A series is a data structure much like a sequence, with similar kinds of operations. The difference is that in many situations, operations on series may be composed functionally and yet execute iteratively, without the need to construct intermediate series values explicitly. In this manner, series provide both the clarity of a functional programming style and the efficiency of an iterative programming style. Series is the culmination of many years of design and use of this approach, during which some 100,000 lines of application code have been written (by about half a dozen people over the course of seven years) using the series facility in nearly all iteration situations. This includes one large system (KBEmacs) of over 40,000 lines of code. In a nutshell: Think "Efficient MAPCAR". SERIES translates functional-style expressions into efficient loops.
Cheetah is a Python-powered template engine and code generator. It can be used as a standalone utility or it can be combined with other tools. Web developers are its principle user group, but it has many potential uses and is also being used to generate C++ game code, Java, SQL, form emails, and even Python code.
Elmer allows Python code to run from C or Tcl as if it was written in C or Tcl. Elmer generates "glue" code that embeds an interpreter for one type of language into an extension for another. Elmer allows function calls and various data types, both native and custom, to pass transparently between the two languages.
h2incn tries to directly convert C/C++ headers to Nasm-style include files, and can be used in a makefile. It is useful if you want to use the same structures or external variable declarations in C and assembler code, and you don't want to use two separate files and update both each time you change something. It is written in a mix of C and C++ code. It currently works for simple files.
re2c is a tool for writing fast and flexible lexers. Unlike other such tools, it concentrates solely on generating efficient code for matching regular expressions. This make it suitable for a wide variety of applications. The generated scanners approach hand-crafted ones in terms of size and speed.
Caffeine is a free high-performance interoperability solution between the Java platform and the .NET framework, with special emphasis on the enterprise variants of such platforms. It makes software originally written for .NET available to the Java platform. It promotes library reuse between Java and .NET by transferring APIs across environments, and allows code written for one platform to run on the other platform with minimal performance degradation. It is powered by Mono, and runs on Alpha, Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, HPPA, SPARC, and s390 systems.
Junitour is a plugin/enhancement for ANT or Maven to enrich junit reports. It adds a new state, "yellow" or "blue", to unit tests, which means "not fully implemented". This extends normal Junit reports with an overview of how many not-fully-implemented tests exist. An additional column marks not-fully-implemented tests. Junitour can be used in any standard build process with ant.
xcb-proto contains descriptions of the X Window System core protocol and selected extensions in an XML-based data format. They are used by the X C Binding (XCB) library to generate much of its code, but you can also use these descriptions for other purposes, such as decoding the X protocol or building X Window System bindings for other languages.
