SafeStr 0.9.5 (http://www.zork.org/safestr/)
SafeStr is a string handling library for C that has safe semantics, yet
interoperates with legacy library code in a straightforward manner.
Porting C code to use the library natively should also be
straightforward. The library works on all modern Unix-like platforms,
and works in the Win32 environment.
Using SafeStr allows you to avoid buffer overflows in string handling
and format string problems, if you stick to its API. It also allows
you to track whether strings are "trusted", much like Perl's taint mode.
XXL 0.9.1 (http://www.zork.org/xxl/)
XXL is a threadsafe exception handling and asset management library for
C. The goal of this library is to simplify memory management and
reduce the number of unnoticed errors in programs. Particularly, the
programmer need not check error conditions on every single function
call, nor worry about doing cleanup when things fail, because XXL
manages that work.
Both of these packages are available under a BSD license.
