A practical lambda-calculator is a normal-order evaluator for the untyped lambda-calculus, extended with convenient commands and shortcuts to make programming in it more productive. Shortcuts are distinguished constants that represent terms. Commands define new shortcuts, activate tracing of all reductions, compare terms modulo alpha-conversion, print all defined shortcuts and evaluation flags, etc. Terms to evaluate and commands are entered at a read-eval-print-loop (REPL) "prompt" or "included" from a file by a special command. A Haskell branch is an embedding of the lambda calculator (as a domain-specific language) into Haskell. The calculator can be used interactively within Hugs or GHCi.
AnyDBM is a Haskell module that provides a generic infrastructure for supporting storage of hash-like items with String-to-String mappings. It can be used for in-memory or on-disk storage. Two simple backend drivers are included with this package: one that is RAM-only, and one that is persistent and disk-backed. The hdbc-anydbm package provides another driver which lets you use simple tables in any SQL database to provide a DBM-like interface. MissingPy also provides a Python driver which lets you use any Python anydbm driver under Haskell AnyDBM.
Asynchronous DNS Resolver for Haskell is a library that provides an asynchronous DNS resolver on top of GNU ADNS. Not all options are supported, but A, MX, and PTR lookups work nicely. There is also support for retrieving generic RR types, CNAMEs, and for NSEC zone walking. The library can be expected to work with fine ADNS 1.4 or later. It might also work with version ADNS 1.3, but that hasn’t been tested.
Bluetile is a tiling window manager designed to integrate with the GNOME desktop environment. It provides both a traditional, stacking layout mode as well as tiling layouts where windows are arranged to use the entire screen without overlapping. Bluetile tries to make the tiling paradigm easily accessible to users coming from traditional window managers by drawing on known conventions and providing both mouse and keyboard access for all features.
C->Haskell is an interface generator that simplifies the development of Haskell bindings to C libraries. The tool processes existing C header files that determine data layout and function signatures on the C side in conjunction with Haskell modules that specify Haskell-side type signatures and marshaling details. Hooks embedded in the Haskell code signal access to C structures and functions; they are expanded by the interfacing tool in dependence on information from the corresponding C header file.
The ConfigFile module for Haskell works with configuration files in a standard format that is easy for the user to edit, easy for the programmer to work with, and yet remains powerful and flexible. It is inspired by, and is compatible with, Python's ConfigParser module. It uses files that resemble Windows .INI-style files, but with numerous improvements. ConfigFile provides simple calls to both read and write config files. It's possible to make a config file parsable by this module, the Unix shell, and make.
CMI is an optimizing frontend for gcc which allows gcc to inline across module boundaries without requiring you to put inline functions in header files or even mark inline functions for inlining. It makes your code go faster, makes your code smaller, makes your embedded software use less stack space, is a preprocessor for gcc, supports most gcc extensions, and is able to deal with such notoriously tricky code as the glibc header files. It works by merging multiple C files into one file, topologically sorting the definitions so that definitions come before uses, and marks functions as inline. It controls code bloat by deleting dead code and inlining up until a user-specified budget is reached. You can use user-specified heuristics to select which functions to inline (it includes a tool which uses gprof output to choose inlinings to illustrate this).
Debian From Scratch is really two related components in one. First, it's a live bootable CD image that is designed to provide a full-featured kernel and rescue environment. It includes filesystem tools, editors, C compilers, Python, Perl, and everything you need to manually install Debian on a new machine. On ix86 machines, Grub is used to boot directly from the CD. There is also a program that is used to create the DFS CD images. It is highly configurable and can be used to create other custom bootable CD or DVD images. You can include whatever kernel or packages you want.
DisTract is a distributed bug tracker. DisTract allows you to manage bugs in a distributed and potentially offline manner through your Web browser on your local machine. The distribution is achieved by making use of a distributed software control system, Monotone. Thus Monotone is used to move files across the network, perform merging operations, and track the development of every bug.
