QuesoGLC is a free implementation of the OpenGL Character Renderer. The OpenGL Character Renderer (GLC) is a state machine that provides OpenGL programs with character rendering services including scale and rotate text and draw text using lines, filled triangles, or bitmaps. QuesoGLC is based on the FreeType library, provides Unicode support, and is designed to be easily ported to any platform that supports both FreeType and the OpenGL API.
Univert is a Universal Unicode Converter, at least as universal as the Unicode implementation in Tcl 8.1 or later can manage on your computer. Univert will convert interchangably between the following formats: native Tcl unicode, hex bytes or words separated by spaces, decimal bytes or words separated by spaces, HTML entities, UTF-8/URL encoding, quoted printable with whatever the current encoding is, and C string with whatever the current encoding is.
libtholoura is a text-image distortion library, which is useful for sites that want to ensure that a human (and not a bot) is viewing pages. It is optimized to produce images of strings distorted in a way that makes it impossible for an OCR to read, but humans can. The library takes a string (preferably ASCII) string and is able to dynamically produce PNG indexed images. The distortion filters are external plugins.
rxvt-unicode is a clone of the well known terminal emulator rxvt, modified to store text in Unicode and to use locale-correct input and output. It also supports mixing multiple fonts at the same time, including Xft fonts, real transparency, and an optional embedded Perl interpreter that allows you to extend your terminal easily.
PalmFontConv is a collection of command-line utilities to manipulate Palm fonts in both v1 and v2 formats. Currently, there is a converter that converts between afnx, nfnt (low, high, or both densities), NFNT, and text editable formats, and another converter that converts Type 1/TrueType/BDF/PCF and other formats supported by FreeType2 into the text editable format, code for generating Plucker and PalmBible+ compatible anti-aliased fonts. There are also a bunch of GUI shells for generating font packages for Plucker, PalmBible+, Fonts4OS5, and FontSubst.
