What is this Hogweed?
Hogweed Software - Libraries

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.
