Available C++ libraries FAQ (6/6) ================================= Contents ~~~~~~~~ Introduction (part1) Adding or amending entries (part1) Changes since the last update (part1) Libraries available via FTP (A-L) (part2) Libraries available via FTP (M-Z) (part3) Tools for C++ Programmers (part4) Libraries with no known FTP site (part4) Source code from books (part4) Other places to look for details of C++ libraries (part4) Useful ftp sites (part4) Commercial libraries (A-N) (part5) Commercial libraries (O-Z) (this file) Other commercial sources of C++ code (this file) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Commercial libraries (O-Z) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ObjectBuilder - GUI library ObjectBuilder includes the Object Interface (OI) class library which is a C++ object-oriented implementation of both Motif and Openlook interfaces. Note that interested parties can read more about the OI library in the 1300 page "OI Programmer's Guide" by Gary Aitken and Amber Bensen published by Prentice-Hall. ObjectBuilder is a GUI that offers developers a complete C++ implementation of Motif. ObjectBuilder allows developers to rapidly design, test, modify and implement sophisticated object-oriented graphical user interfaces by using ObjectBuilder to manipulate C++ objects found in its Object Interface (OI) C++ class library. ObjectBuilder features a drag-and-drop user interface that allows developers to immediately visualize the results of their user interface design. ObjectBuilder is owned and supported by Openware Technologies, Inc.. Formerly owned by ParcPlace Systems, Openware recently acquired ObjectBuilder.

This C++ library implements an object-oriented approach for reversing transactions at the C++ object level. A transaction consists of a series of three types of operations on objects: creation, modification, and deletion. The reversal (undo) of the transaction is implemented by effectively deleting the originally created objects, restoring the state of the modified objects, and effectively re-creating the deleted objects. References between objects are properly restored. This approach can significantly reduce the cost of implementing multiple level undo in an application, compared to a ! procedural "reverse transaction" approach. Object level undo also supports transaction rollback in other scenarios such as caught C++ exceptions. The $495 product includes a 100-page tutorial and over 300 pages of documentation in helpfile and printed format. A free demonstration version of the library can be downloaded from the Web site listed below.

ViewKit ObjectPak builds on the C++/Motif programming methods established by Doug Young in his book "Object-Oriented Programming with C++ and OSF/Motif". ViewKit ObjectPak provides a variety of ready-to use components and enables developers to easily extend ViewKit by creating new component classes. With these high-level components, ViewKit ensures consistency throughout a family of applications, and promotes enterprise-wide software reuse. In addition, ViewKit supports easy and effective communication between applications by using ToolTalk(tm), the CDE standard for inter-application messaging. ViewKit ObjectPak is available in binary and source form. Originally developed by Silicon Graphics, ViewKit is now available through ICS for most UNIX platforms. ICS has distributors in the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Israel, Korea, Japan, and Australia.

Using a multi-tiered parallel algorithm with the first tier inline, WGC can allocate most objects inline in less than 10 instructions! To enhance space efficiency WGC uses address-aligned storage algorithms with no per-object overhead (no linked lists!). To reduce fragmentation, WGC maintains a single process free store for all threads, modules, and DLLs. WGC's collector implements both conservative and accurate scanning and fully supports C++ code. Classes, arrays, scalars, interior pointers, unions, cross-heap pointers, anonymous unions (really!), large objects, library code you have no control over, etc. are all supported. Plus, you can incrementally deploy automatic memory management in existing or new applications, making some classes or objects collected and some not. WGC's just-in-time heap-checker stays active during the entire development cycle, transparently checking every new and delete. If a check fails, WGC will spawn your debugger and take you live to the line in question. To complement the live access to the line that failed a delete check, WGC provides detailed pointer/object info (allocating thread/line/file/pass count, object allocation time in microseconds, etc.) Debugging extensions allow interactive display/logging of object/pointer status and process stats. WGC is currently available for all major C++ compilers under Windows NT, Windows 95, and OS/2. WGC is priced at $895 per developer for all platforms, with no royalties. Team & Volume discounts apply. Source available. Ports to other platforms in progress. Hans Boehm tells me that this is no longer available.

This is more than just a wrapper for the WinSockets calls. It provides higher-level functions that make reading/writing to sockets very easy. Additionally, the Async aspect of the library makes using the asynchronous functionality of WinSockets *very* easy and your code *very* clean. It costs $50 which includes full source.

Their classes include some graphic capabilities, a rather nice error system, and a portable, if rudimentary, help system. Also included is the source for the library (and for the Designer!). In addition to the usual GUI stuff, Zinc also provides international character support (an extended version, for extra bux, is in the works), some container classes, and filesystem portability. They also allow you to incorporate platform-specific stuff (e.g., system messages) into their API; but, of course, you're on your own when it comes to porting any additions. The main new feature for 4.1 is object persistence. , (800) 638 8665, (801) 785-8900, (801) 785-8996 (fax), (801) 785-8997 (bbs) , tech@zinc.com Added : 01/01/95 Amended : 01/01/95 Licencing : Commercial BBS:(801) 785-8997 Fax:(801) 785-8996 WWW http://www.zinc.com Email:tech@zinc.com Postal address:ZINC Software Incorporated, 405 South 100 East 2nd Floor, Pleasant Grove, UT 84062 Tel:(801) 785-8900 Tel:(800) 638 8665 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Other commercial sources of C++ code ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ EMS CD This is not a code CD but it has many libraries & some code (all msdos) brought together into a CD.
