Erudite is an application for training and testing back propogation neural networks using the ANNeML (Artifical Neural Network Markup Language) XML format. It supports testing and training neural nets with CSV files and has support for randomized training sets, optional adapting learning rate, sigmoid or hyperbolic tangent transfer functions, optional bias and weight adjustment locking, and more.
The DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite (DAPS) provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. It lets you create HTML (including Webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. It automatically takes care of validating and filtering (profiling) your sources and automatically converts images into a format best suited for the output format. You can easily create profiled source tarballs for translation or review. DAPS supports authors by providing linkchecker, validator, spellchecker, and editor macros. It is well suited to manage large documentation projects with multiple authors using the DAPS docmanager.
jPDFNotes is a Java bean component which can be integrated into Java applications or deployed on the Web in an applet or using Java Web start. It allows users to mark up, review, and annotate PDF documents online. Most PDF annotations and features are supported, including graphical, sound, free text, typewriter, measurements (distance, perimeter, and area), file attachments, and bookmarks. All PDF fonts are supported (Types 0-3, OpenType, and TrueType).
PHPTAL is a fast, safe, XML-based template engine for XHTML and HTML5. It implements Zope's Template Attribute Language, which has clean, concise syntax that is compatible with XML tools (no custom ugly tags), and template source files can even be previewed in Web browsers or opened in WYSIWYG editors. Templates are compiled to PHP and cached, giving great performance and taking advantage of PHP accelerators. PHPTAL by default ensures well-formed output and escapes XML-unsafe characters everywhere, which means that your pages can be completely safe against HTML-injection (XSS) without great effort. It features fine-grained caching of output, pre- and post- filters, internationalization via gettext or custom backend, creation of custom template attributes and expressions, and templates loaded from non-standard sources (e.g. databases). It supports UTF-8 well, is easy to integrate and redistribute with PHP frameworks and applications, and has an object-oriented design and a comprehensive unit test suite.
SWEC is a program that automates testing of dynamic Web sites. It parses each HTML file it finds for links, and if those links are within the site specified, it will check that page as well. In addition to parsing and locating links, it will also parse the pages looking for known errors and report those. It will report if a page cannot be read (by either returning a 404, 500, or similar).
LinkIt is a simple program to validate local links within HTML documents. It tries to check that every referenced local file (another HTML document, an image, or a CSS entry) exists and is accessible. The checking is performed recursively, and all reachable documents are checked. When the referenced local file doesn't exist, the program reports the filename, row, and column where the broken reference is located.
smupcheck, which stands for Smart Update Checker, checks Web sites for updates automatically, even if they don't offer an RSS feed. It is a very basic tool, and does not offer advanced features such as checking password-protected Web sites, highlighting changes, or filtering results.
