AdaCGI is an Ada95 interface to the "Common Gateway Interface" (CGI). AdaCGI makes it easier to create Ada95 programs that can be invoked by World Wide Web (WWW) HTTP servers using the standard CGI interface. Using it, you can create Web applications using Ada95 to perform queries or other processing by request from a WWW user.
ADODB is a set of advanced PHP database abstraction classes. It supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, Interbase/Firebird, Informix, Sybase SQL Anywhere, Oracle, MS SQL 7 and 2000, SAP DB, Sybase, DB2, FrontBase, Foxpro, Access, Netezza, LDAP, ODBTP, ADO, and generic ODBC. A metatype system is built in, making it possible to figure out that types such as CHAR, TEXT, and STRING are equivalent in different databases. It also features portable database creation, database-backed session support (with encryption), SQL performance monitoring, and database health checks.
Argtable is an ANSI C library for parsing GNU style command line arguments, as in "foo -abc -o myfile --help --count=7". It enables a program's command line syntax to be defined in the source code as an array of argtable structs. The command line is then parsed according to that specification, and the resulting values are returned in those same structs where they are accessible to the main program. The default parsing, validation, and error reporting routines may be replaced by user-defined callbacks if desired, and new argtable data types may be created to parse user-defined argument types. The parsing itself is done using GNU getopt and so is 100% GNU compatible.
as-gps contains a basic support library for accessing the inexpensive ($20) Aisin-Seiki GPS Module previously available at mavin.com. The package also includes several simple console utilities for dumping satellite status, location, and time and for synchronizing the system clock.
GNU Aspell is a spell checker designed to eventually replace Ispell. It can either be used as a library or as an independent spell checker. Its main feature is that it does a superior job of suggesting possible replacements for a misspelled word than just about any other spell checker out there for the English language. Unlike Ispell, Aspell can also easily check documents in UTF-8 without having to use a special dictionary. Aspell will also do its best to respect the current locale setting. Other advantages over Ispell include support for using multiple dictionaries at once and intelligently handling personal dictionaries when more than one Aspell process is open at once.
AutoOpts is an integrated part of AutoGen. Based on a very simple option description file, it will process configuration files, environment variables, command line options, text strings passed by client programs, and will make the results easily accessible to the client program. It will also produce a man page and the info-doc invoking section automatically.
