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.
xtcc is a set of tools being developed for market research data processing. It is comprised of the following components: xtcc compiler, a data processing backend, qscript, a questionnaire scripting language, a data conversion program for converting data from the qscript format to data processing backend format, and dpassist, a tool to aid in the writing of tabulation and edit specs. The input for this program will be the questionnaire script or map file for the data.
YYAST is a library which completes Lex and Yacc by adding an Abstract Syntax Tree (AST). It is designed so that you write as little as code as possible in the Lex and Yacc grammar files, so that it doesn't distract from the grammar of the language, and is intended to make it easier to use high level programming languages for compilers.
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.
dwarf-ng is a small and powerful object file manipulator. With dwarf-ng, you can read, edit, and manipulate section headers, inject code or data, and create new section headers of object files. Currently, it handles object files in the PE, Mach-O, and ELF formats. For the moment, dwarf-ng only has a command-line interface. dwarf-ng is fully scriptable (as it has a scripting language), and is flexibly configurable.
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.
links2world Firewall is an iptables script generator for Linux 2.4.x or newer kernels. The configuration file is very human readable and easy to understand and write. It does not matter if you have one, two, three, or twenty network interfaces; it is able to generate stateful iptables rule sets that control the packet flows between all the networks your machine is attached to.
