C++-gtk-utils, Library containing a containing classes and functions for programming GTK+ programs using C++.

Updated by cvine on Monday, October 6, 2014.

C++-gtk-utils is a lightweight library containing a number of classes and functions for programming GTK+ programs using C++ in POSIX environments, where the user does not want to use a full-on wrapper such as gtkmm or wxWidgets. It provides classes for managing the lifetimes of GTK+ widgets and windows that will make GTK+ exception safe, functions to make single instance programs where restarting will bring up the existing instance, smart pointer classes for memory management, thread-safe signal/slot classes with automatic disconnection, classes for using std iostreams with files opened with Unix file descriptors, functions for connecting a callback object and a Unix file descriptor to the main loop with provision for automatic disconnection, classes and functions for inter-thread communication, some convenience pthread wrapper classes, a class encapsulating anonymous Unix pipes, a class to reassemble UTF-8 sent over pipes and sockets and to convert codesets, and classes for printing postscript files and plain text using the GTK+ print system.

Platforms: linux, BSD, Solaris
Requirements: glib >= 2.10.0, gtk+2 >= 2.10.0 or gtk+3 >=2.90.0, POSIX 1003.1-2001
