR X OF THE COMPUTATION OF SIN(ZX). IT THEN CREATES AN INDEX THAT LOOKS UP A MINMAX POLYNOMIAL APPROXIMTION OCF THE REDUCED ARGUMENT. TEHE ANSWER FOR THE REDCUDED ARGUMENT IS THAN CALCULATED AND THE FINAL ANSWER FOR SIN(X) IS FOUND BY REVERSING THE STEPS USED TO CREATE THE REDUCED ARGUMENT. SOMETIMES IT IS ADVANTEGOUS TO USE AN IDENTITY TO COMPUTE THE REDUCED ARGUMENT. IN THAT CASE THAT IDENTITY IS USED IN THE REVERSING PROCEDURE TO CALCULATE THE FINAL ANSWER. ALGORITHMS EXISTS IN TOMS FOR SIN(X), COS(X), LOG(X), E^X AND MANY MORE FUNCTIONS. THE OVERAL RESULT IS A RUNTIME LIBRARY THAT IS EXTREMELY FAST AND ACCURATE. ACCURACY PROGRAMS WILL BE AVAILABLE RTO SHOW THESE RESULTS IN 2015. MOST OF THE TIME THE FINAL RESULTS IS EITHER EXACT OR OFF BY ONE BIT. DEKKERS ALGORITHM INVENTED BY A GERMAN MATHEMATCIAN IN 1970 IS USED FOR THE BASIC OPERATIONS SUCH AS THE SQRT(X) AND X/Y. OVERALL THE RESULTING LIBRARY WILL BE VERY USEFUL FOR RESEARCHERS IN THE FIELD WHO NEED THE LONG DOUBLE LIBRARY AND QUAD PRECISION. THE SOURCE CODE WILL BE AVAILABLE AT A HEFTY PRICE OF $500 BECAUSE THE OVERALL PRODUCT TOOK 20 YEARS OF RESEARCH, CODINFG AND DEVELOPEMENT. THERE WILL BE SEVERAL BOOKS AVAILABLE THAT EXPLAIN HOW THE LOOKUP TABLE METHOD ACTUALLY WORKS. ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE AVAILABILTY OF EXACMATH CAN BE OBTAINED BY WRITTING STEPHEN TURATO AT THE EMAIL ADDRESS s.turato@comcast.net

    Galaxy

    This is a C UI library, but it's written in an object-oriented style and is type safe for C++ use. The package includes a WYSIWYG GUI builder.

    The tools are, reportedly, pretty full-featured. User-interface items have extensive abstraction (for example, they have a confirmation-type dialog that resolves to a push-pin and 'apply' button under openlook, but 'ok', 'apply', 'cancel' buttons under motif). Objects can be positioned relative to each other (rather than merely absolute position on the screen). Also, errors are handled with an abstract exception handling framework. They support internationalization of fonts (at least Japanese), money, and data formatting.

    Some extra-cool features include memory leak detection and C-language objects for text (multi-styled, multi-font text with embedded graphics), list (spreadsheet-like for handling up to 2^31 x 2^31 cells with customizable displays), and graphics processing.

    GEMSTONE Object Oriented Database

    Briefly, GemStone is a full featured OODBMS with transaction control, multiple users, multiple platforms supported, client server architecture, active objects (ie, behavior can occur in the database as well as in the application using it), multiple language support, etc.

    GemStone is actually quite a bit more than just a data repository - it is a full-fledged DBMS that is pure OO. You can access the same database just as easily from C, C++, or SmallTalk, or you can build entire database applications inside the database server, because it is an active server that runs methods written in our DML, OPAL, which is a dialect of SmallTalk. There are also high-level tools to aid application building.

    Generic++

    Class library with container classes and basic data types for the development of portable, object-oriented applications. Actually (Feb 96) won the readers choice award of "Objekt Spektrum", which is a German SIGS publication.

    This C++ library is completely new. It is aimed at commercial users and implements a generous selection of application-independent basic classes. Its use frees the user from error-prone and time-consuming specific tasks (e.g. main memory management). All libraries previously available on the market are targeted more or less specifically on a particular system environment. However, it is becoming more and more urgent to make as many application modules as possible independent of a specific target platform. What gives Generic++ its competitive edge is the portability of its components and the way it takes account of other software engineering aspects.

    Advantages:

    • Implementation of the most important application- independent basic classes
    • Availability on all standard operating systems and platforms
    • Accommodation of the latest C++ extensions such as templates and exception handling
    • Co-existence with other libraries
    • High degree of runtime efficiency and low resource consumption
    • Integrated debugging support
    • Template-based, typesafe container classes with interchangeable implementation data structures
    • Smart cursors
    • Suitability for use in the development of client/server applications in heterogeneous networks.
    • Support for multi-threaded applications
    • Persistent objects
    • Regular expressions
    • System independent handling of file and path names

    ILOG BROKER - Distributed Object Computing

    ILOG BROKER: C++ library and preprocessor that extend the C++ language to transparently support Distributed Object Computing environments.

    Developers can make any existing linked C++ application distributed, by minimally changing their header files. A set of about 15 keywords enable ILOG BROKER's preprocessor to generate standard C++ code.

    Once the header files have been annotated, the preprocessor automatically generates the C++ source code to build the distributed application. Communication between objects is performed through the use of local surrogates calling methods on the real implementation objects across a network. The current implementation relies on RPC for the transportation layer. ILOG BROKER annotations have also been designed to generate IDL code for CORBA 2 specifications.

    ILOG BROKER does not impose the use of a dedicated server. Each object in the distributed application can be both a client and a server to and for other objects, therefore providing a true peer-to-peer programming tool.

    Cost: $5,000 per Unix-based development license. Preferred university rates available upon request.

    ILOG SERVER - C++ object server implementing real-time groupware applications

    ILOG SERVER is a C++ library and preprocessor for building reactive servers of C++ objects. It offers a client-independent external abstraction of the data, which ensures the coherence of the shared objects. Each client: - has its own API (Application Programming Interface) - only has to be concerned with the objects it manipulates - does not have to worry about other clients sharing the same objects

    ILOG SERVER is an extension of the SmallTalk Model View Controller (MVC) architecture to manipulate custom C++ objects instead of fundamental data types. Developers describe object models by annotating their header files using about 15 predefined keywords. Once the header files have been annotated, ILOG SERVER's C++ preprocessor automatically generates the appropriate C++ code.

    By extending the notion of a C++ pointer as a data member, ILOG SERVER makes it possible to easily build relationships with cardinalities between C++ classes that will automatically be maintained. This extension to C++ supports inheritance and relationships based on smart pointers.

    Cost: $5,000 per Unix-based development license. Preferred university rates available upon request. Demonstration CD-ROM available

    Libsetl - programming symbolically in C++

    Libsetl is a C++ library that is designed for supporting symbolic computing in C++. Based on a very high-level symbolic programming language (SETL), libsetl offers a number of powerful features that are available only for advanced symbolic languages. These features include latent types, high-level constructs (sets, maps and tuples), high-level operations through polymorphism, efficient iterators, runtime type checking, automatic memory management, intuitive syntax, and more. C++ programs written using libsetl do not have common C++ errors like memory leaks or memory corruptions. Runtime errors are detected and handled gracefully by using exceptions.

    Libsetl and its related files are proprietary materials. But free copies of precompiled packages are available for evaluations or education/research purposes.

    Linpack.h++ - The jewel of C++ math classes.

    Linpack.h++ includes all of Matrix.h++, plus all of the functionality in the original and well- established Fortran version; including solutions of systems of equations for a variety of matrix types, solutions of over- and under-determined systems of equations, incremental least squares solvers, etc. But, Linpack.h++ is a tru object-oriented library, not just a C version that compiles under C++: the traditional messiness of the Fortran version has been replaced with high-level, yet efficient, objects that make code far easier to write and maintain.

    Prices range from $299 to $1195

    M++

    M++ isn't as well known as the RogueWave math.h++ libraries, but it has been around for many years. It has a number of features that distinguish it from the RogueWave classes, notably improved handling of temporaries.

    M++ was explicitly designed to provide the functionality of an array language like Matlab or Gauss and it contains the Linpack, Eispack stuff found in RogueWave's Linpack.h++.

    Dyad Software, also sell modules written in M++ for doing statistical work, including linear and nonlinear least squares estimation, as well as optimization, numerical integration, and differential equations.

    MainWin - MFC on Unix (Microsoft Foundation Classes)

    Developers can develop on Unix using the MFC library as on the PC. With virtually no change to the source code compared to the PC version (typically less then 1 per 1000) they produce unix version using the MainWin libraries. Most advanced features of MFC are supported like OLE, activeX, WinInet, multithreading, common controls. The look and feel of the application on unix is either Windows or Motif, and can be changed at runtime.

    Requires the C++ compiler from the platform vendor.

    Current MFC version (as of 11/96): 4.2

    Matrix.h++ - includes all the functionality of Math.h++.

    For example: general matrices, vectors, statistics, complex numbers, Fast Forier Transformation (FFT's), etc. Matrix.h++ adds specialized matrix classes such as banded, symmetric, positive-definite, Hermitian, tridiagonal, etc. Because Matrix.h++ includes Math.h++, it can take advantage of Math.h++'s highly optimized low-level assembly routines, making it fast as well as graceful.

    Prices range from $199 to $995

    MFC Toolkit 2.0 - MFC extensions

    The Toolkit product contains MFC extensions that make the programming job easier and improve your product. Examples of this include:
    • a bitmapped button class that generates all required images from a single 16 or 256-color bitmap
    • a class that allows subclassing of windows already subclassed by MFC
    • a fully-customizable docking toolbar that extends customization even to allowing the end-user to edit bitmap images on buttons
    • a class from which you can derive your own docking splitters
    • a simple splitter window with dynamic reorientation horz/vert
    • routines to find a runtime-class structure from its ascii name, check inheritan! ce using ascii names only, etc
    These are just a few examples; the toolkit contains more than this, is shipped with an extensive HLP file and full source code, and works with both the 32 and 16-bit versions of MFC.

    MIME++ - Class library for parsing, creating, editing messages in MIME format

    Features
    • Has intuitive object-oriented architecture.
    • Designed from the beginning to permit user customization or extension through inheritance (subclassing of library classes) and polymorphism.
    • Class names are taken directly from the BNF grammars given in RFC-822 and RFC-2045.
    • Supports all MIME types and subtypes documented in RFC-2046, including multipart, message, and application types.
    • Supports quoted-printable, base64, uuencode/uudecode, and Binhex 4.0 content transfer encodings.
    • SMTP, POP, and NNTP protocols.
    • Provides high-level, wrapper classes Message, C MultipartMessage, and MessageWithAttachments that are especially easy to use. These wrapper classes also serve as examples showing how to use the basic library classes.

    MIME++ should compile with just about any C++ compiler. The system-dependent features, which are few, are isolated and identified as "portability functions."

    MtxVec - An object oriented numerical library for Cbuilder

    MtxVec is an object oriented numerical library designed for RAD. The library features several new approaches to object oriented numerics and breaks some new ground.

    Features:

    Encapsulates LAPACK 3.0 and BLAS I,II,III with Intel MKL 3.2.1 Add-on packages available: statistics and dsp. Interfaces Intel NSP for vector operations. Supports SMP for matrix operations. Single and/or double precision supported. Intel Itanium (IA64) ready. Bottom up complete support for complex numbers. Results in 50 to 100aster code then fastest possible structred code (plain procedures) written in C/C++. Design structured in three layers: procedural, object and component; ensures good scalability. Trading space for time technology. Introduces object caching. Trading safety for time technology. Allows user controllable range checking. CPU specific optimizations supporting: PI,PII,PIII. Extreme ease of use and very short time to implement. Ideal for algorithm prototyping. Built in dynamic memory management with extensive support for debugging. Allows completely matrix-vector oriented programming. Requires only CBuilder standard. Support for future CPU instruction sets, without application recompile. (DLL replacement)

    Demo (4.5 MB) includes performance and code demonstrations, trial version and complete help system.

    A new version 2.0 of MtxVec has been released..

    MtxVec adds the following capabilities to C++Builder and .NET development environment:

    • Comprehensive set of mathematical and statistical functions
    • Substantial performance improvements of floating point math by exploiting the P4 SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets
    • Improved compactness and readability of code.
    • Significantly shorter development times by protecting the developer from a wide range of possible errors.
    Typical performance improvements observed by most users are 2-3 times for vector functions, but speed ups up to 10 times are not rare. The matrix multiplication for example is faster up to 20 times. For .NET applications these factors should be multiplied by about 1.3. All comparisons are against classic floating point assembler (!).

    Key new features:

    • very fast and clean operator overloading
    • features a very large set of vectorized math functions

    NeoAccess Developer's Toolkit - Cross-platform object database engine for C++ development

    NeoAccess(TM) is a full-featured object database engine for use in Windows, Macintosh, Unix and DOS based applications. NeoAccess's feature set include: Blobs, part lists, iterators, swizzlers, temporary objects, multiple indices on a class, a powerful relational object query mechanism, a very small memory and file footprint and a streams-based I/O model. NeoAccess has the complete set of features that in-house and commercial developers need and an easy to use programming interface that hides internal complexity to keep C++ developers productive.

    In much the same way that application frameworks are used to construct the front-end of an application, NeoAccess is the framework developers use to build an application's back-end. NeoAccess is a set of C++ classes that naturally extends standard application frameworks such as Metrowerks' PowerPlant, Symantec's THINK Class Library and Apple's MacApp on the Macintosh and Microsoft's Foundation Classes, Inmark's zApp and Borland's ObjectWindows in Intel-based environments. NeoAccess is very portable and can also be used without an application framework.

    NeoAccess comes complete with full source code. The same NeoAccess source code can be used to build Windows ('95, NT and 3.x), Macintosh, Unix (all platforms) and DOS applications. The programming interface is virtually identical in all environments. NeoAccess-based applications produce single file documents that are binary-compatible across platforms. That is, a database built on one platform can be used on any other platform without conversion.

    The NeoAccess Developer's Toolkit is priced at $749 per developer with no runtime licensing fees. It includes full source code, numerous sample applications, 450+ pages of documentation, and 30 days of online technical support.

    NuGraf - Deveoper's 3D Toolkit

    The NuGraf Developer's 3D Toolkit is a powerful and general purpose 3D graphics framework (in C, but C++ type-safe) providing full-featured hierarchical database management, modeling and high-quality "photo-realistic" rendering capabilities. The toolkit is designed as a complete "drop-in" solution for third party software vendors seeking to quickly and efficiently incorporate high quality 3D computer graphics into their software packages.

    The toolkit provides all of the necessary components to build a complete interactive 3D modeling and rendering system. These components include a state-of-the-art "photo-realistic" renderer, modeling and database management, coordinate space mapping, object and polygon picking, automatic smoothing and processing of raw polygonal data (useful for DXF file import), as well as optimized wireframe output for fast interactive data manipulation.

    The toolkit also handles all aspects of the 3D rendering process, alleviating the host application from dealing with such mundane tasks as error handling and recovery, color output conversion (for those output devices with few colors) and file/display output. It features all of the functionality normally associated with a high-end rendering system but neatly packaged into componentized modules.

    NuGraf is ideally suited for:

    • Inclusion into CAD packages which have a graphical user interface and existing 3D modeling capabilities, but no rendering features.
    • 3D applications with weak or older renderers, or those that depend upon slow ray tracing.
    • 3D applications which currently use real-time, medium quality renderers such as Open GL or 3DR.
    • Developers writing 3D modeling applications which require powerful rendering capabilities, color conversion and scanline output to various devices.
    • Any developer wishing to create a 3D modeling and rendering system from the ground up.
    • 3d font creation programs.
    Pricing: Development licences = $3500 for "Application Builder" version, $995 for "Render Extender" version. Royalties apply for commercial applications developed with the toolkit.

    Highly portable, inquire about other platforms. Please refer to WEB site for further information, online API spec, extensive slide show and pricing.

    OptSolve++ - Software components for nonlinear optimization (formerly LION++)

    The OptSolve++ class libraries provide a convenient and extensible interface for nonlinear optimization of user-specified functions.

    The following multidimensional algorithms have been implemented:

    • nonlinear simplex (no derivative required)
        Powell (no derivatives required) -- uses Brent line search
          conjugate gradient (requires gradient of function) -- uses modified secant line search
            Levenberg-Marquardt -- for nonlinear least squares problems -- uses Broyden's method to estimate the Jacobian if function gradients are not available
              bound constraints (uses variable transformation approach)
            OptSolve++ also includes a reference counted linear algebra library.

            The next release will include algorithms for:

            • general nonlinear constraints, using a penalty function approach
                multidimensional nonlinear solvers for root-finding Compiled versions of OptSolve++ are available to beta-testers for 17 OS/compiler combinations. Much of the source code is also available.

                Open Interface Version 3.0

                This is a C-based UI library, but type-safe for C++ compatibility. The software also comes with a WYSIWYG GUI builder.

                They include tons of extra widgets like business graphics (bar, pie, and line charts), images (all standard formats), and hypertext help.

                Other software in Open Interface includes international character support, multi-font support, full printer support, memory management, file I/O support as well as Windows DDE support (the latter is, of course, non- portable).

                They also have a product called Nexpertobject, which is an expert systems tool intended for GUI development.

                rxstring - Regular expression library.

                The rxstring library is an extension of the C++ stdlib string class. The rxstring class is a powerful alternative to traditional regular expression libraries. Because the syntax used by traditional regular expression packages is difficult to learn, rxstring uses a alternative notational system that is much easier to learn to read and write. Because indirection is a fundamental programming technique, rxstring regular expressions can be nested within each other using labels. Also the regular expressions can be self referential, this makes it possible to write very powerful regular expressions that can validate input just as a recursive descent parser does, but without the hassle of hand coding or resorting to a tool like yacc or bison. rxstring has much more than the usual search and match functions, There are a large number of functions that aid in validating, parsing, and modifying text. In spite of the number of functions, there is an underlying system that makes it easy to recall the entire library off the top of your head without much effort.

                Time Series API - Professional time series modelling and simulation library for C++

                Time Series API is a professional C++ class library for simulating (backtesting) and deploying financial trading strategies as well as general purpose time series modelling. The library is a stand-alone time series engine that can be extended via a component object model. Models are defined using 'formula syntax and semantics' made possible by a set of lightweight interface classes that supersede the component framework. The library supports the modelling of even the most complex ideas, is easily extended, and supports deployment in any timeframe (variable or fixed, with intervals as short as one millisecond). The library also benefits from a set of highly optimized database classes for reading and writing millions of records in seconds. As a general purpose tool for modelling time series, Time Series API has applications in many domains, such as:
                • Trading and investment strategy simulation and deployment:
                  • Individual market and inter-market models
                  • Iterative evaluations on baskets
                  • Evaluation on aggregates (e.g. custom indices)
                  • Fundamental company data models
                • Economic modelling
                • Time series normalization and processing:
                • Normalizing neural training data
                • Data transformations
                • Timeframe conversions
                • Data monitoring (e.g. financial, scientific):
                  • Notification
                  • Pattern recognition
                  • Filtering applications, (e.g. noise reduction)
                • Computational modelling

                Comment from : Jean-Daniel NICOLET on 2011-12-15

                Tools.h++ was once one of the best general purpose C++ library available. Its container classes were well-designed, offering template-based as well as non-template based classes. Its string and container classes have nowadays been superceded by the standard library, which offers essentially the same (and even better) features essentially for free. Two things remain interesting with Tools.h++: its persistence mechanisms, coupled with portable streams allowing to transport objects accross platforms, and its associated twin library, DbTools.h++, that was ahead of its time for allowing portable database access with a C++ way of defining SQL-like queries, based on template meta-programming tricks that were totally non popular at that time.

                Undoable C++ Object Library - multi-level undo and transaction rollback

                The Undoable C++ Object Library by Notation Software, Inc. supports multiple level undo and transaction rollback.

                This C++ library implements an object-oriented approach for reversing transactions at the C++ object level. A transaction consists of a series of three types of operations on objects: creation, modification, and deletion. The reversal (undo) of the transaction is implemented by effectively deleting the originally created objects, restoring the state of the modified objects, and effectively re-creating the deleted objects. References between objects are properly restored. This approach can significantly reduce the cost of implementing multiple level undo in an application, compared to a ! procedural "reverse transaction" approach. Object level undo also supports transaction rollback in other scenarios such as caught C++ exceptions.

                The $495 product includes a 100-page tutorial and over 300 pages of documentation in helpfile and printed format. A free demonstration version of the library can be downloaded from the Web site listed below.

                Vettrasoft Z Directory - General-purpose library of c++ objects

                The Z Directory (as of 2010) currently deals with the following subject matter:
                • object - database storage. You can store and retrieve objects, so their state can extend beyond the lifetime of a program's run. This is not the same as an o-o database. The Z Directory provides a simple mechanism for writing objects to a database, but it does not supply the database.
                • data representation. "Data bags" are a way to store data in text stings. The data may be put into lists or a matrix and can recurse. The format is defined by a meta-data schema. This may sound suspiciously like XML. Once again, the data bag concept pre-dated XML, having existed in the early- to mid-1990's. Whereas XML focuses on HTML and web applications, data bags are to be used by programs written in C++.
                • message transport. The problem of moving a block of bytes from one place to another is a major topic in software engineering usually assigned to the category of networks. the Z Directory has code to do it with the following defining characteristics: (1) an address class set is provided to address the topic of defining a location. There are many types of addresses: internet, web, computer memory, e-mail, postal, etc. (2) the interface for moving a block of data over a circuit (a path between an originating and destination address) has no reference to the implementation. Typically the mechanism is sockets, but with the Z Directory, this can also be via shared memory (if within the same host computer), TLI (if within a system V unix environment), or other transport system.
                • containers. The Z Directory provides template-based containers to store your data: linked lists, arrays, stacks, and [coming soon] trees. You will probably immediately think STL. the Z Directory's container interface is a bit different, and you might find, simpler. The same member function names are used irregardless of the implementation. Peering into your data in a debugger is much easier than with STL. There are other differences.
                • string and text processing. One common complaint opponents of C++ use is the lack of tools for managing strings. The Z Directory attacks and destroys this argument. String operations include regular expression searches; extracting words, sentences, and quoted text sub-strings; trimming lines; string to type conversion; monetary formatting; concatenation; white-space processing; and much more.
                • encryption. There are a number of encryption and decryption algorithms available for encrypting your data, including Chambers-Rantgen, DES, and Blowfish.
                • postal addresses. Strings containing addresses can be easily parsed. Currently only American addresses are fully handled. We expect to grow this to encompass all addressing formats used world-wide.
                • mathematics. Several math functions are provided, including factoring, modulus, GLB and LUB, summation of a series, random number generation, linear regresion, mean averages, standard deviations, angle math and conversion (degree - radian), etc.
                • time and date. If you ever need to get the current time/date, and then add or subtract a span of time to/from it, the Z Directory provides unparalled ease for that. You can add say 1 week 3 days and 15 hours to any given date and get the result with only a couple lines of code.
                • threads and semaphores. In a Microsoft environment, you would need to use functions such as CreateMutex(), WaitForSingleObject(), and ReleaseMutex(). In some unix environments, the corresponding calls would be pthread_mutex_init(), pthread_mutex_lock(), and pthread_mutex_unlock(). Or, you can use the Z Directory and use a single function call, instead of learning the specifics for each operating system to intend to port to.
                • clients and servers. There are a set of classes dealing providing client-server architecture. A dispatch mechanism forwards a message to your message processing code when it arrives to a server.
                • error processing, logging, tracing and debugging. An elaborate but general-purpose group of classes help you manage what to do in case of an error, above and beyond the simple mechanics embedded in c++. You can create event logs and control when a message is to be generated. You can control when a message is created, and to where it is to go.
                • Files and directories. In Microsoft, directories are called folders. Once again, by using the Z Directory you need not concern yourself with the specifics of any particular operating system. How to read the contents or traverse them is handled by a simple set of classes and routines in the Z Directory. Creating, removing, renaming, opening and closing a file or directory are handled in a portable fashion. You can do things like add text to a file, get a line of text or a specific number of characters.
                • more, including: e-mail management; exam questions and answers; money operations; packetization; HTML operations; and classes for worldy items such as people, businesses, and telephones.

                One fact: Z Directory is devoid of graphics utilities. Writing tools for GUI programming is a specialized, big, never-ending work sink. We have decided to focus on more 'framework' issues. Also, there are plenty of libraries out there dealing with GUIs and graphics.

                Visibility for C++ - Create Windows GUI's without using any UI code

                Visibility for C++ is a revolutionary new product for creating user interfaces. It enables object systems written in C++ to be visualized and interacted with via a state of the art GUI on the Windows platform and it accomplishes this without requiring any UI code to be written, generated or otherwise created. User Intefaces that would normally take weeks or even months to create, can be created in no time at all.

                Visibility for C++ is the first in a series of products that utilize a new technology called Outerfacing. This new technology embodies a powerful new paradigm for creating User Interfaces for object systems called Object Visualization. This paradigm replaces the Model-View-Controller (MVC) paradigm on which almost all current UI technology is based. By utilizing the inherent structure found in an object system, it eliminates the need for the View and Controller portions of the MVC paradigm and all its attendant code requirements. In their place Object Visualization gives the objects in the object system the inherent ability to be visualized and interacted with directly.

                Instead of having to write large amounts of UI code to implement the view and controller as is required with the MVC, Object Visualization places an outer face of UI elements over the object system structure and utilizes the internal state of the objects to control their appearance and behavior. This enables the entire UI for an object system to be created interactively while the program is executing without having to write any code.

                Since creating the UI often accounts for over half of the entire programming effort, we firmly believe that this new paradigm is going to revolutionize the way that User Interfaces are developed.

                Warne's Garbage Collector (WGC)

                WGC is a full-featured high-performance C++ memory manager that includes:
                • an incredibly fast explicit memory manager (drop-in new/delete)
                • a parallel incremental generational non-copying collector
                • a transparent just-in-time heap-checker
                WGC's fast explicit memory manager provides a drop-in accelerated new/delete. Using a multi-tiered parallel algorithm with the first tier inline, WGC can allocate most objects inline in less than 10 instructions! To enhance space efficiency WGC uses address-aligned storage algorithms with no per-object overhead (no linked lists!). To reduce fragmentation, WGC maintains a single process free store for all threads, modules, and DLLs.

                WGC's collector implements both conservative and accurate scanning and fully supports C++ code. Classes, arrays, scalars, interior pointers, unions, cross-heap pointers, anonymous unions (really!), large objects, library code you have no control over, etc. are all supported. Plus, you can incrementally deploy automatic memory management in existing or new applications, making some classes or objects collected and some not.

                WGC's just-in-time heap-checker stays active during the entire development cycle, transparently checking every new and delete. If a check fails, WGC will spawn your debugger and take you live to the line in question. To complement the live access to the line that failed a delete check, WGC provides detailed pointer/object info (allocating thread/line/file/pass count, object allocation time in microseconds, etc.) Debugging extensions allow interactive display/logging of object/pointer status and process stats.

                WGC is currently available for all major C++ compilers under Windows NT, Windows 95, and OS/2. WGC is priced at $895 per developer for all platforms, with no royalties. Team & Volume discounts apply. Source available. Ports to other platforms in progress.

                Hans Boehm tells me that this is no longer available.

                WinSockets++ 1.1 - A C++ class library for WinSockets.

                This is more than just a wrapper for the WinSockets calls. It provides higher-level functions that make reading/writing to sockets very easy. Additionally, the Async aspect of the library makes using the asynchronous functionality of WinSockets *very* easy and your code *very* clean.

                It costs $50 which includes full source.

                Zinc V4.1

                This is a full C++ class library that comes with the Zinc Designer (a WYSIWYG GUI builder). Their classes include some graphic capabilities, a rather nice error system, and a portable, if rudimentary, help system. Also included is the source for the library (and for the Designer!).

                In addition to the usual GUI stuff, Zinc also provides international character support (an extended version, for extra bux, is in the works), some container classes, and filesystem portability. They also allow you to incorporate platform-specific stuff (e.g., system messages) into their API; but, of course, you're on your own when it comes to porting any additions. The main new feature for 4.1 is object persistence. , (800) 638 8665, (801) 785-8900, (801) 785-8996 (fax), (801) 785-8997 (bbs)
