CFL (Compressed File Library) is meant for the save-files used by games, and other sorts of data files. Its features include pluggable class factories, easy CFL file creation at runtime, and the ability to have multiple separate CFL objects in memory at the same time. The package also includes a CFL testing tool to make it easier to port the library and to create additional plug-in compressors, preprocessors, and ciphers. It also includes a makecfl utility, which makes it easy to create ini files.
Spirit is an object-oriented, recursive descent parser generator framework implemented using template meta-programming techniques. Expression templates allow Spirit to approximate the syntax of Extended Backus Normal Form (EBNF) completely in C++. The Spirit framework enables a target grammar to be written exclusively in C++. EBNF grammar specifications can mix freely with other C++ code and, thanks to the generative power of C++ templates, are immediately executable.
IP Tables State implements the "state top" feature from IP Filter for IP Tables. "State top" displays the states held by your stateful firewall in a "top"-like manner. Since IP Tables doesn't have a built-in way to easily display this information once, an option was added to iptstate to do this.
The C++ Portable Types Library (PTypes) is a simple alternative to the STL that includes multithreading and networking. It defines dynamic strings, character sets, variants, lists and other basic data types along with threads, synchronization primitives and IP sockets. It is portable across modern Unix and Windows systems and includes a sample HTTP daemon showing the full power of the library.
CUT is a unit-testing framework for C, C++, and Objective-C. Unlike other unit testing tools, CUT doesn't strive to be an SUnit clone. It automates a lot of the drudge work often encountered when using other unit testing packages for the C family of programming languages. CUT may also be used to unit-test assembly language software in some circumstances.
Lua is a great programming language that prides itself on ANSI C portability, small size, simplicity, and ease of embedding. Due to these goals, the official Lua distribution cannot provide features common to popular stand-alone scripting languages. The goal of the LuaCheia project is to make a full-featured language based on Lua that makes it more usable as a stand-alone language.
IoBind uses meta-programming and policies to create readers and writers for complex objects at compile time. In other words, it is a code factory that produces customized readers and writers; you give the action to take and the objects to process, and it will generate the corresponding code: STL containers, uBLAS matrices, etc.
