Ptypes - C++ Portable Types Library
PTypes (C++ Portable Types Library) is a simple alternative to the
STL that includes multithreading and networking. It defines dynamic strings, character sets, lists, and other basic data types along with threads, synchronization and IP sockets. PTypes also offers message queues as an alternative method of thread synchronization. Its main `target audience' is developers of complex network daemons, robots or non-visual client/server applications of any kind.
PTypes defines simple and intuitive interfaces. It is portable across many modern operating systems (Currently FreeBSD, Linux, SunOS, Mac OS X and Windows). All platform-dependent issues are hidden inside. A simple web server called wshare is included in the package to demonstrate the full power of PTypes.
And finally, PTypes is open and free.
