Boost - Build Static and Shared LibraryLibraries can be either static, which means they are included in executable files that use them, or shared (a.k.a. dynamic), which are only referred to from executables, and must be available at run time. Boost.Build can create and use both kinds. The kind of library produced from a lib target is determined by the value of the link feature.
libwwwlibcurl is considered to be a modern replacement for libwww. History From 25 November 1994 (version 2.17) Henrik Frystyk Nielsen was responsible for libwww.

Street Life in LondonPage contents > John Thomson | PDF version | Images | Historypin Street Life in London, published in 1876-7, consists of a series of articles by the radical journalist Adolphe Smith and the photographer John Thomson. The pieces are short but full of detail, based on interviews with a range of men and women who eked out a precarious and marginal existence working on the streets of London, including flower-sellers, chimney-sweeps, shoe-blacks, chair-caners, musicians, dustmen and locksmiths. The subject matter of Street Life was not new – the second half of the 19th century saw an increasing interest in urban poverty and social conditions – but the unique selling point of Street Life was a series of photographs ‘taken from life’ by Thomson. The authors felt at the time that the images lent authenticity to the text, and their book is now regarded as a key work in the history of documentary photography. John Thomson

HTTrack allows users to download World Wide Web sites from the Internet to a local computer. By default, HTTrack arranges the downloaded site by the original site's relative link-structure. The downloaded (or "mirrored") website can be browsed by opening a page of the site in a browser. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is configurable by options and by filters (include/exclude), and has an integrated help system.
Middleware MagicRené van Wijk In this post we show a step-by-step example of how to set-up a high available tuned Java EE environment. We start with installing a Java Virtual Machine (in this case HotSpot) and JBoss Application Server. We continue with configuring a standalone server, tune the operating system and the Java Virtual Machine. Subsequently, we show how to set-up data source and JMS resources that are used by an application (consisting of a servlet, persistence, a stateless enterprise bean and a message-driven bean).DevIL - A full featured cross-platform Image LibraryAbout DevIL Many people may have known DevIL as OpenIL, but the name was changed due to SGI's request. Developer's Image Library (DevIL) is a programmer's library to develop applications with very powerful image loading capabilities, yet is easy for a developer to learn and use. Ultimate control of images is left to the developer, so unnecessary conversions, etc. are not performed. DevIL utilizes a simple, yet powerful, syntax. DevIL can load, save, convert, manipulate, filter and display a wide variety of image formats.

MySQL++MySQL++ is a C++ wrapper for MySQL’s C API. It is built around the same principles as the Standard C++ Library, to make dealing with the database as easy as dealing with STL containers. In addition, MySQL++ provides facilities that let you avoid the most repetitive sorts of SQL within your own code, providing native C++ interfaces for these common tasks.Library WidgetsHere’s a look at the space immediately behind my cup of redbush: Core Technologies: Groovy and Grails!
