Welcome to Atlas-C++, the C++ reference implementation of the Atlas protocol.
Many current programs use older version of Atlas-C++:
Make fresh checkout to clean directory:

This library implements the Atlas protocol, for use in client-server
game applications. This library is suitable for linking to either
clients or servers.
This is Atlas-C++ 0.5.9x, the latest development version of Atlas-C++. The
0.4.x branch will contain NO API CHANGES. The 0.5.9x branch is completely
experimental and may not be easy to track. Any changes affecting the API
should go into 0.5.9x, as should any features which are not completely
stable. 0.6.0 will be the next stable branch.
Atlas-C++ relies on iostreams being used as socket streams for network
communications. This means you will need to either use an existing library
or use your own.
One such a library is skstream, which you can download at:
To generate the documentation, simply configure the tree, then in Atlas-C++/
type "make docs". This will use doxygen to generate the documentation, which
will then reside in Atlas-C++/doc/.
