GNU units converts quantities expressed in various systems of measurement to their equivalents in other systems of measurement. Like many similar programs, it can handle multiplicative scale changes. It can also handle nonlinear conversions such as Fahrenheit to Celsius, and it can perform conversions from and to sums of units, such as converting between feet plus inches and meters. Beyond simple unit conversions, units can be used as a general-purpose scientific calculator which keeps track of units in its calculations. You can form arbitrary complex mathematical expressions of dimensions including sums, products, quotients, powers, and even roots of dimensions. In this way, you can ensure accuracy and dimensional consistency when working with long expressions which involve many different units which may combine in complex ways. The units are defined in an extensive, well-annotated data file which defines over 2,500 units. You can also provide your own file to supplement or replace the standard file.
GSMLIB is a library to access GSM mobile phones through GSM modems. Features include: modification of phonebooks stored in the mobile phone or on the SIM card, reading and writing of SMS messages stored in the mobile phone, sending and reception of SMS messages. Additionally, some simple command line programs are provided to use these features.
gpsim is a software simulator for Microchip's PIC microcontrollers. It was designed to provide accurate simulation at real-time speeds. Support exists for all three families of PIC's: 12-, 14-, and 16-bit cores. Simulator features like breakpoints (both execution and memory), trace, symbolic debugging, etc. are all supported. Additonally, simulated stimuli like square waves and analog signals are supported or, if you want, you can create your own dynamically loadable modules (like a 7-segment display). gpsim has both a GTK-based GUI and a readline-based CLI.
Easysoft JDBC-ODBC Bridge enables Java applications and applets on any JVM to access any remote ODBC data source, such as MS Access or SQL Server. It is a Type 3 driver certified by Sun Microsystems for use with J2EE™ branded products. The client driver is 100% Java, eliminating the hassle of client side ODBC drivers. It is compatible with any third party ODBC driver and gives multiple concurrent access to multiple data sources from multiple client devices. It is built for commercial use with high transaction rates and dependable performance. It is compatible with all leading Web application servers and Java™ IDEs.
Harbour is a free, cross-platform compiler for the Xbase language. It is designed to be as compatible with CA-Clipper as humanly possible. Harbour ships with full source and makefiles, and combined with one of many C compilers will create executables which run natively on the following platforms: Linux, FreeBSD, DOS, Windows 3.x/9x/NT/W2000, and OS/2.
SWISH++ is a Unix-based file indexing and searching engine (typically used to index and search files on web sites). It was based on SWISH-E although SWISH++ is a complete rewrite. SWISH++ is at least 10 times faster and can handle much larger numbers of files. Additionally, it has unique features such as selective non-indexing, on-the-fly filters, user-selectable stemming, and more.
