Barman (backup and recovery manager) for PostgreSQL is an administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers. It allows remote backups of multiple servers in business-critical environments and helps DBAs during the recovery phase. Barman's most-wanted features include backup catalogs, retention policies, remote recovery, archiving, and compression of WAL files and backups.
pcapfix is a repair tool for corrupted pcap files. It checks for an intact pcap global header and repairs it if there are any corrupted bytes. If one is not present, one is created and added to the beginning of the file. It then tries to find pcap packet headers, and checks and repairs them.
Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.
Singhala keymap provides a means for typing Dual-script Singhala. It is preferably added to the top of the "lk" layout file at X11/xkb/symbols/pc/lk. It is use for romanized Singhala, which fully covers the three languages Singhala, Sanskrit, and Pali. The text typed using it can be displayed in the Singhala script when displayed using orthographic smart-fonts. Where there is no Singhala font available, the text appears as readable Latin text.
ftracer is a simple user space implementation of a Linux kernel style function tracer. It allows you to trace every call in instrumented user applications. It is useful for debugging and performance analysis due to its fine grained time stamp. This allows you to do control flow oriented debugging without any special instrumentation. So if the program does something unexpected, it's easily possible to look at the function calls before that, and use that to deduce the cause of the problem. ftracer relies on gcc generating a call on top of every function call. The tracing slows every function call down (about 3x). The tracing is per thread and does not create a global bottleneck. It supports a dump function in C, directly callable by the program or on exit, and a gdb function to dump from gdb.
SNOW is a utility for concealing messages in ASCII text by appending whitespace to the end of lines. Because spaces and tabs are generally not visible in text viewers, messages concealed with whitespace are effectively hidden from casual observers. If SNOW's built-in encryption is used, the message cannot be read even if it is detected. SNOW exploits the Steganographic Nature Of Whitespace, similar to finding a polar bear in a snowstorm; hence the name.
Mercury is a new logic/functional programming language, which combines the clarity and expressiveness of declarative programming with advanced static analysis and error detection features. Its highly optimized execution algorithm delivers efficiency far in excess of existing logic programming systems, and close to conventional programming systems. Mercury addresses the problems of large-scale program development, allowing modularity, separate compilation, and numerous optimization/time trade-offs.
