Armadillo is a C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths) aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. Integer, floating point, and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS libraries. A delayed evaluation approach, based on template meta-programming, is used (during compile time) to combine several operations into one and reduce or eliminate the need for temporaries.
For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.
LavaPE is a programming environment for the experimental object-oriented programming language Lava. It replaces text editing with structure editing, thereby preventing all syntactic and many semantic errors. The pure point-and-click nature of Lava programming and the concise representation of programs as declaration trees with small chunks of executable code simplify programming, and ease comprehension.
The STX B+ Tree package is a set of C++ template classes implementing a B+ tree key/data container in main memory. The classes are designed as drop-in replacements of the STL containers set, map, multiset, and multimap, and follow their interfaces very closely. By packing multiple value pairs into each node of the tree, the B+ tree reduces heap fragmentation and utilizes cache-line effects better than the standard red-black binary tree. The tree algorithms are based on the implementation in Cormen, Leiserson, and Rivest's Introduction into Algorithms, Jan Jannink's paper, and other algorithm resources. The classes contain extensive assertion and verification mechanisms to ensure the implementation's correctness by testing the tree invariants.
Unifdef is useful for removing #ifdef'ed lines from a file while otherwise leaving the file alone. You specify which symbols are defined or undefined with -D and -U flags, and unifdef removes the corresponding ifdefs, and the enclosed code if appropriate. It's especially useful for removing those "#ifdef BROKEN" and "#ifdef PRIVATE" clauses from code before you release it. Unifdef acts on #if, #ifdef, #ifndef, #elif, #else, and #endif lines, and it knows only enough about C and C++ to know when one of these is inactive because it is inside a comment or a single or double quote.
The Open Service Availability Framework (OpenSAF) is designed to work in a loosely coupled computer system with fast interconnections between the nodes. An application using OpenSAF could provide “five nines” (99.999 %) availability without re-inventing availability techniques. It provides mechanisms to replicate data between nodes, so that in case of failure the services can be started on a different node with the same state. It monitors itself for hardware and software failures, can keep several service instances running (with different availability models), and can automatically restart and migrate services to satisfy the availability requirements. It is based on the standard defined at saforum.org. It includes an availability management framework, a message service, a lock service, an event service, a checkpoint service, and much more.
