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.

Aisearch -  a package to make writing problem solving programs easier.

Offers the programmer a set of search algorithms that may be used to solve
all kind of different problems. The following search algorithms have been
implemented:
  - depth-first tree and graph search
  - breadth-first tree and graph search
  - uniform-cost tree and graph search
  - best-first search
  - bidirectional depth-first tree and graph search
  - bidirectional breadth-first tree and graph search
  - AND/OR depth tree search
  - AND/OR breadth tree search.

Although this package is meant as a tool for developing problem solving
software it is not meant exclusively for programmers that are familiar
with the concept of problem representation and search techniques. The
document accompanying this package first describes (though condensed) the
theory of problem solving in AI and next explains how the search class
library must be used. Furthermore, as the source code is richly commented
and as also some demo programs are included the package should also prove
useful to people that want to get acquainted with the subject.

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.

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.

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++SIM 1.5.2 - A simulation package written in C++.

C++SIM provides discrete process based simulation similar to that provided
by the simulation class and libraries of SIMULA. The linked list
manipulation facilities provided by SIMSET are also included in the
package, and there is support for a variety of statistics gathering
classes.

The simulation package requires the use of a threads package and currently
only works with the following:
  - Sun's lwp threads and Solaris threads
  - C++ task library
  - NT threads
  - Posix threads
  - cthreads
  - Rex threads

 It has been build on a number of different architectures and C++
compilers, and porting to other systems should be relatively easy.

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.

Callbacks - Inter-component callbacks using functors

This library provides a comprehensive, portable, type-safe, efficient,
general purpose mechanism for inter-component callbacks using template
functors. Full source code and examples.

A complete rationale and description of this mechanism appeared in my
article in the February 1995 issue of the C++ Report (now reprinted in
'C++ Gems', SIGS Books).  Users are strongly encouraged to read the
article before proceeding, as the library has minimal embedded
documentation at present.

CB++ - CommonBase Database Access Library for C/C++

This library was written in 1989 as a basis for storing C++ objects in a
relational database. The development of such a system was stopped in 1990
because of problems with the MS-DOS environment used in this time. My
involvement in various user interface projects here in the institute and
otherwhere made it sleep until last week.

Okay, here is it. It is only the database access layer of the projected
object storage system but it has some useful features which are provided
by commercial tools out there:
  - Builds on the C language interface of a database, there is no need for
    a precompiler (like embedded SQL - which is totally unusable in
    combination with C++, at least it was three years ago...)
  - Very simple to use. Unlike the native C interfaces of the databases it
    is as simple as embedded SQL or some 4th generation languages.
  - Makes applications portable among different SQL databases. The library
    itself is relatively easy to port as the database vendor specific code

that the system can be extended as a communal effort and am piloting this
idea in the C++ course at the Globewide Network Academy

Version 1.3 will be posted shortly including an experimental script

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.

CIDLib - C++ framework for Windows NT 4.0 and Visual C++ 5.0

I am proud (and frankly exhausted :-) to announce the newest release of
the CIDLib Class Libraries for C++. CIDLib is a fully object oriented
C++ framework for Windows NT 4.0 (or higher) and Visual C++ 5.0 (or
higher.)

This beta release (Version 0.500) does not contain the original GUI and
graphics oriented classes because they have not been fully ported to
NT yet. However, since the product has so much to offer for backend
developers without the GUI layers, I've decided to go ahead and do this
beta release in order to get feedback from users.

Even in this 'limited' form CIDLib provides just short of 175 public
classes (and of course more that you don't see.) When the graphics and
GUI layers are released in the next version, the class count will be
closer to 250.

This release provides these broad categories of functionality:
  - Core classes: Strings, memory buffers (heap, system, and shared),
  areas (floating point and integral coordinate), points, sizes, colors.
  - Collections: Bags, sorted bags, deques, queues, stacks, linked
  lists, hash maps, hash sets, object arrays, fundamental arrays.
  - File System Support: Directory iteration, general file system
  maintenance, find buffers, path strings, binary files, text files,
  volume information.
  - Streams: File, string, and memory streams for text and binary
  operations, powerful text stream parser. Extensible data sink/source
  framework. Console text stream derivative that supports command line
  recall and editing. Support for ASCII and UNICode text formats.
  - Advanced RTTI: Polymorphic streaming, dynamic object creation,
  runtime type information, type repository, and meta classes.
  - Exceptions and Logging: Extensive and extensible support for error
  and message logging and exception management, runtime error and
  system exception stack trace dumps.
  - Locale and Internationization Support: Locale classes and a totally
  C++ enabled, message file system that supports multiple languages and
  uses namespace based const values for error and message ids.
  - Process Control: Thread classes, thread priority janitors, mutexes, 
  semaphores, events, critical sections, process registry, extensible
  metrics system, janitors for mutexes, critical sections, semaphores.
  - Mathematical: 4x4 matrices, 2D and 3D vectors, value maps, ranges.
  - Ray Tracing: Object oriented, extensible ray tracer with scene
  description language, multithreaded support, for parallel rendering.
  - Fractals: An object oriented, extensible fractal generation engine,
  with full multithreaded rendering. Supports pluggable rendering
  engines and fractal types. Comes with single and multithreaded
  rendering engines and Julia, Mandelbrot, and Lyapunov fractal types.
  - Raw Access: Namespace encapsulated access to raw strings and memory
  buffer APIs, and one for basic mathematical operations. These are not
  often needed by the outside world but are pulically available.
  - General Purpose Methods. Typesafe, template or inline methods for
  many common operations such as bit field manipulation, min/max,
  pointer manipulation, array sizing, enumeration magic, UNICode buffer
  manipuluation, etc...
  - Documentation: Class and member docs are online and available via
  my home page. Offline docs are in MS Word 6.0 format. The online docs
  fully cover all of the released classes, though they are spotty on
  coverage of exceptions thrown right now. Offline docs are in progress
  but contain a substantial amount of informaton.
  - Full Source Code. The full source code is included so you can modify
  the system for your own needs if desired and debug fully.
 
CIDLib is a freeware product at this time and you can freely use it for
personal, experimental, or in house development, however it is a beta

Complex class - Very complete complex generic class

The Complex Library gives you the possibility to do complex arithmetic as
simply as real arithmetic in your C++ sources. The class Complex is
designed with generic code, allowing you to do single or double floating
point arithmetic (default is double). All the algorithms favour numerical
stability first and speed secondly. You can download the postscript
documentation complex.ps.gz [40 Ko] alone or dowload the complete package

CSock C++ Socketing Library - An advanced wrapper for Windows socketing

An advanced wrapper for Windows socketing.  Uses newer C++ language
extensions
to shred the amount of code required for socketing applications.

All the standard Windows socketing wrapper classes usually implemented,
and
then:
  - Insertion and extraction operators are templatized so you won't have
    to
implement new ones.
  - Address type classes are polymorphic and also templatized -- one line
    to add
a new one.
  - Ability to dynamically load WINSOCK at runtime, in case TCP/IP is
    not
installed.
  - Quite easy to port.

$20.00 U.S. shareware license entitles registered users to updates through
version 2.99.
FTP functionality is already partially complete.

Distributed as source code. Should work with any compiler that supports
exceptions, templates and new cast operators.

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.

GINA++ - An O-O application framework for C++, X11R5, and OSF/Motif

 GINA++ (The Generic INteractive Application for C++) is an object-
oriented application framework that facilitates the development of
applications with a graphical user interface. It is written in C++ and
uses OSF/Motif and X for the user interface parts. GINA++ comes as a
library of C++ classes, 10 small to medium demo applications, and it is
fully documented.

 Components of GINA++ are:
  - A C++ encapsulation of OSF/Motif providing easy-to-use mechanisms for
    deriving new widget classes completely in C++
  - Support for object-oriented graphics (rectangles, arrows, circle,
    etc)
  - An unlimited undo/redo history mechanism
  - supporting classes for data structures (list, arrays, etc), run-time
    type information, and a notification mechanism.

The classes of GINA++ constitute an executable program - the generic
application - which possesses the basic functionality and the user
interface components common to all interactive graphical applications, but
lacks any application-specific behavior. The predefined functionality and
behavior is inherited by deriving subclasses from the existing GINA++
classes. Application specific behavior is implemented by adding new
classes and member functions. Differences to the standard application are
coded by refining virtual member functions inherited from GINA++.

LEDA, - A Library of Efficient Data Types and Algorithms

Provides basic data-types like lists, stacks, queues, trees, sets,
partitions, priority queues and a few others. 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.

 It can be used with C++ compilers which understand templates

libg++ - (GNU's C++ library)

Libg++ is probably only relevant if you are using g++; and if so, you
already know about it. It does have some good implementations of bignum's
and of regular expressions and strings.

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.

  - PC Windows 3
  - Unix

LinAlg.shar - basic linear algebra classes and applications

basic linear algebra classes and applications (SVD, interpolation,
multivariate optimization)

The package contains declarations of Matrix, Vector, subMatrix over the
real domain, and *efficient* and fool-proof implementations of level 1 & 2
BLAS (element-wise operations + various multiplications), transpositions
and determinant evaluation/inversion. There are operations on a single
row/col/diagonal of a matrix.

The "new style" of returning matrices (via LazyMatrix) and filling them
out.

New in the Jan 1996 version: extended to include singular value
decomposition (SVD) and its applications to (a regularized) solution of
simultaneous linear equations (with possibly rectangular matrices) and
(pseudo)matrix inverse.

This version of LinAlg.shar also includes Aitken-Lagrange interpolation
over the table of uniform or arbitrary mesh, and a Hook-Jeevse local
multidimensional minimizer, formerly of hl_vector.shar package.

Matrix/Vector/etc classes are expanded with new methods.

More attention to Matrix/Vector promises.

The code is made cross-platform compatible (compiles both under UNIX and
on a Mac).

See LinAlg.h for the complete list of classes and functions, and
vmatrix.cc, vvector.cc, etc. test drivers as to how the features can be
used. See README for hints.

This public domain portable C++ library is the bas - MozillaV3 CGI C++ Library

This public domain portable C++ library is the basis of a CGI. It contains
all external aspects that should be required by a CGI  script, from
options to hash containers. It provides one minute  implementation of
hours of work and allows optimal performance  and ease of use. Writing a
guestbook using this library which can be used by as many people as wanted
is a question of minutes! This  Mozilla-V3 library is in a state of
providing all internal structures  to write virtually any kind of html
output CGI.

This library was written for an HTML based forum (called aGNeS) that is
successfully running for hundreds of users all over the world. It is open
for all suggestions and modifications.
