"safe" C libc extensions (Annex K) - dev

This library implements controversial C11 Annex K (TR24731) extensions. They are most commonly known as _s variants implemented by MSVC, dubbed as "secure" to the point of MSVC-related linters claiming standard functions to be deprecated. However, they've been nearly-universally panned by other libc implementors, the most recent discussion about Annex K removal and/or deprecation being N1967. It is recommended to avoid using these functions -- they're either prone to misuse or merely inefficient (measuring a string's length twice being the most frequent case).

Yet despite these downsides, it is nice to have these functions available when porting some software that originated on Windows.

This package includes development headers.
