UnixODBC.pm provides Perl programs with a subset of the X/Open ODBC API for use with EasySoft's unixODBC DBMS libraries, as well as a peer to peer API for querying ODBC data sources on networked systems. In addition, it provides peer client and server scripts and configuration files, sample clients that perform ODBC queries on local and networked systems, result set output for RSS feeds, and two multi-host data managers: one that uses Apache and CGI to provide a Web browser interface, and another that uses Perl/Tk.
Ctpp is the C99-compatible C preprocessor of the Ctalk language, which provides object oriented extensions for C. The preprocessor is compatible with GNU cpp and provides extensions like macro expansion in warning and error messages, saving expanded macros to files, and built-in symbol definition for many command line options. You can download the preprocessor separately while Ctalk is between versions for development.
Ctalk adds classes, methods, operator overloading, inheritance, and complex object expressions to otherwise standard C programs. Programs can use only a few Ctalk objects and methods in an otherwise standard C program, but the language can be used to write entire programs also. Ctalk works on most if not all of the systems that support GCC, the GNU C compiler. The package includes the language, class and run-time libraries, example programs, tutorial, and language reference.

Re: You AIN'T alone
The problem that I have with the porn industry is basically the same problem I have with the religious industry - I don't care. I am a "keep your laws off my body" person. The problem is not so much the content - it's the constant spam from porn sites ... and political hacks ... and Bible peddlers ... What you're witnessing is a reaction. It's not such content that people object to, it's that it attracts the attention of ideologues that have opposing views. Face it, any place you go, escpecially public gatherings like conventions, there's always going to be some headline-grabbing DA waiting to score brownie points with the local fundamentalists. And I still cling to my pointy-headed belief that the law is for people that can afford it.
I get really sick of being accused of spamming - happens all the time to FAQ maintainers - and that's one reason that the Linux FAQ is so low-key. But, hey, to the do-gooding fundamentalists, your unwillingness to use your real name is just another admission of guilt. You need to stand up for your work... once they figure out that you're not backing down, you'll get a whole lot more respect - and likely a whole new set of friends to replace the ones that are too spineless or hypocritical to support your work.
Anyways, I just felt the uncontrollable desire to rant. :) Thanks for reading. Maybe you could even give'm a bird, and say it's from me.
