Someone made an overview of the Netscape portable runtime (a little outdated, 1999) in powerpoint here

API Reference

You can get the reference to the API here

Test Cases

You can get test cases from the Mozilla LXR. The filenames are self explanitory on what API components are tested (eg threads, locks, time). If in doubt, read the README.TXT file which lists all the files and what components they test. They are also meant as example code that is well commented.

Technical Notes

There are several notes on developing NSPR. For example, about forks, killing threads, and porting NSPR to a new platform.

Getting in contact


The maintainers have irregular scheduled telephone meetings on Tuesdays. This requires contacting the maintainers for information.


There is also a newsgroup available here news://news.mozilla.org/netscape.public.mozilla.nspr
