ExternalSort is a class that can sort large files similar to the Unix sort command. It can read the file to be sorted in small buckets associated with temporary files to not exceed the configured PHP memory limits. The buckets are sorted individually and then merged to produce the final sorted output. The class provides command line interface options so it can be executed as a command from a shell.
Multi-Sandbox Lua Engine (MSLE) is a modified Lua interpreter which supports creation and maintenance of multiple "100% tight" sandboxes from within Lua. "100% tight" means that the amount of memory used by a sandbox (counting both code and data) is strictly limited, a feature Lua did not offer before.
PHP Debug is single API for tracing PHP applications. With a single file of only 200 lines, you can add, with minimal impact, diagnostics to be displayed upon program termination. Each diagnostic contains file, function, and caller function information. You just need to include the debug.php file and add debug() calls throughout your code in the same way as var_dump(). The diagnostic messages are stored and displayed in a list. Diagnostics can be disabled and controlled. It's small and simple yet very versatile.
Pylot is a tool for testing the performance and scalability of Web services. It runs HTTP load tests, which are useful for capacity planning, benchmarking, analysis, and system tuning. It generates concurrent loads, verifies server responses, and produces reports with metrics. Tests suites are executed and monitored from a GUI or the shell.
Pyrseas provides a framework and utilities to upgrade and maintain a relational database.
