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.
libstream is a fast I/O stream library written in C. It supports common stringstream operations such as read(), write(), and peak(). Instead of using one large buffer, libstream splits its internal buffer into a linked list of fixed-size chunks, thus featuring a more efficient memory footprint. There are no external dependencies.
Libntoh aims to be a user-friendly library to provide an easy way to perform defragmentation and reassembly of network/transport protocols. It is intended to provide a flexible, thread-safe, and highly configurable environment for the user. It performs IP defragmentation and TCP reassembly.
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.
NXWEB is ultra-fast and super-lightweight web server for applications written in C. It can serve thousands of concurrent requests with a small memory footprint using an event-driven and multi-threaded model that is designed to scale. It features an exceptionally light code base, a simple API, decent HTTP protocol handling, keep-alive connections, SSL support (via GNUTLS), HTTP proxy (with keep-alive connection pooling), non-blocking sendfile support (with configurable small file memory cache), cacheable gzip content encoding, cacheable image thumbnails with watermarks (via ImageMagick), a modular design for developers, and the ability to run as a daemon.
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.
Dateutils are a bunch of tools that revolve around fiddling with dates and times in the command line, with a strong focus on use cases that arise when dealing with large amounts of financial data. Their target market is shell scripts that need date calculations or calendar conversions, and as such they are highly pipe-able and modeled after their well-known cousins (e.g. dtest vs. test, or dgrep vs. grep).
libtld is a library used to extract the TLD from a URI and to check email validity. This allows you to extract the exact domain name, sub-domains, and all the TLD (top level, second level, third level, etc.). The problem with TLDs is that you cannot know where the domain starts. Some domains can use one top-level domain, others use two, etc. However, it may be useful to know where the domain is to have the exact list of sub-domains. For example, if you want to force www. at the start of the domain name if no other sub-domains are specified, then you need to know exactly how many TLD are defined in a URI. The libtld offers one main function: tld(), which gives you a way to extract the TLD from any URI. The result is the offset where the TLD starts. This gives you enough information to extract everything else you need. For emails, the library is capable of parsing a string that represents a list of email addresses to be verified. The verification includes a check of the domain name and its TLD.
cso is an easy to use C module that serializes objects into a simple binary format. It can be used to store data or to send it over a network. It supports either an object of type struct (CSO_DICT) or array (CSO_ARRAY) which contains elements of type integer of different sizes, double, binary, string, struct, or array.
