Dr. Geo is an interactive geometry program that is distributed as a universal portable application. It allows one to create a geometric sketch and manipulate it according to its constraints. It is usable at home or at school, in primary or secondary education. It is simple and effective with extended features including scripting and programming.
Squeak is an OpenSource and super-portable implementation of a multi-media capable Smalltalk-80 based object-oriented programming environment. It is written entirely in Smalltalk and has a high-performance VM, created by compiling the Smalltalk VM code into efficient and portable C code. It now uses the Self language's Morphic User Interface but still provides the original MVC GUI as well.
F-Script is a lightweight scripting layer specifically designed for the Mac OS X object system (i.e. Cocoa). It provides scripting and interactive access to Cocoa frameworks and custom Objective-C objects. It aims to be a useful and fun tool for both beginners and experts, allowing interactively exploring, testing, and using Cocoa-based objects and frameworks.
Kew is a simple, embeddable, container-based, object-oriented programming language. Many of its features are inspired by Smalltalk and Scheme. Its syntax is similar to Smalltalk's, but it has the compact and modular design of Scheme, along with proper closures and continuations. There is also powerful exception handling and write-your-own containers, which allow you to produce sandboxes.
Self is a object-oriented programming language. It has a syntax is similar to Smalltalk but uses prototypes and delegation instead of classes and inheritance. The original Self system was developed by Sun Microsystems and Stanford University. Self4Linux is a port of the Self system to Linux.
Genetic Algorithm in Squeak is a genetic algorithm framework that implements the operation of selection, mutation, and crossing-over. Memetic-algorithm capabilities were added through an implementation of a local search based on hill climbing and dynamic hill climbing. Mutation operations are based on random gaussian-like distribution, so small adjustments are more likely than drastic ones. Selection is implemented with Tournament or with Roulette Wheel and Elite, in Roulette Wheel you can chose Sigma Fitness Scaling or Linear Fitness Scaling. The modelling capabilities of Smalltalk and the visualization an development capabilities of Squeak were exploited, and priorized in spite of the apparently low performance of both Smalltalk and Squeak.
