ACCORD is a C library for composition of SEM or scanning helium-ion microscope images with correction of drift. It is able to compose (average) large sets of extremely noisy images that were acquired by scanning charged-particle microscopes at the highest possible speeds (lowest pixel-dwell times). If the images are composed using traditional techniques, they usually become extensively blurry. The technique that is implemented in this software corrects these derogations by pre-shifting the composed frames.
The Artificial SEM Image Generator (artimagen) library generates artificial scanning electron microscope (SEM) and helium-ion microscope images of various samples, including gold-on-carbon resolution samples and some semiconductor structures. Numerous effects that appear in real SEMs are simulated (noise, drift-distortion, edge-effect, etc.), which enables assessment of imaging, metrology, and other techniques that work with SEM micrographs. Unlike the real SEM images, the artificial images exhibit defined types and amounts of these effects, which is their key advantage.
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.
BitTorrent is a tool for copying files from one machine to another. FTP punishes sites for being popular. Since all uploading is done from one place, a popular site needs big iron and big bandwidth. With BitTorrent, clients automatically mirror files they download, making the publisher's burden almost nothing.
This program runs stat(2) or lstat(2) on each input file and displays the results. By default, stat displays all the attributes returned by stat(2) or lstat(2). Specific attributes can be requested by specifying one of the command-line options. For better integration with scripting languages, the normally human-readable output can be forced to simple, numeric output with a command line option. This utility is inteded to be both command line and output compatible with the utility of the same name on SGI's Irix operating system.
The HLA Standard Library was developed to support the High Level Assembler (HLA), but could be used with other assemblers or higher-level languages if the necessary headers were developed. It supports 32-bit versions of Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and FreeBSD, and is written entirely in HLA. It includes the following modules: args, arrays, bits, chars, console, conversions, cset, date, environment, exceptions, file class, file I/O, filesys, lists, math, memory-mapped files, patterns, RNG, stderr, stdin, stdout, strings, tables, time, timer, zstrings, sockets, threads, and blob. An automated test suite is included.
ICI is a general purpose interpretive programming language that has dynamic typing and flexible data types with the flow control constructs and operators of C. It is designed for use in many environments, including embedded systems, as an adjunct to other programs, as a text-based interface to compiled libraries, and as a cross-platform scripting language with good string-handling capabilities.
