The libmba package is a collection of mostly independent C modules potentially useful to any project. There are the usual ADTs including a linkedlist, hashmap, pool, stack, and varray, a flexible memory allocator, CSV parser, path canonicalization routine, I18N text abstraction, configuration file module, portable semaphores, condition variables, and more. The code is designed so that individual modules can be integrated into existing codebases rather than requiring the user to commit to the entire library. The code has no typedefs, few comments, and extensive man pages and HTML documentation.
utf8proc is a library for processing UTF-8 encoded Unicode strings. Some features are Unicode normalization, stripping of default ignorable characters, case folding, and detection of grapheme cluster boundaries. The library can be used in C programs, but most of the functionality is also available as a ruby library. For PostgreSQL, there is an extension providing a function for preparing strings in case insensitive indices. The currently supported Unicode version is 5.0.0.
SQL Construction Kit aims to provide a simple builder/factory pattern based approach to generating DML SQL for all popular RDBMS systems. Included builders are SelectBuilder, InsertBuilder, UpdateBuilder, and DeleteBuilder. It is much lighter weight than any of the ORM tools available, and is 100% Java. It is a complete re-factoring of code that has been in production use since 2001 (updated to use features of Java 6). Also included is a Facade patterned Database object that wraps a Datasource object. This provides an execution framework for the results of the Builder objects, which includes simplified transaction and batch management as well as the ability to transparently handle SQL exceptions in a default manner. The Database object also provides a simple object-oriented approach via wrappers around the database metadata.
TM++ is an embedded, portable, persistent Topic Maps engine. It is designed to work according to the ISO standards for TMDM 1.0 and XTM 1.0/2.0 on Windows and most POSIX-compliant operating systems like Unix and Linux. It has interfaces for C++, ALLEGROCL, CHICKEN, CLISP, CFFI, C#, Guile, Java, Lua, Modula 3, Mzscheme, Ocaml, Octave, Perl, PHP4, PHP5, Pike, Python, R (aka GNU S), Ruby, Lisp S-Expressions, Tcl, Common Lisp/UFFI, and XML.
furious_tv is a PVR backend that uses an SQLite database to hold XMLTV listings data. Using that data, it can automatically execute commands to record TV shows off of a capture device (multiple capture devices are supported). If Shuriken is installed, furious_tv can also automatically power the system on/off for recordings to save power.
The Data Mine is a search engine designed to make a more useful interface available to users. It is designed around human-computer intelligent interaction considerations. It divides the screen into two halves. One lets you find all the instances of your query's keywords, and the other lets you look through a highlighted version of the results you choose.
Lua-Sqlite3 is a binding of SQLite 3 for Lua. It is unique in contrast to other database bindings that it consists of two layers. The first layer translates the SQLite 3 implementation's C API to Lua. The second layers are interface layers, written in Lua. These layers provide a nice and smart view of the database.
ChkDB is rule-based data checking software for Oracle, plus files that define rule-sets and data domains (tables/views to be checked). The software is a PL/SQL package and some SQL scripts. There is currently no GUI front-end. For oil and gas data, there are domains and rulesets for well-header, drill-stem-test, and seismic-inventory data.
