Signs is a development environment for hardware designs in various hardware description languages. The tackled tasks are compilation, synthesis, simulation, and testing of designs. Due to the integration of these main areas, it provides the ability to debug designs in an all-embracing manner by switching between source code, netlist, and simulation. Supported languages include VHDL and the ISCAS benchmark format. Signs comes in two flavors: a command-line only version useful for processing and analyzing large netlists and as an Eclipse plugin for hardware design and simulation.
radlib is a C language library developed to abstract details of interprocess communications and common Linux/Unix system facilities so that application developers can concentrate on application solutions. It encourages developers to use a proven paradigm of event-driven, asynchronous design. By abstracting interprocess messaging, events, timers, and any I/O device that can be represented as a file descriptor, radlib simplifies the implementation of multi-purpose processes, as well as multi-process applications. In short, radlib is a sincere attempt to provide real-time OS capability on a non-real-time OS.
lxml is a Python binding for the libxml2 and libxslt XML processing libraries. It aims at ease of use of the API for Python programmers and exposing the many libxml2 features. It implements the Python ElementTree API on top of libxml2. It extends this with support for XPath, XSLT, Relax NG, XML schema, and more.
hellanzb is an application that retrieves and processes NZB files and makes obtaining files from Usenet as hands-free as possible. Once fully installed, all that is required is moving an NZB file to the queue directory. Downloading, par-checking, and un-raring is done automatically by the program.
Launch4j is a cross-platform tool for wrapping Java applications distributed as jars in Windows native executables. The executable can be configured to search for a certain JRE version or use a bundled one, and it's possible to set runtime options, like the initial/max heap size. The wrapper also provides better user experience through an application icon, a native pre-JRE splash screen, and a Java download page in case the appropriate JRE cannot be found. The increase in size of the application is small.
AFNIX is a multi-threaded functional writing system with dynamic symbol bindings that support the object oriented paradigm. It has a rich set of features providing runtime compatibility with C++. The engine runs on both 32- and 64-bit platforms, and it is designed to be portable across platforms.
