MATCOM - Matlab to C++ translator and matrix library

MATCOM V2 translates Matlab source files (M-Files) to C++ source code. The
resulting code is linked with the supplied C++ Matrix class library to
create MEX files or stand alone executables.

The C++ code and library can be integrated in products, royalty free,
saving the need to translate the algorithm prototype.

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.

The Matrix Library is designed for signal processing and data
manipulation. The Matrix class is written with generic code, allowing you
to use the matrix operators on various data types, including the Complex
data type (default is double). One of its useful features is the ability
to plot matrix data using the free software gnuplot. You can download the
postscript documentation matrix.ps.gz [133 Ko] alone or dowload the
complete package (including the documentation and the Complex library)

Matthew's Galib - A C++ Genetic Algorithm Library

GAlib is a C++ library that contains a set of genetic algorithm objects.
With GAlib you can add genetic algorithm optimization techniques to your
program using any data representation and many different genetic algorithm
operators. The library includes genomes based upon binary string, array,
tree, and list data structures, and you can create your own genomes by
simply deriving a new class from the base genome and any data structure
that you may be using already. Many scaling, selection, termination,
initialization, mutation, and crossover methods are included in the
library, and you can override any of the defaults with operators.of your
own design.

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.

Objtran and Objdce

Objtran is a set of C++ class libraries that provide a higher-level
abstraction for programmers developing applications using OSF's DCE and
Transarc's Encina. Objtran actually consists of two separate libraries --
Objdce and Objtran.

Objdce makes it easier to write DCE applications by abstracting some of
the more complex aspects of DCE. A class is included that can manage an
RPC server, interacting with the DCE Name Service and Security Service as
desired. Another class manages a client's binding to a server and
encapsulates Name Service lookups.  Other classes allow the programmer to
use threads and various forms of mutual-exclusion locks, report errors
consistently, utilize Access Control Lists, handle timestamps from the DCE
Time Service, and perform UUID manipulation.

Objtran is built on top of Objdce, and adds support for the Encina
distributed transaction service. It is intended to be used with C++
programs instead of the "Transactional C" macro package. It fully
encapsulates the Encina TRAN and TRPC facilities with a few easy-to-use
classes. It also provides an efficient recovery service for proper control
of distributed transactions, and has support for the TM/XA service,
allowing interoperability with XA-compliant databases. Support for the
Encina Monitor is being implemented so programs may, with very few code
changes, use either the smaller and more efficient bare Objtran
environment or the more sophisticated Monitor.

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

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.

    library and header files for Convex.  AT&T C++ release 2.1 compatible.
  - PDBLib.1.0.Alpha.tar.Z  Compressed tar file of PDB object classes
    library and header files for Dec 3000 (Alpha AXP) with OSF1. Dec C++ (cxx)

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.)

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.
