Project Summary

What is it?The proplib library provides an abstract interface for creating and manipulating property lists. Property lists have object types for boolean values, opaque data, numbers, and strings. Structure is provided by the array and dictionary collection types.

Property lists can be passed across protection boundaries by translating them to an external representation. This external representation is an XML document whose format is described by the following DTD:

About this versionThe portable proplib version is the same version than is available on NetBSD, but with the exception that NetBSD specific code has been removed and it has been converted to be built through the GNU autotools. Also some miscellaneous changes have been done to not depend on stuff that is not available in all systems.

It should be mentioned that NetBSD's proplib code is a free, clean room and from scratch implementation, based in the specifications available for Mac OS X, written by Jason R. Thorpe.

I'd like to thank Jason R. Thorpe for such a great library.
