Astro::Aladin is a an object-oriented interface into the resources provided by the CDS Aladin project. The Aladin Java application is driven in script mode using an anonymous pipe, while high level access to resources is provided by the module which disguises the mechanics of the data access.
BOTEC is a simple but useful calculator that assists with astrophysical, orbital mechanics, and space navigation calculations. It is a "back-of-the-envelope calculator" rather than an industrial-strength calculator, although this may change in the future. It is primarily intended for people familiar with physics and Python, and as such is unlikely to be useful to the average end user. It includes solar system data, and all values are strictly in SI units.
CFITSIO is a library of C and Fortran subroutines for reading and writing data files in the FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) data format. It simplifies the task of writing software that deals with FITS files by providing an easy to use set of high-level routines that insulate the programmer from the internal complexities of the FITS file format.
Cactus is a general, modular, parallel environment for solving systems of partial differential equations. The code has been developed over many years by a large international collaboration of numerical relativity and computational science research groups and can be used to provide a portable platform for solving any system of partial differential equations.
GraphPak is a programming library of 2D and 3D charting objects for the Qt toolkit. It provides software developers with a set of C++ objects to easily create charts or graphs that aid in the visual presentation of technical and business data. This release includes Bar, Line, Pie, Ring, Area, Hi-Lo, Box and Whisker, and Polar charts. It is based on the KD Chart product from Klarälvdalens Datakonsult AB.
Hijra Islamic Calendar هجرة is an application for viewing the Islamic calendar (also known as Hijri calendar). It features a GUI with a tray applet. It includes both a high-level OOP library and a low-level library which can be used to implement other software that makes use of this type of calendar. It uses a special algorithm which gives much better precision than other known algorithms. It uses integer operations to avoid round off errors in floating point operations.
