macstl - Modern generic programming for SIMD and the Mac

The C++ header library designed to bring the Macintosh into the world of modern generic programming.

Generic programming is the art -- some say, the black art -- of making software components super-reusable and yet ultra-efficient. Our tool is the C++ template, and our result is code nearly as fast as hand-coded machine language.

macstl was inspired by the premier generic library, the Standard Template Library (now part of the C++ Standard Library), but with a distinct Macintosh flavor. Many components let you use low-level Mac OS X functionality like SIMD acceleration and memory copy-on-write easily and intuitively.

Although macstl started on the Mac, it now has a cross-platform look. Over 14,000 source lines of code compile cleanly on different C++ compilers. The SIMD classes work seamlessly on PowerPCís running Mac OS X and Pentiumís running Windows XP.

macstl provides these sets of classes:

  • valarray -- numeric arrays highly optimized for SIMD architectures like Altivec and MMX/SSE/SSE2/SSE3.
  • vec -- a portable, extensible SIMD toolkit with intuitive, fast functions; the trig functions and integer division canít be beat so far...
  • mach -- allocator and partially specialized vector for fast OS-level copy-on-write.
  • core -- adapting Core Foundation and Foundation classes for STL.
  • com -- interface pointer and a fast, lightweight server implementation for Microsoft COM and Apple CFPlugIns.
  • mmapping -- treating files as STL containers.

The library is open-source and free when derived code is reciprocated; for others, licensing is $99 (Personal) or $499 (Corporate).

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.

Matrix11 - C++ matrix template class library (source)

This matrix template class can be used to perform common matrix operations in your C++ program like any other built-in data types. Though I have written this class in compliance with ANSI/ISO C++ standard, you may encounter some compilation problem, particularly with older version of compilers, because all standard features of namespace, exception and template may not be fully supported in your compiler. In that case you may just want to disable any or all the above features by defining the appropriate macros. I have included full source code as inline functions in the header file so you can modify it if necessary.

The implementation is not optimized for performance and memory usage. So it is not suitable for large and sparse matrices. But for small and medium size matrices these should not be a problem, keeping in mind the present generation of powerful computers.

Special requirements: An up-to-date C++ compiler.

Changes: Some conditional compilation code has been added for different compilers.

mimetic - a full featured MIME library written in C++

Features

  • Very easy to use

    This was, from the beginning, one of the objectives of mimetic.
    If you know the MIME standard you'll rarely need online documentation.

  • Full featured

    Everything you expect to find in a MIME library is already into mimetic, if you'll not find it is because your requirements are probably insane :) Oh well cryptography is not in the library yet, but it will some day.

  • Standard compliant

    mimetic tries to follow current standards as closely as possible.

  • STL based

    This could be a very big advantage if you know the STL and want to integrate mimetic into your STL based project. You'll have same powerful concepts and classes fully applicable to emails. If you don't know the STL so this is a good opportunity to learn it! A very good reference (yet freely readable) is the Dinkum C++ Library Reference.

  • Compile-time codec chains

    Codec chains are template based so that codecs are chained together by the compiler using inline functions whenever possible to speed up runtime performance.
    Creating a codec chain will sound very familiar if you know Unix pipes:

    codec0 | codec1 | codec2 | ... | last_codec

  • Portable

    The developer personally tested it on Linux, {Open,Free,Net}BSD, Solaris, Mac OS X. It uses Autotools to compile so porting on any Unix system should be easy.

    Windows port has been done by Andreas Gruen but it's no loger maintained. You can get last release of Visual Studio project files into mimetic/win32 directory.

    If those are not enough please consider using Unix-style compiling on Windows using Cygwin or MinGW.

  • More then 50 test functions, more then 2500 checks

    cutee has been used for Unit Testing and there are a lot of tests the run automatically every time someone compiles mimetic. This doesn't mean that it's bug free but it helps.

  • Open source

    Source code of the library, tests and examples are bundled into the distribution package. All except codec code (that is heavily template based) is very readable so if Documentation is not good enough for you sources can be your primary reference.

  • HTML documentation

    Library documentation is generated from source code by Doxygen. You can browse it online of generate yourself for offline browsing.

Operating Systems

  • could run on any OS, but not tested

Compilers

  • Any standard C++ compiler

Mini-XML - Lightweight XML Library

Mini-XML is a small XML library that you can use to read and write XML and XML-like data files in your application without requiring large non-standard libraries. Mini-XML only requires an ANSI C compatible compiler (GCC works, as do most vendors' ANSI C compilers) and a 'make' program.

Mini-XML supports reading of UTF-8 and UTF-16 and writing of UTF-8 encoded XML files and strings. Data is stored in a linked-list tree structure, preserving the XML data hierarchy, and arbitrary element names, attributes, and attribute values are supported with no preset limits, just available memory.

mpatrol - A library for controlling, tracing and profiling dynamic memory allocations.

A link library that attempts to diagnose run-time errors that are caused by the wrong use of dynamically allocated memory. Along with providing a comprehensive and configurable log of all dynamic memory operations that occurred during the lifetime of a program, the mpatrol library performs extensive checking to detect any misuse of dynamically allocated memory. All of this functionality can be integrated into existing code through the inclusion of a single header file at compile-time. All logging and tracing output from the mpatrol library is sent to a separate log file in order to keep its diagnostics separate from any that the program being tested might generate. A wide variety of library settings can also be chan!ged at run-time via an environment variable, thus removing the need to recompile or relink in order to change the library's behaviour.

MTL: The Matrix Template Library - A library of generic components for basic linear algebra

The Matrix Template Library is a C++ class library for basic linear algebra. The MTL is designed for high-performance while at the same time taking advantage of the generic programming paradigm (ala the STL) to allow much greater flexibility and breadth of functionality. Many new and advanced programming techniques were used in the construction of this library.

The MTL is a low level library in the sense that the user must be conscious of the matrix type being used, and that all computationally expensive operations are explicit. The MTL is not a C++ Matlab. Nevertheless, the interface is designed to be simple and easy to use.

The matrix types provided include compressed sparse row/column, banded, packed, diagonal (and tridiagonal), envelope, array of pointers, and of course dense matrices. All matrix types share a common and easy to use interface.

The algorithms consist of the traditional basic linear algebra routines (from the BLAS level-1 to 3) which includes matrix and vector arithmetic as well as operations such as backward substitution and norm calculations.

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.

OpenEXR - a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format for use in computer imaging

OpenEXR is a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format developed by Industrial Light & Magic for use in computer imaging applications. OpenEXR is used by ILM on all motion pictures currently in production. The first movies to employ OpenEXR were Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, Men in Black II, Gangs of New York, and Signs. Since then, OpenEXR has become ILM's main image file format. OpenEXR's features include:
  • Higher dynamic range and color precision than existing 8- and 10-bit image file formats.
  • Support for 16-bit floating-point, 32-bit floating-point, and 32-bit integer pixels. The 16-bit floating-point format, called "half", is compatible with the half data type in NVIDIA's Cg graphics language and is supported natively on their new GeForce FX and Quadro FX 3D graphics solutions.
  • Multiple lossless image compression algorithms. Some of the included codecs can achieve 2:1 lossless compression ratios on images with film grain.
  • Extensibility. New compression codecs and image types can easily be added by extending the C++ classes included in the OpenEXR software distribution. New image attributes (strings, vectors, integers, etc.) can be added to OpenEXR image headers without affecting backward compatibility with existing OpenEXR applications.
ILM has released OpenEXR as free software. The OpenEXR software distribution includes:
  • IlmImf, a library that reads and writes OpenEXR images.
  • Half, a C++ class for manipulating half values as if they were a built-in C++ data type.
  • Imath, a math library with support for matrices, 2d- and 3d-transformations, solvers for linear/quadratic/cubic equations, and more.
  • exrdisplay, a sample application for viewing OpenEXR images on a display at various exposure settings.

OpenRTL - General purpose programming library

The OpenRTL library is an extensive augmentation to the standard C library and an alternative to large portions of the C runtime and the STL. OpenRTL text processing is UTF based for all UTF flavours. OpenRTL is itself an open standard, and this project is the official implementation. At the C and C++ compiler level, OpenRTL merges itself over the top of the standard C libraries of compilers such as GCC, BCC and MSC, on windows, linux and mac.

OpenRTL solves the portability of code problem by using a native code approach instead of a wrapper based approach. Wrapper solutions that wrap to many underlying OS calls tend not to work exactly the same on different platforms. For functionality that cannot be wrapped, only then are OS calls used, such as for threads and mutexes for example.

Features of OpenRTL

  • UTF based using UTF-8, UTF-32 and UTF-16.
  • Advanced memory management functions
  • Full unicode support
  • Full locale implementation
  • String manipulation functions in all UTF flavours.
  • Localized and non localized string and date functions.
  • Legacy windows compatible character set conversion.
  • Works on win, mac, ios, linux.
  • Unrestricted code license policy.
  • Full test suite.

OptiVec - Vectorized functions library for Borland C/C++

OptiVec contains more than 3000 hand-optimized, Assembler-written functions for all floating-point and integer data types, running, on the average, 2-3 times faster than compiled C/C++ code of the same functionality.

The following fields are covered:

  1. Vectorized form of all arithmetic operators and math functions of C/C++
  2. Statistics
  3. Analysis (derivatives, integrals, extrema, interpolation)
  4. Fast Fourier Transform techniques for efficient convolutions, correlation analyses, spectral filtering, etc.
  5. Curve fitting for a wide range of model functions from simple linear regression to non-linear models with multiple data sets
  6. Graphical representation of data in Cartesian coordinates
  7. Matrix operations, e.g.: multiplication, inversion, LU decomposition, singular value decomposition, two-dimensional FFT, eigenvalues
  8. Complex number math
The vectorized implementation in Assembler ensures not only superior speed; in many instances, the numerical accuracy is improved as well.

paintlib - Image file decoding

Paintlib is a C++ class library for image file decoding and manipulation. It currently supports the TGA, TIFF, JPEG/JFIF, Windows BMP, and Mac PICT formats. Data source and destination formats can be tailored as nessesary. Additionally, format-independent but fast bitmap manipulation classes are available.

Although there are a few Windows-specific functions, the library is portable. Makefiles are included for Microsoft Visual C++ (Win32) and GNU C++ (DOS and SunOS). Prerequisite is a C++-compiler with standard C libraries and support for exception handling. The library also requires support for 32-bit memory addressing.

Pantheios - The C++ Logging Sweetspot

Pantheios offers all the following features in one simple, portable, easy-to-use library:
  • Atomicity - all parts of a statement are emitted (or not) to the back-end transports in a single action.
  • Efficiency - the length of each element in a statement is determined at most once; the contents of each element in a statement is copied at most once; memory is allocated for the prepared statement at most once (and even then only if the total statement length exceeds 2047 characters).
  • Extensibility - the back-end transport can be customised by the user to any conceivable transport, should the stock back-ends prove insufficient for a particular need. The distribution includes transports over the following:
    • SysLog
    • - both UNIX and Windows
    • COM Error Object
    • Adaptive Communications Environment (ACE) Logger
    • Windows Debugger
    • Windows Event Log
    • stdout/stderr
  • Filtered - statements are filtered based on a 32-bit severity level, incorporating, but not limited to, the standard eight levels described by SysLog
  • Genericity - log statement elements may be of arbitrary type. Support for a large number of known types is implicit because Pantheios uses the STLSoft libraries. Extension to new/custom types is achievable by several different techniques, which one selects as appropriate.
  • 100% type-safety - Use of Pantheios from C++ is 100% type-safe (unlike the unsafe printf()-family, or the IOStreams).
But above all else Pantheios adheres to the important principle of C programming that:
  • You don't pay for what you don't use. If a statement at a given severity level is not to be emitted, no conversions, no concatenations, no memory allocation nor any other expensive operations are carried out.
The library is portable, and has been used on UNIX (Linux) and Win32 operating systems. There should be no impediment to it working on any platform, or flavour thereof

The library is compatible with a large range of C++ compilers. It even compiles with Visual C++ v5.0!

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 compiles under most DOS-based C++ compilers. A slight rewrite of the GUI- routines has to be done to make it compile under GNU C.

Perry Rapp says "The zipped sources in the ftp version include a license statement permitting source redistribution in the exact format of the zip file (ie, unmodified and as original zip file). This is a more liberal policy than the license of the software with the book, which allows no source redistribution at all."

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.

PEGTL - Parsing Expression Grammar Template Library

The Parsing Expression Grammar Template Library (PEGTL) is a C++11 header-only library for creating parsers according to a Parsing Expression Grammar (PEG). Grammars are written as regular C++ code, created with template programming, i.e. nested template instantiations that naturally correspond to the inductive definition of PEGs or other parser combinator approaches. A comprehensive set of parser rules that can be combined and extended by the user is included, as are mechanisms for debugging grammars and attaching user-defined actions to grammar rules.

physfs - Library for filesystem operations (with archives)

PhysicsFS is a library to provide abstract access to various archives. It is intended for use in video games, and the design was somewhat inspired by Quake 3's file subsystem. The programmer defines a "write directory" on the physical filesystem. No file writing done through the PhysicsFS API can leave that write directory, for security. For example, an embedded scripting language cannot write outside of this path if it uses PhysFS for all of its I/O, which means that untrusted scripts can run more safely. Symbolic links can be disabled as well, for added safety. For file reading, the programmer lists directories and archives that form a "search path". Once the search path is defined, it becomes a single, transparent hierarchical filesystem. This makes for easy access to ZIP files in the same way as you access a file directly on the disk, and it makes it easy to ship a new archive that will override a previous archive on a per-file basis. Finally, PhysicsFS gives you platform-abstracted means to determine if CD-ROMs are available, the user's home directory, where in the real filesystem your program is running, etc.

png++ - a C++ wrapper for libpng

PNG++ aims to provide simple yet powerful C++ interface to libpng, the PNG reference implementation library. PNG++ is free software distributed under a modified variant of BSD license. Using raw libpng in C++ may impose serious challenge since lots of precautions must be taken to handle initialization/deinitialization of control structures as well as handling errors correctly. With png++ you can read or write PNG images just in a single line of C++ code: png::image< png::rgb_pixel > image("input.png"); image.write("output.png");

PNGwriter - A C++ class allowing easy plotting to (and reading from) PNG images

This class, which requires libpng, allows you to plot to a 16-bit PNG file, saving it directly to disk. Plotting is as easy as specifying the red, green, blue values and the x, y coordinates of the pixel.

It includes functions for plotting simple geometric shapes (circle, rect, line), reading the colour of a pixel, reading in a whole PNG file (great for image analysis), plotting and reading in HSV colourspace and many others that might come in handy.

This class has proven tremendously useful for my own scientific simulation needs, and I would like others to benefit from its use as well.

It is available in both english and spanish, and is complemented by a PDF manual and a website with examples, a forum, and so on.

I have only tested it on Mac OS X and Debian Linux, but I don't see why it shouldn't compile on anything that has libpng.

POCO C++ Libraries - POCO are open source libraries accelerating development of network-centric porta

The POCO C++ Libraries (POCO stands for POrtable COmponents) are open source C++ class libraries that simplify and accelerate the development of network-centric, portable applications in C++. The libraries integrate perfectly with the C++ Standard Library and fill many of the functional gaps left open by it. Their modular and efficient design and implementation makes the POCO C++ Libraries extremely well suited for embedded development, an area where the C++ programming language is becoming increasingly popular, due to its suitability for both low-level (device I/O, interrupt handlers, etc.) and high-level object-oriented development. Of course, the POCO C++ Libraries are also ready for enterprise-level challenges. The POCO C++ Libraries free developers from re-inventing the wheel, and allow them to spend their time on more worthwhile areas, such as getting things done quickly and working on the features that make their application unique.

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.

pystring - Python string methods with std::string

Pystring is a collection of C++ functions which match the interface and behavior of pythonís string class methods using std::string. Implemented in C++, it does not require or make use of a python interpreter. It provides convenience and familiarity for common string operations not included in the standard C++ library. Itís also useful in environments where both C++ and python are used.

Overlapping functionality (such as index and slice/substr) of std::string is included to match python interfaces.

Originally developed at Sony Pictures Imageworks.
