in the process, identify a gnarly problem that was not only not found by the test suite, there was a test testing for the wrong behavior!
libowfat is a library of general purpose APIs extracted from Dan Bernstein's software, reimplemented and covered by the GNU General Public License Version 2 (no later versions). The API has been slightly extended (for example, I provide a uint32_read function, and I extended the socket API to support IPv6) where I found it necessary or beneficial in a specific project. Many of the functions I implement here have since been placed in the public domain, so there are other sources to get this code (except for my extensions obviously). The implementations here may not be as portable as the original versions; I tend to focus on the Single Unix Specification and not on some obsolete legacy systems found in the basements of some vintage hardware clubs. I also provide man pages for many functions, mostly extracted from Dan's web documentation or documentation found in earlier versions of his software. For some reason, he abandoned man pages in favor of HTML recently. On July 4 2002, Dan also placed his DNS routines and supporting low level functions in the public domain, so I copy them here instead of reimplementing them. http://online.securityfocus.com/archive/1/280642 has an online version of the bugtraq posting.
