cdrtools (formerly cdrecord) creates home-burned CDs/DVDs with a CDR/CDRW/DVD/BluRay recorder. It works as a burn engine for several applications. It supports CD/DVD/BD recorders from many different vendors; all SCSI-3/mmc- and ATAPI/mmc-compliant drives should also work. Supported features include IDE/ATAPI, parallel port, and SCSI drives; audio CDs, data CDs, and mixed CDs; full multi-session support; CD-RWs, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, BD-R/BD-RE; and TAO, DAO, RAW, and human-readable error messages. cdrtools includes remote SCSI support and can access local or remote CD/DVD/BD writers.
Ghostscript is a processor for PostScript and PDF files. It can rasterize these files to a wide variety of printers, devices for screen preview, and image file formats. Since applications tend to prepare pages for printing in a high-level format such as PostScript, most Unix users with low-level bitmap printers, such as inkjets, use GhostScript as part of the printing process. In addition, Ghostscript is capable of converting PostScript files, functionality comparable to Adobe Acrobat Distiller, but on the command line. In addition, Ghostscript is used for file import and viewing by a great many other applications, including xv, ImageMagick, gimp, and xdvi. Several GUI wrappers for viewing PostScript and PDF files exist, including GSview, ghostview, gv, ggv, and kghostview. This is far from a comprehensive list.
GNU Wget is a utility for noninteractive download of files from the Web. It supports HTTP and FTP protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP proxies. It can follow HTML links, download many pages, and convert the links for local viewing. It can also mirror FTP hierarchies or only those files that have changed. Wget has been designed for robustness over slow network connections; if a download fails due to a network problem, it will keep retrying until the whole file has been retrieved.
CodeBase is a high-speed xBASE compatible database engine for C/C++, Visual Basic, Delphi & Java programmers. You can use CodeBase to write high performance database applications that are multi-user compatible with FoxPro, dBASE and Clipper, create anything from a Java applet to a full-blown Windows database application to a simple DOS utility, write scalable applications that can be deployed as single-user, multi-user or client/server, all without changing any of your source code, and port your applications to Windows, DOS, UNIX, OS/2, and Macintosh. There's a free 30-Day Test Drive option available. CodeBase is available for every major operating system including Windows XP, 2000, 9x, NT, CE, DOS, OS/2, Macintosh, and a variety of Linux and UNIX platforms including Solaris, SunOS, HP/UX, AIX, SCO, and others.
The Extended Universal Resource Locator library provides a complete virtualization of file-like objects. How data is stored is completely transparent to the client, since the library is meant to replace java.io.File. It provides implementations for handling local files, Jar/Zip archives, and XML documents. (Implementations for CVS and FTP are available seperately.) Other storage providers can be written and plugged in. It also provides a merged filesystem implementation that allows multiple hierarchies to appear as one and to override each other in a controlled way. Other features include notification of changes to files, and support for attaching (dynamically updatable) actions to file objects.
The c-tree Plus embedded database engine offers developers several APIs that provide low-level routines, ISAM-level control, and higher-level interfaces. c-tree Plus is distributed in complete C source, has been ported to 100+ environments and includes a robust database Server SDK. It can be used to develop single user and peer-to-peer applications, or the client-side for applications using FairCom's database server, the c-tree Server.
The c-tree Server is FairCom's multi-threaded, low-maintenance database server. It supports heterogeneous networks and lets dissimilar clients attach concurrently to any single or combination of c-tree Servers. Portability is afforded through over 30 supported platforms and 5+ supported communication protocols. c-tree Servers are easy to set up and require no system tuning or DBA. Additionally, FairCom offers a Server Side Development System, allowing developers to build their own application-specific database server.
Secure FTP API for Java is a collection of classes that allows you to add secure file transfer capabilities to your Java applications. It has a complete implementation of the File Transfer Protocol as defined RFC 959, and support for secure file transfer using SSL/TLS as defined in RFC 2228. Both explicit and implicit SSL connections are supported. It has an extendable architecture to support legacy/non-standard FTP servers, event notification to notify the connection and transfer events to interested objects, support for active and passive data transfers, support for ASCII and binary data types, and the ability to set the timeouts and buffer size to use for the control and data connections.
libmikmod is a portable sound library, which used to be packaged with the MikMod module player, but is now released independently. It is capable of playing samples as well as module files, using the OSS driver for output, as well as ALSA and EsounD. Supported module formats include MOD, S3M, XM, IT, MED, MTM, and 669, to name a few.
