magicErmine is a tool for creating portable applications for Linux. It allows the same Linux executable to be run on a wide range of different distributions. Like statifier, It makes one executable file with no run-time dependencies from a dynamically linked executable and all of its libraries. Unlike statifier, it is able to add arbitrary files to the packed executable, such as configuration files or pixmaps.
mkconfig is a build configuration utility. It creates an output file intended to be included as a header file, run as a shell script, used as a configuration file, or any other use. mkconfig is written in portable shell script and designed to be extensible for any configuration use.
Lazarus is a RAD Object Pascal Development IDE for use with Free Pascal. It is the open source equivalent of the Delphi VCL, designed to be widget-independent and to work on any platform where Free Pascal can be found.
OpenTaxSolver (OTS) is a free safe & secure application for doing your US Federal and State income taxes. It is based on a GUI for easy entry of your information to calculate your tax answers. It assists you in doing the otherwise tedious calculations, while showing the intermediate and final numbers. It can now automatically fill-out your numbers onto several of the official government PDF tax forms.
A simple, light-weight, desktop-independent update notification applet for the system tray on apt based systems as Debian, Ubuntu or Linux Mint. The main goal of un-applet is to provide an easy way to help users to keep their system up to date without getting in the user's way while keeping software dependencies at a minimum. A cron job runs in the background and periodically checks for pending software updates, the applet informs you by its color about the state of your system. Through its menu
The Free Pascal Compiler is a Turbo Pascal 7.0 and Delphi-compatible 32/64 bit Pascal Compiler. It comes with a fully TP 7.0-compatible run-time library. Some extensions have been added to the language, like function overloading. Shared libraries can be linked. Basic Delphi support is implemented with classes, exceptions, RTTI, and ansistrings. A Free Component Library (FCL) is available with the base classes. Bindings for X11, ncurses, GTK, OpenGL, zlib, mysql, interbase and postgres are availa
yuck is a command line option parser for C that works on a minimal set of dependencies---only a C compiler and the m4 macro processor are required. It supports all the standard use cases: GNU-style long options (--option), condensable short options (-xab for -x -a -b), and optional arguments to long and short options (--foo[=BAR]), multiple occurrence of options (-vvv). Most importantly, it does not depend on libc's getopt() nor getopt_long().
Vortex Library is an implementation of the RFC 3080 and RFC 3081 standard definitions, known as the BEEP Core protocol, implemented on top of the TCP/IP stack. It comes with complete XML-RPC over BEEP RFC 3529 support, complete support for the TUNNEL profile (which allows you to perform proxy operations for every BEEP profile developed), support for HTTP proxies, and more. The API is consistent, easy to use, and allows you to write application protocols very quickly. The API is designed to allow
Eventum is a user-friendly and flexible issue tracking system that can be used by a support department to track incoming technical support requests or by a software development team to quickly organize tasks and bugs. Eventum is used by the MySQL AB Technical Support team, and has allowed them to dramatically improve response times.
ELF statifier makes one executable file with no runtime dependencies from a dynamically-linked executable and all its libraries. This file can be copied and run on another machine with no need for all of the libraries.
libcfg+ is a C library that features multi- command line and configuration file parsing. It is possible to set up various special properties such as quoting characters, deliminator strings, file comment prefixes, multi-line postfixes, and more. It supports many data types such as booleans, integers, decimal numbers, strings with many additional data type flags (such as multiple values for a single option).
SCCS is an implementation of the POSIX standard Source Code Control System. It is based on the original UNIX SCCS code provided by Sun as part of OpenSolaris and was made portable to other platforms. This version is a major enhancement on the original code.
The ncurses (new curses) library is a freeware emulation of System V Release 4.0 curses. It uses terminfo format, supports pads and color and multiple highlights and forms characters and function-key mapping, and has all the other SYSV-curses enhancements over BSD curses. The distribution includes the library and support utilities, including a terminfo compiler tic, a decompiler infocmp, clear, tput, tset, and a termcap conversion tool captoinfo. Full manual pages are provided for the library an
PasDoc is a documentation tool for Object Pascal code, able to parse all modern Pascal features. Documentation is generated from comments found in your source code and from external files. Output formats include HTML and LaTeX. Command line and GUI versions are available.
The SimulAVR program is a simulator for the Atmel AVR family of microcontrollers (ATtiny and ATmega). SimulAVR can be used either standalone or as a remote target for avr-gdb. There are interfaces for Python and Tcl. When used in gdbserver mode, the simulator is used as a back-end so that avr-gdb can be used as a source level debugger for AVR programs.
smake is a highly portable 'make' program that makes commands up to date based on rules in Makefiles and on the timestamps of the related files. It implements a complete superset of the features of the classical POSIX/Unix make program. It warns about typical misuse of dynamic macros that prevent portability of makefiles. Its automake features allow you to run scripts to automatically create rules for unknown platforms.
A software directory management system that allows developers to announce new releases manually, or automatically via version control.
Mawk (Mike's AWK) is an interpreter for the AWK Programming Language.
Berkeley Yacc (byacc) is a high-quality yacc variant. It is written to avoid dependencies upon a particular compiler. It was written around 1990 by Robert Corbett, who previously wrote Bison. This version has been modified to conform to ANSI C.
STXXL is an implementation of the C++ standard template library STL for external memory (out-of-core) computations. STXXL implements containers and algorithms that can process huge volumes of data that only fit on disks. While compatibility with the STL supports ease of use and compatibility with existing applications, another design priority is high performance.
