Wuffs' Example Programs

This directory contains example programs that use Wuffs the Library. See Hello wuffs-c for an example program that uses Wuffs the Language and its wuffs-c compiler.

Other than the toy-* examples, all of these programs do real work. They‘re not just programming language toys at the “calculate the Fibonacci sequence” level of triviality. For example, the example/crc32 and example/zcat programs are roughly equivalent to Debian Linux’s /usr/bin/crc32 and /bin/zcat programs.


Running build-example.sh from the top level directory will build all of the examples. To check out and build just one, such as jsonptr:

git clone https://github.com/google/wuffs.git
cd wuffs
./build-example.sh example/jsonptr

When re-building, you only need the last of those three lines. To run it:

gen/bin/example-jsonptr test/data/json-things.unformatted.json
