odf-converter-integrator is an easy way to open Microsoft Office 2007 files (also called Office Open XML, OOXML, .docx, .xlsx, and .pptx) with a high-quality conversion on any Linux or Windows system in any ODF-compatible version of OpenOffice.org, StarOffice, Abiword, Gnumeric, or KOffice.
Harry is a small tool for comparing strings and measuring their similarity. It implements several common distance and kernel functions for strings, as well as some exotic similarity measures. For example, Harry supports the Levenshtein (edit) distance, the Jaro-Winkler distance, and the compression distance. Harry is implemented using OpenMP, so its runtime scales linearly with the number of available CPU cores. Efficient implementations and effective caching speed comparison of strings.
bttvgrab is a program for grabbing video sequences using a bt848-based frame grabber card (e.g. Hauppauge WinTV, Miro PCTV...). The goal of bttvgrab is to provide high-quality grabbing suitable for video recording. Currently, this is accomplished by trying hard not to leave out a single frame, and to catch temproary delays by buffering several frames. In the future, synchronized sound will be part of it. Then you can create mpeg movies using mpeg2enc, the output files will be prepared for that, so that the conversion can be done by a simple shell script.
The Nebula Device is a free multiplatform game engine currently running under Linux and Windows. It uses OpenGL and/or Direct3D for rendering and Tcl/Tk for scripting. Living C++ objects can be browsed and manipulated at runtime from the builtin console, or remotedly from a minimal terminal based console app. A powerful channel animation system allows any floating point attribute to be animated, and specialized animator classes allow things like realtime bone animation with weighted vertex skin.
GWCC allows users to execute network utilities (ping, nslookup, traceroute), workstation commands (netstat, df, lpr), and do cool things like process grep from a single tabbed window. Command flags are highly configurable, results windows are savable and printable, and there is a System Stats tab showing you process info, current users, Apache server status, Samba status, and more.
remote_update.pl is a script that utilizes Expect, PERL, and SSH, to perform automated remote administration on a large number of hosts. You define what scripts to run and files to copy for the remote machines, and the script will connect to each machine via SSH to perform the administrative task without interaction. The only thing required to be running on the remote machines is SSH.
CAVE provides an (n)curses interface for viewing ASCII character animations. It features frame cueing, a screen saver (with shuffle), looping, support for gzipped compressed files, extended regular expression frame deliminator matching, autodetect of frame deliminator position, frame marking, and more.
