Ctalk adds classes, methods, operator overloading, inheritance, and complex object expressions to otherwise standard C programs. Programs can use only a few Ctalk objects and methods in an otherwise standard C program, but the language can be used to write entire programs also. Ctalk works on most if not all of the systems that support GCC, the GNU C compiler. The package includes the language, class and run-time libraries, example programs, tutorial, and language reference.
Gearmand is the job server component of Gearman. Gearman provides a generic framework to farm out work to other machines, dispatching function calls to machines that are better suited to do work, to do work in parallel, to balance the load of processing, or to call functions between languages.
ccglue is a complementary tool to cscope and ctags. The tool builds a cross-reference symbol database from cscope (and ctags) databases that can be used to display dependency-graphs (aka call-trees, code flow). Visualization can be done with the Vim CCTree plugin or the built-in stand-alone command-line tracer.
cmocka is a unit testing framework for C with mock objects. There are a variety of C unit testing frameworks available supporting different platforms and compilers. Some development requires a lot of different compilers and older versions, which makes it difficult to use unit testing frameworks. The idea of CMocka is that a test application only requires the standard C library and CMocka itself to minimize the conflicts with standard C library headers, especially on a lot of different platforms.
cconstants is a library and a set of commandline utilities which allow the values of constants defined in C header files to be queried outside the C preprocessor. This allows the values of these constants to be queried from programming languages other than C, on systems without the C preprocessor installed, and on systems on which the header files defining these constants are not available.
Dynace is a portable extension to the C language which adds object-oriented facilities, including classes with multiple-inheritance, a meta-object protocol, dynamic dispatching via generic functions, a garbage collector, threads, and an extensive class library, including an optional GUI library. It has complete documentation and a tutorial.
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.
