Bobcat is an acronym of `Brokken's Own Base Classes And Templates'. It is a shared library implementing C++ classes that are frequently used in software developed by Frank Brokken. All of Frank's C++ programs hosted at GitHub depend on `bobcat'. The Bobcat library contains a variety of C++ classes and templates, some of them based on well-known Design Patterns. The library offers classes handling, e.g., Child Processes, Forks, Pipes and Redirection Command-to-Function associations Command-line arguments and history handling Command-line editing using streams Configuration Files Decryption and Encryption Extended String Operations Hash-tables Integers of unlimited size File-descriptor based streams (e.g. handle sockets using streams) Mail headers and mail filtering (milters) Message Digests Pattern matching Processes, Signals, Threads Shared Memory Single (Direct) Key Input Syslog- and other kinds of messages Temporary files Universal Type Conversions (Templates) To create the library from its sources, either descend into the bobcat directory, or unpack a created archive, cd into its top-level directory and follow the instructions provided in the INSTALL file found there. Alternatively, binary ready-to-install versions of the Bobcat library are available in verious Linux distributions, in particular Debian.
