ObjectBuilder - GUI library

ObjectBuilder includes the Object Interface (OI) class library which is a
C++ object-oriented implementation of both Motif and Openlook interfaces.
Note that interested parties can read more about the OI library in the
1300 page "OI Programmer's Guide" by Gary Aitken and Amber Bensen
published by Prentice-Hall.

ObjectBuilder is a GUI that offers developers a complete C++
implementation of Motif. ObjectBuilder allows developers to rapidly
design, test, modify and implement sophisticated object-oriented graphical
user interfaces by using ObjectBuilder to manipulate C++ objects found in
its Object Interface (OI) C++ class library.

ObjectBuilder features a drag-and-drop user interface that allows
developers to immediately visualize the results of their user interface
design.

ObjectBuilder is owned and supported by Openware Technologies, Inc..
Formerly owned by ParcPlace Systems, Openware recently acquired
ObjectBuilder.

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.

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.

ViewKit ObjectPak - application framework for developing OSF/Motif and CDE applications using
C++

ViewKit includes generic application classes, menu, dialog, and preference
classes; as well as ToolTalk and UNIX process control systems.

ViewKit ObjectPak builds on the C++/Motif programming methods established
by Doug Young in his book "Object-Oriented Programming with C++ and
OSF/Motif".  ViewKit ObjectPak provides a variety of ready-to use
components and enables developers to easily extend ViewKit by creating new
component classes.  With these high-level components, ViewKit ensures
consistency throughout a family of applications, and promotes
enterprise-wide software reuse.  In addition, ViewKit supports easy and
effective communication between applications by using ToolTalk(tm), the
CDE standard for inter-application messaging.

ViewKit ObjectPak is available in binary and source form.  Originally
developed by Silicon Graphics, ViewKit is now available through ICS for
most UNIX platforms.

ICS has distributors in the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden,
Israel, Korea, Japan, and Australia.

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.
