OnPosix is a tiny library to abstract POSIX mechanisms to C++ developers. Most features offered by this library can be found either inside the Boost library or in a library compliant with the C++11 standard. Unfortunately, however, for some embedded Linux devices, these libraries cannot represent viable solutions, due to the lack of memory space (for the Boost libraries) and the lack of a new C++ compiler (e.g., on Xilinx MicroBlaze). On these platforms, the OnPosix library represents a good and cheap solution to have object-oriented POSIX mechanisms. The library offers support for threads, mutual exclusion, sockets, logging, timing, etc.
cronbot is a wrapper script for cron jobs. Rather than running your job/script directly, you run it through cronbot, and it will allow a little more control to help keep things from getting out of hand. The default behavior is to only allow one instance of your job to run. This can be changed with the --duplicate option. You can also pass in a maximum time of execution for a job or add a random amount time to delay the start of your job. By default, jobs are run with a default "nice" value, which is usually 10.
Galois is a computer game of the "falling blocks" type, but with unique features. Unlike most other games of that type, it is not limited to blocks made of four two-dimensional, square bricks: you can choose among several different brick shapes, blocks composed of more or fewer bricks, and even between two- and three-dimensional games.
Fast FIX Parser (FFP) is a library for parsing Financial Information eXchange (FIX) messages. It takes input bytes as they arrive from, for example, a socket, and converts them into a representation of FIX messages which can be further analysed for semantic checks, converted into “business” structures, etc. It also provides a way to specify which tags are allowed for a particular message and verifies this specification at runtime.
PyDate is a very simple Python/Tk based tool to adjust the system date and time conveniently from an easy to use graphical interface. It is primarily intended to be used with minimal desktop environments like IceWm that don't provide such tools themselves. KDE or Gnome libraries are not required.
se is a screen-oriented version of the classic UNIX text editor ed. The editor implements many of the commands of ed, but instead of being line-oriented, se is screen-oriented. The command syntax is very familiar to users who already know ed. If you get stuck, there is a built-in help system that describes many of the available commands. Many configurable options can be loaded from a .serc file. se can be run interactively or in a script via the included scriptse utility. The editor is portable across many platforms, supporting major Linux and BSD distributions as well as other systems like GNU, Minix, Haiku, OpenSolaris, and Cygwin.
