The purpose of the glideinWMS is to provide a simple way to access the Grid resources. To achieve this without reinventing the wheel, glideinWMS is a Glidein-based WMS (Workload Management System) that works on top of Condor. Once setup, final users can submit regular Condor jobs to the local queue and the glidein factory will provide the computing resources behind the scenes. From the final user point of view, the Condor pool just magically grows and shrinks as needed.
SAOTrace is a suite of software designed to simulate the as-built performance of grazing-angle X-ray optics using the ray-tracing approach. It is derived from portions of the NASA OSAC (Optical Surface Analysis Code) software suite. It can model nested conical as well as flat optical designs, and includes the ability to model arbitrary support structures and baffles. It can model non-ideal multi-layer reflective coatings as well as scattering from the optical surfaces.
Boolean Expression Solver is a commandline utility that generates a truth table for a given Boolean expression. It is written in Java, so it will run on any platform that has the Java runtime environment installed, but the makefile and shell-script included for convenience generally require *nix.
RefSense is a set of command line tools for accessing PubMed. They allow you to search PubMed from a terminal (such as xterm), retrieve Web pages or PDFs, find related articles, convert to BibTeX, and much more by only using a keyboard. It also provides convenient word completion on titles, author names, etc.
wview is an application that controls a supported weather station to retrieve archive records and current conditions. Archive records may optionally be stored in a relational database (MySQL or PostgreSQL). At a user-defined interval, wview will use the archive history and current conditions to generate weather images (buckets and graphs) and Web pages based on configurable HTML templates. It supports serial and USB data loggers, as well as connectivity with a terminal server or serial server via TCP sockets.
RPSL (Rapid Prototyping Shared Library) is a set of bash scripts and utility files that coordinate the GNU autotools and pkg-config for C/C++ build automation. The scripts and procedures define a system for building and linking that supports an individual or small group. A single command (rpslSyncBuild) scans for source, writes a Makefile.am and Configure.ac, and produces a conventional autotools tree ready for the usual "configure, make, make install" build steps.
