WvDial (pronounced "Weave Dial") is an easier way to connect to the internet. It completely avoids the need for chat scripts, edits pap-secrets and chap-secrets for you, detects your modem automatically, and chooses a valid init string. It can even read and respond to command prompts at almost any ISP.
Fimex is a the File Interpolation, Manipulation, and EXtraction library for gridded geospatial data. It converts between different, extensible data formats (currently netcdf, NcML, grib1/2, metgm, wdb, and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible to subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files. For simple usage, Fimex also comes with the command line program fimex.
cclib is a Python library for parsing and interpreting the results of computational chemistry packages. It currently parses output files from ADF, GAMESS (US), GAMESS-UK, Gaussian, Jaguar, and PC GAMESS. Among other data, cclib extracts coordinates, atomic orbital information, molecular orbital information, information on vibrational modes, and the results of a TD-DFT calculation. cclib also provides some calculation methods for interpreting some electronic properties of molecules using analyses such as Mulliken population analysis, overlap population analysis, and calculation of Mayer's bond orders.
