pam_redirector is a pluggable authentication module (PAM) that allows redirection of login credentials to a local UNIX stream socket server and includes an example simple socket server (written in Python) just to show how easy it is to do this redirection. It is a simple C module that can transfer (redirect) credentials to a long-running server written in a scripting language. This is preferable to using direct PAM support in a scripting language because instantiating a full interpreter on every login is quite expensive.
LAPLib (Linear Algebra Performance Library) is an object-oriented software library which provides an elegant interface to access the optimized performance of these old-style libraries. LAPLib transparently handles all low-level details concerned with invocation of BLAS and LAPACK functions. Using LAPLib, developers can write expressions in a C++ object-oriented fashion and greatly reduce the complexity associated with using BLAS and LAPACK routines while maintaining excellent performance.
Acovel is a cross-platform media player (currently running on Linux and Windows). It features an intelligent algorithm that will analyze both ID3 (v1 ahd v2) tags and filenames to fill up its music collection database. Its search feature is very fast. It is currently limited to playing albums, but upcoming versions will make it a full-featured media player.
Interface Kit Daemon utilizes the libphidgets library released by www.Phidgets.com to gather data for monitoring software. It was initially used to interface with the Zabbix network monitoring suite. However, it can be interfaced with any monitoring solution that can read numerical data from standard text files created with the daemon with sensor states.
bwfirt is a framework for benchmarking ray tracing kernels in the context of a realistic light simulation application. The most important capabilities tested here are: fast ray shooting and visibility functions for incoherent mono-rays (no bundles), numerical robustness, and small memory footprint. The framework implements a simple pathtracer to generate rays with a real-life distribution. Developers can easily plug in their cores to the framework, which then compiles the output images, running times, and memory utilizations of the different kernels into a PDF, providing a clear comparison.
