The Better String Library is an abstraction of a string data type which is superior to the C library char buffer string type and C++'s std::string. Among the features achieved are substantial mitigation of buffer overflow/overrun problems and other failures that result from erroneous usage of the common C string library functions, significantly simplified string manipulation, high performance interoperability with other libraries that expect '\0' terminated buffers, high performance common string operations, and functional equivalency with other more modern languages.
Groovy is an agile, dynamic language for the JVM which combines many features from languages like Python, Ruby, and Smalltalk and makes them available to Java developers using a Java-like syntax. It is designed to help get things done on the Java platform in a quicker, more concise, and fun way. It can be used as an alternative compiler to javac to generate standard Java bytecode to be used by any Java project or it can be used dynamically as an alternative language, such as for scripting Java objects, templating, or writing unit test cases.
John the Ripper is a fast password cracker, currently available for many flavors of Unix, Windows, DOS, BeOS, and OpenVMS. Its primary purpose is to detect weak Unix passwords. It supports several crypt(3) password hash types commonly found on Unix systems, as well as Windows LM hashes. On top of this, lots of other hashes and ciphers are added in the community-enhanced version (-jumbo), and some are added in John the Ripper Pro.
The Karmasphere DP language is a high-performance non-blocking parallel language for performing data processing. It is designed to give the user a high degree of control over the usage of system resources, such as how many CPU cores or how much disk I/O time to use, without requiring the software developer to explicitly consider these issues in code. The implementation is a stand-alone library that can be used in any Java 1.5 environment. It can take full advantage of multiprocessor (SMP or NUMA) systems, and may be scaled sideways: since the interpreter and environment are stateless, an entire cluster of machines may run the interpreter in parallel without any need for synchronization.
