The aim of ADF MAGE-ML Tool is to provide a module for converting ADF files (a tab delimited file representing microarray design layout) into MAGE-ML format, and for generating an ADF from an array design described in MAGE-ML format. The module is build upon the ADF specifications and using MAGE-Stk APIs (Java). MIAME-compliance checking, a logging system, and integration of LifeScience Identifier (LSID) specifications are key components of the module. The module can be used via the command line or a graphical user interface.
The Aardvark Shell Utils is a collection of three utilities designed to aid the user when working with shell scripts or from the command line. All three accept input on the command line or from standard input, and thus they can be piped with other commands. All commands come with their own man page. Included are realpath, filebase, and fileext.
ATF is a collection of libraries and utilities designed to ease unattended application testing in the hands of developers and end users of a specific piece of software. Tests can currently be written in C/C++ or POSIX shell and, contrary to other testing frameworks, ATF tests are installed into the system alongside any other application files. This allows the end user to easily verify that the software behaves correctly on her system. Furthermore, the results of the test suites can be collected into nicely-formatted reports to simplify their visualization and analysis.
BRL-CAD is a powerful constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing support for rendering and geometric analysis, path-tracing for realistic image synthesis, network distributed framebuffer support, and image and signal-processing tools.
BlueSense SDK is a software development kit for communicating with BlueSense equipment. It allows you to read out sensors or control actuators. A user-space USB driver for all platforms is included. Examples for all modules are also included. For Java and Mono/C#, there is an object-oriented interface, and for C, there is a function based interface.
BongoSurfer is a least-cost router for Linux, like the Smartsurfer program for Windows. It allows you to connect to the Internet with a 56k modem or ISDN, and chooses the cheapest provider for you. The tariff database is updated every day from http://www.billiger-surfen.de/. Since the tariffs only apply within Germany, the program is of little use in other countries. It features a cost calculator, a traffic monitor, an online timer, and more.
CTL is a cross-platform control dispatching tool that makes it easy to automate any kind of distributed systems management or application provisioning task. Rather than writing complex and error-prone scripts that over utilize "for loops", CTL handles the network dispatching for you and allows you to focus on the actual management tasks you need to accomplish. In addition to being a dispatching tool, CTL comes with pre-built cross-platform utilities so you don't have to script actions like file distribution or process and port checking. You can also write your own custom utilities and share them with others in your organization. Custom utilities are defined in XML, and your scripting can be done in multiple scripting languages (Perl, Python, etc.), *nix shell, Windows batch, and/or Ant.
