Aseba is an event-based architecture for distributed control of mobile robots. It targets integrated multi-processor robots or groups of single-processor units, real or simulated. The core of aseba is a lightweight virtual machine tiny enough to run even on microcontrollers. Robots are programmed in a user-friendly scripting language using a cozy integrated development environment.
This package contains Virtual Hybridization tools. Virtual Hybridization uses sets of short probes to generate datasets for comparative genomics: given a DNA sequence and a set of probes, the typical output will give a sequence of oriented probe hits along the DNA sequence. Other tools are supplied to allow simple manipulations such as format conversion and extraction of permutations.
Pipviewer is a visualizer for multiple alignments of genomic sequences. It highlights conserved regions and allows basic annotations. Its main goal is to find conserved probes for the construction of gene order data sets. Selected regions marked as 'probes' can be exported to fasta format. It can also retrieve gene annotations from the NBCI and display this information along the alignment. Pipviewer is not an aligner. You must compute the alignment with another tool like Clustal or Multi PIP Maker.
SQL Power DQguru is an easy-to-use data cleansing and de-duping tool. The user interface puts a strong emphasis on straightforward visualization of your data and processes. It will help you cleanse your data, validate and correct addresses, and identify and remove duplicate records. Thus, you can provide your business users with complete and accurate data, and a single view of each customer, product, sales rep, and business unit.
OpenAMQ is a fast, stable, free implementation of the AMQP (www.amqp.org) messaging protocol. It gives applications high-performance messaging (delivery of opaque data) across loosely connected networks. It is capable of handling up to 600k messages per second depending on the hardware, with a latency around 300 microseconds. It is multithreaded and supports C/C++ and Java on Linux, AIX, Solaris, OS/X, Windows, and OpenVMS.
Nomatic*IM provides a service that supports the convenient and appropriate broadcasting of presence through instant messaging clients. It provides the flexibility to support multiple IM protocols, IM clients, and operating systems. From a high-level, what Nomatic*IM does is to figure out where you are and what you are doing from the sensors that come with your computing platform. That information is processed with machine learning techniques to develop a semantic interpretation about the name of your current place, activity, and social context.
Trowser is a browser for large line-oriented text files (such as debug traces). It's meant as an alternative to "less". Compared to less, trowser adds color highlighting, a persistent search history, graphical bookmarking, separate search result windows, and flexible skipping of input from pipes to STDIN. Trowser has a graphical interface, but is designed to allow browsing via the keyboard at least to the same extent as less. Key bindings and the cursor positioning concept are derived from vim.
XMLToaster is a tool for extracting and loading XML from databases. It provides a modified version of SQL which has XML mapping extenstions. It can be compared to the "for xml" command in MS SQL Server 2008, but it runs on all common databases and scales to handle very large XML mappings without too much complexity. It is used as a Java library to write XML interfaces, but can also be run as a command line tool.
