The Functional XML Parsing Framework is a package of low-to-high-level lexing and parsing procedures that can be combined to yield a SAX, DOM, validating parsers, or a parser intended for a particular document type. The procedures in the package can be used separately to tokenize or parse various pieces of XML documents. The package supports XML namespaces, character, internal, and external parsed entities, xml:space, attribute value normalization, processing instructions and CDATA sections. It is intended to be a framework, a set of "Lego blocks" you can use to build a parser that follows DOM, SAX, or another discipline, and performs validation to any degree. As an example of such parser construction, the package includes a semi-validating SXML parser. It converts XML to SXML, an instance of XML Infoset as S-expressions, an abstract syntax tree of an XML document. SXML can be queried (in a XPath style), transformed, and evaluated. The framework parses XML in a pure functional style, as folding over a text XML document considered a spread-out tree. The input port is treated as a linear, read-once parameter. The framework's code does not use assignments at all.
Demoroniser is a Perl script which attempts to fix the gratuitously incompatible HTML generated by Microsoft applications. Many Microsoft programs use an 'enhanced' version of Latin-1 with extra characters like quotation marks and dashes. Sometimes people paste these characters into supposedly ASCII or Latin-1 web pages, resulting in pages that don't display properly on non-MS platforms. Demoroniser replaces these MS characters with standard ASCII equivalents. It also fixes up wrongly nested tags generated by HTML export in some MS applications.
UWOBO is a XSLT stylesheet processor running as an HTTP server. In can be contacted with a proper URL which gives the URI of an XML document and a list of stylesheets to be applied. The processor will then apply the stylesheets in the given sequence, and will return the processed document as the result of the invocation.
Gnosis Utils contains several Python modules for XML processing, plus other generally useful tools: xml.pickle (serializes objects to/from XML, API compatible with the standard pickle module), xml.objectify (turns arbitrary XML documents into Python objects), xml.validity (enforces XML validity constraints via DTD or Schema), xml.indexer (full text indexing/searching), and many more.
The ucs-fonts package contains versions of all the "-misc-fixed-*" and Adobe X Window System bitmap fonts which have been extended to the largest possible Unicode subset that is sensible for these font sizes. These fonts are commonly used with xterm and many other applications. This package also includes a tool to convert these Unicode fonts into other encodings, such as the many ISO 8859 sets.
Clusters and server farms often have many nodes and very little hardware support for locating and diagnosing problems, especially if the problem involves the network interface. Helpme is a small stand-alone program that allows a node to use the standard PC speaker, both to signal that a problem has been detected and to render arbitrary alphanumeric text using either Morse code or the NATO phonetic alphabet. The input syntax allows repeating messages and more.
