C++ component search engine - Searches C++ Libraries FAQ for components

This is a Web page containing a Java search engine which searches the C++
Library FAQ for libraries or components which match your criteria.

I have tried this myself, and it is a very neat Web page. It even plays
music to you while the search progresses!

Just select "Search Library", then enter your search string and press
return.

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).

MkHelp - Generate HTML documentation from source files

Pretty good beta level documentation generator.
Generates fully cross-referenced class descriptions from .i files output
by your compiler's preprocessor. Can extract comments from the source code
and include them in the documentation (comments have to be immediately
before the class, variable or method).
Pretty configurable - can generate the files in any language, for
instance.
Has a few problems with some apparently correct syntax, and does not
document typedefs, enums or global variables.

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

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:

MenuPlus - Menu class library for Turbo C++ for DOS

The library contains functions that allow the programmer to
easily implement custom popup, pulldown, and buttonbar menus.
The menus are designed to have the look and feel of familiar menu
systems found in many popular applications.  MenuPlus provides all
screen, keyboard, and mouse functionalilty built in.  Simply
declare a menu object (menu item names, hotkeys, and handler
functions) and MenuPlus does the rest.  MenuPlus is designed to
be simple to use, yet versatile enough to allow customized look
and operations of the menus.  (Includes demos illustrating use.)

Registration of $15 grants royalty-free use of the
library and also provides registered owner with all source code.

Bruce Eckel - Thinking in C++

eckelt03.zip contains the source code for Bruce Eckel's book "Thinking in
C++" (Prentice-Hall 1995, ISBN: 0-13-917709-4).  This is the complete set
of source code files from the book, including corrections after the book
was published.  The package only contains ASCII text files.  They were
prepared and tested with a number of compilers under DOS/Windows, and are
intended to represent the correct language implementation at the time of
their creation, rather than a particular compiler.  However, please be
aware that the C++ language is still a draft standard, and some language
elements are still subject to small changes.  The package is distributed
as copyrighted freeware (you can use the code, and redistribute the
package, but you cannot distribute modified versions of the package or
portions of the package).

Special requirements: Compressed from the original DOS directory structure
using PKZIP 2.04g.  When you unzip the package, use the -d flag to create
directories and maintain the directory structure.

Changes: Includes errata sheets for the first printing of the book
(corrected in the second printing).

eckelt03.zip has replaced eckelt01.zip (distributed on CIS & AOL).
