GNU Lightning is a library that generates assembly language code at run time. It is very fast, making it ideal for Just-In-Time compilers, and it abstracts over the target CPU, as it exposes to the clients a standardized RISC instruction set (inspired by the MIPS and SPARC chips).
Savane is a Web-based Free Software hosting system, originally based on SourceForge 2.0. It currently includes issue tracking, project and member management, mailing lists, and individual account maintenance. The issue tracking handles bugs, tasks, and support. The issue tracker's fields ware configurable in many ways: mandatory of not, shown to users according to their role in a group, and with transition management.
IPTables-tutorial is a tutorial which explains how to install and set up iptables and netfilters on Linux. It takes you through a usable example file step by step, and helps you understand its basic functionality. The tutorial currently contains 6 different example scripts that may be used freely under GPL licensing terms.
arch is a modern replacement for CVS, specifically designed for the distributed development needs of open source projects. It has uniquely good support for development on branches (especially good merging tools), distributed repositories (every developer can have branches in their own repository), changeset-oriented project management (arch commits changes to multiple files at once), and, of course, file and directory renaming.
Linux NTFS provides Linux kernel drivers, a multiplatform NTFS library, and tools to create, resize, clone, rescue, query, label and fix NTFS volumes, and to undelete, resize, list, and query files for the filesystem used by Windows XP, 2003, 2000, NT4, and Vista. It also provides support for the Logical Disk Manager (LDM) that controls Windows' Dynamic Disks and is used to create software mirrors, stripes, and RAID.
ttmap passively analyzes values of TCP Timestamps in captured IP packets. After collecting enough data, it computes characteristic remote machine parameters. These values let it guess remote operating systems and identify unique machines behind a single IP address. For example, it can analyze remote IP load-balanced clusters.
swpartc is a simple but reliable utility for copying the data contents of one file or partition into another one and vice versa without losing a bit. The partitions must have the same size. It uses a crash recovery technique (a small back-up file), which means that even if the process is killed or the computer crashes, the user can safely resume the swapping operation later.
This package can be used to implement aspect oriented programming (AOP) by executing the code of classes that enable orthogonal aspects at run- time. The intention is to provide a means to implement orthogonal aspects in separate classes that may be an interesting add to the application, like logging, caching, transaction control, etc., without affecting the main business logic. The package provides base classes for implementing defining point cuts where the code of an advice class is called to implement actions of the orthogonal aspects that an application may need to enable.
Sorcerynet IRC Services is a program that provides an IRC network with nickname and channel registration and protection. The services supplied are NickServ, ChanServ, MemoServ (for short text messages), GameServ (a dice-rolling service), InfoServ (broadcast messages) and OperServ, which has clone detection, global autokill, and many other features.
