BabelKit is an interface to a universal multilingual database code table. It takes all of the programming work out of maintaining multiple database code definition sets in multiple languages. The code administration and translation page lets developers define new virtual code tables, new languages, enter all codes and their descriptions, and then translate them into all languages of interest. Perl and PHP classes retrieve the code descriptions and automatically generate HTML code selection elements in the user's language. This makes internationalization and localization of Web sites and database interfaces much easier.
The libmba package is a collection of mostly independent C modules potentially useful to any project. There are the usual ADTs including a linkedlist, hashmap, pool, stack, and varray, a flexible memory allocator, CSV parser, path canonicalization routine, I18N text abstraction, configuration file module, portable semaphores, condition variables, and more. The code is designed so that individual modules can be integrated into existing codebases rather than requiring the user to commit to the entire library. The code has no typedefs, few comments, and extensive man pages and HTML documentation.
pg_collkey is a wrapper to use the collation functions of the ICU library with a PostgreSQL database server. Using this wrapper, you can specify the desired locale for sorting UTF-8 strings directly in the SQL query, rather than setting it during database installation. Default Unicode collation (DUCET) is supported. You can select whether punctuation should be a primary collation attribute or not. The level of comparison can be limited (in order to ignore accents, for example). Numeric sequences of strings can be recognized, so that 'test2' sorts before 'test10'. This library is dependent on ICU.
