PropXX provides a property/configuration mechanism for C++ applications. Properties can be defined in files similar to but more flexible than Java properties. Property files are defined in a type-safe, modular way and offer the full expressiveness of the Lua scripting language. The design of PropXX combines flexibility with high performance for the C++ code that accesses property values. The property values are stored in objects of special property classes, which are automatically generated from the property set definitions. Performance-critical code can be inlined by the compiler, and a typical access to a property value is as cheap as reading a single variable from the memory. No costly data structures like hashes, balanced trees, etc. are involved.
Parallel Performance Wizard (PPW) is a performance analysis tool designed for UPC, MPI, and SHMEM programs. It features an easy-to-use interface and tight integration with GAS programming models via the GASP interface. It is known to work on many platforms. This project is part of a study of existing and emerging performance analysis theory and tools, current and future HPC architectures, and usability and user productivity preferences and methods, along with various programming models.
Tioga is a Ruby library for creating figures and plots with high quality text and graphics in PDF format. Text is processed directly by TeX (not an emulation), and the graphics covers a broad range of PDF features including images, curves, clipping, and transparency. Tioga is relatively easy to use, complete, and well documented.
Template Manager, also known as "Tm", is a preprocessor that takes a code template and some data structure definitions, and generates source code for an arbitrary programming language. Thus, Tm lets you have templates in any programming language. The kernel distribution package of Tm contains extensive C templates and a support library that have been tested and used extensively over the past decade. There are also Pascal and Miranda templates.
(Serial Ports on) Steroids enables users to execute remote C functions in a Python shell over a serial interface. It is useful for embedded system testing and industrial automation. It generates C code for the target and a Python script for the host automatically from a C header file.
