Mercury is a new logic/functional programming language, which combines the clarity and expressiveness of declarative programming with advanced static analysis and error detection features. Its highly optimized execution algorithm delivers efficiency far in excess of existing logic programming systems, and close to conventional programming systems. Mercury addresses the problems of large-scale program development, allowing modularity, separate compilation, and numerous optimization/time trade-offs.
StepSim is a lightweight step-based simulation module written in Python. It can do simple real-time simulations of discrete systems. StepSim supports step-by-step simulation or can run until a break condition occurs. Simulations are made up of containers and converters. A container stores a discrete amount of units of a certain type. A converter draws units from one or more containers and delivers the result to another container. StepSim does not even attempt to do any parallel processing. It processes converters round-robin in a fixed order.
GlyphViewer is a desktop application that allows users to build translations from text in images and export them into different image formats or even HTML. Users can use OCR technology to identify text in images, such as English, German, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, and many more. A unique feature of the application is its support for Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs.
Fimex is a the File Interpolation, Manipulation, and EXtraction library for gridded geospatial data. It converts between different, extensible data formats (currently netcdf, NcML, grib1/2, metgm, wdb, and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible to subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files. For simple usage, Fimex also comes with the command line program fimex.
crackxls2003 breaks the encryption on Microsoft Excel and Word 97/2000/XP/2002/2003 files which have been encrypted using the RC4 method. These files are encrypted using a 40-bit-long key. It will not work on files encrypted using versions later than 2007 or versions 95 or earlier, or if a non-default encryption method was used.
NARS2000 is an experimental APL interpreter. The first NARS (Nested Arrays Research System) was designed and implemented in the early 1980s as a testbed for new ideas in APL, principally with nested arrays. A quarter of a century later, it's time to try again. The goal of this effort, as with the last one, is to foster new ideas about the language and its implementation. Language ideas include new functions, operators, and datatypes. Implementation ideas include algorithms to enhance code space (smaller executable), time space (faster execution times), or expressibility (clearer and more understandable code). A goal of the existing implementation is to be open and easy for others to change so new ideas may be inserted smoothly.
Code Manager 2 (CM2) has been designed to provide a complete source code control system for a set of developers sharing the same working directory tree. It offers developers and organizations many advantages. It provides a comprehensive set of features and has been designed to be very easy to pick up and use to manage projects. It works across Unix and Windows platforms, requiring little configuration and only a limited number of dependencies. It provides facilities at both an individual source file level and project level. The project level facilities include facilities to copy or merge whole projects or generate and apply change-sets. It uses an efficient repository format to handle large files and large numbers of files and directories. It provides facilities to generate packages from the project in a number of formats (including TP2, Slackware, APT, RPM, Autopackage, SVR4, and InstallP).
