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.
JCards is a Java application designed to store and manage data in any format that the user defines. Instead of having multiple applications/spreadsheets/databases to manage passwords, tasks, shopping lists, etc., JCards allows the user to define a database that contains the fields they want. This is accomplished via an easy to use interface that requires no understanding of SQL or any other database jargon. JCards was initially developed for PDAs, but has now branched into another version that is suitable for the modern desktop environment and includes a number of extra features.
The Machine Emulator, or tme, provides a general-purpose framework for computer emulation. The goal is to create a large library of modules, each emulating a specific computer chip, bus, board, etc. These modules offer standard interfaces that allow you to connect them together to create a whole machine emulation with a minimum of effort. It is possible to emulate a Sun 2/120 and a 3/150, both with NetBSD, and a SparcStation 2 with NetBSD or SunOS 4.1.4 (aka Solaris 1.1.2).
LFT (Layer Four Traceroute) is a sort of "traceroute" that often works much faster than the commonly-used Van Jacobson method and goes through many configurations of packet-filter based firewalls. More importantly, LFT implements numerous other features, including TCP, UDP, or ICMP-based traces, AS number lookups through several reliable sources, loose source routing, netblock name lookups, and more. LFT also distinguishes between layer-4 protocols, which make its statistics slightly more realistic, and gives a savvy user the ability to trace protocol routes, not just layer-3 hops.
ca-ga is a toy artificial life simulation that uses genetic algorithms on large cellular automata. It uses simple but easily extended DNA that is 8k long by default, though you can take the size out to anything you have time to evolve. It sits under each cell of a 128x128 board and orders operations to transfer energy in the hopes of achieving a kill and breed. The simulation features a mutating fitness function, emergent sex, and a proof of concept real world fitness function. After enough generations, the cells or genes could achieve collectivism and organismhood, coordinating the values of the hotspots that determine board temperature in order to maintain a desired equilibrium. But maybe not. If you work in a fitness function, an optimizing problem solver results.
libcsv_parser++ is a C++ library for parsing text files to extract records and fields. The records can be delimited with any set of characters. It makes the following assumptions: the record terminator is only one character in length; the field terminator is only one character in length; and the fields are enclosed by single characters, if any. The parser can handle documents where fields are always enclosed, not enclosed at all, or optionally enclosed. When fields are strictly all enclosed, there is an assumption that any enclosure characters within the field are escaped by placing a backslash in front of the enclosure character. The software could be ported to Windows with very little effort.
BixData is a cluster management tool that includes monitoring and system administration features. It monitors services (HTTP, ping, POP3, SMTP), performance, and processes. It has a management console for VMWare and Xen that supports multiple virtual machine hosts and guests. It can create critical notifications and send email alerts for any system event (HTTP, ping, CPU, memory, SMART diagnostics, VM stats). A graphical desktop supports real-time dynamic graphs. The runtime agents and server components are lightweight and easy to set up and run.
