Better String Library is an abstraction of a string data type which is superior to the C library char buffer string type and C++'s std::string.
The library is totally stand alone, portable (known to work with gcc/g++, MSVC++, Intel C++, WATCOM C/C++, Turbo C, Borland C++, IBM's native CC compiler on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X), high performance, easy to use and is not part of some other collection of data structures. Even the file I/O functions are totally abstracted (so that other stream-like mechanisms, like sockets, can be used.)
Nevertheless, it is adequate as a complete replacement of the C string library for string manipulation in any C program.
The library includes a robust C++ wrapper that uses overloaded operators, rich constructors, exceptions, stream I/O and STL to make the CBString struct a natural and powerful string abstraction with more functionality and higher performance than std::string.
Bstrlib is stable, well tested and suitable for any software production environment.
What's New in This Release:
· Better testing of bSecure* functions.
· Remove Open Watcom STL warning.
· Use macros for mallocs etc identically between C and C++ modules.
· Fix the MSVC bsStatic __LINE__ issue (since MS is not fixing it in their compiler.)
· Some casts to retain C++ compiling compatibility for bstrlib.c
· Some code simplifications.
