xml_pickle performs serialization to an XML format with several properties not possessed by the standard pickle module, namely, the format is human-readable, the format supports validation of stored serialized objects, and the format may be parsed, manipulated, and objects imported, by languages other than Python,
Parallel Bladeenc is a true parallel version of the Bladeenc MP3 encoder; it distributes work across CPUs to speed up MP3 encoding. It uses the Message Passing Interface (MPI) for parallelization across SMPs and/or multiple machines. Hence, if you have a 4-way SMP, you can encode your MP3s about 4 times as fast as the regular Bladeenc; if you have two 4-way SMPs, you can encode about 8 times as fast.
Lithos is an evolutionary computation system using a computationally complete stack-based representation language. The sample application evolves programs to play the game of Go. The system can be applied to other areas by plugging in a different evaluation function. ANSI C source code is provided.
Libmmoss enables the Linux version of Netscape Navigator/Communicator to play sounds from Java applets. It is a replacement for Netscape's implementation of (the Java class) sun.audio.AudioDevice (including some JRI native C code). It should work with either the OSS or ALSA sound drivers. The latest version will also work with EsounD.
