OSSP cfg

OSSP cfg is a ISO-C library for parsing arbitrary C/C++-style configuration files. A configuration is sequence of directives, each directive consists of zero or more tokens, and each token can be either a string or again a complete sequence. This means the configuration syntax has a recursive structure and allows you to create configurations with arbitrarily-nested sections. The configuration syntax also provides complex single/double/balanced quoting of tokens, hexadecimal/octal/decimal character encodings, character escaping, C/C++ and shell-style comments, etc. The library API allows importing of a configuration text into an Abstract Syntax Tree (AST), traversing the AST, and optionally exporting the AST again as a configuration text.

      •  24 Jan 2005 15:46

        Release Notes: A fix was made for "va_list" variable passing in "cfg_fmt_xxx" functions. Autoconf support for va_copy() detection and usage was added. The new GNU Bison 2.0 parser generator is now also accepted in the build environment.

        •  19 Dec 2004 23:17

          Release Notes: The cfg_node_get() function has been fixed after the recent introduction of LOAN/GIFT/COPY argument passing semantics. This unbreaks the Perl API's unpack() function.

          •  05 Dec 2004 23:01

            Release Notes: Remaining memory leaks have been plugged by introducing the usual LOAN/GIFT/COPY argument passing semantics. Optional DMalloc build support has been fixed. The fixed-size token buffer in scanner has been replaced with a dynamic buffer to eliminate the old 1024 size limit on tokens. Non-printable characters in derived error messages are escaped.
