  • cosmopolitan

    build-once run-anywhere c library

    Project mention: Cosmopolitan v3.5.0 | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-06-23

    The rationale is explained in this README [1], but it basically boils down to transitive dependencies and the amount of checks the compiler has to do. From linked README:

    "If we `#include ` for the LLVM libcxx header containing the `std::string` class, then the compiler needs to consider 4,800 `#include` lines. Most of them are edges it'll discount since they've already been included but the sum total of files that get included is 694!"

  • libarchive

    Multi-format archive and compression library

    Project mention: Jia Tan "JiaT75": Added error text to warning when untaring with bsdtar | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-07-17

    Wild. All of these carefully inserted “seemingly innocuous” changes in the ecosystem to end up contributing to a wider exploit.

  • zip

    A portable, simple zip library written in C (by kuba--)

  • Minizip-ng

    Fork of the popular zip manipulation library found in the zlib distribution.

  • TurboBench

    Compression Benchmark

    Project mention: Zstd Content-Encoding planned to ship with Chrome 123 | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-07

    I'm still unconvinced about this addition. And I don't even dislike Zstandard.

    The main motivation seems to be that while Zstandard is worse than Brotli at the highest level, it's substantially faster than Brotli when data has to be compressed on the fly with a limited computation budget. That might be true, but I'm yet to see any concrete or even anecdotal evidence even in the issue tracker [1] while there exist some benchmarks where both Zstandard and Brotli are fast enough for the web usage even at lower levels [2].

    According to their FAQ [3] Meta and Akamai have successfully used Zstandard in their internal network, but my gut feeling is that they never actually tried to optimize Brotli instead. In fact, Meta employs the main author of Zstandard so it would have been easier to tune Zstandard instead of Brotli. While Brotli has some fundamental difference from Zstandard (in particular Brotli doesn't use arithmetic-equivalent coding), no one has concretely demonstrated that difference would prevent Brotli from being fast enough for dynamic contents in my opinion.
