GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.
ZSNES is an SNES emulator for i386 machines running Linux, DOS, or Windows. It allows you to play most SNES games on your PC. It also adds several enhancements not present in the original SNES such as filters to improve image quality, savestates to be able to save/restore your game at any time, and more.
MaKL is a simple and light framework for building multi-platform C/C++ projects, purely based on the Bourne Shell and GNU Make. It is much easier to install and use than other typical building systems, while maintaining the essential functionality. It is ideal for embedded systems due to its cross-compilation, multiplatform toolchaining mechanisms, and minimal external dependencies.
