libxcpc library implements an automatic resource cleanup and exception handling in C. Error handling and cleanup code (at least for code that does error handling) can take quite some space in terms of lines of code to be written. This not only increases the binary size, but makes the code more difficult to read. C++ has native exception handling, and this solves part of the problem, while keeping exposed the resource cleanup one. The libxcpc offers C++ like exception handling, plus automatic resource cleanup, to be used in software written in C. The libxcpc introduces three abstractions, that are Resource, Container and Exception. The Resource is every object (or action) that needs cleanup. This can be a block of allocated memory, an open file, a mapped memory region, etc... Every allocated Resource is owned by a Container. A Resource can be moved from a Container to another. A Container is a bucket inside which Resource are allocated. A Container can be the parent of other Containers, by hence introducing a parent/child relationship between Containers. A Container can be reassigned to be child of a new Container. By freeing a Container all the Resources allocated inside the Container will be freed, and all the child Containers will be recursively freed too. Resource Containers greatly simplify the resource cleanup code, by being able to issue a single call to free a Container and having automatically all the Resources contained by it, freed as well. Resources are added/removed in a LIFO (Last In First Out) way, and the libxcpc library offers APIs to re-arrange the order of the Resources inside their Contexts. An Exception is (like in C++) any kind of abnormal condition that prevent the program to flow in its path. This can be a failed memory allocation, a failure to open a file, a failure to mmap(2) a portion of a file, a failure to write(2) a file, etc... An Exception is described by a unique number (int) and by an associated data (void *). Exceptions are thrown using the XCPC_THROW(ctx, exno, data) statement, or re-thrown using XCPC_RETHROW(ctx). A nice feature of exception handling, is that it allows you to handle only certain kind of exceptions, and different exceptions in different points of your code tree. Using libxcpc library, you handle exceptions by surrounding the potentially-throwing code with the XCPC_TRY(ctx) statement. The code can then use either the XCPC_CATCH(exno) or the XCPC_CATCH_ANY statements to handle specific or all kind of exceptions that happened in the code bound by the XCPC_TRY(ctx). An Exception block must be terminated by a XCPC_END_TRY statement. If the current Exception block does not handle the current Exception using the XCPC_CATCH(exno) statement, and does not have a XCPC_CATCH_ANY statement, the libxcpc library backtrack to find a valid handler in the code at higher layers of the call hierarchy. It is important that at least the other Exception block uses a XCPC_CATCH_ANY statement, so that any Exceptions not caught by the code, is handled properly. When an Exception is caught by an handler, all the resources allocated by the code from the beginning of the XCPC_TRY(ctx) block, down to the place where the Exception is thrown, are automatically freed once the handler reaches the XCPC_END_TRY statement. Whats New in This Release: - This release adds new system calls wrappers and fixes a few minor bugs..
