ExactAudio is a C++ digital audio signal processing library formerly known as GSMP. It features non-destructive editing, multiple channels, and real-time FX preview. It is very interactive, as all the major work is done in background threads, and files are not converted or copied during importing. The underlying streaming framework also provides support for VoIP, and a simple audio player is included.
ExactImage is a fast C++ image processing library. Unlike ImageMagick, it allows operation in several color spaces and bit depths natively, resulting in much lower memory and computational requirements. Some optimized algorithms operate in 1/20 of the time ImageMagick requires, and displaying large images can be as fast as 1/10 of the time the "display" program takes.
ExactScan is a versatile document capture application for home offices and workgroups. It is designed from the ground up for high-speed document scanners and can easily handle hundreds of images per minute, including duplex scans. Included functionality reaches from managing, sorting, and editing singles pages to writing multi- as well as single-page PDF files including JPEG compression and TIFF, JPEG, JPEG2000, and PNG bitmap files. ExactScan allows performing state of the art image processing including automatic cropping, deskewing, dynamic thresholding for perfect black and white documents, and descreening print rasters.
Lua Bash is a bridge between GNU bash and the Lua scripting language. It allows replacing hot and complex code paths that formerly would be written in awk, sed, or even Perl with run-time efficient Lua code. It was developed and is used in the T2 SDE to accelerate code fragments that became too slow over the years.
MacOSD is a visualization frontend for PBButtonsD, the button and power event daemon used for Apple computers. It utilizes Evas with its anti-aliasing and alpha-blending canvas capabilities for rendering. The less-eye-candy-rich Xosd can also be used to render shaped windows that work over video overlays. The theme format is GtkPBButtons-compatible.
minised is the fast, small sed originally distributed in the GNU toolkit and still distributed with Minix. The members of the GNU Project removed it when they built their own sed around an enhanced regexp package, but it's still better for some uses (in particular, it's faster and less memory-intensive).
The T2 SDE is a system development environment for various different devices, including desktop/laptop computers, servers, mobile Internet devices, cellular phones, and miscellaneous appliances. It provides a self-contained and automatic build system based on sources with an up-to-date package collection and development toolchain. T2 allows you to easily update a running system or create a binary distribution that can later be deployed via network, physical media, or as a firmware image.
