HLA Adventure is an adventure game that was written in Randy Hyde's HLA language. It features Mippy, a cute dragon that lives happily in the forests and caves and often comes out during the later part of the day to eat leaves, smoulder decaying trees, and generally romp around like every good dragon should.
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.
SYINF shows in brief a system's CPU brand and model, RAM size, disk space, operating system, regional parameters, and current date and time. It can run in interactive (menu) or batch mode. There are two versions, in the C and C++ languages. They have been tested on 20 (15) compilers, 26 (25) operating systems, and 18 architectures. (Figures in parentheses are for the C++ version.) Both versions are conveyed in source code form only, each as a single ~35 KB source text file.
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.
PyGUI is a GUI API which is designed specifically for Python, taking advantage of Python's unique language features and working smoothly with Python's data types on the three major platforms (Unix, Macintosh, and Windows) that are small and lightweight, interposing as little code as possible between the Python application and the platform's underlying GUI facilities, and not bloating the Python installations or applications which use them.
