arc is an ASN.1 compiler written by FORGE Research for use in internal projects. It is being released under a BSD-like licence. arc creates Java source code that uses the basic ASN.1 classes that were created for use with other FORGE projects. These basic ASN.1 classes are included in the arc distribution.
The Archive::Zip module allows a Perl program to create, manipulate, read, and write Zip archive files without calling an external program. Members can be added, removed, extracted, replaced, rearranged, and enumerated. They can also be renamed or have their dates, comments, or other attributes queried or modified. Their data can be compressed or uncompressed as needed, and members can be created from members in existing Zip files, or from existing directories, files, or strings.
Argtable is an ANSI C library for parsing GNU style command line arguments, as in "foo -abc -o myfile --help --count=7". It enables a program's command line syntax to be defined in the source code as an array of argtable structs. The command line is then parsed according to that specification, and the resulting values are returned in those same structs where they are accessible to the main program. The default parsing, validation, and error reporting routines may be replaced by user-defined callbacks if desired, and new argtable data types may be created to parse user-defined argument types. The parsing itself is done using GNU getopt and so is 100% GNU compatible.
Ariadne is a Web Application Framework and Content Management System built with PHP. It allows you to build complex Web applications and sites with ease. It takes care of the mundane stuff like internationalization, security, user management, templating, data retrieval and storage, caching, and site management. It stores content in a structured object store that can be accessed through an extensive filesystem-like API.
as-gps contains a basic support library for accessing the inexpensive ($20) Aisin-Seiki GPS Module previously available at mavin.com. The package also includes several simple console utilities for dumping satellite status, location, and time and for synchronizing the system clock.
AsciiArtWidget creates and handles a widget with bindings appropriate for easy creation of ascii art. Basically it is a text widget filled with spaces and newlines, and character inserts replace a space, and backspace/delete replace characters with spaces so that the right hand side of the image is always in the right spot. Includes a mouse drag painting binding, and block sleection/delete, as well as a data loading and squaring system.
asmutils is a set of miscellaneous utilities written in assembly language, targeted on embedded systems and small distributions (e.g. installation or rescue disks). It also contains a small libc and a crypto library. It is optimized for size, memory usage, and speed, and offers fairly good functionality. The project supports Linux and the BSD family. Unixware, Solaris, and AtheOS support is in beta stage. This package also aims to provide a portable development framework, and to encourage assembly programmers to write for Linux/Unix.
