libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types. The goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks, file managers, and WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain meta-data about files. It includes a shell-command and bindings for Java (JNI) and Python.
The PortalSys Addressbook is designed for clients who use Outlook on the desktop but use Linux as the mail system. It allows you to easily integrate Outlook with your Linux system's addresses. The system is made up of two parts: an Outlook service for your Win32 clients and a server-side application to generate and update your addressbook as often as you like.
Harm acts as a four-way socket redirector that allows you to effectively make a TCP connection from the Internet to a host behind a Linux masquerade-style firewall. The server (behind the firewall) makes connections to the client (on the Internet). After a successful connection, it will bounce packets from a telnet client (Windows and Linux) to the Harm client, to the Harm server (Linux only), or to the telnet daemon behind the firewall.
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.
aria2 is a utility for downloading files. The supported protocols are HTTP(S), FTP, BitTorrent, and Metalink. It has a powerful segmented downloading ability, downloading a file from multiple sources and multiple protocols and utilizing your download bandwidth to the maximum. It supports downloading a file from HTTP(S)/FTP and BitTorrent at the same time, while the data downloaded from HTTP(S)/FTP is uploaded to the BitTorrent swarm. Using Metalink's chunk checksums, aria2 automatically validates chunks of data while downloading a file like BitTorrent.
Irma is a CGI program used to retrieve the information from an HTML form, send confirmation email, and keep track of the data posted. Irma can be used remotely, can automate mandating fields (required information), prompt for confirmation as an intermediate step, and send electronic mail to a list of receivers, including dynamically-generated names with posted data mapped in email contents, subject and other fields. It can provide the highest level of customization through an expressions machanism at all levels of content generation, and can keep track of posted data in a server-side file of any desired format. It has a central administration and full control over remote processing for no security compromise, can chain multiple forms and inherit variables and data from previous ones, and it allows customized levels of errors and messages.
