Usepackage is a tool for managing the Unix environment for a multi-tool, multi-platform site. It is designed to simplify login scripts and allow administrators to control users' environments centrally. This tool should be considered primarily designed for sites where users have to deal with a number of different tools, or versions of tools, that are installed in different locations and require environment variables to be set. This is particularly a problem for developers, or anyone who has to manage a large toolset across multiple platforms (e.g. different versions of the Sun JDK which require various environment variables to be set correctly). One or more central configuration files control a number of different "packages" and their associated environment and dependencies for different platforms (this includes the standard PATH, MANPATH, and LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables). A single user command, use, can be invoked to source the appropriate environment information into the users' current shell.
nefu (network fidelity utility) is a Unix daemon that monitors services over the network. It uses a "no false alarms" fault verification algorithm, and understands network dependancies. Natively-monitored protocols include ICMP echo (ping), SSH, IPP, DNS, HTTP, POP, NTP, IMAP, SMTP, and LDAP, as well as having facilities to execute external programs. Status pages are available via finger or the Web.
PDC is a desktop calculator in the 'bc' style with features designed for programmers. It does not support floating point math, but does provide all the C operators (logical, bitwise, shifts, etc.) and implements ISO C operator precedence. Additionally, functions are available to assist with 'bit bashing' tasks such as byte swapping and bit scanning.
Alliance CAD System is a set of EDA tools and portable cell libraries for VLSI design. It covers a wide range of the standard design flow (from VHDL up to layout). It includes a VHDL simulator, RTL synthesis tools, place and route tools, netlist extractor, DRC, and a layout editor.
The Heirloom Development Tools provide yacc, lex, m4, make, and SCCS as portable derivatives of the utilities released by Sun as part of OpenSolaris. The OpenSolaris utilities were in turn derived from the original Unix versions, and are assumed be conforming implementations of the POSIX standard.
Hoc, the High Order Calculator, is an interpreted language for floating-point calculations. Its most basic use is as a powerful and convenient calculator, interactively evaluating expressions such as 1+2*sin(0.7). But hoc is no ordinary calculator: It also lets you assign values to variables, define your own functions, and use loops, conditionals, and everything else you'd expect in a programming language.
dwarf-ng is a small and powerful object file manipulator. With dwarf-ng, you can read, edit, and manipulate section headers, inject code or data, and create new section headers of object files. Currently, it handles object files in the PE, Mach-O, and ELF formats. For the moment, dwarf-ng only has a command-line interface. dwarf-ng is fully scriptable (as it has a scripting language), and is flexibly configurable.
Hormiga is a language designed to be simple and powerful, allowing users without software programming knowledge to make the programs needed to automate the calculations of everyday problems. Generally, it is necessary only for the users to be aware of the problem they want to solve. The language allows programmers to focus on the problem and not to worry about the interactive interface with the user. The programmer will have to state the instructions to solve a problem, in the same way they would do manually. The steps may depend one upon the other. Like most languages, Hormiga has support for functions and the possibility of creating libraries of commonly used code. Unlike most languages, Hormiga automatically and dynamically creates the graphical user interface (GUI) for programs, has support for calculating definite integrals in multiple dimensions, and incorporates a new concept called Step, similar to a procedure of Pascal, but allowing you to state dependences between them.
