Bayonne is the telephony server of the GNU project. It offers a script-driven threaded multi-line state event telephony service on GNU/Linux, xBSD, and Microsoft Windows for building voice response systems, and uses telephony plugins for runtime driver configuration. It also features "TGI" for making Perl applications "telephony aware". It may be used to build telephony-based system administration, home automation, automated attendant, v-commerce, and voice messaging systems.
DXSpider is a Ham Radio program that connects to other similar programs by radio or the internet and provides a real-time information service to Ham Radio operators rather like IRC. It is designed to become a complete replacement for the original DOS implementation written by Dick Newell AK1A.
Ecasound is a software package designed for multitrack audio processing. It can be used for simple tasks like audio playback, recording, and format conversions, as well as for multitrack effect processing, mixing, recording and signal recycling. It supports a wide range of audio inputs, outputs, and effect algorithms. Effects and audio objects can be combined in various ways, and their parameters can be controlled by operator objects like oscillators and MIDI-CCs. A versatile console-mode user interface is included in the package.
g2 is an easy to use, portable and powerful 2D graphics library. It provides a comprehensive set of functions for simultaneous generation of graphical output on different types of devices. The following devices are currently supported: Postscript, X11, FIG (xfig), PNG, and JPEG using the gd library, and Win32. g2 is written in C (ANSI) and additionally has Fortran, Perl, and Python interfaces.
Greenstone is a complete digital library creation, management, and distribution package for Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X. Users create collections by gathering a set of input documents, specifying a configuration file, and running the build script. It provides full-text and fielded searching, browsable indexes, customised formatting, metadata extraction (acronyms, languages, etc), a Z39.50 client, and many other features. It supports many input formats, the interface is configurable and multi-lingual, and collections can be distributed on the Web or on CD-ROM.
Embperl gives you the power to embed Perl code in your HTML or XML/XSLT documents and the ability to build your Web site out of small reusable objects in an OO-style. It can also build taglibs and use caching. You can also take advantage of hundreds of Perl modules which have already been written for such tasks as database access to a growing number of database systems. Embperl has several features especially useful for creating HTML, including dynamic tables, formfield-processing, escaping/unescaping, session handling, and more. Embperl is a server-side tool, which means that it's browser-independent. It can run in various ways: under mod_perl, as a CGI script, or offline.
HTML::Mason is a full-featured web site development and delivery system. Mason allows web pages and sites to be constructed from shared, reusable building blocks called components. Components contain a mix of Perl and HTML, and can call each other and pass values back and forth like subroutines. Components increase modularity and eliminate repetitive work. HTML::Mason is most powerful when used in conjunction with mod_perl, but can be used in standalone applications as well.
John the Ripper is a fast password cracker, currently available for many flavors of Unix, Windows, DOS, BeOS, and OpenVMS. Its primary purpose is to detect weak Unix passwords. It supports several crypt(3) password hash types commonly found on Unix systems, as well as Windows LM hashes. On top of this, lots of other hashes and ciphers are added in the community-enhanced version (-jumbo), and some are added in John the Ripper Pro.
