The Libxmp Core Mod Player, or Coremod for short, is a small, lightweight subset of Libxmp with full API compatibility released under a permissive license. Coremod supports the four main module formats (MOD, XM, S3M, and IT), and is intended for use in games and other applications where extensive format support or file decompression are not required.
The Version numbers read/write command line tool finds and updates version number tokens in source code or packaging files. It takes filename context and syntax into account for reading and writing to files. It provides an easy and readable argument format, and can increase patch versions or bump build numbers. It's a minor simplification for manual package building.
OpenXL is a multiple purpose C open engine. It is a proceduralization library. It can be seen as the artist, the designer, or even the programmer of your project. It is designed so that it has some function power that could turn into any task (performing a texture, a pixel art image, a mesh, a model, a level, a song, etc.). The idea is to play the part of the missing components on your team.
codemiscs is a collection of exciting, creative, amusing, and innovative commands. It is intended to be fun and useful. It includes a command wrapper (cmd), project generator (mkproject), human language translator (tw), feed reader (rf), images wizard (imgs), colorizer (colorize), slowed down echoer (typewriter), and shell show (show).
tsx-tools provides headers and utilities for development with TSX (HLE/RTM) hardware transactional memory development on recent Intel CPUs. It includes compat headers that provide C inline functions support for RTM and HLE in various formats for older gcc compatible compilers (before gcc 4.8). These headers are useful to enable lock elision in a lock library or existing program. It also has various TSX related utilities, including a tool that detects the presence of TSX, a TSX aware assert, and various debugging utilities.
pmu tools is a collection of tools for profile collection and performance analysis on Intel CPUs on top of Linux perf. It has a wrapper to "perf" that provides a full core event list for common Intel CPUs. This allows you to use all the Intel events, not just the builtin events of perf. Support for Intel "offcore" events on older systems that do not have support for this in the Intel. Offcore events allow you to profile the location of a memory access outside the CPU's caches. It implements a workaround for some issues with offcore events on Sandy Bridge EP (Intel Xeon E5 first generation). This is automatically enabled for the respective events, and also available as a standalone program. Some utility programs to access pci space or msrs on the command line. A utility program to program the PMU directly from user space (pmumon.py) for counting. This is mainly useful for testing and experimental purposes. A library for self profiling with Linux since Linux 3.3 (for self-profiling on older kernels, you can use simple-pmu. An example program for address profiling on Nehalem and later Intel CPUs (addr). A program to print the currently running events (event-rmap).
ftracer is a simple user space implementation of a Linux kernel style function tracer. It allows you to trace every call in instrumented user applications. It is useful for debugging and performance analysis due to its fine grained time stamp. This allows you to do control flow oriented debugging without any special instrumentation. So if the program does something unexpected, it's easily possible to look at the function calls before that, and use that to deduce the cause of the problem. ftracer relies on gcc generating a call on top of every function call. The tracing slows every function call down (about 3x). The tracing is per thread and does not create a global bottleneck. It supports a dump function in C, directly callable by the program or on exit, and a gdb function to dump from gdb.
