The Date::Calc package consists of a (pure-Perl) wrapper which either loads Date::Calc::XS (a separate implementation in C and XS) or Date::Calc::PP (a pure-Perl implementation which is part of the Date::Calc package). The Date::Calc::XS and Date::Calc::PP modules perform all kinds of date calculations based on the Gregorian calendar (the one used in all Western countries today), according to relevant norms and standards: ISO/R 2015-1971, DIN 1355 and, to some extent, ISO 8601 (where applicable). The package is designed as an efficient toolbox, not a bulky ready-made application. It provides extensive documentation and examples of use, multi-language support, and special functions for business needs.
libkdtree++ is a C++ template container implementation of k-dimensional space sorting, using a kd-tree. It sports a theoretically unlimited number of dimensions, and can store any data structure. Provided the data structure, it provides operator[0 - k-1] to access the individual dimensional components (arrays, std::vector already do) and a std::less implementation for the type of dimensional components. It has support for custom allocators, implements iterators, and provides standard find as well as range queries. It has amortised O(lg n) time (O(n lg n) worst case) on most operations (insert/erase/find optimised) and worst-case O(n) space, and also provides a means to rebalance and thus optimise the tree.
Blitz++ library moves high-level optimizations out of compilers and into libraries in C++. It was created due to the fact that until recently, C++ lagged behind Fortran's performance by anywhere from 20% to a factor of ten. The C++ programming language offers many features useful for tackling complex scientific computing problems, but unfortunately, these advanced features came with this hefty performance pricetag. This program presents a possible solution.
The Date::Pcalc Perl module is a direct translation of Steffen Beyer's excellent Date::Calc module from a combination of C and Perl to Perl only. The Perl module does all kinds of date calculations based on the Gregorian calendar (the one used in all western countries today), thereby complying with all relevant norms and standards: ISO/R 2015-1971, DIN 1355 and, to some extent, ISO 8601 (where applicable).
DiaNa is a Perl framework designed to process a huge amount of data, performing from very easy to very complex tasks in a very efficient, spreadsheet-like, batch fashion. DiaNa also features an interactive Perl/Tk GUI, layered on the top of several batch shell-scripts. The DiaNa syntax is a very small and orthogonal superset of the underlying Perl syntax, which allows, for example, comfortable addressing of file tokens and profitable use of file formats throughout the data processing.
The Atropos (formerly AVNMP) Toolkit allows experimentation with predictive capability inside a network while the network is operating: this might be best described as 'in vitro' prediction experimentation. Its purpose is to facilitate experimentation towards addressing a severe limitation in state-of-the-art network management: current management techniques are reactive. The toolkit is an active application that executes in real time within a network that has an overlay active network. Active networking provides a framework in which executable code within data packets executes upon intermediate network nodes. The Atropos Toolkit provides the infrastructure to develop and inject numerous, small, interacting network component models in support of network prediction. Research results in Complexity Theory using Atropos can be found in the DARPA-funded GE Fault Tolerant Networking Project.
The Java Penrose Empires Package allows you to compute the empires (forced tiles) for an arbitrary initial patch of tiles. Tilings may be saved for later, and may be exported to PDF, EPS, or PNG. This software represents a new method of computing forced tiles. Rather than using a "growth" approach (where some tiles are randomly forced), this system only shows the forced tiles in the system, leaving all unforced areas blank.
Date::Calc::XS is a Perl module that is the C/XS part which Date::Calc used to consist of. Date::Calc has become a (pure-Perl) wrapper which tries to load Date::Calc::XS, and failing that, loads Date::Calc::PP (a pure-Perl implementation which is now part of Date::Calc and used to be Date::Pcalc).
