Ptplot is a set of Java classes that can be used as an applet or an application for graphing datasets. It reads PlotML, binary, or ASCII data, is autoranging, and automatically or manually labels axes and tick marks. It can plot live, animated plots and provides zooming. It also includes Bourne shell scripts and DOS .bat files that can be used as a replacement for xgraph, the X11 graphing tool.
The NSCL Data Acquisition system is a general purpose nuclear physics data acquisition system for small to medium scale nuclear physics experiments. It can be combined with NSCL SpecTcl to form a powerful online/offline data handling system. It is in use at several university labs and, of course, the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University.
EZFB is a polymorphic, object oriented Linux frame buffer API written in C, designed to adapt at run time to control any properly configured Linux frame buffer video system. It offers independent, simultaneous control of multiple video cards within a single system, exceptional control of colors, the ability to display all or portions of bitmap files anywhere on the screen, automatic color depth conversion, the ability to capture to bitmap files, an 8x8 bitmapped font, routines to draw points, lines, outlined and filled rectangles, signal trapping for automatic screen clean-up at process termination, and much more. The demonstration applications include a bitmap viewer, screen capture utility, screen saver, and a touch screen calibration utility and an application for generating, viewing, transforming, and saving files according to The International Laser Display Association's ILDA file format.
The Robot Auto Racing Simulator (RARS) consists of a simulation of the physics of cars racing on a track, a graphic display of the race, and a separate control program (robot "driver") for each car. The goal of the game is to implement such a control program in order to compete against other programmers. An official formula one season is held every year.
The Simple Sockets Library makes sockets easy to use and comes as public domain source code. It resembles C's file I/O, uses whatever port is available, has named servers and port reuse, streaming/blocking sockets used, polling support, blocking/selection support via numerous functions, timeout control and firewall support.
This is a stable version of the Interoperable Message Passing Interface (IMPI) Server. It fully conforms to the January 2000 IMPI Draft Standard. IMPI is used to join multiple MPI implementations into a single parallel job. This package is independent of any specific MPI or IMPI implementation, and is intended for end users as well as IMPI implementors.
rt is an n-dimensional raytracer. It supports any positive number of spatial dimensions, color and grayscale, cylinders with an arbitrary number of round dimensions (spheres and cubes are special cases of cylinders), quadratic surfaces, convex hulls, regular polytopes, unions, intersections, cuts, extrusions, reflection, refraction, functional texture maps, portals into other traces, ambient light, multiple light sources, directional light sources, gamma correction, fish-eye effect, and output as PNG or PPM. It has been tested under DOS, Solaris, Digital Unix, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Linux, Ultrix, System V, and BeOS.
