This library contains several Java classes which can be useful in
many areas. They include:
- This class, when used in conjunction with the jcgi program, allows one to build a
CGI program in java.
- The FormatString class implements some of the functionality of
sprintf() that is missing from the standard Java library. It
has only static methods called "format" that return a String.
Since Java doesn't allow for a variable number of arguments to a
method, the methods are restricted to doing only one formatting
operation at the time. All the sprintf() formatting operations
are supported like: %s, %d, %x, %X, %o, %g, and %f
Most of the modifiers are also supported: %5s, %-5s, %02d, etc.
Only the floating point formatting still needs work.
- This class is an InputStream which deals with ASCII input. As
opposed to DataInputStream, the ASCIIInputStream is used to
interpret ASCII representations of data. So whereas the
DataInputStream can read 4 bytes and convert it into an integer,
ASCIIInputStream will read ASCII numbers and convert them into
an integer. It basically emulates scanf() from the standard C
library although it is not as flexible.
- sdsu.io. Console
- This class provides simple methods for reading from the stantard input
and writing to the standard output. Input is done via statements like
Console.readInt() and Console.readInt( "Prompt string" ). No exceptions
are thrown on input errors. Modeled after similar class in Core Java by
Gary Cornell and Cay S. Horstmann.
- sdsu.io. Format
- A class for formatting numbers that follows printf conventions. Also
implements C-like atoi and atof functions. This class is from
Core Java by Gary Cornell and Cay S. Horstmann
In addition to these, the MsqlJava library has also been included.
This library resides in the msql package.
