rnio is a minimalistic nio framework for Java. With rnio, it is easy to use non-blocking network sockets in Java. Internally, rnio runs a set of selectors and handles the thread pool for the network-related tasks. This means that non-blocking network connections can be fully event-based.
These are the demo programs that accompany O'Reilly's "PNG: The Definitive Guide." rpng is a simple file viewer with the ability to set a background color when displaying transparent PNGs. rpng2 is a progressive PNG viewer, designed to work like a web browser (though it contains no network code); it can generate a background image when displaying transparent PNGs. wpng is a simple converter from NetPBM to PNG format; in most respects it is much more limited than pnmtopng, but it supports interactive entry of PNG text annotations and will generate noninterlaced PNGs on the fly (rather than buffering the entire image first like pnmtopng). The viewers include simple front ends for both X and Win32; the converter is a command-line app that compiles on Unix, Windows, and probably other platforms.
rsync-bc (rsync backup client) is a stripped-down version of rsync. The idea behind rsync-bc is to provide a simple client that only supports sending data. Receiving, local file transfers, and daemon/server modes have been disabled. No destructive file operation functions will be present in a binary.
Rsyncrypto allows you to encrypt a file or a directory structure such that they can later be synchronized to another machine using rsync. This means that local changes to the plain text file result in local changes to the cipher text file. rsyncrypto compresses the plain text file prior to encrypting it with gzip using the "rsyncable" patch, which is available from the rsync sources.
The rt-stepper project provides a USB CNC controller solution. Most CNC controllers are designed to be driven with a PC parallel port. The rt-stepper solution replaces the parallel port with USB. Users can convert their existing parallel port CNC controller into a USB CNC controller. Designers can integrate the hardware into there own CNC controller. The PC side software is based on the popular EMC2 software at www.linuxcnc.org. EMC2 provides 4-axis support, a complete gcode interpreter, a trajectory planner, a GUI front-end, backplotting, and more. The best part of the solution is since the rt-stepper hardware provides the real time step pulses, you can now run EMC2 on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows.
