Filaments is a library package that can be used to create architecture-independent parallel programs, i.e. programs that are portable and efficient across vastly different parallel machines. Programs can be written (or generated) with the focus on the parallelism inherent in the application, not the architecture. Also, programs can be written that use familiar shared-variable communication. Furthermore, Filaments uses a carefully designed API along with machine-specific runtime libraries and preprocessing that allow programs to run unchanged on both shared- and distributed-memory machines. Most importantly, applications programmed in Filaments run efficiently, achieving a speedup of over 4 on 8 processors or nodes in almost all tests that have been performed.
Figaro's Password Manager (FPM) is a GNOME application that allows you to securely store your passwords, which are encrypted with the blowfish algorithm. It allows you to copy passwords or usernames to the clipboard or primary selection. If a password is for a Web site, FPM can keep track of the URLs of your login screens and can automatically launch your browser. You can also teach FPM to launch other applications. FPM can sort your passwords into categories. Finally, it has a password generator that can help you choose good passwords.
FIDOGATE is a Fido-Internet gateway and a Fido tosser. The gateway converts between the worlds of Fido NetMail/EchoMail (or FTNs, Fido Technology Networks in general) and the UNIX mail/news system. FIDOGATE will convert Fido mail packets to RFC822/1036-style messages and vice versa.
Ficl (Forth inspired command language) is an ANS Forth interpreter written in C. Unlike traditional Forths, this interpreter is designed to be embedded into other systems as a command/macro/development prototype language. Ficl provides object extensions that can be used to wrap methods and structures of the host system without altering them.
Fiasco is a microkernel with real-time capabilities running on the x86 and ARM platforms. It is compatible with the L4 microkernel, which has set standards in microkernel performance and functionality. Fiasco is a fully-featured and secure L4 implementation with excellent real-time properties. It can run L4Linux, a port of the Linux kernel to the L4 interface which executes completely in user mode. The screenshot shows the DOpE real-time windowing environment running on top of Fiasco, with an instance of L4Linux running in one of the windows.
fhttpd is an FTP/HTTP server with modules support. Modules run as separate "looping" processes locally or remotely, and can be configured to run under separate userids. Locally running modules can be configured to use fd passing of client's connection to avoid overhead in sending the response. ~username URL to directory remapping is supported in HTTP, and can be configured to access files, run scripts and modules under mapped user's userid.
