Introduction to Rudiments

In the early days of SQL Relay and Groundwork, some of the classes being developed for each project didn't exactly fit. Or more precisely, could concievably be useful in other projects. Some of these classes were very generic base classes, others were utilities. The older the projects got, the more obvious it became that these classes should be extracted and assembled into a library of their own.

Rudiments was born.

As a result, some of the rudiments classes are fairly full featured and others very incomplete; containing only the functions that were required by the project they were derived from.

Rudiments is very much a work in progress, and not extremely well defined at that. Currently though, the objective of the project is to develop a set of utility classes that provide the functionality of the standard C libraries through an object oriented interface and a set of useful base classes for some standard kinds of programs.
