RAR is a general purpose archiving and compression program competing with/replacing programs such as PKZip, ARJ and others. RAR offers significantly improved compression ratios, easier use and a better price as well as supporting long file names, disk spanning and self-extracting file creation. RAR introduces an original compression algorithm. It allows higher compression ratios than other PC archiving tools, especially on executable files, Object libraries, large text files, etc.
The MathMap GIMP plug-in is an image processing tool that works on several levels. Without any prerequisite knowledge about image processing, one can use any of the more than one hundred filters that come bundled with MathMap. More advanced users can combine filters intuitively in the Composer, a graphical user interface similar to Yahoo Pipes! and the Quartz Composer. For expert users, there is a simple but very efficient programming language. This is the core of MathMap, and the language that almost all MathMap filters are implemented in. MathMap allows the generation of still images and of animations.
TinyMARE (Multi-user Adventure Roleplaying Epic) is a text-based MUD server completely rewritten for efficiency using TinyMUSH and TinyMUSE as a basis for its game engine. The server is designed for creating an extensive, novelistic role-playing atmosphere supporting real-time combat, day & night, seasons, and global weather. Using a telnet client, players can log on to explore a virtual world, find magical items, learn skills and techniques, and group together to surpass obstacles you create in your own epic adventure.
interpcom is a command interpreter library in C that can be used to build scientific applications. It is very easy to add new commands. The library contains an expression evaluator that can be used to parse the arguments of the commands. It is possible to define "objects" which are arrays of numbers having a name, and structures. It is possible to use threads (several programs running simultaneously).
GTL can be seen as an extension of the Standard Template Library STL to graphs and fundamental graph algorithms. It is a platform independent and extendible C++ library, and is a useful aid to any software designer. It contains the classes needed to work with graphs, nodes, and edges, and some fundamental algorithms as building blocks for more complex graph algorithms. Customized algorithms can be developed by experienced programmers.
gnokii is a multisystem tool suite for mobile phones. It provides a library to communicate with a phone hiding the communication protocol. The library handles SMS, phonebook, calendar, phone calls, and other mobile phone capabilities. It supports Nokia-FBUS mobiles, AT-capable phones (most of the mobiles), as well as Symbian-based phones.
HTML::Mason is a full-featured web site development and delivery system. Mason allows web pages and sites to be constructed from shared, reusable building blocks called components. Components contain a mix of Perl and HTML, and can call each other and pass values back and forth like subroutines. Components increase modularity and eliminate repetitive work. HTML::Mason is most powerful when used in conjunction with mod_perl, but can be used in standalone applications as well.
Dr. Geo is an interactive geometry program that is distributed as a universal portable application. It allows one to create a geometric sketch and manipulate it according to its constraints. It is usable at home or at school, in primary or secondary education. It is simple and effective with extended features including scripting and programming.
