The Archive::Zip module allows a Perl program to create, manipulate, read, and write Zip archive files without calling an external program. Members can be added, removed, extracted, replaced, rearranged, and enumerated. They can also be renamed or have their dates, comments, or other attributes queried or modified. Their data can be compressed or uncompressed as needed, and members can be created from members in existing Zip files, or from existing directories, files, or strings.
ArgoUML is a pure Java open source UML CASE tool that provides cognitive support for object-oriented design. ArgoUML provides some of the same editing and code generation features of a commercial CASE tool, but it focuses on features that enhance usability and support the cognitive needs of designers. Uses XML file formats: XMI and PGML.
Ariadne is a Web Application Framework and Content Management System built with PHP. It allows you to build complex Web applications and sites with ease. It takes care of the mundane stuff like internationalization, security, user management, templating, data retrieval and storage, caching, and site management. It stores content in a structured object store that can be accessed through an extensive filesystem-like API.
AsciiArtWidget creates and handles a widget with bindings appropriate for easy creation of ascii art.

Includes a mouse drag painting binding, and block sleection/delete, as well as a data loading and squaring system.
asmutils is a set of miscellaneous utilities written in assembly language, targeted on embedded systems and small distributions (e.g. installation or rescue disks). It also contains a small libc and a crypto library. It is optimized for size, memory usage, and speed, and offers fairly good functionality. The project supports Linux and the BSD family. Unixware, Solaris, and AtheOS support is in beta stage. This package also aims to provide a portable development framework, and to encourage assembly programmers to write for Linux/Unix.
The AST package includes KornShell, nmake, and Unix programming libraries such as vmalloc and sfio. The software was created over more than 15 years in the Advanced Software Technology dept. of AT&T Labs Research (formerly in Bell Labs, Murray Hill). It is aimed at supporting the creation and maintenance of scalable, efficient software under Unix. The AST environment was also ported to Windows NT in Dave Korn's UWIN system.
