Pcompress is a utility to do compression/decompression and deduplication in parallel by splitting input data into chunks. It has a modular structure and includes support for multiple algorithms like LZMA, Bzip2, PPMD, LZ4, etc., with KECCAK/BLAKE2/SHA-256/512 chunk checksums. SSE optimizations for the bundled LZMA are included. It also implements chunk-level Content-Aware Deduplication and Delta Compression features based on a Rabin Fingerprinting scheme. It has low metadata overhead and overlaps I/O and compression to achieve maximum parallelism. It has AES encryption capability and uses Scrypt from Tarsnap to generate per-session unique keys from passwords. It can work in pipe mode, reading from stdin and writing to stdout. It also provides some adaptive compression modes in which a suitable algorithm is chosen per chunk based on heuristics.
The Common Pipeline Library provides a highly robust set of functions for manipulating signals and images. It is primarily intended for the building of VLT instrument pipelines, but is also useful for generic data handling. It includes a number of useful low-level data types, medium-level data access methods, standard implementations of commonly-used signal processing and data reduction tasks, and dynamic loading of "recipes" for data processing.
WCSLIB is a C library, supplied with a full set of Fortran wrappers, which implements the "World Coordinate System" (WCS) standard in FITS (Flexible Image Transport System). It also includes a PGPLOT-based routine, PGSBOX, for drawing general curvilinear coordinate graticules, and a number of utility programs. The FITS "World Coordinate System" (WCS) convention defines keywords and usage which provide descriptions of astronomical coordinate systems in a FITS image header.
libquickmail is a library intended to give C/C++ developers a quick and easy way to send email from their applications. It supports multiple To/Cc/Bcc recipients and multiple MIME attachments without size limitation. It uses libcurl for SMTP communication, but a light version is also included without the libcurl dependancy. The library can also be used to just create a multipart MIME message body. It also comes with a command line application for sending mail (with optional attachments).
QSMM, the "QSMM State Machine Model", is a framework for development of non-deterministic intelligent state models and systems with spur-driven behavior. It includes low-level functions for generating optimal actions by the system and high-level functions for building multinode models. In a multinode model, nodes represent components of a system you develop which choose optimal actions using the framework and can correspond to entities external to the system and which behavior is to be learnt. A node can choose optimal actions based on a current node state which is either set manually by your program or is identified automatically by the framework. Probability profiles for a state transition matrix and an action emission matrix of the node can be specified using an assembler program with a user-defined instruction set.
SimGrid is a toolkit which provides core functionalities for the simulation of distributed applications in heterogeneous distributed environments. The specific goal of the project is to facilitate research in the area of parallel and distributed large scale systems such as Grids, P2P systems, and clouds. Its use cases encompass heuristic evaluation, application prototyping, or even real application development and tuning.
