Minimac is a minimalist, general purpose text macro processor. Its simplicity should make it particularly well suited as a front end preprocessor for little language compilers. It is meant to be simpler to use than m4. It uses an explicit argument stack, and user functions are defined by concatenation (similar to the Forth language). Macro expansion is delayed to the last possible moment. The software is currently in alpha release.
cencode encodes a stream or a file into quoted c-string escape sequences, suitable for use directly in C code. It is a universal alternative to dedicated export formats like XPM, unportable resource forks, linker flags, and Windows resources where dynamic loading of external data is not possible or undesired.
Sunifdef is a command line tool for eliminating superfluous preprocessor clutter from C and C++ source files. It is a more powerful successor to the FreeBSD 'unifdef' tool. Sunifdef is most useful to developers of constantly evolving products with large code bases, where preprocessor conditionals are used to configure the feature sets, APIs or implementations of different releases. In these environments, the code base steadily accumulates #ifdef-pollution as transient configuration options become obselete. Sunifdef can largely automate the recurrent task of purging redundant #if logic from the code.
rfc2mib is a short Tcl script which may be used to extract MIB (Management Information Base), PIB (Policy Information Base), and ASN.1 modules from an RFC document. Unlike most extractors, this script is smart enough to recognize ASN.1-style comments prior to or within the module header. It also recognizes the use of the "TagDefaults" part of the module header (not used by MIB modules), module headers that are broken across multiple lines, and macro definitions.
PHPCoder is a Web-based frontend to the Turck MMCache encoding functions, which are similar to the Zend Encoder product. PHPCoder enables you to encode your PHP scripts and applications into non-reversible bytecode, thus preventing users of your programs from viewing or altering the source code while having full functionality. Another excellent use for PHPCoder is to encode your applications PHP configuration files, that way someone viewing your source code does not see your databae login and password information. It also allows you to set restrictions on the encoded scripts, you can lock a script to a particular server IP address, server host name, visitor IP, or even place a time limit on the script so it will expire after a configurable amount of time. You specify Text, HTML, or PHP code that should be prepended and appended to each file before it is encoded, allowing you to easily and securely implement your own licensing scheme.
Unifdef is useful for removing #ifdef'ed lines from a file while otherwise leaving the file alone. You specify which symbols are defined or undefined with -D and -U flags, and unifdef removes the corresponding ifdefs, and the enclosed code if appropriate. It's especially useful for removing those "#ifdef BROKEN" and "#ifdef PRIVATE" clauses from code before you release it. Unifdef acts on #if, #ifdef, #ifndef, #elif, #else, and #endif lines, and it knows only enough about C and C++ to know when one of these is inactive because it is inside a comment or a single or double quote.
