SWIG is a software development tool that connects programs written in C and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages. SWIG is primarily used with common scripting languages such as Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl/Tk, and Ruby, however the list of supported languages also includes non-scripting languages such as C#, Common Lisp (CLISP, Allegro CL, UFFI), Java, Modula-3, OCAML, Octave, and R. Also several interpreted and compiled Scheme implementations (Guile, MzScheme, Chicken) are supported. SWIG is most commonly used to create high-level interpreted or compiled programming environments, user interfaces, and as a tool for testing and prototyping C/C++ software. SWIG can also export its parse tree in the form of XML and Lisp s-expressions.
Octave daemon is a network daemon for GNU Octave, implemented in PHP. The package also contains a PHP client for connecting to the daemon. Native PHP applications can also use the connector class to run ad hoc Octave instances, circumventing the daemon altogether (which can be useful for development or small projects).
comedirecord is an oscilloscope program to record data from a COMEDI-compatible device. Its philosophy is to save the data in its original unfiltered form but allow comfortable viewing of the data during an experiment. One can acquire data from multiple DAQ boards simultaneously, and also append data via an incoming TCP port, which could be a telnet connection into comedirecord or data from another program. Low-pass, high-pass, and notch filters can be switched on for each channel. A DC filter can be switched on, which is useful when observing small voltage changes at a high gain (for example, measuring small temperature changes). The output format is ASCII so that the data can be imported into GNUPLOT, scilab, or octave.
Biomechanical ToolKit (BTK) is a cross-platform library for biomechanical analysis. It can read and write a large variety of file formats used in biomechanics, and can modify them. All these operations can be done with the C++ API or with the wrappers included (Python, Octave, and Matlab). The goal of this project is to help the community share data without the restriction of the file format or the biomecanical model provided by the manufacturer of the acquisition system.
jMathLab is a platform for mathematical and numerical computations. It uses the Matlab/Octave programming language. It runs on any platform where Java is installed, and can also run on the Web browser. The following packages are included: symbolic calculations (simplification, differentials, integration), numeric calculations, evaluations of mathematical functions, special functions, linear algebra with vectors and matrices, plotting data and functions, saving data (vectors and matrices) in files, random numbers, statistics, and solving linear and non-linear equations
