pad sequential filenames so alphabetical order matches numerical order. It automatically determines the necessary integer field width, treats filenames with different prefixes or suffixes separately, removes redundant padding, and is reasonably efficient, even for thousands of names.
Kooka, part of the kdegraphics package, is a raster image scan program which supports OCR. It is based on the scanner access library SANE. It supports scanning in different modes and resolutions, preview, scan area selection, and an image save assistant which features a gallery organised in a treeview with a comfortable image viewer and thumbnail support. OCR is supported through GOCR, an open source project. Kooka uses the libkscan, which offers scanner support to all KDE applications.
Morena is a Java framework that allows a Java program to acquire an image from a scanner or camera. To communicate with the hardware, it uses standard interfaces: Twain for MS Windows and Mac OS X and Sane for a number of Unix platforms (AIX, BeOS, Darwin, FreeBSD, HP-UX, Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OS2, Solaris, Unixware).
Garbure is a collection of dedicated distributions. Each distribution provides carefully selected tools for a specific target domain, and is completed with examples and documentation. The set of distributions forms an entity, but each distribution works also on its own. All elements are arranged in the same way for each distribution.
ExactScan is a versatile document capture application for home offices and workgroups. It is designed from the ground up for high-speed document scanners and can easily handle hundreds of images per minute, including duplex scans. Included functionality reaches from managing, sorting, and editing singles pages to writing multi- as well as single-page PDF files including JPEG compression and TIFF, JPEG, JPEG2000, and PNG bitmap files. ExactScan allows performing state of the art image processing including automatic cropping, deskewing, dynamic thresholding for perfect black and white documents, and descreening print rasters.
FormReturn is OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) software that has many features and is easy to use. It gives anyone the ability to design printable forms and distribute, capture, and automatically grade/analyze handwritten multiple choice response information instantly. All you need is the FormReturn Application, a printer, and a document scanner, and you can process hundreds of forms within minutes.
DynaBlast is a fast Apache HTTPD access_log scanner. It can find hosts that exceed a given number of hits in a given time period, printing them to standard output. It has a "fast mode" that can skip lines that have already been parsed. Multiple dynablast instances are avoided by using a lock file. This make it suitable for crontab usage. It can be run by any user, not just root. It can run in parallel, for example, when analyzing different access_log files. It keeps memory consumption down to about 10 kb, by parsing the access_log file one line at a time.
