GNU Common C++
Starting with the 3.0 release, future work in GNU ccScript and
ccAudio have been consolidated with GNU uCommon C++ to produce a
single framework. This simplifies producing class documentation for
the entire framework, which can be produced all at once. There will
be a focus on applied cryptography and cryptographic stacks in GNU
uCommon C++ releases later this year as a foundation for
standardizing development of secure services.
C++ originally started as a smaller embedded library as well as to
try and improve support for both ipv4 and ipv6 socket addressing in
GNU Common C++ itself, and with a specific focus on design patterns
and generic containers. The newer GNU uCommon C++ will effectively
replace the original GNU Common C++ codebase over time, and most new
development is happening there, but we will continue to maintain the
original GNU Common C++ codebase, which is long considered stable,
especially for bugsfixes. GNU uCommon C++ is licensed using the GNU
GPL V3 or later.
What is GNU Common C++ and GNU uCommon C++?
GNU Common C++ and GNU uCommon C++ are both very portable and
highly optimized class framework for writing C++ applications that
need to use threads and support concurrent synchronization, and that
use sockets, XML parsing, object serialization, thread-optimized
String and data structure classes, etc. This framework offers a class
foundation that hides platform differences from your C++ application
so that you need not write platform specific code. GNU uCommon C++
has been ported to compile natively on most platforms which support
either posix threads, or on maybe be used with Debian hosted mingw32
and mingw64 to build native threading applications for Microsoft
GNU uCommon C++ can also be used to construct embedded
applications as part of GNU
Telephony Open Embedded. GNU uCommon C++ currently offers a
complete runtime C++ library environment for developing deeply
embedded targets without requiring the use of the ANSI C++ standard
library, rtti, exception handling, or STL templates. GNU Common C++
and GNU uCommon C++ will both build on all versions of GCC from 2.95
through 4.5, and with many other C++ compilers as well.
Get the Software
GNU Common C++ and GNU uCommon may be found at ftp.gnu.org or
downloaded directly from our Download
Page. GNU Common C++ "2" releases are currently
licensed using the GNU General Public License Version 2 or later with
runtime exception. GNU uCommon is licensed using the GNU General
Public License Version 3 or later.
Support and Other Resources
To simplify management and bug tracking for the different packages
I currently maintain, I have consolidated management of GNU Common
C++, related GNU Common C++ packages, and GNU Telephony projects
Bayonne. These are being managed on subversion through the GNU
Telephone subsystem on Savannah.
This may soon be migrated to our own bugzilla host on the GNU
The following GNU mailing list has been set up for GNU [u]Common
We also maintain a GNU Telephony wiki.
The following projects are known to use GNU Common C++:
