BRL-CAD is a powerful constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing support for rendering and geometric analysis, path-tracing for realistic image synthesis, network distributed framebuffer support, and image and signal-processing tools.
The Simple Sockets Library makes sockets easy to use and comes as public domain source code. It resembles C's file I/O, uses whatever port is available, has named servers and port reuse, streaming/blocking sockets used, polling support, blocking/selection support via numerous functions, timeout control and firewall support.
freeglut is intended to be a 100% plug-compatible clone, and is released under the Xfree license. The GLUT (OpenGL Utility Toolkit) is a widely used library for doing window control, keyboard, and mouse input, and other basic functions for OpenGL programs. However, GLUT is not OpenSourced - although it's source code is available under a somewhat ill-defined set of restrictions. Hence, 'freeglut'.
The sigslot library is a portable, type-safe, thread-safe implementation of the signal/slot paradigm written entirely as a C++ template library. No preprocessor is required. The library can coexist with other C++ libraries, notably the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC), adding Qt-like functionality to any suitably instrumented classes. The library should work fine with any reasonably standards compliant C++ compiler that supports the STL and templates with optional template parameters. Partial template specialisation is NOT required.
PDU/ASCII conversion functions convert between an ISO-8859-1 ASCII string and a PDU-encoded array of bytes as described in ETSI GSM 03.38 and ETSI GSM 03.40. A PDU-encoded message is necessary for sending an SMS using a cell phone that does not support plain ASCII mode (like most phones from Ericsson).
U++ is a C++ cross-platform rapid application development suite focused on programmers' productivity without sacrificing runtime performance. Based on strictly deterministic design, it provides a viable alternative to garbage-collected platforms, even for business logic oriented problems.
The National Space Science Data Center's (NSSDC) Common Data Format (CDF) is a self-describing data abstraction for the storage and manipulation of multidimensional data in a platform- and discipline-independent fashion. It consists of a scientific data management package (known as the "CDF Library") that allows programmers and application developers to manage and manipulate scalar, vector, and multi-dimensional data arrays.
The HLA Standard Library was developed to support the High Level Assembler (HLA), but could be used with other assemblers or higher-level languages if the necessary headers were developed. It supports 32-bit versions of Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and FreeBSD, and is written entirely in HLA. It includes the following modules: args, arrays, bits, chars, console, conversions, cset, date, environment, exceptions, file class, file I/O, filesys, lists, math, memory-mapped files, patterns, RNG, stderr, stdin, stdout, strings, tables, time, timer, zstrings, sockets, threads, and blob. An automated test suite is included.
The NCBI C++ Toolkit provides portable libraries and applications for assisting genetic science. These include libraries for networking, SQL and BerkeleyDB access, CGI and HTML handling, ASN.1 and XML handling, sequence alignment engines, sequence retrieval engines, BLAST database engines, FLTK and OpenGL graphics toolkits, and basic system utilities.
Easylzma is a C library and command line tools for LZMA compression and decompression. It uses Igor Pavlov's reference implementation and SDK. It is meant to be a tiny wrapper and portable build system around a subset of Igor Pavlov's LZMA compression and decompression implementation. The API is small and intended to be straightforward. The project aims to support multiple different prominent LZMA file formats and is focused on producing something that is easy to build and use everywhere.
