Usepackage is a tool for managing the Unix environment for a multi-tool, multi-platform site. It is designed to simplify login scripts and allow administrators to control users' environments centrally. This tool should be considered primarily designed for sites where users have to deal with a number of different tools, or versions of tools, that are installed in different locations and require environment variables to be set. This is particularly a problem for developers, or anyone who has to manage a large toolset across multiple platforms (e.g. different versions of the Sun JDK which require various environment variables to be set correctly). One or more central configuration files control a number of different "packages" and their associated environment and dependencies for different platforms (this includes the standard PATH, MANPATH, and LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables). A single user command, use, can be invoked to source the appropriate environment information into the users' current shell.
nefu (network fidelity utility) is a Unix daemon that monitors services over the network. It uses a "no false alarms" fault verification algorithm, and understands network dependancies. Natively-monitored protocols include ICMP echo (ping), SSH, IPP, DNS, HTTP, POP, NTP, IMAP, SMTP, and LDAP, as well as having facilities to execute external programs. Status pages are available via finger or the Web.
PDC is a desktop calculator in the 'bc' style with features designed for programmers. It does not support floating point math, but does provide all the C operators (logical, bitwise, shifts, etc.) and implements ISO C operator precedence. Additionally, functions are available to assist with 'bit bashing' tasks such as byte swapping and bit scanning.
Signal Applications To Audio Networks is a program aimed at different signal processing tasks. The primary type of signals are audio signals. The user describes networks of different modules using a special language, and the modules are dynamically loaded libraries. The system can be used to create music from scratch, or to process already created audio files, and depending on the complexity of the network versus the capacity of the host machine, everything can be done in "real time".
The GUIShell project is a collection of utilities facilitating the use of the GTK+ toolkit in shell scripts through the gtkshell utility. The ACE configuration environment provides sample scripts utilizing gtkshell for desktop utilities. rootcat provides the ability to display messages to the root window using Xft, allowing one to write status display scripts.
OpenDaemon provides a model of work along with its supporting APIs that allow anybody to implement a server of any kind, for any protocol. Its main goal is to help provide an advanced data storage solution that is flexible enough to allow its user to choose from a broad set of parsers, data extractors, processors, or any other supporting API. The generic server platform system is meant to make development of the data storage solution more open and distributable.
cproto generates function prototypes for functions defined in the specified C source files to the standard output. The function definitions may be in K&R or ANSI C style, or in the lint library form. cproto can also convert function definitions in the specified files from the K&R style to the ANSI C style.
