PdfParser is a standalone PHP library that provides various tools for extracting data from PDF files. It loads and parses objects and headers, extracts meta data, and extracts text from ordered pages. It supports compressed PDF, MAC OS Roman charset encoding, hex and octal encoding in text sections, and is compliant with PSR-0 (autoloader) and PSR-1 (code styling). Currently, secured documents are not supported.
The eXtensible Binary Universal Protocol (XBUP) project is an attempt to design a general binary communication protocol and file format. It is based on the unlimited unary-binary encoding and strongly typed block tree structure. It will provide a catalog service and processing infrastructure.
Dandelion is a 3D graph rendering application which can be controlled across a network. Its main purpose is to allow clear network graphs to be rendered in a window, which can be controlled by a separate application or the user. The Dandelion visualization is actually controlled by issuing simple commands to it across the network (although this could all be happening on a single machine). The Dandelion source includes a set of very simple libraries which can be incorporated into other applications and which can be used to send these commands. Libraries are included for C, C#, Java, and Python. The project was developed at Liverpool John Moores University within the PROTECT Centre.
