The Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is both a reference and a tutorial on shell scripting. This comprehensive book, the equivalent of 1,000+ print pages, covers almost every aspect of shell scripting. It contains 382 profusely commented illustrative examples, a number of tables, and a cross-linked index/glossary. Not just a shell scripting tutorial, this book also provides an introduction to basic programming techniques, such as sorting and recursion. Included scripts are the Game of Life, a Perquackey variant, a Morse code trainer, and an implementation of the Gronsfeld Cipher. This book is suited for both individual study and classroom use. It covers Bash, up to and including version 4.2. Note that users of miniaturized single-board computers running Linux, such as the Raspberry Pi and the Beagle Bone, would find this Guide useful for learning and running Bash scripts to explore and expand the capabilities of these small, but powerful machines.
Zild is a C application server with support for the common servlet technology and servlet API in C. It includes support for ServerPages, PHP, XML SAX parser, HTTP/1.1 and SSL/TLS connectors, HTML form-based and Basic Authentication access controls, a built-in embedded SQL database, and many more functions.
Exscript is a scripting language for automating network connections over protocols such as Telnet or SSH. It is in some ways comparable to Expect, but has some unique features that make it a lot easier to use and understand for non-developers. It supports parallelization, logging, authentication mechanisms, and a lot more.
RUBiS is an auction site modeled after eBay.com used to benchmark e-commerce Web site technologies. It is currently used to evaluate design patterns, application servers, and communication layers scalability. Several implementations using PHP, Servlets, Enterprise JavaBeans (EB BMP, EB CMP, MDB, SB, EJB 2.0 CMP, Session Façade, etc.) are already available and new versions for JDO and .Net are currently developed.
Revolution is a user-centric development tool for every major platform. It features an English-like programming language, an advanced feature set, an intuitive interface, and built-in documentation, which makes it ideal for users of all levels of ability. Revolution contains support for databases, Internet protocols, multimedia, XML, and much more. Revolution Studio and Enterprise allow you to write your application once and deploy it on every major platform.
Compact Flash Linux Project is a Linux distribution designed to run on a compact flash card in read-only mode. It is as small as possible, and currently needs around 14 MB. It includes OpenSSH, quagga, iptables, hostap, madwifi, wireless-tools, pppoe, tcpdump, bridge-utils, and more.
P~ (pronounced "P tilde") is a Java-like scripting language and regular expression engine. P~ offers novel powers to match, extract, and transform documents. Regex novelties include an easy-to-read algebraic syntax and general capture and statement insertion side-effects. This is a great benefit to Java users, who no longer need to outsource difficult regex problems to Perl/Python scripts, since ptilde is offered as a Java library as well as a standalone scripting engine.
FrAid (Fr[actal] Aid) is a programming language that is appropriate for mathematical computations, visualization, batch processing, and more. It features both a standalone application that provides a programming environment for the language and a system for integrating the language with Java. The Java interface allows mathematical equations and formulas to be used with Java code, making it easier to process numerical computations, symbolic computations, imaging, CAD, and more.
Amber for Parrot is an object-oriented scripting language for the Parrot virtual machine. It combines the traditional advantages of scripting languages with support for software correctness and large-scale software engineering. Amber for Parrot has syntax and semantics somewhere between those of Eiffel and Ruby.
Pike ScriptRunner allows you to run scripts written in Pike under any FastCGI-enabled Web server. It provides request parsing and I/O handling, enabling you to get right to the task of writing your code. It is a dynamic object-oriented language with a C-like syntax and a number of features that make it desirable for rapid prototyping and deployment of Web applications.
