flex.rb is a regexp matching and scanning library for the Ruby language. It is more than 3 times faster than Ruby regexps, and supports matching text arriving in multiple parts (via async, non-blocking I/O). flex.rb embeds the GNU Flex 2.5.4 (fast lexical analyzer generator) as an engine, and all of Flex's functionality is accessible from Ruby scripts.
QDPF was written to solve the problem of exposing internal services to the Internet. It runs on machines which bridge two networks and forwards TCP/IP packets from one to the other. Its main use is to expose corporate or Intranet services to the Internet, by running it on an intervening machine. TCP sessions can also be followed in detail using the 'trace' option. QDPF is a Java console application.
quote.rb is a Ruby script which defines more than 70 quoters (basic string manipulation routines). Most quoters just add or remove backslashes at the appropriate place; others include hexdumps, checksums, simple encryptions, etc. quote.rb's main goal is to provide all quoters necessary for simple and advanced web programming (CGI and server-side scripting) in one place.
