Available C++ Libraries FAQ

Commercial libraries (A-N)


Class library with container classes and basic data types for the development of portable, object-oriented applications. Actually (Feb 96) won the readers choice award of "Objekt Spektrum", which is a German SIGS publication.

This C++ library is completely new. It is aimed at commercial users and implements a generous selection of application-independent basic classes. Its use frees the user from error-prone and time-consuming specific tasks (e.g. main memory management). All libraries previously available on the market are targeted more or less specifically on a particular system environment. However, it is becoming more and more urgent to make as many application modules as possible independent of a specific target platform. What gives Generic++ its competitive edge is the portability of its components and the way it takes account of other software engineering aspects.

  • Availability on all standard operating systems and platforms
  • Accommodation of the latest C++ extensions such as templates and exception handling
  • Co-existence with other libraries
  • High degree of runtime efficiency and low resource consumption
  • Integrated debugging support
  • Template-based, typesafe container classes with interchangeable implementation data structures
  • Smart cursors
  • Suitability for use in the development of client/server applications in heterogeneous networks.
  • Support for multi-threaded applications
  • Persistent objects
  • Regular expressions
  • System independent handling of file and path names
