Pexpect is a Python Expect-like module. It spawns child applications, controls them, and responds to expected patterns in their output. It can be used for automating interactive applications such as ssh, ftp, passwd, telnet, etc. It can be used to automate setup scripts for duplicating software package installations on different servers. It can be used for automated software testing. It should work on any platform that supports the standard Python pty module. Its interface was designed to be easy-to-use, so performing simple tasks is easy. It includes an ANSI/VT100 terminal screen scraping module.
Kodos is a regular expression designer, tester, debugger, and validator that allows a developer to create and modify regular expressions against a test string. The intuitive interface allows the developer the ability to modify the regular expression (regex) and to see the effects against their test string in real-time.
Fresh Memory is an application that helps you to learn large amounts of any material with Spaced Repetition method. The most important subject is learning foreign words, but Fresh Memory can also e used to learn anything else. Other examples are country's capitals and flags, chemical elements, mathematical formulas, and technical terms. The learning data is stored as flash cards and dictionaries: sets of cards. The flash cards may have several fields, and the user controls what combination of fields to learn. The flash cards can have formatted text and images. The look of flash cards and studying parameters are can be flexibly adjusted.
Kanatest is a Japanese kana (hiragana and katakana) simple flashcard tool. It offers fourteen lessons and three drill modes: hiragana, katakana, and mixed mode. The tool displays randomly selected kana characters (respecting mode and lesson) and waits for the user answer (expected as the romaji equivalent). This process continues until all questions are answered or all questions are answered correctly (depending on options). At the end of test, information about drilling time and correctness ratio is displayed. The results are stored, and a user can review his performance at any time.
Daikon is an implementation of dynamic detection of likely invariants. An invariant is a property (such as "x=2*y+5" or "this.next.prev = this" or "myarray is sorted by <") that holds at a certain point or points in a program. Invariants are often seen in assert statements, documentation, and formal specifications. Invariants can be useful in program understanding and a host of other applications. Daikon runs a program, observes the values that the program computes, and then reports properties that were true over the observed executions. It can detect properties in Java, C, C++, Perl, and IOA programs, in spreadsheet files, and in other data sources.
alph implements and analyzes historical and traditional ciphers and codes, such as polyalphabetic, substitutional, and mixed employing human-reconstructable algorithms. It provides a pipe filter interface in order to encrypt and decrypt block text to achieve transparency. The program is meant to be used in conjunction with external programs that transfer data, resulting in transparent encryption or decryption of information. The program can thus be used as a mail filter, IRC filter, IM filter, and so on.
