SOFA is a statistics, analysis, and reporting program with an emphasis on ease of use, learning as you go, and beautiful output. SOFA can connect directly to your database and lets you display results in an attractive format ready to share or put in a spreadsheet. SOFA will help you learn as you go, whether you are a student, business analyst, or researcher.
Siren Renamer is a tool that renames, moves, and copies files using an expression. A lot of information associated with a file can be used, including name, extension, dates, and selection number. Other information is extracted from files according to their type: audio, video, image (standard and raw), EXIF, IPTC, Office document, PDF, ePub, HTML, and many others. Many different operations can be performed on character strings, complete directory trees can be processed, and images can be viewed. For example, to change a file name to uppercase with the mp3 extension, the expression can be '%ub.mp3'.
HeeksCAD is a CAD application. It can import solid models from STEP and IGES files, draw construction geometry and lines and arcs, create new primitive solids, or make solids by extruding a sketch or by making a lofted solid between sketches. Solids can be modified using blending or boolean operations. Models can be saved as IGES, STEP, and STL. The 2D geometry can be plotted with a printer or to HPGL. DXF files can be imported and exported; lines, arcs, spline, ellipses, and polylines are supported. SVG import has similar capabilities. It is possible to make Add-In modules. The HeeksCNC project provides a CAM add-in, and HeeksPython provides a Python console.
The "Sound of Sorting" is a demo program containing many integer sorting algorithms. The algorithms are visualized in real time and augmented with sound effects, which are based on the values being compared. Animation speed and sound sustain can be customized while the algorithm is running. The visualization also highlights the algorithm's internal workings, which makes the demo program very useful for teaching sorting algorithms in an undergraduate computer science course. The program also counts the number of comparisons done by an algorithm, which can then be compared to the analytically derived value. The demo is implemented using the cross-platform toolkits wxWidgets and SDL, and can be executed on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
RPhoto is a handy image editor to simplify cropping of digital camera pictures and avoid white borders introduced by incorrect height/width ratios. It also has lossless rotate and flip features, as well as a unique way to rectify a bad angle by only drawing a horizontal or vertical line.
