xv is an interactive image manipulation program for the X Window System. It can operate on images in the GIF, JPEG, TIFF, PBM, PGM, PPM, XPM, X11 bitmap, Sun Rasterfile, Targa, RLE, RGB, BMP, PCX, FITS, and PM formats on all known types of X displays. It can generate PostScript files, and if you have ghostscript (version 2.6 or above) installed on your machine, it can also display them.
Cult3D is the new multi-platform 3D object rendering engine. It's a technological breakthrough that's 100% software. No additional hardware like 3D accelerator cards are required. As a desktop or notebook user you can now view 3D objects in realtime, a feature formerly found only on expensive workstations. And Cult3D gives all Internet users the opportunity to see high-quality 3D objects on-line on many platforms.
gscan2pdf is a GUI to ease the process of producing PDFs from scanned documents. You scan in one or several pages and create a PDF of selected pages. Scanning is handled with SANE via scanimage. PDF conversion is done by PDF::API2. Perl is used for portability and ease of programming, with gtk2-perl for the GUI.
MagicLight is a 3D modeler, animation system, and renderer. It supports animation, nurbs, free-form deformations, 3D text, and lots of other features. Most of the code is in Java. JOGL is used for 3D display, an internal zbuffer renderer generates high quality images, and an XML format is used for scene descriptions. MagicLight II is a complete redesign of the old version, changing the implementation from C++ to Java.
CDDBD.sh is a shellscript speaking the CDDB Protocol version 1 without enhancements and read only. CDDBD.sh allows to query a local database on a filesystem that was filled with entries using such programs like xmcd or kscd. CDDBD.sh was developed to be used in a local or home network and not to serve a WAN.
SwiftView transforms PCL and HPGL, the data streams sent to HP LaserJet printers and HP plotters, into powerful electronic publishing formats. Directly displaying inherently accurate print stream data eliminates the conversion and proofing process. Print data cannot easily be altered, making SwiftView ideal for distributing important documents and drawings. SwiftView also provides fast, high-quality, interactive viewing of TIFF, JPEG and other formats.
