SFL -- Standard Function Library
SFL is the iMatix Standard Function Library, which is: (a) a portability layer for C, across Unix, Windows, etc; and
(b) a library of base functions useful for building real software
It was developed stand alone throughout the 1990s, and then later incorporated directly into iMatix products such as the Xitami webserver. It became a key part of the iMatix "base" in the early 2000s and was not released separately after that.
The original license for SFL is in src/license.txt. Briefly it allows usage under the GNU General Public License, the Perl Artistic License, or with a advertising clause. See src/license.txt for details.
This repository contains the last SFL source, binaries,and documentation released in a stand alone version, retrieved from:

pub directory contains the released artefacts (binaries, source
archives, etc) which are still retrievable; if older releases artefacts
are found they may be added later. Due to their small size (well under
1MB each), and the fact that development ceased many years ago (so there
will not be growth in the archive), these are added directly into the

approximately the equivalent documentation version.
