ALSA MIDI Kommander is a DCOP interface exposing many ALSA Sequencer features for shell scripts, Kommander scripts, or KDE programs requiring MIDI sequencer services. A few utilities are included, which can be used both as programming examples and as real work tools. The main program, "kaseq" is a single executable used as a DCOP service program. It runs as a daemon, allowing only a single running instance, and provides a system tray icon to give visual feedback for MIDI activity and a way to control the program's execution.
The Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is both a reference and a tutorial on shell scripting. This comprehensive book, the equivalent of 1,000+ print pages, covers almost every aspect of shell scripting. It contains 382 profusely commented illustrative examples, a number of tables, and a cross-linked index/glossary. Not just a shell scripting tutorial, this book also provides an introduction to basic programming techniques, such as sorting and recursion. Included scripts are the Game of Life, a Perquackey variant, a Morse code trainer, and an implementation of the Gronsfeld Cipher. This book is suited for both individual study and classroom use. It covers Bash, up to and including version 4.2. Note that users of miniaturized single-board computers running Linux, such as the Raspberry Pi and the Beagle Bone, would find this Guide useful for learning and running Bash scripts to explore and expand the capabilities of these small, but powerful machines.
Amber for Parrot is an object-oriented scripting language for the Parrot virtual machine. It combines the traditional advantages of scripting languages with support for software correctness and large-scale software engineering. Amber for Parrot has syntax and semantics somewhere between those of Eiffel and Ruby.
The Ape Base Compile System is a set of scripts that leverage ESP EPM and MREPO to maintain Red Hat based systems that require custom and secluded binaries. It achieves cross platform reproducible compiles applications like Apache HTTPD, MySQL, and PHP, supports a common --prefix parent directory to allow different versions of an application to be installed, provides an easy method to switch between application versions, places selected application binaries in a central "bin" directory, supports delivery via Yum and other common installers, and provides a method for non-compiled "skeleton" files to be included with installation and distribution.
Audiality is a highly scalable and portable audio engine and synthesizer. MIDI files are used in combination with scripting and modular synthesis, to minimize file sizes and maximize flexibility. Audiality can be used as a music and sound effects player in multimedia productions, or as a realtime MIDI synthesizer.
BitchBurn is a bash script written to make life as a CD burner a bit easier. It covers the most common options in a very simple way. The extended features of the handy tool are: cleaning CDRWs, copying data/audio discs, burning directories to disc, burning iso's to disc, and burning mp3 directories to audio discs.
C-Cramp (the C-Cramp College Radio Audio Management Program) is a Web-based frontend to MySQL for managing the types of things that small radio stations might need: audio files, data, and "metadata"; DJ and staff information, schedules, live music and program logs, and all sorts of other data. Currently, a cross-platform PHP application is the focus of the project, but more features and types of programs are planned that will hopefully enable easier playback, storage, loading, and entering for all types of applicable data.
