SkFind is a set of portable and scriptable tools that help developers build software for both publishers and end users such as search engines. It provides a simple data layout that is used to build more complex layouts. The low-level, extensible tools allow read-only access to files, Oracle databases, or other data sources. There are also high-level tools to handle word lookups, case and/or accent simplifications, full-text searches with boolean operators and exact expressions, document highlighting, file-system compression, and more.
cstor is a cross-reference compiler and reverse engineering tool. It compiles one text file (database) from multiple source modules (currently reads C, C++, and Perl). The tool combines reverse engineering capabilities, code validation, and an HTML documentation generator. The database can then be reused from own scripts and programs, e.g. to implement cross-compilers, validate coding conventions, build statistics etc. The builtin documentation generators are actually an application of the database.
iBookshelf is an application for cataloging your book collection and designing bookshelves based on this data. It supports ISBN entry using a CueCat, a standard barcode scanner, or manual entry. Book data is automatically fetched from Amazon Web services. Manual book entry is possible for non-catalogued books. Bookshelf design is done graphically with the Cairo drawing library, and is based on the most efficient book order.
