   sml-lib          Tom 7                                20 Nov 2010

This is my library for Standard ML, which I use for pretty much every
project. It is essentially a grab-bag library with a write-as-needed
strategy. I import other people's stable libraries (if they have free
licenses) when I use them and then sometimes make them conform to my
personal style, unsophisticated build management practices, or
distaste for boilerplate. Some other people use and contribute to this
library, too (see below). I welcome your contributions as well but I
use a dictatorial strategy for the library's arrangement.

Where not indicated in the accompanying README, these utilities are
licensed with the GNU Public License (GPL). See the file COPYING for
details. Libraries based on other people's code usually use a
different license; please be wary.

The subdirectories are as follows:

 algo - Algorithms (LZW, Heaps, Edit Distance, ...)
 crypt - Cryptographic functions (MD5, SHA-1, DES, ...)
 data - Data structures (functional queue, circular buffer, trie, ...)
 files - Implementations of file formats (XML, MIDI, .wav, ...)
 geom - Geometric algorithms and data structures
 misc - Stuff that didn't fit elsewhere (base64, fixed words, parameter
        parsing, ...)
 mlton - Glue for connecting MLton to external libraries through its 
         FFI (mySql, X Windows)
 njlib - My most-used parts of the SML/NJ library (splay trees)
 parse - Combinator parsing library
 port - A uniform interface to some non-standard features available in 
        several SML compilers
 sound - Libraries for making and processing sound
 text - Utilities for processing text
 util - Utilities that go with existing structures (lists, strings, 
        file system, etc.)
 bdd - Incomplete port of Box2D library (called BoxDiaDia). Does not
       have anything to do with binary decision diagrams, sorry.
       Status as of 20 Nov 2010 is that collisions are complete and
       tested, and dynamics code is mostly complete but not tested
