Parse Direct User Access Terminal mitigates information overload from aviation weather brief downloads. The USA Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Direct User Access Terminal (DUAT) standard, outlook, and abbreviated weather brief are broken into a hierarchy of files. Each file contains one METAR/NOTAM/PIREP/TAF/etc. Options allow input of HTML source or text, output of HTML or text, and a flat directory or multi-level directory. As separate files, NOTAMS/etc. scripts can quickly identify changed information, or prioritize for relevance. Parsing is lossless and the complete original text can be reconstructed using cpp(1).
MpFot allows you to create MetaPost files from images in JPEG or GIF format. It uses Java2 and can optionally process the images before rendering to MetaPost files. MpFot can currently modify brilliance, color balance, and saturation, and it can also perform posterization, inversion of colors, and manual cropping. All the changes can be compared with the original image through a courtain-like facility.
DataReel is a free, cross-platform database and communications toolkit. It can be used to rapidly develop and deploy multi-threaded database and communications applications. The DataReel toolkit is composed of a modular C++ library designed to build cross-platform infrastructures for end-user applications, embedded systems, and reusable libraries. DataReel's unique modular design simplifies adaptation, allowing you to determine the level of complexity. DataReel makes Internet connectivity and database programming easy.
s3d is an XML schema for 3d scenes, objects, and so forth (intended primarily but not exclusively for computer games). The problem is that often as a games developer you need to work with many 3d editing tools and rendering engines, and there should be an easy and portable way to move objects, levels, etc. around. By having a common intermediate file format, you only need to write one exporter per tool and one importer per graphics engine. Also, you can develop generic tools which are not tied to any particular engine.
dlh is a fast LaTeX-to-HTML translator written in C that can handle most of LaTeX. It features not invoking LaTeX for any purpose; with the exception of figure support it's completely independent of any other program. In particular, it generates all cross-references and table of contents in a single run Tables are supported and translated into HTML3 tables, and PostScript figures (\psfig command) are supported (requires GhostScript and pnmtogif to translate PS into GIF files).
Permission Record Information Machine (PRIM) delivers database connectivity via a web browser. Users can have different database permissions (e.g. create tables, modify tables, etc.). PRIM has built-in database analytical tools such as graph displays, reporting, etc. English and Chinese (Big5) language support.
