lx_lib handles memory allocations as structures, keeping important information such as the remaining allocated space and the length of the used string internal to each variable (or descriptor).
Much of it was initially inspired by Dan Bernstein's stralloc library, but the two are not compatible, nor has there ever been any intention to make them compatible.
Here are some key features of "lx lib structural memory library":
strings need not be scanned to determine their length
the amount of allocated string remaining is easily determined
promotes more secure programming practices
if used correctly, lx_lib can offer a significant speed increase over traditional methods
easy-to-use methods for manipulating strings
generic descriptor support for buffered i/o
generic descriptors enable fast scanning of input for specific characters (e.g. a newline)
What's New in This Release:
