PumpKIN is a fully functional TFTP server and TFTP client that implements the TFTP protocol according to RFC1350. It also implements the block size option, which allows the transfer of files larger than 32MB, as well as transfer size and transfer timeout options described in RFC2348 and RFC2349.
Inbucket is an email testing service. It accepts messages for any email address and makes them available to view via a Web interface. It allows Web developers, software engineers, and system administrators to quickly see the emailed output of their applications. No per-account setup is required. Mailboxes are created on the fly as mail is received for them, and no password is required to browse the content of the mailboxes.
LuaRocks is a deployment and management system for modules in the Lua programming language. It aims to provide facilities for Lua such as those from module systems of other scripting languages, such as Ruby's RubyGems or Perl's CPAN. LuaRocks allows Lua modules to be installed as self-contained packages called "rocks", which also contain version and dependency information.
The Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) is a unifying C/C++ API for accessing raster geospatial data, and currently includes formats like GeoTIFF, Erdas Imagine, Arc/Info Binary, CEOS, DTED, GXF, and SDTS. It is intended to provide efficient access, suitable for use in viewer applications, and also attempts to preserve coordinate systems and metadata. Python, C, and C++ interfaces are available.
curl and libcurl is a tool for transferring files using URL syntax. It supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, SCP, SFTP, TFTP, DICT, TELNET, LDAP, POP3, IMAP, SMTP, RTSP, RTMP, and FILE, as well as HTTP-post, HTTP-put, cookies, FTP upload, resumed transfers, passwords, port numbers, SSL certificates, Kerberos, and proxies. It is powered by libcurl, the client-side URL transfer library. There are bindings to libcurl for about 40 languages and environments.
Metakit is a small, portable database library using a hybrid relational / hierarchical data model with a column-wise internal storage format. For C++, include a single header file and 125 kb DLL or statically link directly. Ideal for desktops, embedded systems, smartphones, and PDAs. Bindings for Python and Tcl. A very mature, stable code base.
Gow (GNU On Windows) is a lightweight alternative to Cygwin. It uses a convenient Windows installer that installs about 130 extremely useful open source Unix applications compiled as native Win32 binaries. It is designed to be as small as possible, about 10 MB, as opposed to Cygwin which can run well over 100 MB depending upon options.
ImageVis3D is a volume rendering application specifically designed to render large data sets. This is achieved by splitting the data set into multiple levels of detail (LoD), with each level itself decomposed into multiple bricks (atomic rendering primitives). Interaction occurs at the coarsest LoD, which can be rendered instantaneously on almost all modern systems. After a configurable delay, ImageVis3D will successively render finer levels of detail, until the data are visible at their native resolution. Volume rendering, as the name implies, is a technique for rendering scalar volumes of data. The rendering method allows one to see "inside" a data set, allowing the user to understand the inner three-dimensional structure of the data.
dns.c is a recursive, re-entrant, non-blocking DNS resolver in a single .c file. It features a record-agnostic API, restartable record iterators, and smart queries which recursively follow out-of-bailiwick NS, MX, and SRV host references. It works just as well as a stub resolver, too. It also includes spf.c, a non-blocking SPF resolver with no threading, no forking, and no run-time dependencies.
C++ Resources Compiler is a tool that will generate a C++ source file (along with the corresponding header file) that embeds any given data file and provides a Resource class which gives access to this data. The Resource class can be created in two flavors: one using STL streams, the other using WxWidgets streams. Its function is similar to that of the "qtrc" tool from the Qt toolkit.
