Sparse is a semantic parser of source files. It's neither a compiler (although it could be used as a front-end for one) nor a preprocessor (although it contains a preprocessing phase). It is meant to be a small, simple, easy to use library. Its function is to create a semantic parse tree for some arbitrary user for further analysis. It's not a tokenizer, nor is it a generic context-free parser. Context (semantics) is what it's all about: figuring out not just what the grouping of tokens are, but what the types are that the grouping implies.
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.
RIB is a software package for creating WWW metadata repositories. Metadata, from RIB's perspective, is information that describes reusable objects, such as software. RIB allows the user to enter metadata into a Java applet, which then sends the information to an RIB server via HTTP. The information is then stored in an SQL database, where it is automatically made available in a fully functional Web site (catalog, search page, etc). Repositories that use similar data models can use the XML processing capabilities to share information via the Internet.
Linux Video Maker is application for generating DVD or (S)VCD structures that are ready to record on CD or DVD. It is a GUI for transcode, mplex, DVDAuthor, and few other programs. It makes the creation of DVDs and VCDs easier, especially for beginners. Linux Video Maker prevents many mistakes, especially in the conversion process, which can take a lot of time.
In Haskell, data type declarations, Parsec parsers, and HughesPJ pretty-printers very much resemble each other; supplying all three is virtuous, but involves a large amount of code duplication. syntran is a code generator designed to reduce the amount of duplication. Its source is similar to a Parsec LanguageDef-using parser, annotated with the unique information from the data type declaration and the pretty-printer which would normally not be found in a parser. It separates this information out to generate pure Haskell.
firmware-tools is an architecture that utilizes native Linux packaging formats (.rpm and .deb) and native Linux change management frameworks (yum, apt, etc) for delivering and installing system firmware. This architecture is OS distribution, hardware vendor, device, and change management system agnostic.
