The Noble Ape Simulation is a collection of a number of autonomous simulation components including a landscape simulation, biological simulation, weather simulation, sentient creature (Noble Ape) simulation, and a simple intelligent-agent scripting language (ApeScript). Noble Ape also contains a social simulation where the Noble Apes can be tracked in terms of social groups and also over many generations to explain social phenomenon to users looking to study this kind of interaction. It has been in development for more than a fifteen years.
RubyDNS is a high-performance DNS server that can be easily integrated into other projects or used as a stand-alone daemon (via RExec). By default, it uses rule-based pattern matching. Results can be hard-coded, computed, fetched from a remote DNS server, or fetched from a local cache, depending on requirements. In addition, RubyDNS includes a high-performance asynchronous DNS resolver built on top of EventMachine. This module can be used by itself in client applications without using the full RubyDNS server stack.
asq is simple implementation of a LINQ-inspired API for Python which operates over Python iterables, including a parallel version implemented in terms of the Python standard library multiprocessing module. The API sports feature equivalence with LINQ for objects, 100% statement test coverage and comprehensive documentation. asq provides a fluent interface making extensive use of method chaining to create complex queries without compromising readability. asq works with Python 2.6 and higher, including Python 3. It has been tested on Python 2.6, Python 2.7, Python 3.1 and Python 3.2. It is also tested on IronPython 2.6 and IronPython 2.7.
