ANTLR (ANother Tool for Language Recognition) is a language tool that provides a framework for constructing recognizers, compilers, and translators from grammatical descriptions containing C++, Java, or Sather actions. It is similar to the popular compiler generator YACC, however ANTLR is much more powerful and easy to use. ANTLR-produced parsers are not only highly efficient, but are both human-readable and human-debuggable (especially with the interactive ParseView debugging tool). ANTLR can generate parsers, lexers, and tree-parsers in either C++, Java, or Sather. ANTLR is currently written in Java.
Archetypes is a framework for developing new content types in Plone. The power of Archetypes is first in automatically generating forms, second in providing a library of stock field types, form widgets, and field validators, third in easily integrating custom fields, widgets, and validators, and fourth in automating transformations of rich content.
The Better String Library is an abstraction of a string data type which is superior to the C library char buffer string type and C++'s std::string. Among the features achieved are substantial mitigation of buffer overflow/overrun problems and other failures that result from erroneous usage of the common C string library functions, significantly simplified string manipulation, high performance interoperability with other libraries that expect '\0' terminated buffers, high performance common string operations, and functional equivalency with other more modern languages.
CL-INTERPOL is a library for Common Lisp which modifies the reader so that you can have interpolation within strings, similar to Perl or Unix Shell scripts. It also provides various ways to insert arbitrary characters into literal strings even if your editor/IDE doesn't support them.
CL-PPCRE is a portable regular expression library for Common Lisp. It is compatible with Perl, and it's fast, portable (strictly ANSI-compliant), and thread-safe. It comes with convenient features like a SPLIT function, a couple of DO-like loop constructs, and a regex-based APROPOS feature similar to the one found in Emacs. In addition to specifying regular expressions as strings like in Perl, you can also use S-expressions which are more Lisp-y.
