A practical lambda-calculator is a normal-order evaluator for the untyped lambda-calculus, extended with convenient commands and shortcuts to make programming in it more productive. Shortcuts are distinguished constants that represent terms. Commands define new shortcuts, activate tracing of all reductions, compare terms modulo alpha-conversion, print all defined shortcuts and evaluation flags, etc. Terms to evaluate and commands are entered at a read-eval-print-loop (REPL) "prompt" or "included" from a file by a special command. A Haskell branch is an embedding of the lambda calculator (as a domain-specific language) into Haskell. The calculator can be used interactively within Hugs or GHCi.
Arad-OneTable-Editor is a set of perl modules to manage and display a dialog for a single-table SQL query. It can verify types, and scroll between the records. The data handling is separate from the dialog class, so it is possible to write different generic dialogs for the same query. A Perl/Tk dialog and a GNU/readline (or plain text) dialog are included in the distribution.
BitTorrent is a tool for copying files from one machine to another. FTP punishes sites for being popular. Since all uploading is done from one place, a popular site needs big iron and big bandwidth. With BitTorrent, clients automatically mirror files they download, making the publisher's burden almost nothing.
Bitgate Server Software Environment aims to build a multi-protocol application environment in which server protocol handlers can be eventually loaded and unloaded on the fly using a center console or controller Web page. It aims to have 99.9% uptime, and have high-availability compliance. It is written in Java 6, and relies completely on Java's I/O functionality to provide non-blocking support for both SSL and non-SSL sockets (without having to know how to use SSLEngine). All configuration is done via XML files, as this is easier to maintain. It includes a minimal demonstration HTTP server.
