The NetCDF package consists of a few tools to operate on NetCDF and, by utilizing the compatibility API, HDF4 files. The tools are intended to be used from shell scripts. They include a couple of simple shell wrappers over the respective NetCDF functions (ncattget and ncattput) and a more sophisticated ncget tool. The ncget tool delivers (for NetCDF) or complements (for HDF4) the functionality of the "hdp dumpsds" command. It allows a selected part of a NetCDF variable or an HDF4 scientific data set (SDS) to be extracted in either an ASCII or binary form, applying the transformation specified by the scale_factor and add_offset attributes. This tool allows one to feed the data of NetCDF variables (or HDF4 SDS) to other tools designed to operate on either ASCII (text) or raw (binary) data.
Arachne is program that implements Avidan and Shamir's seam carving technique for content-aware image resizing. It allows realtime, fluid image resizing using this fascinating technique. Seam carving works by removing the "boring bits" from an image, so it can change the aspect ratio of many images without changing the shape of the objects inside.
GetHT downloads PDF files from Hinduism Today, an "award winning, Macintosh-generated, full color quarterly news magazine articulating Indian spirituality for 135,000 readers around the world." It is the only native GNU/Linux client available, has good proxy support, and allows you to only download the parts of the magazine that interest you.
ttmap passively analyzes values of TCP Timestamps in captured IP packets. After collecting enough data, it computes characteristic remote machine parameters. These values let it guess remote operating systems and identify unique machines behind a single IP address. For example, it can analyze remote IP load-balanced clusters.
swpartc is a simple but reliable utility for copying the data contents of one file or partition into another one and vice versa without losing a bit. The partitions must have the same size. It uses a crash recovery technique (a small back-up file), which means that even if the process is killed or the computer crashes, the user can safely resume the swapping operation later.
Sorcerynet IRC Services is a program that provides an IRC network with nickname and channel registration and protection. The services supplied are NickServ, ChanServ, MemoServ (for short text messages), GameServ (a dice-rolling service), InfoServ (broadcast messages) and OperServ, which has clone detection, global autokill, and many other features.
Pakt is an XML abstraction layer for GObjects. It maintains a server-side tree of glib-like (Gtk, Gnome, etc) objects and provides access methods to manipulate the same (and thereby the running 'application'). Its primary use is to publish GStreamer pipelines, enabling connected clients to monitor and change the element's parameters and the pipeline's structure.
Zoem is a general-purpose macro/programming language that submits text to a two-stage transformation process. Macro expansion and interpretation is followed by application of customizable character filtering rules. Zoem supports inside-out evaluation, comprehensive IO, control operators, iteration, dictionary stacks, multidimensional data storage, arithmetic expressions, regular expressions, system commands, and more.
