GPP is a general-purpose preprocessor with customizable syntax, suitable for a wide range of preprocessing tasks. Its independence from any programming language makes it much more versatile than cpp, while its syntax is lighter and more flexible than that of m4. The syntax is fully customizable, which makes it possible to process text files, HTML, or source code equally efficiently in a variety of languages.
CRM114 is a Controllable Regex Mutilator and Smart Filter, designed for easy creation of filters for things like incoming email redirection, spam filtering, system logs, or monitoring processes. Filtering rules can be either hard-coded (such as regexes), soft-coded (calculated at runtime or read from an external file or process), or learned dynamically by phrase matching (as in Bayesian filtering, Markovian matching, Winnowing, or Hyperspatial classification). This makes it possible to create very accurate filters with very little actual work. Accuracies over 99.9% are achievable.
FrAid (Fr[actal] Aid) is a programming language that is appropriate for mathematical computations, visualization, batch processing, and more. It features both a standalone application that provides a programming environment for the language and a system for integrating the language with Java. The Java interface allows mathematical equations and formulas to be used with Java code, making it easier to process numerical computations, symbolic computations, imaging, CAD, and more.
Neko is a high-level dynamically typed programming language. It can be used as an embedded scripting language. It has been designed to provide a common runtime for several different languages. Learning and using Neko is very easy. You can easily extend the language with C libraries. You can also write generators from your own language to Neko and then use the Neko Runtime to compile, run, and access existing libraries. Neko is a good way for language designers to focus on design and reuse a fast and well-designed runtime, as well as existing libraries for accessing filesystem, network, databases, XML, etc. It has a compiler and a virtual machine. The virtual machine is very lightweight and well optimized. The VM can be easily embedded into any application, and your libraries can be accessed using the C foreign function interface.
Set-cd-rom-speed is an application for setting CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drive speed, written with KDE Kommander. Fast CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives have one big disadvantage over older and slower models in that they are often quite loud because of the disk spinning very fast in the drive. Using set-cd-rom-speed, you can decrease the drive's speed and thus reduce the annoying noise.
