Introduction (中文)

TBOX is a glib-like cross-platform C library that is simple to use yet powerful in nature.

The project focuses on making C development easier and provides many modules (.e.g stream, asio, regex, container, algorithm ...), so that any developer can quickly pick it up and enjoy the productivity boost when developing in C language.

It supports the following platforms:

  • Windows
  • Macosx
  • Linux
  • Android
  • iOS

And it provides many compiling options using xmake:

  • Release: Disable debug information, assertion, memory checking and enable optimization.
  • Debug: Enable debug information, assertion, memory checking and disable optimization.
  • Smallest: Disable all extensional modules and enable space optimization.
  • Micro: compiling micro library (~64K) for the embed system.

Features

The stream library

  • Supports file, data, http and socket source
  • Supports the stream filter for gzip, charset and...
  • Implements stream transfer
  • Implements the static buffer stream for parsing data
  • Supports coroutine and implements asynchronous operation

The coroutine library

  • Provides high-performance coroutine switch(refer to reports)
  • Supports arm, arm64, x86, x86_64 ..
  • Provides channel interfaces
  • Provides semaphore and lock interfaces
  • Supports io socket and stream operation in coroutine
  • Provides some io servers (http ..) using coroutine
  • Provides stackfull and stackless coroutines

The database library

  • Supports mysql and sqlite3 database and enumerates data using the iterator mode

The xml parser library

  • Supports DOM and SAX mode and Supports xpath

The serialization and deserialization library

  • Supports xml, json, bplist, xplist, binary formats

The memory library

  • Implements some memory pools for optimizing memory
  • Supports fast memory error detecting. it can detect the following types of bugs for the debug mode:
    • out-of-bounds accesses to heap and globals
    • use-after-free
    • double-free, invalid free
    • memory leaks

The container library

  • Implements hash table, single list, double list, vector, stack, queue and min/max heap. Supports iterator mode for algorithm

The algorithm library

  • Uses the iterator mode
  • Implements find, binary find and reverse find algorithm
  • Implements sort, bubble sort, quick sort, heap sort and insert sort algorithm
  • Implements count, walk items, reverse walk items, for_all and rfor_all

The network library

  • Implements dns(cached)
  • Implements ssl(openssl, polarssl, mbedtls)
  • Implements http
  • Implements cookies
  • Supports ipv4, ipv6
  • Supports coroutine

The platform library

  • Implements timer, fast and low precision timer
  • Implements atomic and atomic64 operation
  • Implements spinlock, mutex, event, semaphore, thread and thread pool
  • Implements file, socket operation
  • Implements poller using epoll, poll, select, kqueue ...
  • Implements switch context interfaces for coroutine

The charset library

  • Supports utf8, utf16, gbk, gb2312, uc2 and uc4
  • Supports big endian and little endian mode

The zip library

  • Supports gzip, zlibraw, zlib formats using the zlib library if exists
  • Implements lzsw, lz77 and rlc algorithm

The utils library

  • Implements base32, base64 encoder and decoder
  • Implements assert and trace output for the debug mode
  • Implements bits operation for parsing u8, u16, u32, u64 data

The math library

  • Implements random generator
  • Implements fast fixed-point calculation, Supports 6-bits, 16-bits, 30-bits fixed-point number

The libc library

  • Implements lightweight libc library interfaces, the interface name contains tb_xxx prefix for avoiding conflict
  • Implements strixxx strrxxx wcsixxx wcsrxxx interface extension
  • Optimizes some frequently-used interface, .e.g. memset, memcpy, strcpy ...
  • Implements memset_u16, memset_u32, memset_u64 extension interfaces

The libm library

  • Implements lightweight libm library interfaces, the interface name contains tb_xxx prefix for avoiding conflict
  • Supports float and double type

The regex library

  • Supports match and replace
  • Supports global/multiline/caseless mode
  • Uses pcre, pcre2 and posix regex modules

The hash library

  • Implements crc32, adler32, md5 and sha1 hash algorithm
  • Implements some string hash algorithms (.e.g bkdr, fnv32, fnv64, sdbm, djb2, rshash, aphash ...)
  • Implements uuid generator

The asynchronous io library (deprecated)

  • Please uses coroutine to implement asio programming

Todolist

  • Add server module
  • Reconstruction xml module
  • Add more algorithms and container
  • Optimizes more libc interfaces
  • Implements more libm interfaces and not wrap it only

int main(int argc, char** argv)
{
    // init tbox
    if (!tb_init(tb_null, tb_null)) return 0;

    // trace
    tb_trace_i("hello tbox");

    // init vector
    tb_vector_ref_t vector = tb_vector_init(0, tb_element_cstr(tb_true));
    if (vector)
    {
        // insert item
        tb_vector_insert_tail(vector, "hello");
        tb_vector_insert_tail(vector, "tbox");

        // dump all items
        tb_for_all (tb_char_t const*, cstr, vector)
        {
            // trace
            tb_trace_i("%s", cstr);
        }
