Are there any open source C libraries with common data structures? [closed]


BSD queue.h has:

  • SLIST = singly linked list
  • LIST = doubly linked list
  • SIMPLEQ = singly linked queue
  • TAILQ = doubly linked queue

BSD tree.h has:

  • RB - red-black tree
  • SPLAY - splay tree

See the queue(3) and tree(3) man pages for details. I really like them because they are pure C macros without dependencies (not even libc). Plus with the BSD license you don't have to worry about any company restrictions w/ GPL.


Gnome provides an excellent library for this, called Glib, with many useful data structures and other utilities as well.


gnulib, the gnu portability library.

It's distributed as source code.This list is from its module list, which includes a TON of other things. One interesting one is "c-stack: Stack overflow handling, causing program exit."
