Harry is a small tool for comparing strings and measuring their similarity. It implements several common distance and kernel functions for strings, as well as some exotic similarity measures. For example, Harry supports the Levenshtein (edit) distance, the Jaro-Winkler distance, and the compression distance. Harry is implemented using OpenMP, so its runtime scales linearly with the number of available CPU cores. Efficient implementations and effective caching speed comparison of strings.
PC-BASIC is an interpreter for GW-BASIC files. It can run and convert between ASCII, bytecode, and "protected" (encrypted) .BAS files. It implements floating-point arithmetic in the Microsoft Binary Format (MBF) and can therefore read and write binary data files created by GW-BASIC.
Salsa is a Web application for authoring higher education syllabi called SALSAs (Styled & Accessible Learning Service Agreements). SALSAs promote learner-centric and accessible formatting, well-defined learning outcomes/objectives, and inclusion of required policies: accommodations for students with disabilities, academic honesty, course evaluations, etc. Salsa generates a unique and random hyperlink for you. Use the hyperlink to return and edit your SALSA, or publish your SALSA to generate a new hyperlink to a "read-only" copy of your SALSA in PDF or HTML format. No email address or signup is required.
uncsv is a filter command converting the lines of a CSV file into a non‐escaped, non‐quoted delimited file (pipe by default). csv is the opposite of this command; it takes an un-quoted stream of values, separated by the delimiter of your choice (default: pipe ’|’) and produces a "standard" CSV file. Both tools avoid end‐of‐line character politics and will leave these untouched.
