I'd like to see Phong Vo's sfio library packaged for easy use by
Debian programmers.  This software is extraordinarily flexible and
performant, and I believe Debian developers will benefit materially by
having it easily available.  (The upstream install process is baroque.)


I've listed the information page as the URL;
the download page is http://www2.research.att.com/sw/download/.
What I'm really keen to have is the sfio library, but I have no
problem if someone wants to package the entire ast-ast library, which
is the way it is bundled upstream.  All of that stuff is pretty useful.

  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Phong Vo's Safe Fast I/O Library (AT&T Advanced Software Technology)

Sfio is a library for managing I/O streams. It provides functionality
similar to that of Stdio, the ANSI C Standard I/O library, but via a
distinct interface that is more powerful, robust and efficient.
Features include thread safety, adaptive buffering, and efficient
algorithms for reading and writing numbers.  Available features to
enhance performance include direct access to stream buffers to avoid
copying, and operations that read and scan lines or records of any
length, avoiding buffer overflow automatically.
