Jif (Java + information flow) is a security-typed programming language that extends Java with support for information flow control and access control, both at compile time and at run time. Static information flow control can protect the confidentiality and integrity of information manipulated by computing systems. The compiler tracks the correspondence between information the policies that restrict its use, enforcing security properties end-to-end within the system. After checking information flow within Jif programs, the Jif compiler translates them to Java programs and uses an ordinary Java compiler to produce secure executable programs.
netgviz is a set of scripts that allows you to easily make graphs illustrating layouts of computer networks at ISO/OSI layer 3. It parses a text file with a list of network nodes with their addresses and generates the data in dot format, which is suitable for a Graphviz set of tools. You can then use Graphviz to draw a graph illustrating the network topology.
Lux23 is a front end for the Heyu X10 automation program. It provides a command line interface for configuring and controlling the X-10 UX23A "VCR Commander II" RF-to-IR converter device. The converter emulates IR remote controls for TV, VCR, DVD, cable box, satellite box, and CD appliances from a variety of manufacturers. A cable with three IR emitters is shipped with the device, providing for control of up to three compatible appliances via RF signals. It requires an X-10 CM17A "Firecracker" device to transmit the RF signals.
MPIBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses MPI and achieves significant speedup on cluster machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 1.0.2 or newer (i.e. anything compressed with MPIBZIP2 can be decompressed with bzip2).
