Minimac is a minimalist, general purpose text macro processor. Its simplicity should make it particularly well suited as a front end preprocessor for little language compilers. It is meant to be simpler to use than m4. It uses an explicit argument stack, and user functions are defined by concatenation (similar to the Forth language). Macro expansion is delayed to the last possible moment. The software is currently in alpha release.
Booleano is an interpreter of Boolean expressions; a library to define and run filters available as text (e.g. in a natural language) or in Python code. In order to handle text-based filters, Booleano ships with a fully-featured parser whose grammar is adaptive: Its properties can be overridden using simple configuration directives. On the other hand, the library exposes a Pythonic API for filters written in pure Python. These filters are particularly useful to build reusable conditions from objects provided by a third party library.
libcsv_parser++ is a C++ library for parsing text files to extract records and fields. The records can be delimited with any set of characters. It makes the following assumptions: the record terminator is only one character in length; the field terminator is only one character in length; and the fields are enclosed by single characters, if any. The parser can handle documents where fields are always enclosed, not enclosed at all, or optionally enclosed. When fields are strictly all enclosed, there is an assumption that any enclosure characters within the field are escaped by placing a backslash in front of the enclosure character. The software could be ported to Windows with very little effort.
QuHelp is a command-line program that scans a directory with HTML formatted text files and builds a help site using that directory's content and a template. A default template is included, but any template can be specified. QuHelp adds a nice expandable tree view of the help site's contents, a navigator, permalinks, and other useful stuff for browsing the help site.
xMarkup is a command line and GUI utility for multipurpose processing of a set of text files. It can be used to generate or edit the navigational cross-references within a set of HTML documents, analyze and convert the structure or content of SGML, XML, HTML, or text documents, split or merge text files with specified rules, analyze and extract data, generate scripts, and more. xMarkup supports a built-in procedural language which may be used to describe rules of the processing. This language is a simple dialect of the Icon programming language.
jSmaTeP assists in the use of Java for processing import and export data by configuring a data structure rather than by programming it. The structure of the import data is specified in an XML file. jSmaTeP then generates a value object representing exactly one row or record in the import file based on a given XML data configuration. This means that if the import or export format changes, only the XML data configuration needs to be changed to match it.
jbookshelf is an electronic book collection organizer and reader. It supports collecting plain files (text, HTML, PDF, etc.), has basic collection search, fulltext collection search (planned), internal viewers for plain text, HTML, RTF, and PDF, notes and citations, book categories, FB2 support (planned), and portability (removable drives support) (planned).
