The Robot Auto Racing Simulator (RARS) consists of a simulation of the physics of cars racing on a track, a graphic display of the race, and a separate control program (robot "driver") for each car. The goal of the game is to implement such a control program in order to compete against other programmers. An official formula one season is held every year.
Kalyp is a fantasy-based roguelike game written in Java. Its design is based on traditions set by popular roguelike games, especially Nethack. It is single player and runs in a text terminal. The project focuses mostly on the Artificial Intelligence engine for the non-player characters. Most of the game design will be done in scripting, as the core engine written in Java will handle user interface, rulesets, basic actions, and try to hold it all together.
Gri is an extensible plotting program designed for scientists. It can draw x-y plots, contour plots, and image plots, and has rudimentary programming capabilities. Output is PostScript. Gri is not mouse driven, nor GUI-based; it is a language. Users regard it as an analogue to the LaTeX document formatting language: users gain considerable power, at the price of a moderate learning curve.
Shapefile C Library is a C library for reading and writing ESRI Shapefiles and their related DBF files. All geometry types are supported, with robust DBF support. Shapelib is widely used for commercial and free projects. Shapelib includes command line utilities for dumping, subsetting, clipping, shifting, scaling, and reprojecting shapefiles.
annie is a C++ API (library) for neural network training and execution. It can be linked to both Windows and Linux applications. Support for multi-layer perceptron networks, radial-basis networks, and Hopfield Networks is present. It can also be interfaced with Matlab's Neural Network toolbox.
PubCrawler is a script for an "alerting" service which scans daily updates to the NCBI Medline (PubMed) and GenBank databases. When PubCrawler is run daily, the results can keep scientists informed of the current contents of Medline and GenBank by listing new database entries that match their research interests.
