C Almost Generic Library (CAGL) is a set of C macros which generates typed arrays, lists (singly or doubly-linked), hash tables, and balanced binary trees, as well as many useful functions to manipulate them. The containers grow automatically, and their memory is managed by the library. The container data, or elements, may also be managed by the library, depending on the options specified by the programmer. The aim is to free C programmers from the drudgery of implementing common data structures and algorithms. CAGL also provides some safety by making the containers typed instead of void pointers. Although, at most, two macros are invoked to declare and define a container type, manipulation of the containers is done using functions generated by the macros. A simple naming convention is used to get around the limitation that C doesn't support function overloading.
