Ciao is a complete Prolog system subsuming ISO-Prolog with a novel modular design which allows both restricting and extending the language. Ciao extensions currently include feature terms (records), higher-order, functions, constraints, objects, persistent predicates, a good base for distributed execution (agents), and concurrency. Libraries also support WWW programming, sockets, and external interfaces (C, Java, TCL/Tk, relational databases, etc.). An Emacs-based environment, a stand-alone compiler, and a toplevel shell are also provided.
Hodie prints the current date and time to stdout in Roman numerals, with grammatically correct Latin. Complete with Id., Kal., Non., pridie, postridie, bis, and all the other nice annoyances. As an option, it even provides you with current date according to Roman calendar -- that is 'ab urbe condita'; after Rome was built.
ICU provides a Unicode implementation, with functions for formatting numbers, dates, times, and currencies (according to locale conventions, transliteration, and parsing text in those formats). It provides flexible patterns for formatting messages, where the pattern determines the order of the variable parts of the messages, and the format for each of those variables. These patterns can be stored in resource files for translation to different languages. Included are more than 100 codepage converters for interaction with non-unicode systems.
polcnv is designed to convert files between different encoding methods used for Polish texts. It can be also used to covert plain text documents in any language using supported character encoding methods. The program uses ISO-10646 UCS-4 (equivalent to Unicode UTF-32) as internal representation.
ssct is a command-line utility, humble of intent, that takes a single word, spell checks it, takes the result(s) and then translates them. It works to/from english only. From/to languages are limited by ispell in the first instance, and by the IDP (Internet Dictionary Project) files in the second. Currently the latter includes Spanish, Portuguese (minimal), Latin, German, French and Italian. These files are included with this package. This utility was originally created to make it easier to decode badly-scrawled postcards from Spain.
WordNet® is an on-line lexical reference system whose design is inspired by current psycholinguistic theories of human lexical memory. English nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are organized into synonym sets, each representing one underlying lexical concept. Different relations link the synonym sets.
xgrk provides the possibility to change keyboard mapping with alt-shift or meta-shift combinations or by clicking on the flag image. You will be able to write greek in X programs like netscape or xedit. Keycodes are auto-loaded on startup so it should work with all unices and keyboard layouts. Fonts are not included.
