TinyCOBOL is an effort to bring a free COBOL compiler to Linux. It generates GNU assembler for the i386 Linux platform. A executable binary is then created using the GNU assembler and linker. The project is approaching the first beta release with many statements already implemented.
Netbiff is an advanced version of the traditional biff (a mail-checking program). Features include BSD mailbox and IMAP4 support, a backend plug-in system (for other protocols), arbitrary numbers of backends, pluggable interfaces (GTK and text-based), and arbitrary actions on biff.
The HP OfficeJet Linux driver provides printing, scanning, and photo-card access support for most Hewlett-Packard multi-function peripherals connected to a parallel port, USB port, or LAN via selected HP JetDirect print servers. Additional applications are provided to view the contents of the front-panel LCD and to access other control and status features of the device.
MBSE BBS is a full Fidonet-capable ANSI BBS package including a mailer (ifcico clone), tosser, ticfile processor, filefind, and other utilities. It supports fully configurable ANSI menus, multiple languages, IEMSI, standard file transfer protocols, and native Linux doors. The mailer supports the FTS-0001, YooHoo/2U2, EMSI protocols over modem, and the TCP/IP Binkp and IFC protocols, Zedzap, Zmodem, Telink, and Hydra file transfer protocols. Full FTN mail support, including automatic routing for hub and host systems, is included. A Fidonet/Internet gateway is also built-in. The internal mail format is JAM (c) messagebase, and there is full tic file support, including extended tic files.
TAP provides packet reception and transmission for user-space programs. It can be viewed as a simple Ethernet device, which instead of receiving packets from a physical medium, receives them from a user-space program and instead of sending packets via physical media, writes them to the user-space program.
spim is a self-contained software simulator for running R2000/R3000 assembly language programs. It reads and can immediately execute files containing assembly language code. spim also provides a debugger and simple set of operating system services. spim provides both a simple, textual interface and a fancier, graphical interface. The package includes complete source code and documentation.
PLOTICUS is a command line utility for creating bar, line, pie, boxplot, scatterplot, sweep, heatmap, vector, timeline, Venn diagrams, and other types of charts and plots. ploticus is good for automated or just-in-time graph generation. It handles date, time, and categorical data nicely, and has some basic statistical capabilities. It can output to GIF, PNG, SVG, SWF, JPEG, PostScript, EPS, and X11. You can use convenient preset options or create complex scripts with rich and detailed color and style operations.
Zebedee is a simple program to establish an encrypted, compressed tunnel for TCP/IP or UDP data transfer between two systems. This allows traffic such as telnet, FTP, and X to be protected from snooping as well as potentially gaining performance over low-bandwidth networks from compression.
