GNU Phantom.Security is a computer-controlled security system. Using the software and a simple circuit board (diagram included) that you build, you can create a good basic security system that is computer controlled. The system can use off-the-shelf security devices like motion sensors, door magnets, and fire/smoke detectors with little to moderate modification. You can have a total of 5 devices per port. And if the machine the system is running on is connected to a LAN/WAN or the Internet, you can have it send e-mail. If you have a pager or cell phone capable of receiving e-mail, then you will have around the clock intrusion/fire detection for your home or office.
bcnu is a Web-based system management tool which delivers information on the status of networked systems in a simple and easy-to-use manner. It uses a web browser to display information about hosts in a tabular form. Historical information can be held indefinitely, and there is a powerful query tool available to interrogate it. Client systems can run an agent which logs information back to a central system. An agent scheduler is integrated to allow agents to be run at different intervals. Standard agents include ftp, http, disk space, logfiles, processes, and more.
TiLP is a linking program for Texas Instruments' graphing calculators. It can handle any TI calculator from TI73 to V200 with any link cable (parallel, serial, TI's Black/Gray/Silver Link, AVRlink, and virtual). It features backup and restore, sending and receiving variables, ROM dumping, screen captures, grouping and ungrouping of TI files, and runs on UNIX, Windows, and Mac OS.
Fl_Editor is a word-wrapping text editor widget for the FLTK toolkit. It supports CUA-style editing keys, automatic scrollbar display, load and save to file or buffer, and more. Fl_Editor includes subclasses with status and position display, find and replace, a couple of utility widgets, a status panel and a progress bar that can be used independent of any of the editors.
Libgda is a (relatively small) database access library. It provides a wrapper like ODBC but with more features for accessing several database engines, a general data model for use with CSV or XML files, a metadata extractor that retrieves information about database objects in a common way, and a SQL console application (like mysql, psql or sqlite3 consoles).
Star is a very fast, POSIX-compliant tar archiver, maintained for more than 30 years. It saves many files together into a single tape or disk archive, and can restore individual files from the archive. It includes command line interfaces for the "tar", "Sun-Tar", "cpio", "pax", and "gnutar" command-line syntax. It includes a FIFO for speed, a pattern matcher, multi-volume support, the ability to archive sparse files and ACLs, the ability to archive extended file flags, automatic archive format detection, automatic byte order recognition, automatic archive compression/decompression, remote archives, and special features that allow star to be used for full and incremental backups. It includes the only known platform independent "rmt" server program.
LeoCAD is a CAD application that uses plastic building bricks similar to those found in many toys. This is the Linux port of the original MS Windows version; it uses OpenGL for the graphics and allows the creation of very large/complex models with a library of over 1500 different parts.
