GNU Aspell is a spell checker designed to eventually replace Ispell. It can either be used as a library or as an independent spell checker. Its main feature is that it does a superior job of suggesting possible replacements for a misspelled word than just about any other spell checker out there for the English language. Unlike Ispell, Aspell can also easily check documents in UTF-8 without having to use a special dictionary. Aspell will also do its best to respect the current locale setting. Other advantages over Ispell include support for using multiple dictionaries at once and intelligently handling personal dictionaries when more than one Aspell process is open at once.
Net::Z3950::SimpleServer is a Perl module which implements the server side of the Z39.50 (information retrieval) protocol. It hides the complexity of network exchanges, packet serialization, and session handling. You are required only to implement simple callbacks to support searching and record retrieval. It is the basis of the "Zoogle" project, which is a Z39.50 gateway to the Google web index.

Schroedinger is the combination of Apache Tomcat with a nice, clean Swing GUI. It provides an easy way to create and test JSP and Servlet Web applications. It records every JSP/HTTP activity so that every possible bug can be corrected immediately. Schroedinger can be used in personal mode, which prevents others from using its JSP Server while you develop the application. Alternatively, Schroedinger's working directory can be opened via file-sharing, so that a JSP can be copied to any computer of the JSP development team.
xMarkup is a command line and GUI utility for multipurpose processing of a set of text files.
