PolyGen is a program for generating random sentences according to a grammar definition, that is following custom syntactical and lexical rules. Formally, it is an interpreter of a language itself designed to define languages, where to interpret means executing a source program in real time and eventually outputting its result. Here, a source program is a grammar definition. The execution consists of the exploration of such grammar by selecting a random path, and the result is the sentence built on the way.
MLdonkey is a multi-platform, multi-network peer-to-peer client. It supports several large networks such as eDonkey, Overnet, Kademlia, Bittorrent, Gnutella (Bearshare, Limewire, etc.), Gnutella2 (Shareaza), or Fasttrack (Kazaa, Imesh, Grobster). Networks can be enabled or disabled. Searches are performed in parallel on all enabled networks. For some networks, each file can be downloaded from multiple clients concurrently.
SRESI is a smart bookmark manager. It currently sports both a command-line and a PHP interface. It works with both the standard hierarchical trees and the new and fashionable tagged bookmarks. It was developed as a way to interface both representation systems. SRESI can use Del.icio.us, Mozilla, Opera, and XBEL bookmarks, and handles a few more exports besides. Directories and tags are used equivalently, and the final hierarchies are inferred from actual tag use.
OMake is a build system and scripting language with a similar style and syntax to GNU make but with many additional features, including support for large projects spanning multiple directories, default configuration files simplifying the standard compilation tasks, fast, reliable, automated, scriptable dependency analysis using MD5 digests, built-in support for defining and running autoconfiguration tests, portability, and built-in functions that provide the most common features of programs like grep, sed, and awk. It also provides active filesystem monitoring that restarts builds automatically when source files are modified. A companion command interpreter that can be used interactively is included.
Planets is a fun, interactive program for many-body gravity simulations. The emphasis is on play: it's easy to add in planets, zoom in and out, change the physical constants, save and load configurations, etc. It's designed to be easy enough for a kid to enjoy, but that hardly precludes adults.
demexp is a client/server system for direct democracies. It makes it possible to ask questions in the system, add new answers to those questions, and vote on proposed answers. The voting procedure used is Condorcet voting. Questions are classified, and a delegation system allows one's vote for certain questions to be assigned to a chosen delegate. The software is tailored to the needs of the Democratic Experience project.
Ocaml Plugin extends the NetBeans IDE with support for projects written in the Objective Caml language. It provides syntax highlighting, code completion, build-in documentation, support for OCaml projects with multiple source, test, and docs folders, support for multiple build systems, a sample project template, and an empty project wizard.
NVM Virtual Machine is a small, fast, extensible and portable virtual machine. It can be used, for example, as a scripting engine in microcontrollers. It can be configured to work in a few modes (with a machine word equal to 16, 32, or 64 bits) depending on user needs. Programming is done using an ASM-like language or a (simple) higher level language which is implemented using ocamllex and ocamlyacc.
