libLQ and/or Temp (recycling) formatted strings and blocks of memory

Posted 02-26-2012 at 11:02 AM by rainbowsally

[Note: this refers to an obsolete implementation of the temp strings and libLQ sources but the concept of being able to pass a buffer containing a formatted string directly in the parameter list makes this both interesting and important regardless.

Also the peek into the asm code may be helpful for folks wishing to get into the really low level stuff. See how we can redirect a call to sprintf() instead of calling vsprintf() below. This may not be portable but then neither can QT...

Simple C: some ideas on how to find headers, names, and a name demangler tool

Posted 02-08-2012 at 03:23 AM by rainbowsally

The simplest yet, I think.. at least the C program is.

Features:
  • tips on how to find C/C++ header paths and declarations
  • tips on how to find libs containing references and definitions
  • a super-simple program to demangle C++ names
----------------
Note: With even a simple automatic makefile generator such as the one built from sources in this blog (

Simple C: Beyond Bash Part 1 - String lists and pipes

Posted 01-26-2012 at 08:03 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 04-05-2012 at 07:54 PM by rainbowsally

[Note, this is marked for POSSIBLE deletion in the future by the author. This version is not exactly the same as the one in libLQ. In fact it may be removed a bit later, though it has some advantages over the the libLQ version in that it uses REAL char** types which behave exactly like any other char** type. The libLQ version monkeys with the base address in order to tuck an 'argc' below the first arg and thus avoid repeatedly literally 'count'-ing the string size. It is is a subclass of an...

Let's Go Retro Now, Everybody's Learning How...

Living on the "Trailing Edge" of computer development sometimes makes a LOT of sense.

1. Kdevelop 3 vs. 4.

The kde4 version of this ide/programming editor became a bit too ambitious, I think. Spitting out one perfect plasma widgets at the click of a button. But it's unrealistic to think that an automatic plasmoid creator will lead to programming prowess and many of the old features that were in kdevelop3 are sorely missed.

I'd take the graphical...
