Platinum is highly modular and every module builds to a separate libray.
Library modules can depend on other modules and form a hierarchy. The
core module is relatively small and the extentions make up for the
most part of the library. This allows the programmer to select only
the parts of the framework, which are neccessary for an application.
Allocators, signals and delegates,
dates and times, serialization, text processing, unicode
support, regular expressions, smart pointers, settings
Event loops, system clocks, file system access, concurrency,
asnchronous I/O streams, shared libraries, plugins, logging,
pipes, file I/O, serial I/O, timers, multi-processing.
Asynchronous TCP clients and servers, asynchronous UDP
clients and servers, support for IP4, IP6 and other address
An embeddable, asynchronous, multi-threaded HTTP server,
An asynchronous HTTP client, authentication and authorization,
Access to request and reply headers.
Asynchronous SSL/TLS I/O streams, management of keys and
certificates, native SSL/TLS or OpenSSL based implementation
Stream-based, incremental XML parser and writer, XML
1.0/1.1 compliant including support for XML namespaces
and DTD validation.
Data-driven and protocol-driven unit testing is possible,
integrates into the build process, Configurable output
format for test.
Asnychronous XML-RPC web services and clients, embeddable
into applications, support for custom data types, using
Pt's serialization and HTTP support.
