The Easysoft ODBC-Access Driver is an ODBC driver that supports both the MDB (Access 2000–2003 and Office Access 2007) and ACCDB (Office Access 2007 and later) database formats. It provides read-write access to Access databases for Linux/Unix applications. You do not need to change where your database file is located, as it supports shared locations such as a Windows or Samba share. It uses Access’ locking file mechanism and prevents users from opening a database if another user has the database opened for exclusive access, again mirroring the Access front-end’s behavior for seamless integration. It supports encrypted/encoded .mdb files, which is an Access security feature that protects Access data from unauthorized viewing.
Charm++ is a portable adaptive runtime system for parallel applications. Application developers create an object-based decomposition of the problem of interest, and the runtime system manages issues of communication, mapping, load balancing, fault tolerance, and more. Sequential code implementing the methods of these parallel objects is written in C++. Calls to libraries in C++, C, and Fortran are common and straightforward. Charm++ is portable across individual workstations, clusters, accelerators (Cell SPEs and GPUs), and supercomputers such as those sold by IBM (Blue Gene, POWER) and Cray (XT3/4/5/6). Applications based on Charm++ are used on at least 5 of the 20 most powerful computers in the world.
Deduplicator is a simple and efficient data deduplicator that works by hard linking files that have the same content. It is ideal for reducing the size of backups. It can save and restore intermediate results, so you can run it in a few short intervals, and allows you to review changes before they are committed to disk.
Speedpad is a small and portable ncurses-powered tool to test, train, and increase typing speed on arbitrary text input. It is designed for intermediate-to-advanced level typists and assumes that you have already learned how to touch type. It does not use lessons, single words, or other synthetic stuff. It supports tab expansion, auto indentation, and syntax to train on code. It features a reference speed robot and supports CPS, CPM, WPM, PPM, and CPH/KPH metrics. It shows detailed statistics about speed and helps find and eliminate frequent typos. Stats are dumped to standard output in a machine-readable format after completion, and can be piped into gnuplot.
