GNU units converts quantities expressed in various systems of measurement to their equivalents in other systems of measurement. Like many similar programs, it can handle multiplicative scale changes. It can also handle nonlinear conversions such as Fahrenheit to Celsius, and it can perform conversions from and to sums of units, such as converting between feet plus inches and meters. Beyond simple unit conversions, units can be used as a general-purpose scientific calculator which keeps track of units in its calculations. You can form arbitrary complex mathematical expressions of dimensions including sums, products, quotients, powers, and even roots of dimensions. In this way, you can ensure accuracy and dimensional consistency when working with long expressions which involve many different units which may combine in complex ways. The units are defined in an extensive, well-annotated data file which defines over 2,500 units. You can also provide your own file to supplement or replace the standard file.
The Alamin GSM SMS Gateway is a group of daemons that allows you to send/receive SMS messages from any GSM device that supports AT+ commands (GSM modems or GSM mobile phones) or supported by Gnokii. A client program allows you to send messages from any IP client. An SMTP interface is provided to allow MTAs to send SMS directly to the GSM network. IMP (Incoming Message Processor) modules allows you to extend functionality to implement banking, network administration, bd querys, etc. from a GSM mobile phone.
Engauge Digitizer is digitizing software that converts an image showing a graph or map into numbers. The image file can come from a scanner, digital camera, or screenshot. The numbers can be read on the screen, and written or copied to a spreadsheet. Highlights for beginners include an intuitive interface and extensive context-sensitive documentation. Highlights for experts include compensation for image distortion, cartesian and polar coordinates, linear and logarithmic coordinates, automatic scanning, graphical previews, and browser help.
WinDriver automates and simplifies the development of user-mode Linux device drivers for PCI, CardBus, ISA, PMC, PCI-X, PCI-EXPRESS, and CompactPCI as well as USB 1.1/2.0. No internal OS knowledge or kernel level programming is required. It supports kernel 2.0.31 and above, including embedded Linux, x86 and PowerPC processors, and any 32-bit development environment supporting C or Delphi. Applications are source code compatible across Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/XP Embedded/Server 2003/CE, Linux, Solaris, and VxWorks.
PBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses pthreads and achieves near-linear speedup on SMP machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 1.0.2 or newer (ie: anything compressed with PBZIP2 can be decompressed with bzip2).
The cb2Bib is a tool for rapidly extracting bibliographic references from email alerts, journal Web pages, and PDF files. It facilitates the capture of single references from unformatted and non standard sources. Output references are written in BibTeX. Article files can be easily linked and renamed by dragging them onto the cb2Bib window. Additionally, it permits editing and browsing BibTeX files, citing references, searching references and the full contents of the referenced documents, inserting bibliographic metadata to documents, and writing short notes that interrelate several references.
GPSBabel converts waypoint data between about fifty file formats, including Magellan and Garmin serial, Garmin USB, Mapsource, Mapsend, Streets & Trips, Delorme, National Geographic, many PDA formats, and many others. It is endian and word-size safe, includes a GUI, and runs on a variety of operating systems. It also supports Groundspeak GPX extensions for geocaching.
MQ4CPP, or "Message Queuing for C++", is an implementation of an enterprise messaging system, also referred to as message-oriented middleware (MOM). It enables C++ application threads to communicate with other threads locally or remotely through the exchange of messages. A message is a request, report, and/or event that contains information needed to coordinate communication between different applications. MQ4CPP implements direct/indirect messaging, unsolicited messaging, request/reply, conversation, publish/subscribe, store & forward, and broadcast. It supports multithreading, application clustering (failover and session replication), and encryption. MQ4CPP also includes a distributed lock manager, a file transfer manager, and a distributed memory channel.
