Telemeta is a global audio archiving program which introduces useful and secure indexing methods to back up digitized audio files and metadata dictionaries. It is dedicated to backing up any digitized and documented sound from collections of vinyls, magnetic tapes, or audio CDs over a strong database in accordance with many standards. Export functions also encapsulate edited metadata into a compressed file. The object style architecture provides easy developed user-friendly interfaces and a plugin style audio processing.
MPIBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses MPI and achieves significant speedup on cluster machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 1.0.2 or newer (i.e. anything compressed with MPIBZIP2 can be decompressed with bzip2).
Optar is a software codec that generates 2D bar codes for data storage on paper using a black and white laser printer and scanner. It fits 200kB on an A4 page, uses Golay forward error correction codes to ensure reliability, and can also be used to store data on photographic film.
Genetic Algorithm File Fitter, GAFFitter for short, is a tool based on a genetic algorithm (GA) that tries to fit a collection of items into as few as possible volumes of a specific size. For example, the items might be files/directories and the volumes might be CDs or DVDs. The task of arranging items in such manner that the number of required bins is minimized is called Bin Packing, a NP-hard combinatorial problem for which no deterministic polynomial-time algorithm is known. Using heuristics, such as GAs, it is usually possible to approximate -- and often reach -- the best solution for the problem within a reasonable time.
PBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses pthreads and achieves near-linear speedup on SMP machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 1.0.2 or newer (ie: anything compressed with PBZIP2 can be decompressed with bzip2).
AntFlow builds upon Apache Ant to provide a new approach to simplifying system automation that uses pipelines of hot folders chained together to perform a given task. Using XML, it associates an automated task such as data transfer, encryption, or XML processing with a directory on the local system. Whenever a file is copied or written into the hot folder, the associated task is executed and the file is moved to the next hot folder in the pipeline for further processing.
QML (Quantity Modeling Language) is a "thing"-based language for scientific and mathematical data modeling. Each "thing" is a quantity which may be associated with either a structure or physical phenomena. Quantities, in turn, may hold other Quantities or values (numbers or strings). Higher-level data models, which associate or define meanings to various quantities (such as velocity or position), can be built from QML quantities. The higher-level data model (XML) schema that inherits from QML may be understood, and its instance documents may be parsed into QML documents and objects by the QMLReader.
