Input/Output Library

I developed a replacement for input-output operations in the C programming language. The library converts all INTEGER data types and a custom algorithm with accurate precision for floating-point numbers, including printing them in decimal and hexadecimal form. The library is generic and type-safe in solid contrast to unsafe standard C utilities, which is achieved by using top-of-the-line features in the C programming language, like the '_Generic' keyword introduced in C11. The library relies on features of the m4 preprocessor for templating support. The build and test suite are written in CMake.

Toward INTEGER Safety – CKD Library

I have implemented a future addition to the C programming language that checks and correctly handles overflow on operations on standard INTEGER data types. The library presents knowledge of C programming language and expertise in handling and representing data in modern computers, taking special care for optimization. It is based on a proposition by David Svoboda available at open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg14/www/docs/n2683.pdf.

Bash Library

This library written in Bash contains a collection of standard and helpful shell scripting utilities meant to increase productivity, promote the best practices in Bash shell scripting, and provide ease-of-use to some cryptic shell utilities and workaround.
