BZFlag is a 3D, multiplayer, tank battle zone, capture the flag game that pits players against each other in a networked environment. It runs on Windows 95/98/NT/2000, Linux, MacOS 10.x, Irix, Solaris, and others. An OpenGL accelerator is highly recommended, but it is playable with 3D in software.
e3 is a full-screen, user-friendly text editor with an interface similar to that of either WordStar, Emacs, Pico, Nedit, or vi. It's heavily optimized for size and independent of libc or any other libraries, making it useful for mini-Linux distributions and rescue disks. The assembler version supports Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Win9x, QNX, Atheos, BeOS, ELKS, and DOS. There is also a separately distributed version written in C which supports some other Unix versions and CygWin. It is also possible to use regular expressions by using child processes like sed. e3 has a built in arithmetic calculator.
An almost ISO C compatible C compiler that produces binaries for 6502-based computers. Targets that are supported out of the box are: Apple ][, Atari 8-bit machines, Commodore C64/C128/C16/C116, Commodore Plus/4, Commodore 600/700, GEOS for C64, and Lynx. The package includes a complete suite of assembler development tools (assembler, linker, archiver) which allows mixing of C and assembler code.
Q is a powerful and extensible functional programming language based on the term rewriting calculus. When programming with Q, you specify a system of equations which the interpreter uses as rewrite rules to reduce expressions to normal form. Q is useful for scientific programming and other advanced applications, and also as a sophisticated kind of desktop calculator. The distribution includes the Q programming tools, a standard library, add-on modules for interfacing to various third-party libraries, and an Emacs mode.
Heroes is similar to the "Tron" and "Nibbles" games of yore, but includes many graphical improvements and new game features including 12 original soundtracks, 94 levels (in 10 different tilesets), and five gaming modes including Quest (the classical Nibbles), or Kill'em all (squish the lemmings).
xplain2sql converts files from Xplain to SQL. It supports a very large subset of Xplain, and it can convert from Xplain to Microsoft SQL Server, DB/2, Inprise InterBase, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MySQL 5, SQLite 3 or ANSI-92 SQL. It can also generate an XML description of the generated SQL. This XML description can be used to create low-level middle-tier code. Example stylesheets for Eiffel/ECLI and Delphi/ADO are included. The C source code release should compile on any platform with an ANSI C compiler. There are binary releases for FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris x86, and Windows 2000.
rsyncbackup is a handy tool for scheduled backups using rsync. rsyncbackup lets you easily setup multiple source folders and destinations, both locally, on your iPod or external firewire disk, or at a remote destination using ssh. rsyncbackup has no GUI, but is based on editing configuration files. The script is meant to be run in a crontab, so user interaction is not neccesary. Basic terminal skills are required to use the program.
