The Glasgow Haskell Compiler is a robust, fully-featured, optimising compiler for the functional programming language Haskell. GHC compiles Haskell to either native code or C. It implements numerous experimental language extensions to Haskell for example concurrency, a foreign language interface, several type-system extensions, exceptions, and so on. GHC comes with a generational garbage collector, a space and time profiler, and a comprehensive set of libraries.
sml/nj (Standard ML of New Jersey) consists of a compiler, compilation manager, and libraries for Standard ML. Included are CML (Concurrent ML) and eXene (a toolkit for X based on CML). The compiler produces efficient code for most popular architectures (Intel x86, Sparc, Alpha, Mips, HP-PA, PowerPC) and runs under Unix, Linux, or Windows (95,98,NT).
XSD is a W3C XML Schema to C++ translator. Provided with an XML instance specification (XML Schema), it generates C++ classes that represent the given vocabulary as well as parsing and serialization code. You can then access the data stored in XML using types and functions that semantically correspond to your application domain rather than dealing with elements, attributes, and text in a direct representation of XML such as DOM or SAX. XSD features support for in-memory and stream-oriented processing models, comprehensive XML Schema feature coverage, easy integration, and more.
Chicken is a Scheme compiler that translates most of R5RS Scheme into relatively portable C. It supports fully general tail-call recursion, first-class continuations, and has a very flexible and efficient interface to C and C++. Chicken implements several extensions to the Scheme language: lightweight threads, pattern matching macros, dynamic loading of compiled code, and various object-oriented paradigms, such as TinyCLOS, and others. The library system includes hundreds of convenient modules for practical use.
The Tcl Dev Kit (TDK) provides essential tools for Tcl programmers, making it easy to create, build, and deploy applications. You can rapidly deploy Tcl applications to a broad range of platforms as ready-to-run executables, starkits, or starpacks. Development is simplified with tools for finding and fixing bugs, managing complex code bases, and optimizing your programs. Take control and work the way you want with a choice of GUIs or command line interfaces for most tools.
EAsea Specification of Evolutionary Algorithms (EASEA), is a high-level language dedicated to the specification of evolutionary algorithms. The language and compiler are quite mature. EASEA compiles .ez specification files into C++ or Java object files, using existing evolutionary libraries. Supported C++ libraries currently are GALib or EO.
Oberon2 is a simple and safe object-oriented language created by N.Wirth, the author of Pascal and Modula2. It is statically strongly typed and has garbage collection. Most of good ideas incorporated in design of Java were in Oberon2 long before. OOC is an open source project to produce a family of optimizing Oberon2 compilers. The compiler with an ANSI C back-end, oo2c, is quite mature, and provides a complete and convenient Oberon2 development environment. It comes with a rather comprehensive standard library, Code Navigator, and an Emacs mode. It is easy to call C functions and libraries from Oberon2.
The Perl Dev Kit (PDK) provides essential tools for building and deploying Perl applications. PDK features cross-platform wrapping and application builders for various operating systems, plus a suite of tools to speed development time and improve code quality and consistency across teams.
GODI provides an advanced programming environment for the Objective Caml (O'Caml) language. From INRIA (who created O'Caml) you can get the O'Caml compiler and runtime system, but this is usually not enough to develop applications. You also need libraries, and there are many developers providing them. But it is a lot of work to build and install them. GODI is a system that simplifies this task: It is a framework that automatically builds the O'Caml core system, and additionally installs a growing number of pre-packaged libraries. For a number of reasons, GODI is a source-code based system, and there are no precompiled libraries, but it makes it very simple for everybody to compile them.
BMDFM allows one to run an application in parallel on shared memory multiprocessor (SMP) systems. BMDFM automatically identifies and executes all parallelism of unparallelized programs due to the static and mainly dynamic scheduling of the data flow instruction sequences derived from the formerly sequential program. BMDFM's dynamic scheduling subsystem performs an efficient SMP emulation of Tagged-Token DFM to provide the transparent dataflow semantics for the applications. No directives for parallel execution are required. No highly knowledgeable parallel programmers are required.
