The Voodoo compiler is an implementation of the Voodoo programming language. The Voodoo programming language is a low-level programming language, abstracting over the platform's instruction set and calling conventions, but otherwise leaving the programmer free to do anything at all. The Voodoo compiler supports multiple target platforms and provides a stand-alone compiler, as well as a Ruby module for programmatic code generation.
downtimed is a program that monitors operating system downtime, uptime, shutdowns, and crashes and records such events. At OS startup it logs information about previous downtime. It then periodically updates a time stamp file on the disk, which is used to determine the approximate time when the system was last up and running. During a graceful system shutdown, it records a time stamp in another file. The downtimes(1) command line tool can be used to inspect records of past downtime.
