WP2LaTeX is a program designed to translate WordPerfect documents into LaTeX 2.09 and LaTeX 2.0e. It is able to cope with Macintosh WordPerfect 1.x, 2.x, 3.x, and 4.x and PC WP 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x documents (WP 7.x and 8.x have same binary file format as 6.x, so no additional conversion module is necessary.)
Madagascar is a software package for multidimensional data analysis and reproducible computational experiments. Its mission is to provide a convenient and powerful environment and a convenient technology transfer tool for researchers working with digital image and data processing in geophysics and related fields. Technology developed using the Madagascar project management system is transferred in the form of recorded processing histories, which become "computational recipes" to be verified, exchanged, and modified by users of the system.
pdfrecycle creates a PDF file by composing pages from other PDF files. It can add PDF bookmarks and metadata, scale, rotate, and crop pages, and put multiple logical pages onto each physical sheet. pdfrecycle uses a simple text file format to define the layout and what pages to include. From this input file pdfrecycle creates a LaTeX file and then runs pdflatex to produced the PDF file.
eLyXer (pronounced elixir) is a LyX to HTML converter. While there are a ton of such projects all over the Web, eLyXer has a clear focus on flexibility and elegant output. LyX is a wonderful text editor that produces beautiful PDF files. Internally, it exports documents to LaTeX, and from there to PDF. Sadly there is not an equivalent “export to HTML” option. With eLyXer, you can convert your master’s thesis, learned article, fascinating novel, or love letter to an HTML page that you can then publish on the Web. It is a standalone tool that does not depend on LyX.
Mutabor is a program that allows you to perform and compose microtonal music using a normal MIDI keybord and normal MIDI equipment. Its powerful description language is intended to allow permanent retunings and complex tuning logic. One application is just tuning. Mutabor has been used for this purpose to make available all pitches that can be reached by stacking perfect thirds and perfect fifths. The stable version 3.0x is available in German only and runs under Windows and Wine. The unstable branch can be accessed via CVS (but build bugs should be expected) or downloaded from the Berlios developer site.
MkDoc is a C and C++ code documentation tool. It parse complex code and still produces clear documentation for developers and library users. Unlike most code generation tools, it does not simply write generated code documentation with pieces of user text inside. Instead it handles plain documentation files with sections and other constructs (like Texinfo or LaTeX) and inserts pieces of generated code documentation on request. Thus it does not enforce any way of structuring your document. It has been designed to parse advanced C++ constructs including class inheritance, template specialization, and template instantiation. XHTML, Texinfo, LaTeX, and DocBook output formats are supported.
Thot takes as input text in a wiki-like format and outputs results for different formats: HTML, Latex, DocBook, and PDF. Although delivered with only one input language (Dokuwiki format), Thot is very versatile and easy to extend. For example, the initial version allows you to embed a document description from different entities: source language, GraphViz DOT graphs, Latex math, etc.
Diagnose is a portable vector editor designed for drawing various types of diagrams. It supports features common for this type of application: it allows you to draw lines, arrows, rectangles, and polygons, and it allows you to group them together, and so on. Moreover, it allows you to include snippets of the LaTeX code into the diagram. This means that you can use LaTeX to typeset formulas, paragraphs of text, etc.
