dbvi is a UNIX terminal-based interface to the gdb debugger. It tightly integrates a vi session with the usual gdb command line and uses the arrow keys to provide an intuitive interface to common debugging commands. It is designed to be used in a restrictive single terminal environment, but in a windowed environment it has the same advantages over a graphical interface that vi has over a graphical text editor.
distributed.net is a loosely knit group of computer users from all of the world that is taking up challenges requiring lots of computing power (most notably the RC5, DES, and OGR cracking contests). It is simple to participate in the challenges by downloading and running their client software (which uses idle CPU time to complete its tasks).
dlh is a fast LaTeX-to-HTML translator written in C that can handle most of LaTeX. It features not invoking LaTeX for any purpose; with the exception of figure support it's completely independent of any other program. In particular, it generates all cross-references and table of contents in a single run Tables are supported and translated into HTML3 tables, and PostScript figures (\psfig command) are supported (requires GhostScript and pnmtogif to translate PS into GIF files).
dvd+rw-tools makes it possible to burn DVD images created by "dvdauthor" or "mkisofs" to DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, and DVD-RW disks, replacing "cdrecord-proDVD" in many cases. The package contains "growisofs" to burn DVD images or create a data DVD on the fly, "dvd+rw-format" to format a DVD+RW, "dvd+rw-mediainfo" to give details about DVD disks, and some programs to control the write speed and obtain information from DVD-RAM.
elemenope is an Enterprise Application Integration, Service Oriented Architecture, and general messaging framework. It provides the capability for massive decoupling of an enterprise's components through standardized interfaces for communications. It provides complete abstraction of both transmission protocol and functional components. A project may connect components via a particular protocol standard, and completely change the protocol technology deployed with a simple change to a configuration file, i.e. no code changes. It implements the following connector sets: JMS, SOAP, XML-RPC, direct call, and native IBM MQSeries. It allows an organization to easily create a large scale multi-platform application to conduct messaging or transaction processing. It simplifies architecture of large systems by standardizing functional components and message pathways.
fff and ffl are tools for searching for files and directories from the Unix shell with more integrated "shell-like" behaviour and simpler syntax than find(1), though find(1) is still used to perform the actual searches. In particular, there is no need to quote wildcards, and searches are case-insensitive. Matching results are shown one per line. fff displays full paths, and ffl relative paths. Detailed find(1) options can be appended to the fff/ffl command line if desired. These utilities are based entirely on shell aliases and functions, so no compliation is required.
fio is an I/O tool meant to be used both for benchmark and stress/hardware verification. It has support for 19 different types of I/O engines (sync, mmap, libaio, posixaio, SG v3, splice, null, network, syslet, guasi, solarisaio, and more), I/O priorities (for newer Linux kernels), rate I/O, forked or threaded jobs, and much more. It can work on block devices as well as files. fio accepts job descriptions in a simple-to-understand text format. Several example job files are included. fio displays all sorts of I/O performance information, including complete IO latencies and percentiles. Fio is in wide use in many places, for both benchmarking, QA, and verification purposes. It supports Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OS X, OpenSolaris, AIX, HP-UX, Android, and Windows.
