Punto is a tool for plotting particles. It reads particle data from a file and displays them in a window in several ways, like dots, circles, squares, and spheres. It can also plot vectorial fields. The output can be in one, two, or three dimensions. It is possible to zoom in and out, rotate in three dimensions, draw periodic images, and more. It can produce animations easily from your data files.
The "Sound of Sorting" is a demo program containing many integer sorting algorithms. The algorithms are visualized in real time and augmented with sound effects, which are based on the values being compared. Animation speed and sound sustain can be customized while the algorithm is running. The visualization also highlights the algorithm's internal workings, which makes the demo program very useful for teaching sorting algorithms in an undergraduate computer science course. The program also counts the number of comparisons done by an algorithm, which can then be compared to the analytically derived value. The demo is implemented using the cross-platform toolkits wxWidgets and SDL, and can be executed on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
