rioutil is a utility designed for the use of interfacing with Sonic Blue/dnna's third, fourth, and fifth generations of flash MP3 players (Rio 600/800/900/S-Series/Riot/Cali/Chiba/Fuse and Nike psa[play). On many players, it goes beyond the packaged software by providing downloading.
rlimit is a program that lets you run processes with system resource limits set. It can be used by software developers and testers to test that software will run correctly in resource restricted environments. It is also useful for software which would otherwise consume excessive resources such as programs that used 100% CPU, set their own priority levels, or consume too much memory. This is basically a command line interface to the system functions getrlimit() and setrlimit().
The rt-stepper project provides a USB CNC controller solution. Most CNC controllers are designed to be driven with a PC parallel port. The rt-stepper solution replaces the parallel port with USB. Users can convert their existing parallel port CNC controller into a USB CNC controller. Designers can integrate the hardware into there own CNC controller. The PC side software is based on the popular EMC2 software at www.linuxcnc.org. EMC2 provides 4-axis support, a complete gcode interpreter, a trajectory planner, a GUI front-end, backplotting, and more. The best part of the solution is since the rt-stepper hardware provides the real time step pulses, you can now run EMC2 on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows.
rtf2latex2e is an utility to convert RTF files from popular word processors to the LaTeX2e format for those who value quality typesetting. rtf2latex2e uses the RTF reader package by Paul DuBois to parse the RTF code and generates an appropriate LaTeX file. The main features of rtf2latex2e are: detects text style: bold, italic, color, big, small,... reads embedded figures: PICT, WMF, PNG, JPEG,... reads tables: simple to semi- complex equations: reads out Equation Editor equations (courtesy Steve Swanson, http://www.mackichan.com) symbols: converts most greek and math symbols reads footnotes (not in tables yet), and converts hypertext links using the hyperref package.
