DragonFly belongs to the same class of operating systems as other BSD-derived systems and Linux. It is based on the same Unix ideals and APIs and shares ancestor code with other BSD operating systems. DragonFly is differentiated from other operating systems in its class by, among others, the HAMMER file system, Virtual Kernels, swapcache, and the pervasive use of soft token locks. DragonFly provides an opportunity for the BSD base to grow in an entirely different direction from the ones taken in the FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD series.
CUT is a unit-testing framework for C, C++, and Objective-C. Unlike other unit testing tools, CUT doesn't strive to be an SUnit clone. It automates a lot of the drudge work often encountered when using other unit testing packages for the C family of programming languages. CUT may also be used to unit-test assembly language software in some circumstances.
Aasm is an advanced modular assembler designed to support several target architectures. It has been designed to be easily extended. Its global architecture takes advantages of dynamic libraries to provide input, assembler and output modules. The input module supports Intel syntax (like nasm, tasm, masm, etc.). The x86 assembler module supports all opcodes up to P6 including MMX, SSE and 3DNow! extensions. F-CPU and SPARC assembler modules are under development. Several output modules are available for ELF, COFF, IntelHex, and raw binary formats. Advanced features include symbol scopes, an expressions engine, big integer support, macro capability, and numerous and accurate warning messages (over 300).
Kerrighed is a Single System Image operating system (SSI) for clusters. It offers the view of a unique SMP machine on top of a cluster of standard PCs. The goals are high performance of applications, high availability of the cluster, efficient resource management, high customizability of the operating system, and ease of use. It is implemented as an extension to Linux operating system (a set of Linux modules and a small patch to the kernel).
The GRASP Project has created an algorithmic-level graphical representation for software called the Control Structure Diagram (CSD). The CSD was created to improve the comprehension efficiency of Ada source code and, as a result, improve software reliability and reduce software costs. Since its creation, the CSD has been expanded and adapted to include other languages. GRASP provides the capability to generate CSD's from Ada 95, C, C++, Java, and VHDL source code in both a reverse and forward engineering mode with a level of flexibility suitable for professional application. GRASP has been integrated with the GNU family of compilers for Ada (GNAT) and C (gcc), and Sun's javac compiler for Java. Use of GRASP is not restricted to these compilers, however. This has resulted in a comprehensive graphically-based development environment for these languages. The user may view, edit, print, and compile source code as CSDs with no discernible addition to storage or computational overhead.
The bastard disassembler is a disassembler written for x86 ELF targets on Linux. Other file formats/CPUs can be 'plugged in'. It has a command-line interface and is meant to be used as a backend or engine. Support for controlling the disassembler via pipes is provided. Note that this disassembler does not rely on libopcodes to do its disassembly. Rather, the 'libi386' plugin is a standard .so that can be reused by other projects.
Eckbox is van Eck Phreaking tool that interprets a radio signal emanating from a computer's monitor to recreate the image (in black and white) that is displayed on it. It could be used as a valuable security tool for testing otherwise secure computers or for developing hardware and software to counter this type of remote shoulder-surfing. It is not intended to be used for illegal purposes, and includes information on the hardware required.
