MetaKit - C++ classes for persistent structured data

General purpose C++ classes for highly-structured persistent containers. This library can be used as compact/fast database for many apps/utilities. Some key features are: uncorruptable data files, an efficient file format, "on-the-fly" restructuring, and portability - all using a very simple API. The windows release includes DLLs, with many C++ examples. Static libs and full source code to build royalty-free self contained apps is available.

Recent changes include

  • production-grade interfaces to Tcl and Python
  • SQL parser interface, currently in alpha
