Boxes is a text filter that can draw any kind of box around its input text. Box design choices range from simple boxes to complex ASCII art. A box can also be removed and repaired, even if it has been badly damaged by editing of the text inside. Since the generated boxes may be open on any side, the program can also be used to create regional comments in any programming language. New box designs of all sorts can easily be added and shared by appending to a free format configuration file. In addition to being a command line tool, Boxes integrates well with any text editor that supports filters.
JReferences is a program written in Java for managing bibliographic references in the BibTeXML format. Storage is done in a binary file database or, optionally, in a MySQL database. A PHP Web frontend is available. It can input BibTex, RIS, BibTeXML, and DocBook formated references.
gtex-letter attempts to deliver an easy alternative interface to LaTeX-letter. It is heavily configurable, and it supports multiple letter headers and default letter openings (which are configurable in the rc-file). Users can choose from three different levels of graphical interface complexity. Novice is easy to understand, while expert is straight-forward. There is also a non-interactive mode that makes production of standard-letters very fast. gtex-letter is implemented in Python and based on GNOME.
Change is a non-interactive text editor, similar to sed, but much easier to use. It works by substituting a specified target pattern in the source text with another specified text pattern. It can operate on multiple files specified on the command line, or it can operate upon stdin/stdout in filter mode.
openadaptor is a Java/XML-based software platform which allows for rapid business system integration with little or no custom programming. openadaptor can be loosely classified as EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) software. It is highly extensible and provides many ready-built interface components for JMS, Oracle, Sybase, and TIBCO, as well as data exchange formats such as XML.
