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.

Regex++ - C++ template regular expression library

A regular expression library for C++ which handles both char and wchar_t types. Template search/match/grep functions allow for the searching of any bi-directional iterator type, making seemless searches of non-contiguous data possible. Customised traits classes allow for localisation and almost endless customisation if required. The library is freely available, and comes with full documentation + demo applications + regression tester.

Should work with any compiler supporting templates, on any operating system.

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

SOCI is a database access library for C++ that makes the illusion of embedding SQL queries in the regular C++ code, staying entirely within the Standard C++. The idea is to provide C++ programmers a way to access SQL databases in the most natural and intuitive way.

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.

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).

Special requirements: IBM compatible 386 PC.

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.)

tvmet - A Tiny Vector Matrix library using Expression and Meta Templates.

This Tiny Vector and Matrix template library uses Meta and Expression Templates to evaluate results at compile time, thus making it fast for low-end systems. Temporaries are avoided because of this. The dimensions are static and bounded at compile time.

More generaly this can be a replacement/extension to blitz++ tiny matrix and tiny vector classes (If you know it from blitz++ probably you will have no problems on using it).

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.

The YAMI stands for "Yet Another Messaging Infrastructure" and is a portable library that helps to write network and distributed programs. The library is centered around the idea of Object Request Broker (ORB, like in CORBA) and provides the asynchronous communication model with dynamic interfaces. The library is portable in the sense of supported platforms and in the sense of supported languages (C, C++, Python, Tcl). The library is also very lightweight -- after compilation takes about 100kB. As an additional tool for C++ programmers, the YDL compiler is provided for processing static interface descriptions and generating C++ stubs and skeletons for staticly typed systems.

YARD (Yet Another Recursive Descent) Parser - A pure C++ R-D parsing library with a built in BNF meta-language.

The YARD library provides a simple meta-language for expressing recursive descent parsers as types, using a notation which closely resembles BNF syntax. Recursive descent parsers are useful for recognizing patterns which can be expressed as context free grammars (CFG's).

The YARD library is distributed using the Boost License version 1.0 and can be used, modified and redistributed freely.

YARD is designed to be as portable as possible but is designed primarily to work on GCC 3.4.

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).
