cspot is a semantic annotator designed only for the C programming language. It is quite similar to cscope, but some more functionality. It can be used to find the declarations, definitions, and usages of functions, variables, macros, typedefs, and structs. It can also find visible identifiers at some position in the source, functions called by a function, global variables used by a function, usages of local variable declarations, unused global variables, unused function definitions, and more. Because it uses sparse, cspot knows more about semantics than cscope.
Xtla is the Emacs front-end to the GNU Arch revision control system. It provides user-friendly wrappers for tla native commands and some higher level features such as the bookmark manager. The main features are a PCL-CVS-like interface for tla inventory and tla changes, an archive browser, good integration in Emacs, a bookmark manager, integration with ediff, Emacs's graphical diff tool, an interface to view missing patches from all your partners with a single command, and an Emacs mode for arch-related files (log files, =tagging- method).
Plash is a sandbox for running GNU/Linux programs with minimum privileges. It is suitable for running both command line and GUI programs. It can dynamically grant Gtk-based GUI applications access rights to individual files that you want to open or edit. This happens transparently through the Open/Save file chooser dialog box, by replacing GtkFileChooserDialog. Plash virtualizes the file namespace and provides per-process/per-sandbox namespaces. It can grant processes read-only or read-write access to specific files and directories, mapped at any point in the filesystem namespace. It does not require modifications to the Linux kernel.
The Autotoolset package complements the GNU build system by providing automatic generation of legal notices, automatic generation of GNITS-standard directory trees, a rudimentary portability framework for C++ programs, support for writing portable software that uses both Fortran and C++, additional support for writing software documentation in Texinfo and LaTeX, and a manual introducing both Autotools and the GNU build system in a unified task-oriented manner.
SLIME is an integrated development environment for Common LISP which does everything you would expect from an IDE: code evaluation, compilation, macro expansion, and auto-completion. It also finds definitions of functions, and marks LISP forms which the compiler finds to be erroneous. It provides easy access to implementation-specific online documentation as well as the ability to look up symbols in the ANSI Common Lisp HyperSpec. Further, it includes an interactive debugger and object inspector.
