I, Librarian is a PDF manager or PDF organizer that allows individual researchers or a group of researchers to create an annotated collection of PDF articles. Users may build the virtual library collaboratively, thus sharing the workload of literature mining. It enables smart browsing and fast searching in reference data and PDF files, and includes an advanced tool for mining scientific literature from PubMed, PubMed Central, NASA ADS, arXiv, IEEE Xplore, and HighWire Press.

XmlPlus xsd2cpp is a tool that compiles an XML schema into C++ data bindings.

comedi2py feeds data from a data acquisition board into Python by using call-back functions. The goal was to make this as easy as possible, hiding all the complexity of the asynchronous acquisition in comedi2py and providing the Python program simply with an array of the sampled data at a given sampling rate. The program has been tested with the USB-DUX boards, but should also run with any other COMEDI supported data acquisition board.
