Gwenhywfar includes the following features, among several others

  • OS abstraction functions for directory and Internet address handling and library loading src/os/
  • Networking functions which allow managing many connections to be used economically even in single threaded applications
  • High-level functions for parsing files with a simplified “XML-like” format and accessing them like a hierarchical database src/parser/ It is able to process valid XML files, too.
  • High-level cryptographic functions on top of OpenSSL functionality src/crypt/
