JavaAutotoolsExample is an example of a Java Swing program that uses GNU Gettext, Autoconf, Automake, Make, and Java JNI. JavaAutotoolsExample is intended to help Java developers and maintainers make their full-featured Java programs respect the standard "./configure && make && sudo make install" procedure for build and installation.
Crules is a dynamic programming language that takes influences from Python, Perl, and Haskell. The main motivation for this language was the concept or design of a new paradigm or feature called "rules". A rule is a potential entry point which has dependencies rather than parameters. Any rule can be overridden to have different or no dependencies. Since the language itself can decide on the best course of actions for an operation, dependencies become preconditions for execution. It also features lazy evaluation, object orientation, variadic and anonymous-parameter functions, and reflection. These features help make the language truly dynamic.
The acscripts library contains a set of helper scripts that can be used by package configure scripts. This library enables common functions to be used from one central location, rather than being duplicated across packages. This provides simplified system maintenance, because build functions are centralized, and smaller packages, because build functions are no longer in packages.
