Hormiga is a language designed to be simple and powerful, allowing users without software programming knowledge to make the programs needed to automate the calculations of everyday problems. Generally, it is necessary only for the users to be aware of the problem they want to solve. The language allows programmers to focus on the problem and not to worry about the interactive interface with the user. The programmer will have to state the instructions to solve a problem, in the same way they would do manually. The steps may depend one upon the other. Like most languages, Hormiga has support for functions and the possibility of creating libraries of commonly used code. Unlike most languages, Hormiga automatically and dynamically creates the graphical user interface (GUI) for programs, has support for calculating definite integrals in multiple dimensions, and incorporates a new concept called Step, similar to a procedure of Pascal, but allowing you to state dependences between them.
fsc2 is a program for controlling spectrometers. Experiments are done by interpretation of scripts written in a simple language, EDL. Devices are handled via modules in order to allow easy integration of new devices. More than 50 devices are supported, connected via serial port, GPIB, LAN, or USB as well as data acquisition cards, etc. The state of an experiment can be remotely monitored via a built-in Web server.
Hoc, the High Order Calculator, is an interpreted language for floating-point calculations. Its most basic use is as a powerful and convenient calculator, interactively evaluating expressions such as 1+2*sin(0.7). But hoc is no ordinary calculator: It also lets you assign values to variables, define your own functions, and use loops, conditionals, and everything else you'd expect in a programming language.
The Heirloom Development Tools provide yacc, lex, m4, make, and SCCS as portable derivatives of the utilities released by Sun as part of OpenSolaris. The OpenSolaris utilities were in turn derived from the original Unix versions, and are assumed be conforming implementations of the POSIX standard.
yagg, given YACC-like and LEX-like input files, generates a C++ program that generates all strings of a user-specified length. This program can then be used to generate inputs for testing, or to validate that a grammar accepts the strings that you think it does. The grammar file provides the grammar productions for string generation, along with optional action blocks that can perform context-sensitive checks in order to limit the generated strings. The LEX-like terminal generator file provides specifications that instruct the program how to generate strings for terminals in the grammar.
Nonpareil is a microcode-level simulator for HP calculators introduced between 1972 and 1982, including the HP-35, HP-45, HP-55, HP-25, HP-34C, HP-38C, HP-41CV, HP-11C, HP-12C, HP-15C, HP-16C, and other models. The necessary microcode is included, as is a microcode assembler. The GTK+ toolkit is used for the user interface.
