In addition to full-fledged applications, Hogweed also intends to offer a
number of free, open source libraries which (I hope!) will make writing
your own applications easier. At the moment, the following are planned:
- The Hogweed Grid Reference Library - C++ classes to make
dealing with UK grid references, as well as linking them in with visual
software, easy. This is currently available as part of
Mapmaker; it will appear as a download
in its own right shortly.
- 2D Game Library - C++ classes, designed to be used in conjunction
with the SDL multimedia library, to make
coding simple two-dimensional arcade games easier. Includes classes
representing heroes, monsters and game arenas. Being developed in
conjunction with the CONVICT
project; still in an early stage but an initial version will appear here soon.
