GNAT (formerly the GNU NYU Ada Translator) is a full Ada compiler and runtime library supporting Ada 2005, Ada 95, and Ada 83. It is a full implementation of the language, including all of the optional Annexes of the Language Reference Manual. It is based on GCC technology, and has source, pre-packaged releases, and several additional Ada tools available. The runtime has a modified GPL so that your applications don't have to be GPLed automatically.
The fontutils package includes the programs bpltobzr, bzrto, charspace, fontconvert, gsrenderfont, imageto, imgrotate, limn, and xbfe. These create fonts for use with Ghostscript or TeX (starting with a scanned type image and converting the bitmaps to outlines), convert between font formats, etc. The package also includes the libraries libbzr.a, libgf.a, libpbm.a, libpk.a, libtfm.a, and libwidgets.a.
GNU Phantom.Home is a computer controlled home automation system. The software includes a circuit diagram for building the Phantom.Home.Controller, a simple circuit board that attaches to your PC's parallel port. Using the combination of hardware/software you can control (i.e. flip on or off) nearly any 120V device. And with a little bit of electronics know-how, you can probably control nearly any device at any voltage by modifying the circuit board to meet your needs. The simple circuit included can be created and built for around $25. The modules cost around $10 (basically a heavy duty relay).
GNU Phantom.Security is a computer-controlled security system. Using the software and a simple circuit board (diagram included) that you build, you can create a good basic security system that is computer controlled. The system can use off-the-shelf security devices like motion sensors, door magnets, and fire/smoke detectors with little to moderate modification. You can have a total of 5 devices per port. And if the machine the system is running on is connected to a LAN/WAN or the Internet, you can have it send e-mail. If you have a pager or cell phone capable of receiving e-mail, then you will have around the clock intrusion/fire detection for your home or office.
Pipo-BBS allows you to install a BBS server and clients. You can chat via a nice interface with an unlimited number of people (as with IRC). This software is in a pre-release state; it is still very alpha, and can be difficult to even compile. It works under linux, MkLinux, SGI, HP-UX, and Solaris. The only interface for this BBS is telnet for the moment; an interface using GTK has been started. It has been translated into French, English, Spanish and German.
GNU Robots is a game/diversion where you construct a program for a little robot, then watch him explore a world. The world is filled with baddies that can hurt you, objects that you can bump into, and food that you can eat. The goal of the game is to collect as many prizes as possible before you are killed by a baddie or you run out of energy.
SQL Server is a free portable multiuser relatational database management system. It supports the full SQL89 dialect and has some extensions from SQL92. It provides multiuser access and transaction isolation based on predicative locks. The working OS: UNIX. The working language: C . It also uses RPC, shared memory and message queues.
The Standard C++ Library v3, or libstc++-2.90.x, is an ongoing project to implement the ISO 14882 Standard C++ library as described in chapters 17 through 27 and annex D, as a drop-in replacement for the current (ARM-conformant) library. The Standard C++ Library v3, or libstc++-2.90.x, follows an open development model, attempting to be fully buzzword, bazaar, and GNU compliant.
Trueprint is a program for printing source code in a variety of languages (C is the best supported) and other text files to postscript printers. It supports a wealth of options to support printing source code, such as diff-marking, line numbers, indentation levels, file and function indices, and many others.
