yagg, given YACC-like and LEX-like input files, generates a C++ program that generates all strings of a user-specified length. This program can then be used to generate inputs for testing, or to validate that a grammar accepts the strings that you think it does. The grammar file provides the grammar productions for string generation, along with optional action blocks that can perform context-sensitive checks in order to limit the generated strings. The LEX-like terminal generator file provides specifications that instruct the program how to generate strings for terminals in the grammar.
yaktest is a simple C++ unit testing framework. It has its roots in the JUnit testing framework for Java, but is implemented in a much simpler fashion. Additionally, its output is Emacs-compatible, so adding a "test" target in a makefile makes for fairly simple automated unit testing, with failures directed to the offending line number. An example is included in the source and .gz distributables.
YakTrack is a simple but reasonably effective issue-tracking system written in Python using the current XML libraries. It uses simple XML DTDs to define issue formats, and stores each issue as a separate XML file, making for a very simple database structure. A command-line interface is available which either generates a series of textual prompts or shells out to an external editor to edit or submit new issues, query the database, etc. An email gateway and a CGI interface are also available.
Yappy provides a lexical analyser and a LR parser generator for Python applications. Currently it builds SLR, LR(1), and LALR(1) parsing tables. Tables are kept in Python shelves for use in parsing. Some ambiguous grammars can be handled if priority and associativity information is provided.
The yawiki engine is the underlying rendering engine of the yawiki application. It is a standalone rendering engine to convert wiki markup into HTML. It can be included in any application. So far it covers three different markups: BBCode, the old yawiki markup, and the Creole 1.0 specification.
This is a comprehensive "word game" word list for UNIX/Linux. It is a superset of the author's ENABLE list, the "OSW", and various lists researched by the author's colleague, Alan Beale. At 264,093 words, it is the largest list of its kind, suitable for use in all manners of crossword-type board games and word construction games, as well as for a spell checker dictionary. The YAWL package now includes two anagramming utilities (supplied as source code, handled by the included Makefile). There is also a shell script that extends the UNIX "strings" system command. This is the word list package recommended for the author's Quackey word game.
