LibU is a multiplatform C library that comes under a BSD-style license. It includes many interdependent modules for accomplishing several tasks: memory allocation, networking and URI parsing, string manipulation, debugging, and logging in a very compact way, plus many other miscellaneous tasks. It has a small footprint (about 70KB for the default configuration), it is modular, and it has a multiplatform nature, making it an ideal candidate for embedded systems. KLone is an example of such usage.
downtimed is a program that monitors operating system downtime, uptime, shutdowns, and crashes and records such events. At OS startup it logs information about previous downtime. It then periodically updates a time stamp file on the disk, which is used to determine the approximate time when the system was last up and running. During a graceful system shutdown, it records a time stamp in another file. The downtimes(1) command line tool can be used to inspect records of past downtime.
gweb++ is an asynchronous event-driven Web server and reverse proxy. It is written in C++, but it doesn't make use of the STL or of any additional libraries. It supports the following event notification mechanisms: epoll (edge-triggered, Linux), kqueue (FreeBSD), port (Solaris), poll, and select. It has the following main features: HTTP/1.1, reverse proxy, FastCGI, configurable via an XML file, MIME types support, pipelining, virtual hosts, Keep-Alive, directory listing (with an optional footer file), handling of the If-Modified-Since header, HTTP ranges, logs, configurable access logs, and log rotation.
MaKL is a simple and light framework for building multi-platform C/C++ projects, purely based on the Bourne Shell and GNU Make. It is much easier to install and use than other typical building systems, while maintaining the essential functionality. It is ideal for embedded systems due to its cross-compilation, multiplatform toolchaining mechanisms, and minimal external dependencies.
