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.
The National Space Science Data Center's (NSSDC) Common Data Format (CDF) is a self-describing data abstraction for the storage and manipulation of multidimensional data in a platform- and discipline-independent fashion. It consists of a scientific data management package (known as the "CDF Library") that allows programmers and application developers to manage and manipulate scalar, vector, and multi-dimensional data arrays.
Cultivation explores the social interactions within a gardening community. You lead one family of gardeners, starting with a single individual, and wise choices can keep your genetic line from extinction. While breeding plants, eating, and mating, your actions impact your neighbors, and the social balance sways between conflict and compromise. Cultivation features dynamic graphics that are procedurally-generated using genetic representations and cross-breeding. In other words, game objects are "grown" in real-time instead of being hand-painted or hard-coded. Each plant and gardener in the game is unique in terms of both its appearance and behavior.
DRM-SEQ is a basic drum machine and sampler. It allows realtime pattern creation with customizable samples and tracks. It has an adjustable BPM, swing factor, time signature, and eight banks for patterns, with intuitive key bindings and save/load capabilities for a live environment.
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.
