Free C/C++ Font Library

T1Lib - Adobe Type 1 Fonts Library
If you want your applications to support Adobe Type 1 fonts, this rasterizing library might be just what you need. It requires a Unix system. It is implemented independently of X11, so it might be the solution for those of you who don't want to use the Type 1 rasterizer provided with X11R5 and later. The source code for the package has a filename like t1lib-*.tar.gz (where * is replaced by the version number). Latest: There is a Windows port of t1lib available as well.
Heard of True Type? Well, now you can include True Type support in your programs on systems that do not have True Type support by default. Linux and other OSes are supported.

regex is a regular expression parser that is released into the public domain (or so the site says). It is useful if you want to write a program using regular expressions but don't want to use the GPL ones that come from the Free Software Foundation. (The package is somewhere in the middle of the page linked to; just scroll down to find it.)
glob is a parser to handle wildcards (similar to the way that Unix shells parse wildcards). It is released into the public domain (or so the site says). It is useful if you want to write a program with globbing facility but don't want to use the GPL ones that come from the Free Software Foundation. (The package is somewhere in the middle of the page linked to; just scroll down to find it.)
SynEdit Multi-line Edit Control
SynEdit is a multi-line edit control that you can use in your Delphi and Borland C++ Builder programs. Features include syntax highlighting for a variety of programming languages and a macro recorder. This is a VCL control that comes with source code.
libsigc++ Callback Framework for C++
libsigc++ has C++ classes that provide you a typesafe callback system. You can define signals and assign callback functions to those signals. It is licensed under the GNU Library General Public License (LGPL). It works on platforms with a standards-compliant C++ compiler, such as those with gcc (see the Free C/C++ Compilers page for gcc). A port for Microsoft Visual C++ (which does not implement partial specializating) has also been integrated into the distribution, so the library should also work with that compiler.
The Standard Function Library
The Standard Function Library, or SFL, contains routines for compression, encryption, encoding, data type conversion, data output formatting, process control, dates, times, calendars, symbol tables, linked lists, configuration files, error message files, string manipulation, searching, Internet socket access, MIME, CGI, SMTP, batch programming, debug tracing, directory access, environment access, etc. It is designed with portability in mind. The library is written in ANSI C and is supported on MSDOS, Windows, OS/2, Linux, AIX, SunOS, HP/UX, Solaris, NetBSD, FreeBSD, SCO OpenServer, Digital Unix, and OpenVMS. The source code is also available.
HTML Tidy Library Project
HTML Tidy is an HTML validation library that comes with source code. It allows you to embed HTML validation facilities into your application, which may come in handy if you are writing your own editor.
Views - C++ Standard Template Library Extension
Views extends STL to include domain views, which allows you to simplify your code when you work with containers.
GNU Lightning
GNU Lightning is a library of routines that allows programs to generate assembly language code at runtime. It abstracts the target CPU, exposing your program to a standardized RISC instruction set. The library is supposed to be fast, thus making it useful if you're developing a Just-In-Time compiler.
Scintilla Edit Control
Ever wanted to create your own syntax-highlighting editor? Scintilla is a source code edit control, similar in concept to Microsoft's RichEdit control, that supports things like syntax highlighting, code completion and call tips. It also supports things like the use of proportional fonts, bold, italics, multiple foreground and background colours, and multiple fonts. The source code is available free, and the licence allows you to use the control in any project, free or commercial.

IO95: Win95 LFN API Wrapper Library
This library has functions which you can call from your MSDOS programs to access the long filenames (LFN) API found in Windows 95 and above. It thus makes it easy for you to write long file name (LFN) support. The library contains the POSIX.1 compatible opendir() functions, DOS findfirst() functions, open() functions, fopen() functions, mk/rm/chdir(), remove(), unlink(), rename(), getcwd(), getdcwd(), getcurdir(), fullpath(), lfn2sfn(). As you can see, all the hard work of accessing the API has been done for you - just use the usual familiar functions (whether Unix or DOS). It requires a Borland compiler to compile (which you can get it for free, legally - check out our Free C/C++ Compilers page).
U2NT Library: Unix/NT Cross-Platform Library
This is a library that eases the work needed to port Unix programs to NT. There aren't many details on the website about the Library' capabilities, but you can simply download it from their site and check it out yourself.
ClibPDF PDF Library
ClibPDF is a C library that allows you to create PDF files from your application or even CGI scripts. With PDF files becoming more popular on the Internet, it is beginning to look like it may be a good idea for more applications to be able to create and access PDF files. The library is free if you are using it for non-profit purposes.
Graph Template Library (GTL)
This C++ graph library, based on the Standard Template Library (STL), contains classes useful when you work with graphs, nodes, and edges, as well as basic algorithms which can be used to build more complex graph algorithms. The library has been used on Solaris, Linux, Windows NT, 95, 98, HP-UX and FreeBSD, although it is possible that it works elsewhere as well.
Matrix TCL Lite
Matrix TCL Lite is a C++ matrix template class that may be used for common matrix operations like any other built-in data types. It has been tested with Borland C++ 5.0 (both 16 and 32 bit); Borland C++ 5.5, C++ Builder version 1.0, 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0; MS Visual C++ version 4.0, 4.2, 5.0 and 6.0; SUN g++ under Sun Solaris; GNU C++ and SGI C++ version 7.2.1; Metrowerks CodeWarrior Pro 5; and Sybase Power++ v 2.1.
Ensemble is a toolkit for building reliable distributed applications. Included in this toolkit is a library of protocols which you can use to build your distributed applications. The library primarily uses UDP/IP sockets. You can write your applications in C, C++, Java (on Solaris and NT), and ML. Ensemble itself is written in ML and will apparently run on any platform that supports Objective Caml and sockets, including Windows, SunOS4, Solaris, Linux and RS6000-AIX. You can get the binaries for SunOS, Solaris, Linux and Windows NT. Source code is also available for download.
This is a plotting library for displaying data as curves, bar graphs, pie charts, 3D-colour plots, surfaces, contours and maps. Versions are available for C, Fortran 77 and Fortran 90 compilers on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenVMS, MS-DOS, Windows 95/98/NT, and other flavours of Unix. On some operating systems, Java, Perl, and Python are also supported. (Not all versions of the library are free, though.)
This C library "allows network management applications to access SMI MIB module information through a well defined API that hides the nasty details of locating and parsing SMIv1/v2 MIB modules."
GNET Network Library
This is a simple network library built on top of glib. It works on Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, Solaris, HP and Windows.
LibJeeps Library
This is a "Unix-based Garmin CPS communication and analysis function library and development system. To quote/paraphrase from their documentation, it includes high level host communication routines that treat waypoints, almanacs, etc as objects; datum conversions; cartographic functions; etc. The source code is distributed under the GNU LGPL, and is written in ANSI C.
Whisper C++ Application Framework
Whisper is a general purpose C++ application framework, which takes advantage of templates, multiple inheritance, STL and exceptions. It is portable to both Macintosh and Win32. It contains numerous debugging tools.
This is a CORBA 2 ORB (with associated Library) that was originally developed by AT&T Laboratories, Cambridge, and is certified CORBA 2.1 compliant. OmniORB is distributed under the GNU GPL and the Library in the package is distributed under the Library GPL. The package is designed in such a way so that you can actually distribute your applications that use the Library without being forced to release your source code as well. Platforms supported include Solaris, Windows NT, Windows 95, Linux (x86, PowerPC), Digital Unix, AIX, HPUX, Open VMS (Alpha and Vax), NextStep, Reliant Unix, Phar Lap's Real Time ETS Kernel, SGI Irix, SCO Unixware, MacOS, OS RTEMS, SCO OpenServer, etc. In case you are wondering what CORBA is, it basically defines the interface and API that allows programs to communicate with each other even if they are running on separate machines on different hardware and operating systems. If you need more information, you can check up the Object Management Group's website for their beginner's guide.
GNU Common C++
GNU Common C++ is a C++ framework for developing portable threaded applications. It has abstractions for threads, sockets, XML parsing, serialization, config files, and so on, hiding the differences between platforms in its classes so that you can write code that is (hopefully) portable. It is released under the GNU GPL license.
Hoard malloc/free Replacement
Hoard is a malloc/free replacement that is supposed to be fast, scalable and memory efficient. It supports Linux and other Unix platforms.
This is a free implementation of the curses package of Unix. It has all the BSD curses facilities plus the System V enhancements. Platforms supported include Linux and most (if not all) Unix systems. It has been ported even to OS/2. For those not familiar with curses, this is library that allows programs to write to the screen in a terminal-independent manner.
OPP C++ Class Library
A C++ class library that has a number of features, including classes for retrieving files via HTTP, sending and receiving email, database classes, thread support, string class, html parser, etc. It supports Unix platforms.
Boehm-Demers-Weiser Garbage Collector
A garbage collector for C/C++ that can also function as a memory leak detector. You can simply replace your calls to malloc() with GC_malloc(). Win32, Win32s, OS/2, MacOS, AmigaDOS and Unix systems are supported.
