cdrtools (formerly cdrecord) creates home-burned CDs/DVDs with a CDR/CDRW/DVD/BluRay recorder. It works as a burn engine for several applications. It supports CD/DVD/BD recorders from many different vendors; all SCSI-3/mmc- and ATAPI/mmc-compliant drives should also work. Supported features include IDE/ATAPI, parallel port, and SCSI drives; audio CDs, data CDs, and mixed CDs; full multi-session support; CD-RWs, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, BD-R/BD-RE; and TAO, DAO, RAW, and human-readable error messages. cdrtools includes remote SCSI support and can access local or remote CD/DVD/BD writers.
Star is a very fast, POSIX-compliant tar archiver, maintained for more than 30 years. It saves many files together into a single tape or disk archive, and can restore individual files from the archive. It includes command line interfaces for the "tar", "Sun-Tar", "cpio", "pax", and "gnutar" command-line syntax. It includes a FIFO for speed, a pattern matcher, multi-volume support, the ability to archive sparse files and ACLs, the ability to archive extended file flags, automatic archive format detection, automatic byte order recognition, automatic archive compression/decompression, remote archives, and special features that allow star to be used for full and incremental backups. It includes the only known platform independent "rmt" server program.
RIFE offers an alternative approach to web application development and design. It builds upon the Java platform, but offers all required tools and APIs to implement and perform all common Web site related tasks in a fast, intuitive, and consistent manner. RIFE is composed out of a large collection of modular parts, including a Web application engine, integrated Web continuations, a customizable multi-format template engine, support for template content transformation, and more.
JHighlight is an embeddable Java syntax highlighting library that supports Java, Groovy, C++, HTML, XHTML, XML, and LZX languages and outputs to XHTML. The library can be used in several ways: embedded into another tool (for instance a blog or forum), through the command-line to generate highlighted files locally, or as a servlet filter to highlight source files on your server on-the- fly. It also supports RIFE templates tags and highlights them clearly so that you can easily identify the difference between your RIFE markup and the actual marked up source.
The Schily Source Package System (SPS) is a source-based packaging system that is developed for SchilliX (a OpenSolaris-based Unix distribution) but is highly portable and works on many operating systems. It "boots" from a single 10kb shell script and creates all needed binaries from scratch. In contrast to other similar systems, it is modular and reusable. It is based on the Schily Makefilesystem and smake.
SchilliX is an OpenSolaris-based live CD and distribution that is intended to help people discover OpenSolaris. When installed on a hard drive, it also allows developers to develop and compile code in a pure OpenSolaris environment. SchilliX tries to be as Sun Solaris compatible as possible and to be the optimum development platform for Solaris and OpenSolaris.
The Heirloom Documentation Tools provide troff, nroff, and related utilities to format manual pages and other documents for output on terminals and printers. They are portable and enhanced versions of the respective OpenSolaris utilities, which descend from ditroff and the historical Unix troff. troff provides advanced typographical features such as kerning, tracking, and hanging characters. It can access PostScript Type 1, OpenType, and TrueType fonts directly. Internationalized hyphenation, international paper sizes, and UTF-8 input are supported.
BeleniX is a distribution based on the version of OpenSolaris that runs on x86 machines. It comes as a live CD and includes all of the OpenSolaris components (core kernel, libraries, and utilities) and also includes additional GNU/OSS software. BeleniX is a full fledged OS distribution that can be installed and used as a regular desktop system.
The Heirloom Development Tools provide yacc, lex, m4, make, and SCCS as portable derivatives of the utilities released by Sun as part of OpenSolaris. The OpenSolaris utilities were in turn derived from the original Unix versions, and are assumed be conforming implementations of the POSIX standard.
