STRINGS.H header files
WLIB.LIB the stuff you need to link in with (large model)
SOURCE.ZIP the source in its granular format
note that there is no documentation for the vector classes or the file
classes. It should be a fairly straightforward task to interpret the
appropriate header files.
All of my source has a copyright on it, yet these libraries are really
closer to "public domain". I want people to feel free to pass it along,
include it in libraries that they use and sell with the idea that everyone
will have a common base for string, file, vector and linked list libraries.
I just don't want someone to stick their name on it and get rich. I also
think that if someone were to tweak it some and then push it out with some
libraries, that then theirlibraries will no longer be compatible with other
libraries! If you need to do something like that, please just inherit the
appropriate class... Please notify me of any modifications that need to be
These libraries are designed for optimal use the cold, cruel world of
practical programming. It is my belief that the molding of C++ into a
SmallTalk environment kills the beauty of C++: object oriented extensions
to a language that compiles very tight and fast while maintaining high
portability. If you want a SmallTalk-like environment, use SmallTalk! I
hope that this code allows all C++ programmers to develop smaller and
faster programs in less time.
If you are new to programming in C++, the file STRINGS.DOC is for you.
I do ask that if you would like phone support for any of these libraries,
please send a check for $50 to:
