LIME is a dynamic programming language with a LISP-like syntax. It features partial function application, eager and lazy evaluation, call-by-value and call-by-reference, macros, reading/writing LIME code as data, a standard library including infinite streams, and an interactive mode with auto-indentation.
Moosic is a music player that focuses on easy playlist management. It consists of a server process that maintains a queue of music files to play and a client program which sends commands to the server. The server continually runs through its playlist, popping items off the top of the list and playing each with an external program. The client is a simple command-line utility which allows you to perform powerful operations upon the server's queue, including the addition of whole directory trees, automatic shuffling, and item removal according to regular expressions. The server comes configured to play MP3, Ogg, MIDI, MOD, and WAV files.
The NCBI C++ Toolkit provides portable libraries and applications for assisting genetic science. These include libraries for networking, SQL and BerkeleyDB access, CGI and HTML handling, ASN.1 and XML handling, sequence alignment engines, sequence retrieval engines, BLAST database engines, FLTK and OpenGL graphics toolkits, and basic system utilities.
Platform Independent Petri Net Editor (PIPE) creates and analyses Petri Nets quickly, efficiently, and effectively. A key design feature is the modular approach adopted for analysis, enabling new modules to be written easily and powerfully, using built-in data layer methods for standard calculations. Six analysis modules are provided, including Invariant Analysis, State-Space Analysis (deadlock, etc.), and Simulation Analysis and Classification. PIPE adheres to the XML Petri net standard (PNML). The file format for saving and loading Petri Nets is extensible through the use of XSLT, the default being PNML.
Primrose is a game that presents a deep puzzle that is completely fresh. Primrose's gameplay is deceptively simple: Surround tiles of one color with another color to clear them. The surrounding tiles flip color, leading to possible chain reactions. Larger groups cleared and longer chain reactions are awarded more points. This simple setup has many interesting emergent properties, creating a challenging game without resorting to external gimmicks like time pressure. The game also features a world-wide online high score board complete with instant replay, move-by-move, of all top-scoring games.
Real-Time Control Systems Library contains a mix of software found to be useful in the development of real-time control systems at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It includes the Neutral Messaging Language (NML), which is used for simple configurable communications for both Java and C++ applications on a variety of operating systems. It also includes classes for converting between various coordinate systems (collectively called posemath), some XML parsing and generating tools, an .ini file reader, a timer interface, and more.
