SetiContainer is a C++ class that allows convenient access to all the information in the state files of a SETI@home client. It periodically examines these files and updates its own data members accordingly. Other programs can use this class to extract information about the progress of the client, the found signals, or the work unit being processed. Additional functions offer more advanced info (like the amount of TeraFlops in a work unit, estimated time of completion, etc.). The SetiContainer class is based on the Qt toolkit, and extensively uses Qt's Signal/Slot technique.

x10ephem computes sunrise and sunset times. It consists of a library and an assortment of utilities. The most useful utility is x10events, which parses crontab files and updates the time fields to track sun events. Combined with an X10 interface like HEYU or X10, this allows the scheduling of lighting events to follow the changing seasons and daylight savings time automatically. This application does not depend on X10; it can be used for any crontab entry you like.
