Library to make string handling easier in C

libfirestring is a string handling library that provides maximum length aware string handling functions to programs. Several functions provide saner interfaces than the standard libc functions. libfirestring also provides functions that are in most libc’s but not provided for by ANSI C, enabling programmers to write ANSI C-compliant code while using such safe functions strcasecmp, strncasecmp, snprintf.

libfirestring also includes functions for dealing with reading configuration files in an easy to program fashion.

This library uses long long, which is part of the C99 standard previously a GNU extension. Your compiler needs to support this in order for FireString to work.
