BLAST is a set of similarity search programs designed to explore all of the available sequence databases regardless of whether the query is protein or DNA. It uses a heuristic algorithm which seeks local as opposed to global alignments, and is therefore able to detect relationships among sequences which share only isolated regions of similarity. It can be run locally as a full executable, and can be used to run BLAST searches against private, local databases, or downloaded copies of the NCBI databases. It runs on Mac OS, Win32, LINUX, Solaris, IBM AIX, SGI, Compaq OSF, and HP- UX systems.
Daikon is an implementation of dynamic detection of likely invariants. An invariant is a property (such as "x=2*y+5" or "this.next.prev = this" or "myarray is sorted by <") that holds at a certain point or points in a program. Invariants are often seen in assert statements, documentation, and formal specifications. Invariants can be useful in program understanding and a host of other applications. Daikon runs a program, observes the values that the program computes, and then reports properties that were true over the observed executions. It can detect properties in Java, C, C++, Perl, and IOA programs, in spreadsheet files, and in other data sources.
Image Commander is a simple program for bulk picture processing. It is set up as a two panel file manager. Users can select operations for processing. It is possible to save information about all accepted operations. At every configuration step of the operation, the user can view a result picture. Finally, after hitting F5 (processing), all files selected in the current panel will be processed with all selected and accepted operations.
JagPDF is a library for generating PDF documents in C/C++, Python, and Java. It supports TrueType (subsetting) and standard 14 Type 1 fonts, font metrics, Unicode, UTF-8 and common 8-bit character encodings, images (JPEG, PNG, or custom), paths, color spaces (RGB, CMYK, CIE based, ICC profiles, indexed), encryption, bookmarks, hyperlinks, and more.
LettersFall 2 is a word game that combines Tetris and Scrabble. It is a fun yet educational game for both children and adults. It downloads and installs in seconds. It features full color, high resolution visual graphics, digital sound effects, a digitally orchestrated music soundtrack, easy-to-play mouse controls, an American English dictionary with over 20,000 words, a saved high scores table, and saved game preferences.
Paragent is a Web-based tool for IT administrators that provides a unified service for hardware and software inventory, alerting, remote desktop, and help desk functions. It delivers these tools in an easy-to-use interface, with one-click access and site-wide built-in advanced search capabilities. It is a combination of applications, including Lisp-based servers collecting data, C++ agents on the client machines, and Java tools for the remote desktop component. Paragent runs on Linux servers and supports Windows clients.
Jigsaw is an embedded data-store designed for the development of data-warehouse, analytical, and machine learning applications. Jigsaw can perform over one million operations a second, and scale to store tera-bytes of data. The object library contains classes for representing ordered and unordered mappings, highly compressed bit vectors with a range of set theoretic operators, and directly integrates a high performance sort system.
Quality Objects (QuO) is a framework for providing quality of service (QoS) in network-centric distributed applications. These applications range from embedded applications to wide area network applications, including many military and commercial applications. QuO bridges the gap between the socket-level QoS being specified, researched, and provided by a number of organizations and the distributed object level where many distributed applications are best written. QuO adds QoS to CORBA and Java RMI in a manner which is appropriate for creating applications that can adapt to environments that are unpredictable or have strict resource constraints.
