Slackpack is a package manager for Slackware Linux. It has a friendly GUI environment and can install packages, list installed packages, remove Slackware Linux packages (.tgz or .txz), and convert to .tgz format from .deb or .rpm. It can download Slackware Linux packages from package repositories, and can create .tgz packages from an application’s source code.
FSter is a virtual filesystem implementation based on FUSE and exploiting Tracker's indexer to allow access to files according to the metadata with which they’re associated. Its behavior is highly customizable with XML configuration to describe in detail the desired hierarchy of files.
Fawkes is a component-based Software Framework for Robotic Real-Time Applications for various platforms and domains. It is developed and used for cognitive robotics real-time applications like soccer and service robotics. It supports fast information exchange and efficient combination and coordination of different components to suit the needs of mobile robots operating in uncertain environments.
The NetCDF package consists of a few tools to operate on NetCDF and, by utilizing the compatibility API, HDF4 files. The tools are intended to be used from shell scripts. They include a couple of simple shell wrappers over the respective NetCDF functions (ncattget and ncattput) and a more sophisticated ncget tool. The ncget tool delivers (for NetCDF) or complements (for HDF4) the functionality of the "hdp dumpsds" command. It allows a selected part of a NetCDF variable or an HDF4 scientific data set (SDS) to be extracted in either an ASCII or binary form, applying the transformation specified by the scale_factor and add_offset attributes. This tool allows one to feed the data of NetCDF variables (or HDF4 SDS) to other tools designed to operate on either ASCII (text) or raw (binary) data.
MammothCopy is a simple, Java-based tool to copy large or many files from one computer on the Internet directly to another. This is also possible with tools like WinSCP and an SSH server, but those are too complex for normal users. MammothCopy is geared towards parents wanting to send photos to their kids, or professionals who want to transfer huge files (only limited to the receiving end’s hard disk space).
Ejecter is a little tool that makes it possible to unmount external devices and eject CD-ROMs without having to right-click on the device icon (either on the desktop or in Nautilus). It sits in the background and shows an icon in the system tray when one or more peripherals are connected to your PC: once clicked, a window appears with the list of the devices (volume name and device type, and much clearer than the similar thing available on Windows) and the related eject button. Being written in Vala, it is translated into C code and then compiled. This means that it's lightweight and consumes little memory, does not require a full VM like Python, and has no strange requirements to run (just GLib/GTK).
