579d0169 13Description: A library of miscellaneous stuff
14 The mLib library provides various handy utilities, including
15 * yet another options parser, like GNU getopt but more so;
16 * a simple but efficient universal hashing family;
17 * a suite for writing event-driven select-based servers;
18 * a simple exception-handling system, based on longjmp;
19 * dynamically resizing strings and arrays;
20 * a resizing hashtable;
21 * base64 and hex encoding and decoding; and
22 * a simple background DNS resolver.
23 .
579d0169 24 Not all of the features of mLib are available (or, indeed, very useful) in
25 Python. For example, Python has its own exception system, and different
26 ideas about how strings work.
