A thread pool library using pthreads
A thread pool library that uses a context so a program may utilize more than one thread pool at a time. A hook allows your program to determine the number of free threads before attempting to launch one. This library has seen successful use in a range of server daemons and client daemons.
Handles extended but compatible config files
The common - widely accustomed - configuration file format is mainly section oriented with limits for the application. Namely for the file based "executable-setup' of software components including graphical user interfaces. Alternatives are already available, e.g. ConfigParser and ConfigObj. The main for yet another issue arose from the requirements: 1. to supply an integrated solution of simple configuration files with the internal data representation by PyObjectTrees 2. to supply a facility for the customizable setup of complex software components including graphical interfaces by a 'simple' syntax - applicable for almost anyone. Therefore e.g. following features are introduced: -> path-like section names - representing tree structures with name spaces, e.g. '[a.b.c]' -> introduction of multiple keywords for recursive resolution and replacement during the scan, e.g. for environment, executables, includes, GUI masks, SW components, .. ***UPDATE SOON*** V1.0=Jarngreipr
Thread safe hash library
A hash table library that can store binary data. It is thread safe and you can use as many hash tables in your program as you wish because each has its own context. You can drop items from the hash table and can expire items that have become too old. String keys are default, but with your own comparison routine you can use binary or specialty keys. If you have special needs you can substitute your on hash calculation function for the built in one. There is also a library call that allows you to judge the efficiency of your hash function. The library has complete HTML documentation. And several tests of the library can be run with "make check".
