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.
nexB OpenAssets is a tool for inventorying, managing, and monitoring applications, software, hardware, networks, and generally any IT asset. It is designed so that system administrators, IT, and finance can determine what they have, how it is configured, what it is used for, and how much it is being used, so that informed decisions can be made. It complements existing network management software, integrates with a growing number of protocols and tools, and features no-agent discovery and inventory, configuration management including dependencies and correlation, monitoring, and reporting. It makes extensive and innovative use of XML, Xpath, and Xquery.
ZMailer is an internet message transfer agent. It is intended for gateways or mail servers or other large site environments that have extreme demands on the abilities of the mailer. It was motivated by the problems of the Sendmail design in such situations. It is intended and designed as a multi-protocol mailer. The only protocol supported in this distribution is RFC822 (and variations).
SourceID Liberty is a Java implementation of the Liberty Alliance ID-FF 1.2 protocols. It has a workflow-based architecture that provides a great deal of flexibility and extensibility. A server-based application, it focuses on making it possible to seamlessly adapt the Liberty 1.2 federation protocols to existing infrastructure.
There are many instances when one needs to process certain objects on seperate threads. But spawning a seperate thread per object may cause the system to crash. The Thread Pooling Framework can be used to process the the objects on a predefined number of threads. If all threads are busy, the objects are kept in the pool. Whenever a thread ends, an objects is taken from the pool and processed on a new thread. This continues until the pool is empty.
netpbm-free is Debian's fork of netpbm that was designed with security of code, reliability of interfaces, and freedom of software in mind. It is a suite of over 200 different programs from different authors, and is itself a fork of pbmplus. The suite supports almost every graphic format (including JPEG, PNG, BMP, ICO), and can create, change, crop, rotate, and transform in and between these formats.
