Anchor automatically adds curly braces and semicolons to code written in various programming languages, saving typing and making programs easier to read. It lets you pretend to be coding in Python or Lua while actually writing standard C, Java, PHP, C++, .NET, C#, or D. A script may generate files in the target language and invoke the compiler. An example bash script integrates with TCC to make runnable "scripts" with the speed of C. The scripts are easily modified to target another compiler or interpreter.
Linux Programming Tools is a collection of programming tools that help with debugging and performance tuning. It currently includes papi++, a C++ wrapper around PAPI that helps fine-tune C++ code for performance and measure cache misses, branch mispredictions, and so on, and mtrace, an interposition library building upon mtrace(3) that tracks memory leaks with the call stack of the allocations.
