GNU TeXmacs is a free wysiwyw (what you see is what you want) editing platform with special features for scientists. The software aims to provide a unified and user friendly framework for editing structured documents with different types of content: text, mathematics, graphics, interactive content. TeXmacs can also be used as an interface to many external systems for computer algebra, numerical analysis, and statistics. New presentation styles can be written by the user and new features can be added to the editor using Scheme.
FramerD is a semi-structured object database integrated with a Scheme-based scripting language which supports multi-lingual programming (with pervasive Unicode), a stable module system for programming in the large, distributed applications (via an extensible RPC protocol), non-deterministic (PROLOG-like) evaluation for search and set operations, multi-threaded program execution, extensive tools for text and language analysis, built-in HTML/XML/MIME parsers, and intuitive (CGI- and FastCGI-based) Web scripting. The built-in object database robustly supports millions of objects and indexed access to those objects, both through disk files and networked servers.
