The ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software) project is an ongoing research effort focusing on applying empirical techniques in order to provide portable performance. It provides C and Fortran77 interfaces to a portably efficient BLAS implementation, as well as a few routines from LAPACK.
GeoToad is a geocaching query tool to help speed up the boring part of geocaching: choosing the cache and collecting the data. It allows you to generate any kind of complex query you want, and the program will go and poll the Geocaching query, grab the data, and output it to any format you want. The Geocache info can be synced straight to your GPS, iPod, PDA, or cell phone in over 20 different formats.
Extended Tcl (TclX) is an extension to Tcl, the Tool Command Language invented by Dr. John Ousterhout. Tcl is a simple and powerful embeddable programming language. Extended Tcl is oriented toward system programming tasks and large application development. TclX provides additional interfaces to the operating system. It also adds many new programming constructs, text manipulation tools, and debugging tools.
Caudex is a distributed document/reference management system. Its features include support for BibTeX reference types, reference organization in hierarchical categories, BibTeX export, multiple attachments (eg PDF files) for each reference and a servlet-based Web interface with full-text search on the PDF attachments. It is optimized for offline work, and local reference collections can be synced with servers at any time. Multiple local storages are supported and can optionally be synced against different servers.
MiGLayout is a versatile and flexible Swing and SWT layout manager. It uses string constraints or API type-checked constraints to format the layout. Strings are both short to type and easy to understand. MiGLayout can produce flowing, grid-based, absolute (with links), grouped, and docking layouts. It was created to be to manually coded layouts what Matisse/GroupLayout is to IDE-supported visual layouts.
CFITSIO is a library of C and Fortran subroutines for reading and writing data files in the FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) data format. It simplifies the task of writing software that deals with FITS files by providing an easy to use set of high-level routines that insulate the programmer from the internal complexities of the FITS file format.
Tcl provides a portable scripting environment for Unix, Windows, and Macintosh that supports string processing and pattern matching, native file system access, shell-like control over other programs, TCP/IP networking, timers, and event-driven I/O. Tcl has traditional programming constructs like variables, loops, procedures, namespaces, error handling, script packages, and dynamic loading of DLLs. Tk provides portable GUIs on UNIX, Windows, and Macintosh. A powerful widget set and the concise scripting interface to Tk make it a breeze to develop sophisticated user interfaces.
Zsh is a UNIX command interpreter (shell) which of the standard shells most resembles the Korn shell (ksh). It includes enhancements of many types, notably in the command-line editor, options for customising its behaviour, filename globbing, features to make C-shell (csh) users feel more at home and extra features drawn from tcsh.
