pHash is an implementation of various perceptual hashing algorithms. A perceptual hash is a fingerprint of a multimedia file derived from various features from its content. Unlike cryptographic hash functions that rely on the avalanche effect of small changes in input leading to drastic changes in the output, perceptual hashes are "close" to one another if the features are similar. Potential applications include copyright protection, similarity searches for media files, or even digital forensics.
pHoToMoLo is a toolset for managing JPEG images in JFIF or Exif format. Photomolo generates a static HTML 4.01- and CSS 1-based multi-resolution image gallery for a directory tree containing images. Exifiron losslessly compresses and corrects the orientation of Exif JPEG images. Jpegnail removes or embeds thumbnails. Jpegcom lets you edit embedded image comments using any text editor and image viewer. A shell script frontend for Exifiron is included for copying images from removable storage, such as USB or Compact Flash.
pLoader is software dedicated to photo preparation and transfer to your Piwigo installation. You can select photos from your file browser. Automatic preparation includes resizing for Web display, thumbnail creation, and automatic rotation. You can fill in information such as name, author, or description, and create categories. You can transfer a photo selection to your remote Piwigo photo gallery. Your photos are visible on your gallery as soon as they are transferred.
pacparser is a library to parse proxy auto-config (PAC) files. Proxy auto-config files are a vastly used proxy configuration method these days. Web browsers can use a PAC file to determine which proxy server to use or whether to go direct for a given URL. The idea behind pacparser is to make it easy to add PAC file parsing capability to any program (C and Python are supported right now). It comes as a shared C library and a Python module that can be used to make any C or Python program PAC scripts intelligent. Some very useful targets could be popular Web software like wget, curl, and python-urllib.
Pactester is a tool to test proxy auto-configuration (PAC) files. PAC files are used by browsers to identify the correct proxy server for a given URL. Since the PAC file evaluation mechanism is generated inside the browser and cannot be accessed from outside, the only way to tell which proxy your browser will use for a specific URL is manual inspection of the PAC file. Unfortunately, this approach is error prone and quickly becomes impractical for large and complex PAC files. Pactester resolves this issue by simulating browser behavior.
PageLayout is a layout lanager for Java Swing/AWT that encapsulates, in a single library, the functionality of many other layout managers. It allows you to lay out components in appropriately aligned rows, columns, and grids. The elements of rows, columns, and grids may themselves be rows, columns, and grids of components. As a result, relatively complex layouts can be managed with code that is compact and conceptually quite straightforward to understand and, therefore, maintain.
Palm-Strip-Export is a utility to export your legacy PalmOS Strip databases to simple CSV files. Once your databases are exported you can print them, open them in Excel, or import them into a separate program. Most importantly, these export files will be directly importable to the iPhone when the desktop sync tool is released. This exporter only works with Palm Strip 2.0 databases.
