Star is a very fast, POSIX-compliant tar archiver, maintained for more than 30 years. It saves many files together into a single tape or disk archive, and can restore individual files from the archive. It includes command line interfaces for the "tar", "Sun-Tar", "cpio", "pax", and "gnutar" command-line syntax. It includes a FIFO for speed, a pattern matcher, multi-volume support, the ability to archive sparse files and ACLs, the ability to archive extended file flags, automatic archive format detection, automatic byte order recognition, automatic archive compression/decompression, remote archives, and special features that allow star to be used for full and incremental backups. It includes the only known platform independent "rmt" server program.
SHOGUN is a machine learning toolbox whose focus is on large scale kernel methods and especially on Support Vector Machines (SVM). It provides a generic SVM object interfacing to several different SVM implementations, all making use of the same underlying, efficient kernel implementations. Apart from SVMs and regression, SHOGUN also features a number of linear methods like Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA), Linear Programming Machine (LPM), (Kernel) Perceptrons, and algorithms to train hidden Markov models. SHOGUN can be used from within C++, Matlab, R, Octave, and Python.
The Lightweight Java Game Library is a native binding for OpenGL and OpenAL written with game developers in mind. It allows the full OpenGL and OpenAL APIs to be exposed without the penalties associated with competing methods, nor the limitations of APIs such as Java3D. Tutorials and demos are available, and Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X are supported.
The GNU Gatekeeper is a free H.323 gatekeeper based on the OpenH323 project. You can use it to manage a Voice-over-IP network and let endpoints (e.g., Netmeeting) communicate through symbolic names. It also has an external interface for billing and other applications. It runs on a number of Unix versions (including Linux and Solaris) and Windows.
Webdata Pro creates relational database solutions online, and requires no technical, programming, or SQL knowledge. It runs on any server that has MySQL. While many have mastered the HTML skills necessary to publish a Web page, integrating a database into a Web site remains a daunting task for most non-programmers. Webdata Pro solves this problem. Its Web interface provides the administrator a point-and-click path through building tables, designing search pages/reports/forms, managing records, and defining member accounts. All functions are accessed through a browser with simple, non-technical instructions. It has a built-in shopping cart, and can easily import data from other programs and upload images or documents through the browser. The program has powerful member privileges, allowing the administrator to control each member's access to the data. Calculation fields such as SUM, AVG, COUNT, ESCAPE, IF-ELSE, and more are included. Further, the software creates complex JOIN queries automatically. The administrator just selects the fields and Webdata Pro does the rest. It is designed with speed in mind, and is able to search millions of records quickly. Individually customized reports and forms can be generated using any HTML editor.
