tn5250 is a 5250 terminal emulator, used for connecting to IBM's AS/400 (now known as eServer iSeries) midrange computers. tn5250 implements TN5250E, which means it is capable of device name selection, and printer sessions. The emulator supports color, 132 column mode, and most other features found in 5250 terminals and Client Access' 5250 emulator. While tn5250 is text-based application, a script is included to run it in an xterm properly. If you don't know what an AS/400 is, this program will probably not be of much use to you.
WAWAS is a full PHP application server. The main server core listens to any IP/port and passes data to any mounted protocol on the listener. Implemented protocols are HTTP1.1/1.0, Comet, Telnet, DNS, mail, and FTP. Each protocol runs modules that build response data based on the requests. Memory object persistence allows data and caches to be shared across protocols or time. All configuration uses XML. It can be launched as a daemon, with or without forked workers, and is nearly as fast as Apache in preliminary tests.
