Random musings on books, code, and tabletop games.

µstr - Micro String API - for C

I was very pleased to discover large parts of µstr compile and seem to work under VMS v5.5-2 with GCC 2.7.1, which is almost the only compiler available to me on that machine. The other is VAX BASIC, which has adequate simple string handling, but lacks advanced string handling and has only very painful facilities for dynamically allocating complex data structures and working with them.

[2019-11-09: I was writing a program to get e-mails from VMS Mail using the callable interface, then parse the body of the email into a form that could be further processed by POISE DMS programs.]
