oscpack -- Open Sound Control packet manipulation library http://www.audiomulch.com/~rossb/code/oscpack Copyright (c) 2004-2005 Ross Bencina <firstname.lastname@example.org> A simple C++ library for packing and unpacking OSC packets. Oscpack is simply a set of C++ classes for packing and unpacking OSC packets. Oscpack includes a minimal set of UDP networking classes for windows and posix which are sufficient for writing many OSC applications and servers, but you are encouraged to use another networking framework if it better suits your needs. Oscpack is not an OSC application framework, it doesn't include infrastructure for constructing or routing OSC namespaces, just classes for easily constructing, sending, receiving and parsing OSC packets. The library should also be easy to use for other transport methods (eg serial). The key goals of the oscpack library are: - to be a simple and complete implementation of OSC - to be portable to a wide variety of platforms - to allow easy development of robust OSC applications (for example it should be impossible to crash a server by sending it malformed packets, and difficult to create malformed packets.) Here's a summary of the key files: osc/OscReceivedElements -- classes for parsing a packet osc/OscPrintRecievedElements -- iostream << operators for printing packet elements osc/OscOutboundPacket -- a class for packing messages into a packet osc/OscPacketListener -- base class for listening to OSC packets on a UdpSocket tests/OscUnitTests -- unit test program for the OSC modules tests/OscSendTests -- examples of how to send messages tests/OscReceiveTest -- example of how to receive the messages sent by OSCSendTests examples/OscDump -- a program that prints received OSC packets Building -------- In general the idea is that you will embed this source code in your projects as you see fit. The Makefile has an install rule for building a shared library and installing headers in usr/local. The Makefile works for Linux and MaxOS X except that if you are on a big endian machine such as PowerPC Macintosh you need to edit the line which sets the endianness to OSC_HOST_BIG_ENDIAN (see the makefile comment for details) or it won't work. If you want to build and install liboscpack as a library on OS X you also need to edit the $(LIBFILENAME) rule by commenting out the Linux case and uncommenting the OS X case since OS X uses different gcc flags for shared libraries. On Windows there is a batch file for doing a simple test build with MinGW gcc called make.MinGW32.bat. This will build the test executables and oscdump in ./bin and run the unit tests. -- If you fix anything or write a set of TCP send/recieve classes please consider sending me a patch.
