Vocabularium creates Spanish-English podcasts to help with vocabulary learning. A vocabulary topic and the subtopics which you want to include in the podcast can be selected. The program outputs a WAV file (or MP3 if Lame is installed) that reads a list of Spanish words and phrases with English translations based on that topic. Several vocabulary topics are built into the program. Under Windows, Vocabularium is designed to work with any SAPI 5 voice. Under Linux and Mac OS, it currently works with Cepstral voices, including the free demonstration versions.
LayerD is an effort to develop an extensible framework for programming languages. It features unlimited compile time programmability, modular design, pluggable code generation, unified high level semantics, multiple source languages, integration of RAD tools with compilers and languages, development of domain specific languages, development of abstract software, extensive features for code generation and meta-programming. Its implementation is able to implement software for .NET and Java bytecode using one high level language that is extensible by programming compile time functionality. There is a Java front-end that allows programming for this new framework using a well known language.
JLearnIt is a thematic dictionary that allows you to learn vocabulary with a questionnaire. You can also translate text (word by word), search for incomplete words, sort the languages in alphabetical order, rearrange the order of the languages, save your score, save as HTML, and show only the languages you're interested in. Each word is rated according to frequency of use. You can choose to see only the words of a certain range of frequencies or to be asked for words of that level. You can also add and delete your vocabulary and categories, and cut/copy/paste between a spreadsheet program and JLearnIt. You can change the language and the skin of JLearnIt. You can get more information about the word on the Internet and save your configuration. JLearnIt won't ask you the same word if you know the word. It won't ask you for the word that starts with the same letters as the translation. You can edit words and set properties for this word.
Open Object Rexx is an object-oriented scripting language. It is designed for "non-programmer" type users, so it is easy to learn and easy to use, and provides an excellent vehicle to enter the world of object-oriented programming without much effort. It extends the procedural way of programming with object-oriented features that allow you to gradually change your programming style as you learn more about objects.
PHP-to-Scala Migration Helper is a tool that enables individuals and organizations with a significant PHP codebase to migrate to a Java-centric environment completely free of any PHP source code, PHP tools, PHP servers, and PHP developers. PHP-to-Scala Migration Helper is technically a PHP compiler, but it translates to readable, maintainable source code rather than machine code. Its goal is not to make PHP code run faster, but it is not an unwelcome side effect.
Voca is a vocabulary trainer for foreign languages. It allows you to create and manage your own word lists and share them online.
