Pure C and Library Versions

Postby TheNameOfTheGame » Tue Feb 23, 2016 8:08 am

What is the method to determine the details of a particular .LIB file in the LIB folder?

Example: I have GEM.LIB. I know it is gemlib-0.44.0-purec because I downloaded it myself.

But how would I know the details for any random .LIB?

i.e. I have some source code with LIBs already included but I don't know what they are?

There is no way. Some lib like GEMLib or MiNTLib have the string "patchlevel" inside after this string stand the name.

There's really no universal standard, at least nothing dating back to the mid/late 80's, for specifying a version number for a library.

The LIBs that I was wondering about were:

ACS.LIB
EASC.LIB
MAGICLIB.LIB
MAGXLIB.LIB
SOCKLIB.LIB
SOZOMEM.LIB

Would you know anything about these?

An old version for ACS.

From TrueMagiC, is a shared library.

TheNameOfTheGame wrote:MAGXLIB.LIB

An old lib for the new function from MagiC.

TheNameOfTheGame wrote:SOCKLIB.LIB

Socket lib for program which use Iconnect. The latest version is in the Emailer source archive.

TheNameOfTheGame wrote:SOZOMEM.LIB

Looks like a memory lib from Sobozon C.

But when you look only the socklib.lib is used from your list.
