Available C++ Libraries FAQ


About the list

Here is the latest draft of the "Available C++ libraries FAQ".

This list is not exhaustive. If you are looking for a particular library, and you don't find it here, try an ordinary Web search engine (e.g. Google). If you do find a suitable library, why not use the submission form to add it to this list for the next person?

Due to the increasing size of this list, and problems with updating the automatic poster at rtfm.mit.edu, the full list is now only available on the Web (at www.trumphurst.com/cpplibs/).

Marshall Cline's C++ FAQ is available on his Web page.

I have not included a credits list, because it would be nearly as large as the rest of the file! Many thanks to all those who contributed, and I hope you won't be offended that I haven't mentioned you.

Please send comments, criticisms, additions and amendments to me using the forms on the Web site. Please DO NOT mail me with requests for assistance in finding files mentioned in the list. I am unable to provide such a service. Definite information such as "file xyz is no longer at site xxx" IS welcome - even better if you can tell me an alternative site where it can be found. If you are new to the Internet, I recommend the newsgroups "news.announce.newusers" and "news.answers" for starters.

I recently made major changes to the FAQ, adding forms to let people make submissions and add comments without using email. Please let me know if I screwed up anywhere.

Dos and don'ts - (Mostly don'ts)

  • Do not send me mail asking for help with your programming - unless you are willing to pay my normal daily rate for consultancy. Free advice is available from Usenet newsgroups like comp.lang.c++.
  • Do not ask me if there is a library to do a particular task. All the libraries I know about are in this list.
  • I do not actually have copies of the libraries in the list. I do not evaluate the libraries in the list, I just collect together information sent in by the authors or others. So it's no use asking me how good a particular library is, or, indeed, anything about them that isn't already in the list.
  • If you want me to include your library in the list, send in a submission. Do not just send in a URL, and expect me to connect to the Internet, download your Web page(s) and summarise them. That's your job.

Big thanks go to Andrew Marlow, who has been going through the FAQ checking the URLs and various other details.
