'Ikaros' is a framework for writing and running component-based simulators. It is currently used for simulations of brain areas and learning models, but is general enough to be easily used for any discrete-time simulation. A simulation consists of modules connected in the simulator, with connections specified in an XML file. There are socket-based hooks for adding a GUI. The package contains a number of modules and complete documentation for working with the framework.
