The OODBMS/DBMS ODABA is an terminology-oriented database management system (TODBMS) on a high conceptual level. This is an extension of the ODBMS concept according to ODMG 3. It provides a number of enhanced features based on natural language analysis. Beside the database kernel, a number of tools are provided for database design, documentation, and fast development. ODABA provides a powerful interface (C++, .NET) and an ODABA Script Interface (OSI), a C++/JAVA like scripting language, which provides easy access to the database.
The Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is both a reference and a tutorial on shell scripting. This comprehensive book, the equivalent of 1,032 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.
Free Electron is a C++ framework facilitating reuse and integration for R&D projects such as simulation, AI, and visual effects. The core systems include dynamic plugins, a strong component model, and a fast runtime database. All these systems are highly extensible. Integration has been demonstrated with Armadillo, Boost, DevIL, GraphViz, Houdini, JSON, Lua, Maya, ODE, OpenAL, OpenGL, OSG, PCRE, RakNet, SDL (image and joy), and X11/GDI. General operators built with this framework can be used in Houdini and Maya (etc.) without any direct dependencies on those environments (each has a custom meta-plugin which interfaces the APIs). Builds are done with Python scripts (simple at the module level, like Jam, but in Python), and supports distcc, ccache, and gch files.
ltrace is a debugging program which runs a specified command until it exits. While the command is executing, ltrace intercepts and records the dynamic library calls which are called by the executed process and the signals received by that process. It can also intercept and print the system calls executed by the program. The program to be traced need not be recompiled for this, so you can use it on binaries for which you don't have the source handy. You should install ltrace if you need a sysadmin tool for tracking the execution of processes.
Obix is an object-oriented programming language designed to make it easy to quickly write reliable code. More reliability is achieved through language features which consistently support the "Fail fast!" principle (every coding error should be detected as early as possible, preferably at compile-time, or else as early as possible at run-time). The Obix compiler generates Java binaries which can be executed on any Java virtual machine.
A C library for interacting with FBUI, which is an in-kernel windowing system for Linux. The library provides window management, drawing, event management, image manipulation, and a PCF font facility. Included with libfbui is a set of programs that use the library, including a clock, load monitor, terminal, JPEG/TIFF image viewer, MPEG2 player, two window managers, a benchmark program, etc. Both FBUI and libfbui are defunct projects, but the code contained in libfbui may prove useful for other projects.
The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one Internet application suite. It contains an Internet browser, email and newsgroup client with an included Web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat, and Web development tools, and is sure to appeal to advanced users, Web developers, and corporate users. It uses much of the Mozilla source code powering such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird, and Miro.
