Tomabaem is a substitute for the System's Character Palette, at least for people focusing on the so-called CJKV languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese). Tomabaem, like Unicode, is cross-language. Whatever you are looking for related to Chinese characters, there's a high chance that Tomabaem has a way of looking it up, whether it's the Cantonese pronunciation, the UTF-16 codepoint, the radical, the meaning, or the character itself, which you can copy/paste or drag'n'drop from another document. It uses UniHan.txt file from the Unicode Consortium as the basis of the data shown.
fPic is a two-part project that aims at providing a replacement Picture class for command-line applications made with REALBasic. It is split into a dynamic library, manip.dylib, and an RB class, fPic. The dylib handles the heavy-lifting, while the fPic class provides a (more or less) seamless way for RB programmers to manipulate images in CLI applications.
