Universal Embedded SQL Compiler (UESQLC) is a compiler that provides a common way for accessing heterogeneous databases. UESQLC is based on Structured Query Language (SQL) as a standard for accessing data. This interface provides maximum interoperability, i.e. a single application can access different SQL Database Management Systems (DBMS) through a common set of embedded SQL code (UESQL). This enables a developer to build and distribute a client/server application without targeting a specific DBMS.
ClanLib is a cross-platform game SDK currently supporting Windows and Linux. It provides easy-to-use interfaces for 2D graphics, input, sound, resources, networking, GUI, OpenGL, and more. The goal is to provide a game SDK that does all the dirty work that all modern games need to implement anyway, thus making the game developer concentrate on the gameplay instead of reinventing the wheel over and over again.

sii_printpbm allows you to print PBM files to the Seiko Instruments thermal label printer (SII SLP1100) from a UNIX box. This printer is also sold as the EZ30 Smart Label Printer. You can use ghostscript to render a postscript file to a PBM file and send it to the sii_printpbm installed as a print filter to lpd. This was first seen in action at the Atlanta Linux Showcase in 1998. The program is to be used in conjunction with a print filter that converts an image into a PBM file before sending it to the printer.
DNRD is a proxy DNS daemon. It supports several forward servers for redundancy and/or load-balancing. DNS queries for specific domains can be forwarded to a specific group of DNS servers (with redundancy and load balancing) for that domain. It is very useful in VPN and dialup environments but can also be used as a DNS cache or ad-blocker for networks and workstations.
