The GNU Objective C Class Library
This project is now a part of GNUStep. Please see GNUStep. The GNU Objective C Class Library will implement the non-graphical of GNUstep. The GNUstep project is the Free Software Foundation's effort to implement a free-software version of NeXT's OpenStep standard. Libobjects is still in the development stages, but it already contains well over 60 classes of the GNUstep FoundationKit, and over 60,000 lines of code including both GNU and FoundationKit classes. The GNU classes in the library feature:

  • Collection objects for maintaining groups of objects,
  • strings for handling collections of characters,
  • Streams for I/O to various destinations,
  • Coders for formating objects and C types to byte streams,
  • ports for network packet transmission,
  • Distributed objects(remote object messaging),
  • pseudo-random number generators,
  • and time handling facilities.
