amber aims to be an easy-to-use granular synthesis tool for Linux to assist composers and electronic musicians in creating interesting and complex sounds. More information on the theory and application of granular synthesis techniques can be found at http://shoko.calarts.edu/~eric/gs.html.
The AMC Mail Client is a mail client striving to be a robust, fully gnome-compliant mail reader. However, the AMC Mail Client differs from other mail clients in that it attempts to utilize existing tools for mail retrieval, sending, and filtering, (fetchmail, sendmail/smtp, procmail). By not going through the process of reinventing the wheel, the AMC Mail Client starts out as a fully equipped client that inherits all of the features of these existing tools.
AMMP (another molecular mechanics program) is a full-featured molecular modeling package. Notable features include the use of the fast multipole method for calculations using all pairs of atoms, stiffly stable dynamics, embedding and other strategies for robust building of model structures from limited data.
Anacron is a periodic command scheduler. It executes commands at intervals specified in days. Unlike cron, it does not assume that the system is running continuously. It can therefore be used to control the execution of daily, weekly, and monthly jobs (or anything with a period of n days), on systems that don't run 24 hours a day. When installed and configured properly, Anacron will make sure that the commands are run at the specified intervals as closely as machine-uptime permits.
Angel is a simple yet useful tool to monitor the services on your network. Technically speaking, it's a Perl program that runs every 'n' minutes (usually fired from your cron) and calls different perl subprograms (referred to as "plugins" from now on) to do the actual testing. It will then generate an HTML table containing the status of your network.
ANGIF is a C library to generate GIF format output. It can generate animated GIFs or true-color (24-bit) GIFs (using both at the same time, however, does not display properly on common browsers). ANGIF is completely LZW-free. There is no code implementing the patented LZW algorithm. That also means there is no compression and the files will actually be larger than a raw file with the same image by about 13% to 16% more. Command line level test programs are included. This is a quick rough-cut beta version with documentation only in the source code (the source code actually is commented).
