The Heirloom Toolchest is a collection of standard Unix utilities. It was derived from original Unix material released as open source by Caldera and Sun, and contains multiple versions of each utility corresponding to SVID3/SVR4, SVID4/SVR4.2MP, POSIX.2-1992/SUSV2, POSIX.1-2001/SUSV3, and 4BSD (SVR4 /usr/ucb). It processes lines of arbitrary length and in many cases binary input data, supports characters in UTF-8 and many East Asian encodings, and contains more than 100 individual utilities including bc, cpio, diff, ed, file, find, grep, man, nawk, oawk, pax, ps, sed, sort, spell, and tar. Extensive documentation is included.
I18N is a class that gets translation texts from flat files or from an SQL database. The system supports variables in translated strings and has a conversion facility to move data from one container to another. An included tool checks programs against sets of translated strings to detect references without strings or unused strings. Each call checks that referenced variables exist.
I18NEdit manages internationalized properties for Java programs and features a PHP adapter class for them. All property bundles are shown in a tree, and each property is editable directly in all available localisations. I18NEdit keeps track of changes in a source locale and presents the translator only what has been altered since his last translation session. Distributed working groups are supported by merging features.
IP::Country is a tool for fast lookup of country codes from IP addresses. Finding out the country of a client using only the IP address can be difficult. Looking up the domain name associated with that address can provide some help, but many IP address are not reverse mapped to any useful domain, and the most common domain (.com) offers no help when looking for country. This module comes bundled with a database of countries where various IP addresses have been assigned. Although the country of assignment will probably be the country associated with a large ISP rather than the client herself, this is probably good enough for most log analysis applications, and under test has proved to be as accurate as reverse-DNS and WHOIS lookup.
Intlize allows the developer to use catgets without its normally bulky syntax and without having to mind the details of correct indices. Catgets is the built-in internationalization suite of C compilers. Alternatively, Intlize can produce a compact file format optimized for fast access. Intermediate files are in gettext po format, so there are many comfortable tools available to do the translations. Runtime files are provided for C and C++ and for both catgets and intlize native support.
JInto is a plugin for Eclipse that lets the developer easily edit and maintain resource bundles (files that hold the localized strings for an application). It features parallel editing of all language versions (side by side), warnings when no text has been provided for a specific key, or when the text for one key is identical for different languages, and a search wizard to locate unused strings (strings that are referenced, but not actually defined in the resource bundle). It has been tested under Windows and Linux.
JLokalize is an editor for supporting the internationalization (i18n) of Java applications. Java programms usually store translatable text in properties files. JLokalize is an editor which makes organizing these files simple. Its code is based on Attesoro. It is small, portable, easy-to-use, and specialized for its purpose. It is fully compatible with standard ResourceBundle based implementations.
