AVbin
AVbin is a thin wrapper around FFmpeg, providing binary compatibility for applications and languages that need it. FFmpeg is a collection of audio and video codecs widely used in projects such as mplayer, xine, gstreamer and VLC. It is under continuous development; so much so that its developers rarely provide a release, and SVN snapshots of the library must be statically linked to avoid version incompatibilities. AVbin allows programs that require dynamic linkage to use FFmpeg. It does this by providing:
  • an accurate version number within the shared library, allowing applications to select the appropriate data structures and functions to use at runtime, and
  • a simplified interface with an unchanging ABI to the most common decoding functionality within FFmpeg.
  • AVbin is distributed as a single dynamic library (.so on GNU/Linux, .dylib on Mac OS X, and .dll on Windows) that depends on no other files or installations. This eliminates the many complexities of building FFmpeg on platforms other than GNU/Linux; however you can still build it from source if you prefer.
Aalib

Abclock
'abclock' gives a spatial representation of time. It isn't tied to the design of a mechanical clock, but instead uses the natural properties of bitmaps: straight lines and rectangles. The clock uses ordinary hours and minutes. Placement and movement of objects is analogous to mechanical clocks. Time has a symmetrical property that is reflected in the way time changes in this clock. It is clear and exact up to parts of minutes, even when the bitmap is very small.

Alchemist
This package provides a functional, Ruby Domain-Specific Language (DSL) for casting, transforming and transposing objects. The project's README file provides the following explanation of the purpose of this library:

Rationale


Casting complex objects from one type to another can be an uncomfortable process to express well. Objects that we use on a daily basis are not always in our control, and, even when they are, some don't lend themselves to simple construction. Remote service communication objects or complex data structures from libraries we use in our applications can result in large piles of casting code.

This circumstance often produces large swaths of procedural code, even if split up into separate function calls. This code can be not only difficult to understand, but difficult to test if an object requires a great deal of set up. Field or method assignments midway through can change and break the entire operation.

The goal of this project is to provide a method of defining easily digestible specifications for object translation that are also easily testable and changeable. The project focuses on writing specifications for transformations and not doing direct mutation in the recipes. The result is something that should seem somewhat functional, but also exceedingly separable.

Algart
AlgART are free software Java libraries, supporting generalized smart arrays and matrices with elements of any types (1 bit, 8/16/32/64-bit integers, 32/64-bit floating point values and any other Java types), including a wide set of of 2D-, 3D- and multidimensional image processing and other algorithms, working with arrays and matrices.

Main Features

  • The libraries use 63-bit addressing of array elements (all indexes and length are represented by 64-bit long type). So, it's theoretically possible to create and process arrays and matrices containing up to 2^63-1 (~10^19) elements of any primitive or non-primitive types, if OS and hardware can provide necessary amount of memory or disk space.
  • Memory model concept allows storing AlgART arrays in different schemes, from simple Java arrays to mapped disk files; all necessary data transfers are performed automatically while every access to an element or a block of elements.
  • Most of algorithms are based on wide usage of lazy evaluations. Typical operations, like elementwise summing or geometrical matrix transformations, are implemented via lazy views of the source array or matrix.
    • For example, you can take a multidimensional matrix, rotate it (or perform any other affine or projective transform), and then extract a submatrix from the result. All these operations will be performed virtually (not requiring time), and actual calculations will be performed only at the moment of accessing elements, usually while copying the resulting matrix to a newly created one. Moreover, in many cases the libraries will "understand" itself, that the user wants to perform rotation or another transform, and will split the matrix into suitable rectangular blocks (fitting in RAM) and choose the best algorithm for this task at the moment of copying operation.
  • The libraries contain a wide set of image processing algorithms over matrices: linear filtering, mathematical morphology, rank operations, spectral transformation (FFT), etc.
  • There is also skeletonization and measuring of binary images.

'B-Forms' is an object-oriented PHP library for developing Webform-based applications. It supports tabular forms with multiple records of the same type being edited simultaneously, and provides security mechanism against data tampering. The library provides two base layouts that cover the the vast majority of cases. Only in very tricky form layouts would you have to write HTML code to specify the form layout. It also automatically saves and restores hidden fields. 'B-Forms' divides a script into three logical areas: form definition, data management, and form presentation. Forms have a powerful block architecture, each block typically representing a different data object within the form. Each block can be used to edit several objects at once- the library handles record management.

It uses an fprintf/fscanf interface, exporting eight functions: fputf, vfputf, fgetf, vfgetf, fwputf, vfwputf, fwgetf, and vfwgetf. Rather than using data types such as "16 bits", it uses standard C types and uses printf/scanf-style argument lists (it even uses GNU argument checking if available). It should be a drop-in replacement for printf/scanf and still work perfectly well. It aims to be portable to every C89-conforming implementation, but can use C99 and GNU extensions if available.
Bioinformatics Template Library
This library focuses on the data structures and algorithms used in bioinformatics and molecular modelling, following closely the approach of the Standard Template Library (STL) to implement efficient generic programming modules using compile time mechanisms.

The package also includes an object-oriented Perl module for accessing the C library from Perl (the library can also be used by itself, without Perl). Optionally, it features overloaded operators for maximum ease of use.
Bitap
The bitap library is a clean implementation of regular expression (regex/grep) string matching using the bitap algorithm. Approximate (a.k.a. fuzzy) matching is allowed. This is the same algorithm as the one used in Glimpse and agrep, but it is much more complete with regard to regular expression syntax, and is much cleaner. It is quite fast compared to other greps due to the bitap algoritm and modern CPU architechture. Modifying code for special cases speeds things up even futher. Note that the complete 'search' string must be matched by the pattern. If you want to search for substrings of the search string, prefix and postfix the pattern with '.*'.
Bitpacket
BitPacket is a Python module to represent bit field structures in an easy object-oriented way. BitPacket provides three classes: BitField, BitStructure and BitVariableStructure which represent simple bit fields, and fixed and variable structures of bit fields respectively. BitStructure and BitVariableStructure are BitField themselves and all of them can be used together in order to build packets. That is, we can add any BitField subclass into a BitStructure or BitVariableStructure.
Bitstring
bitstring is a pure Python module designed to help make the creation and analysis of binary data as simple and natural as possible. BitStrings can be constructed from integers (big and little endian), hex, octal, binary, strings or files.

After setting the source clock rate and output sampling rate, waveforms are generated by specifying the time points where amplitude changes occur. Treble and bass adjustments are also supported. Many examples are included that show basic waveform generation, sample buffering schemes, and more advanced topics. They can be made to write output to a wave sound file, or optionally use the SDL multimedia library for real-time playback, waveform display, and mouse control of parameters.
BlockCanvas
The BlockCanvas project provides a visual environment for creating simulation experiments, where function and data are separated. Thus, you can define your simulation algorithm by visually connecting function blocks into a data flow network, and then run it with various data sets (known as "contexts"); likewise, you can use the same context in a different functional simulation. The project provides support for plotting, function searching and inspection, and optimization. It includes a stand-alone application that demonstrates the block-canvas environment, but the same functionality can be incorporated into other applications. The BlockCanvas project relies on included libraries that allow multiple data sets using Numeric arrays to be incorporated in a Traits-based model in a way that is simple, fast, efficient, and consistent.

The supported Caml data structures accomodate lists, tables, and trees of items in a straightforward manner. CamlTemplate works well with mod_caml, supports any ASCII-compatible encoding, including UTF-8, and includes optional support for multithreading.
Carrot
carrot is an AMQP messaging queue framework. AMQP is the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol, an open standard protocol for message orientation, queuing, routing, reliability and security. The aim of carrot is to make messaging in Python as easy as possible by providing a high-level interface for producing and consuming messages. At the same time it is a goal to re-use what is already available as much as possible. carrot has pluggable messaging back-ends, so it is possible to support several messaging systems. At the time of release, the py-amqplib based backend is considered suitable for production use. Several AMQP message broker implementations exists, including RabbitMQ, ZeroMQ and Apache ActiveMQ. You'll need to have one of these installed, personally we've been using RabbitMQ. Before you start playing with carrot, you should probably read up on AMQP, and you could start with the excellent article about using RabbitMQ under Python, Rabbits and warrens. For more detailed information, you can refer to the Wikipedia article about AMQP.

Ccaudio Heckert gnu.tiny.png
GNU ccAudio is a stand-alone C++ class library and newly designated GNU package for manipulating audio data, whether on disk or in memory. GNU ccAudio offers the ability to work with audio file formats on disk by treating audio data as sequenced arrays of sample data rather than as arbitrary octets as some audio file manipulation libraries do. In addition to being audio content aware, GNU ccAudio allows header manipulation for setting things like annotation fields. GNU ccAudio is also endian aware and highly portable to both posix and win32 based systems. GNU ccAudio also offers basic audio signal processing including tone data set generation and pluggable codec operations. In the future we will provide loadable free software audio codec modules for many common audio encoding formats where not patent encumbered.

Cgixx
The cgixx C++ CGI class library is intended as a modern Common Gateway Interface library for ISO standard C++ compilers. It is not meant to generate complex HTML forms, but rather to ensure fast and reliable conversations between a Web server's CGI and your C++ code. 'cgixx' supports standard GET, POST, HEAD, and PUT CGI methods and cookies as defined in the version 1.1 specification.
Cheap Threads
Cheap Threads is a collection of routines for implementing synchronous threads. It includes a scheduler and a facility for passing messages among threads. Threads may run in a round robin or according to a priority scheme. Each thread must voluntarily relinquish control from time, via an ordinary function return, so that other threads can run. Since the threads are synchronous, i.e. they don't interrupt each other, they don't need to use semaphores, mutexes, critical sections, or other facilities to keep from interfering with each other. One version of Cheap Threads is designed for embedded systems.
Checker
Checker is a debugging tool suite which is used to find memory errors at runtime. 'Checker' can help find bugs that standard tools cannot always find. The best example is memory leaks. A memory leak is a zone of memory, allocated with malloc that is not used anymore. So the memory allocated is lost. This means you program needs more memory and runs slower, since your OS might have to start swapping. It detects bad memory accesses such as: reading uninitialized memory, writing in a freed zone, writing or reading outside of a memory block, and using NULL pointers. This is particularly useful for big programs with many functions. Checker maintains bitmaps to keep track of the status of each byte of memory. The status can be writable, readable, both, or none. When memory is allocated, the new memory becomes write-only: you are not allowed to read it because it has not been initialized. But when you you write to this new block, those bytes become readable and writable. When the block is freed, the bytes become unreadable and unwritable. Red zones are unreadable and unwritable memory, so that each access to a red zone produces a warning.
Chicken
CHICKEN is a simple Scheme-to-C compiler supporting the language features as defined in the 'Revised^5 Report on Scheme'. It supports full tail-recursion and first-class continuations. The code it generates is quite portable; compiled files generated by it (including itself) should work with either no or minor changes on other systems. Linking to C modules and C library functions is straightforward, and compiled programs can easily be embedded into existing C code. The package includes many extra libraries.

Clanlib
ClanLib is a medium level development kit. At its lowest level, it provides a platform independent way of dealing with display, sound, input, networking, files, threading, etc. Beyond that ClanLib builds a generic game development framework, giving you easy handling of resources, network object replication, graphical user interfaces (GUI) with theme support, game scripting and more. It lets game developers avoid lowlevel trivials like setting up a directdraw window, sound mixing, reading image files, etc. All those things are simplified into object oriented classes and function calls. ClanLib uses a resource system to keep track of images, fonts, samples and music. It supports Targa, PCX, JPEG, PNG and BMP for images; wave files for sample; and Ogg Vorbis and MikMod for music. The resource system separates physical data formats from your code, and makes it easy to make themes and other plugins for your game. All classes in clanlib focus on making simple interfaces that are customizeable and expandable. This keeps your game code clean and simple, but still lets you to do advanced work. ClanLib is object oriented, which lets you operate at both high and low levels, minimizing redundant code but still letting you do things not supported by clanlib's high level APIs.

Cloudgizer
Cloudgizer is a tool for building web applications as Apache modules in C language enhanced with simple markup, with emphasis on performance, small-footprint, and more productive and safer programming in C. It combines the ease of scripting with the power of C, improving the resource utilization for cloud applications. The programmer writes simple markup language mixed with C code, which is then translated entirely into C code and compiled natively as Apache module. The resulting application is fast and takes less memory, as there are no interpreters or virtual machines. Features include easy markups to use MariaDB database, HTML input parameters, cookies, simpler outputting of web pages, files storage and manipulation, encryption, encoding, program execution, web calls, safer and easier string manipulation etc. - the list is too long to place in one sentence. Overall Cloudgizer does a lot of stuff for you that you'd otherwise need to do yourself. A memory garbage collection system and memory overwrite/underwrite detection comes in handy for program stability. The same goes for string and memory handling markups to help write applications that won't crash. Also included is an application packaging system and an automated application installer. This makes rollout of products and release cycle more manageable. Cloudgizer source files have extension .v. Cloudgizer pre-compiler (cld program) will turn your .v files into .c files, ready for compilation as pure C programs. Then, your program will be compiled and linked with Apache web server on RH/Centos systems. It links with Apache as an Apache module in a "prefork" configuration. It does the work of communicating with Apache, and it makes it easier to write high-performance/small-footprint web programs in C. Cloudgizer is not designed to be thread-safe as it works in a "prefork" configuration of Apache. You can also build command-line programs. The same program can serve as both command-line utility and a web program linked with Apache. Cloudgizer works with RedHat/Centos 7 operating system, Apache web server and mariaDB database.
CodePY
CodePy is a C/C++ metaprogramming toolkit for Python. It handles two aspects of native-code metaprogramming:
  • Generating C/C++ source code.
  • Compiling this source code and dynamically loading it into the Python interpreter.
  • Both capabilities are meant to be used together, but also work on their own. In particular, the code generation facilities work well in conjunction with PyCuda. Dynamic compilation and linking are so far only supported in Linux with the GNU toolchain.
CodeTools
The CodeTools project includes packages that simplify meta-programming and help the programmer separate data from code in Python. This library contains classes that allow defining simple snippets, or "blocks", of Python code, analyze variable dependencies in the code block, and use these dependencies to construct or restrict an execution graph. These (restricted) code blocks can then be executed in any namespace. However, this project also provides a Traits-event-enhanced namespace, called a "context", which can be used in place of a vanilla namespace to allow actions to be performed whenever variables are assigned or retrieved from the namespace. This project is used as the foundation for the BlockCanvas project.
Codebird-js
Use codebird-js to connect your website or JavaScript app with the Twitter API. Support for API 1.1 is baked in!

Commoncpp Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Common C++ is a C++ class library that abstracts various system services in a portable manner, thereby making the creation of portable applications much easier. It is portable code, with very low runtime overhead, that works well on a very wide range of target platforms and C++ compilers in everyday use. It includes the 'ape' project, which was formerly a separate package. Common C++ manages threads, synchronization, and network sockets by offering portable C++ classes that abstract these services, as well as supporting "serial" I/O, daemon specific event logging, object serialization (persistence), block/record/page/ oriented file I/O, and configuration file parsing. It also provides an inheritable class architecture for your application that exploits C++ as needed. There are two source trees: one for "POSIX" systems such as GNU/Linux and the Hurd, the other for the Windows API. This makes Common C++ portable at the source level, as the two trees implement a functionally similar class interface. Commoncpp also includes uCommon C++, a lightweight C++ library with features such as rtti and exception handling removed. It is intended for programs linking to C libraries and not the standard C++ library.
Conexus

  • et. al.
Confuse
'libConfuse' is a configuration file parser library. It supports sections and (lists of) values (strings, integers, floats, booleans or other sections), as well as other features (such as single/double-quoted strings, environment variable expansion, functions and nested include statements). It is easy to add configuration file capability to a program via a simple API. 'libConfuse' is not meant to be a configuration file parser library with a gazillion features; rather, it aims to be easy to use and quick to integrate with your code. 'libConfuse' was formerly called libcfg; the name was changed to avoid confusion with other similar libraries.
Coronet
The coronet library implements an epoll and coroutine based library that allows for async operations over certain kinds of files (any file that supports poll(2) and the O_NONBLOCK fcntl(2) flag can be hosted - like sockets, pipes, ...). The coronet library uses the epoll support available in the 2.6 series of Linux kernels, and the libpcl library for coroutine support.
Couchdb-python
This is a Python library for CouchDB. It provides a convenient high level interface for the CouchDB server. This package currently encompasses four primary modules:
  • couchdb.client: the basic client library
  • couchdb.design: management of design documents

Crypton
Crypton is a software framework for remote storage, where the remote server has no knowledge of what is being stored. The content is encrypted client-side before it reaches the server. The framework is designed to be easy for application developers to use, without needing experience in encryption.
Cssutils
Partly implement the DOM Level 2 CSS interfaces. Additional some cssutils only convenience and (hopefully) more pythonic methods are integrated.
CsvUtils
Transformation utilities for csv (or csv-like) generated rows. The standard csv module is very useful for parsing tabular data in CSV format. Typically though, one or more transformations need to be applied to the generated rows before being ready to be used; for instance "convert the 3rd column to int, the 5th to float and ignore all the rest". This module provides an easy way to specify such transformations upfront instead of coding them every time by hand. Two classes are currently available, SequenceTransformer and MappingTransformer, that represent each row as a list (like csv.reader) or dict (like csv.DictReader), respectively.
CuTest
'CuTest' is a unit tesing library for the C language whose tests ensure that your code keeps working as you make small changes in it. They tell you which subroutine is broken, so you can more quickly figure out what's broken. You can also keep adding to your old code without worrying about bad interactions: if there is a bad interaction the tests will catch it. Finally, if every time a bug is reported you write a quick test, you will guarantee that the bug never reappears.
Cuba
The Cuba library offers a choice of four independent routines for multidimensional numerical integration: Vegas, Suave, Divonne, and Cuhre. They work by very different methods, first three are Monte Carlo based. All four have a C/C++, Fortran interface and can integrate vector integrands. Their invocation is very similar, so it is easy to substitute one method by another for cross-checking. For further safeguarding, the output is supplemented by a chi-square probability which quantifies the reliability of the error estimate.
Curl
Curl is a command line tool and library for transferring data with URLs. The both do transfers using Internet protocols, including DICT, FILE, FTP, FTPS, Gopher, HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, LDAP, LDAPS, POP3, POP3S, RTMP, RTSP, SCP, SFTP, SMB, SMTP, SMTPS, Telnet and TFTP. Curl also supports SSL certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, HTTP form based upload, proxies, HTTP/2, cookies, user+password authentication (Basic, Plain, Digest, CRAM-MD5, NTLM, Negotiate and Kerberos), file transfer resume, proxy tunneling and more.
CwMtx
'CwMtx' provides the matrix and vector operations used in engineering and science problems, particularly the quaternion class which implements quaternion math. Quaternions are useful for attitude determination in 3D space because they do not suffer from singularities. Furthermore, successive rotations and transformations of vectors can be accomplished by simple quaternion multiplication. Attitude dynamics can be expressed in a very compact form using quaternions.
DSSI
DSSI is an API for audio plugins, with particular application for software synthesis plugins with native user interfaces. DSSI is an open specification developed for use in Linux audio applications, although it is portable to other platforms. It may be thought of as LADSPA-for-instruments, or something comparable to VSTi. This package contains the header file required for compiling hosts and plugins.
DUNE-Common
DUNE, the Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment is a modular toolbox for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) with grid-based methods. It supports the easy implementation of methods like Finite Elements (FE), Finite Volumes (FV), and also Finite Differences (FD). DUNE is free software licensed under the GPL (version 2) with a so called "runtime exception" (see license). This licence is similar to the one under which the libstdc++ libraries are distributed. Thus it is possible to use DUNE even in proprietary software. The underlying idea of DUNE is to create slim interfaces allowing an efficient use of legacy and/or new libraries. Modern C++ programming techniques enable very different implementations of the same concept (i.e. grids, solvers, ...) using a common interface at a very low overhead. Thus DUNE ensures efficiency in scientific computations and supports high-performance computing applications. DUNE is based on the following main principles:
  • Separation of data structures and algorithms by abstract interfaces.- This provides more functionality with less code and also ensures maintainability and extendability of the framework.
  • Efficient implementation of these interfaces using generic programming techniques.
  • Static polymorphism allows the compiler to do more optimizations, in particular function inlining, which in turn allows the interface to have very small functions (implemented by one or few machine instructions) without a severe performance penalty. In essence the algorithms are parametrized with a particular data structure and the interface is removed at compile time. Thus the resulting code is as efficient as if it would have been written for the special case.
  • Reuse of existing finite element packages with a large body of functionality.- In particular the finite element codes UG, ALBERTA, and ALUGrid have been adapted to the DUNE framework. Thus, parallel and adaptive meshes with multiple element types and refinement rules are available. All these packages can be linked together in one executable.
  • The framework consists of a number of modules which are downloadable as separate packages. The current core modules are:
  • dune-common- contains the basic classes used by all DUNE-modules. It provides some infrastructural classes for debugging and exception handling as well as a library to handle dense matrices and vectors.
  • dune-grid- is the most mature module. It defines nonconforming, hierarchically nested, multi-element-type, parallel grids in arbitrary space dimensions. Graphical output with several packages is available, e.g. file output to IBM data explorer and VTK (parallel XML format for unstructured grids). The graphics package Grape has been integrated in interactive mode.
  • dune-istl (Iterative Solver Template Library)- provides generic sparse matrix/vector classes and a variety of solvers based on these classes. A special feature is the use of templates to exploit the recursive block structure of finite element matrices at compile time. Available solvers include Krylov methods, (block-) incomplete decompositions and aggregation-based algebraic multigrid.

Dajax
Dajax, the new easy to use ajax library for your django projects. All the power of ajax now available for django.
Database Template Library
The Database Template Library makes ODBC recordsets look just like STL containers. Users move through containers using standard STL iterators, and if they insert(), erase(), or replace() records in the containers, changes are automatically committed to the database. Since 'dtl' complies with STL iterator and container standards, users can plug abstractions into a range of STL algorithms for data storage, searching, and manipulation. The C++ reflection mechanism used to bind to database tables lets users add generic indexing and lookup properties to the containers without requiring special code. Since the code takes full advantage of the template mechanism, 'dtl' adds minimal overhead (compared with using raw ODBC calls).
DataparkSearch
DataparkSearch is an Internet and Intranet search engine tool. Key features:
  • Support for http, https, ftp, nntp and news URL schemes.
  • htdb virtual URL scheme support for indexing SQL databases.

  • Various character sets support.
  • Accent insensitive search.
  • Phrases segmenting for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai.
  • mod_dpsearch - search module for Apache web server.
  • Internationalized Domain Names support
Date Calc
The Date::Calc package consists of a C library and a Perl module (which uses the C library internally) for all kinds of date calculations based on the Gregorian calendar (the one used in all Western countries today), thereby complying with all relevant norms and standards: ISO/R 2015-1971, DIN 1355 and, to some extent, ISO 8601 (where applicable). The package is designed as a toolbox, not a ready-made application. It provides extensive documentation and examples of use, multi-language support, and special functions for business needs. The C library is specifically designed so that it can be used stand-alone, without Perl. Version 5.0 features date objects with overloaded operators, and a set of modules for calculations which take legal holidays into account (both in Perl only).

Dead Souls
The Dead Souls MUD Library is a multi-user, text based adventure creation system. It lets you build adventure games which can be played over the Internet simultaneously by many people. It is for both experienced and beginner MUD admins. It includes an easy-to-use creation system.
Deal.II
'deal.II' is a software library that supports finite element computations on adaptive 1d, 2d, and 3d meshes. It comes with mesh handling, supports a large number of finite elements, can input and output in various formats, and has a large collection of support classes. The handling of different space dimensions is hidden behind C++ templates; this lets users treat problems in different space dimensions simultaneously within the same program, and to switch dimensions simply by recompilation. This means users can test their application in 2d, and then run production runs in 3d without having to debug the program again. It comes with full documentation of all APIs and 18 example programs showing how to build finite element programs from simple to very complex. The documentation now runs about 4000 pages.
Debea Database Library
Debea is an Object Relational Mapping library (ORM) for C++. It allows you to map C++ objects to relations in various SQL and file databases.
Decibel

Decibel consists of a desktop neutral policy daemon called Houston and desktop specific components for user interaction.
Deliantra Archetypes
Deliantra is a free software cooperative multiplayer RPG and adventure game, much similar in style (and setting) to nethack and moria, but is fully graphical and runs in realtime. It is set in a classical medieval environment with ubiquitous weapons and magic. What makes this game special is its depth and the sheer amount of maps to explore: The world is vast (multiple continents, over 4000 manually designed maps, hundreds of monsters and countless variations of generated content) and complex (16 unique races, 17 classes, 40 skills and hundreds of spells to choose from and combine with each other), so there is a lot to explore.

The Guarded Memory Move tool is useful for studying buffer overflows and catching them together with a "good" stack image. Once a stack overflow has been exploited, the back trace is already gone, as is information about parameters and local variables that are very important in understanding how the attacker is working out the exploit. The GMM library uses dynamic function call interception to catch the most common functions that attackers use to exploit stack buffers. It uses the LD_PRELOAD capability and offers two services: first, it avoids buffer overflow to allow the attacker to execute shell-code on your machine. Second, where an exploit is detected, it saves the stack content and triggers a segmentation fault. The resulting core dump has the necessary information to debug the exploit and fix the software.

Gnulib Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Gnulib is intended to be the canonical source for most of the important "portability" and/or common files for GNU projects. These are files intended to be shared at the source level; Gnulib is not a library meant to be installed and linked against. Unlike most projects, Gnulib does not normally generate a source tarball distribution; instead, developers should just grab modules directly from the repository. While portability across operating systems is not one of GNU's primary goals, it has helped introduce many people to the GNU system, and is worthwhile when it can be achieved at a low cost. This collection helps lower that cost.
Gnupg Heckert gnu.tiny.png

This package, also known as GPG, is a command line tool with features for easy integration with other applications. A wealth of frontend applications and libraries are available.

Notes

Even if you have nothing to hide, using encryption helps protect the privacy of people you communicate with, and makes life difficult for bulk surveillance systems. If you do have something important to hide, you are in good company; GnuPG is one of the tools that Edward Snowden used to uncover the secrets of the NSA.

See also the Email Self-Defense site to learn how and why you should use GnuPG for your electronic communication.

The set of frameworks, based on Cocoa (previously OpenStep), enables developers to rapidly build sophisticated software by employing a large library of reusable software components. This GUI uses an abstraction layer to talk to the windowing system. It uses the GNUstep back library to handle all of the windowing-system-specific details. It currently works via a DPS emulation engine to emulate the DPS functions required by the front-end system. More recently, a back end based on Cairo was implemented. This is a high-performance 2D graphics library supporting vector and composing operations. Another back-end runs on top of the X Window System and uses only Xlib calls for graphics, but seems deprecated. (There is also a back end supporting the Windows GDI, allowing GNUstep applications to run on Windows)

Harminv
Harminv is a program (and accompanying library) to solve the problem of harmonic inversion. Given a discrete-time, finite-length signal that consists of a sum of finitely-many sinusoids (possibly exponentially decaying) in a given bandwidth, it determines the frequencies, decay constants, amplitudes, and phases of those sinusoids. Harminv can, in principle, provide much better accuracy than straightforwardly extracting FFT peaks because it assumes a specific form for the signal. (Fourier transforms, in contrast, attempt to represent *any* data as a sum of sinusoidal components.) It is also often more robust than directly least-squares fitting the data (which can have problematic convergence). Harminv employs the "filter diagonalization method" (FDM) of Mandelshtam and Taylor.
Hasard

HotSwap
This is a candidate for deletion: Links broken. Email to maintainer broken. Poppy-one (talk) 16:46, 2 August 2018 (EDT) HotSwap provides a robust library for updating the implementation of an object at runtime (aka hotswapping). This is achieved through recompilation, dynamic class reloading, and object state migration throughout the life of an application. Hotswapping makes Java feel more like an interpreted language than a compiled language; it is fundamentally useful for runtime development of an application (application evolution or incremental development).
Hy
Hy is a Lisp front-end to the Python AST / Bytecode. This allows you to use the Python VM just as Clojure uses the Java VM. Hy is special, since not only can Hy invoke Python, but Python can also interop with Hy in a clean way.

ISO Master
ISO Master is a graphical editor for ISO images with support for ISO9660, RockRidge, and Joliet file names. It is useful for extracting, deleting, or adding files and directories to or from an ISO image. It is based on the bkisofs and GTK2 libraries.
ISODate
This module implements ISO 8601 date, time and duration parsing. The implementation follows ISO8601:2004 standard, and implements only date/time representations mentioned in the standard. If something is not mentioned there, then it is treated as non existent, and not as an allowed option. For instance, ISO8601:2004 never mentions 2 digit years. So, it is not intended by this module to support 2 digit years. (while it may still be valid as ISO date, because it is not explicitly forbidden.) Another example is, when no time zone information is given for a time, then it should be interpreted as local time, and not UTC. As this module maps ISO 8601 dates/times to standard Python data types, like date, time, datetime and timedelta, it is not possible to convert all possible ISO 8601 dates/times. For instance, dates before 0001-01-01 are not allowed by the Python date and datetime classes.
IbPy
IbPy is a third-party implementation of the API used for accessing the Interactive Brokers on-line trading system. IbPy implements functionality that the Python programmer can use to connect to IB, request stock ticker data, submit orders for stocks and options, and more.

LibSysCTr intercepts system call functions on a GNU/Linux system. Process monitoring and sandboxing are just two of its potential uses. LibSysCTr uses the ptrace(2) functionalities by monitoring and reporting events to the library caller. LibSysCTr is callback driven, which means the user initializes the library with systr_init_library(), registers the system calls he wants to monitor with systr_trace_syscall(), and calls systr_run() to start receiving events in the form of callback invocation. For each intercepted system call, two calls to the registered callback function are performed: one during the system call entry, before the system call iteself will be executed by the kernel, and one after the kernel has processed the system call (right before returning the userspace). Utility functions are supplied to, retrieve information about the process, get/set the system call parameters, and read/write the monitored process address space.

  • Also known as 'Tacitpixel'.
LibTMCG
LibTMCG is a C++ library for creating secure electronic card games. The most remarkable feature is the absence of a trusted third party (TTP), i.e. neither a central game server nor trusted hardware components are necessary. With the present library there is no need for an independent referee, because the applied protocols provide a basic level of confidentiality and fairness by itself. Consequently, the library is well-suited for peer-to-peer (P2P) environments where no TTP is available. Of course, we cannot avoid that malicious players share information about their private cards, but the protocols ensure that the shuffle of the deck is performed randomly (presumed that at least one player is honest) and thus the cards will be distributed uniformly among the players. Further, no coalition can learn the private cards of a player against his will (except for trivial conclusions). The corresponding cryptographic problem, actually called Mental Poker, has been studied since 1979 by many authors. LibTMCG provides the first practical implementation of such protocols.
LibTPT
TPT is a template scripting language implemented in C++ and designed to be integrated with C++ programs. The TPT interpreter runs in one pass, so there is no expensive compilation stage.

The LibTPT parser transforms TPT templates into text. The parser, which integrates with your C++ code through a simple class API, is small and fast, focusing on functionality instead of rich feature sets. Uses include on-the-fly HTML, source code generation, or in any situation where there is a need to generate customized text.

Libc Heckert gnu.tiny.png
The GNU C Library is the standard C library of the GNU system. It defines the system calls and other basic functionality necessary to write programs in the C language. It handles low-level functionality that communicates with the kernel, such as process and file management, as well as higher-level functionality such as string manipulation or command-line argument handling. In GNU/Linux distributions, the C library works with the Linux kernel to implement the operating system behavior seen by user applications. In GNU Hurd, it works with a microkernel and Hurd servers. The GNU C Library implements much of the POSIX.1 functionality in the GNU system, using configurations i[4567]86-*-gnu. The current Hurd support requires out-of-tree patches that will eventually be incorporated into an official GNU C Library release. It is one of the most important components of the GNU operating system and its variants GNU/Linux. It is used by almost all C programs and provides the most essential program interface.

These library routines greatly simplify the process of writing scripts to make configuration changes and perform common tasks.
Libcomcom
Spawn an OS command with given input and receive its output. The main feature of this library is deadlock avoidance. (Deadlock in this case is when your program can't write to the input of another program because of waiting for its output which does not happen because of no input, so a vicious circle leading to infinite waiting time.) API docs: https://vporton.github.io/libcomcom-docs/ There are also Java and D wrappers. Please help to port it to Windows.
Libcroco

Libcsdbg
Libcsdbg is a C++ exception stack tracer. When an exception is thrown, caught and handled, libcsdbg offers the tools to create and process the exception stack trace, the path the exception has propagated up the call stack, unwinding it, up to the section were it was handled. The traces are detailed with demangled function signatures and additional addr2line info (the source code file and line that each function was called). Libcsdbg will perform flawlessly with single and multi-threaded (or multi-process) programs, with any dynamically linked shared object (DSO - Dynamic Shared Object) and with any statically linked library. Additionally, libcsdbg helps the developer/tester create sophisticated stack traces of any thread, at any given moment during a process execution, as a snapshot of the runtime call graph. This is very useful in cases of fatal errors, reception of terminating signals or process abortion/termination (such as segmentation faults). libcsdbg can use all the well-known objective code file formats (a.out, elf, coff, ecoff, etc.) and can easily be used as the base for your own instrumentation code. libcsdbg transparently loads the symbol tables of the chosen dynamic libraries and of the executable, demangles function symbols to complete signatures, and binds function names to runtime addresses (even for the DSO symbols).

Libffi
The libffi library provides a portable, high level programming interface to various calling conventions. This allows a programmer to call any function specified by a call interface description at run time. FFI stands for Foreign Function Interface. A foreign function interface is the popular name for the interface that allows code written in one language to call code written in another language. The libffi library really only provides the lowest, machine dependent layer of a fully featured foreign function interface. A layer must exist above libffi that handles type conversions for values passed between the two languages.

Libmpeg2
libmpeg2 is a free library for decoding mpeg-2 and mpeg-1 video streams. Its main goals are:
* Conformance - libmpeg2 can decode all mpeg streams that conform to certain restrictions: "constrained parameters" for mpeg-1, and "main profile" for mpeg-2. * Speed - With typical video streams as found on DVD's, and doing only decoding with no display, you should get about 110 fps on a PIII/666, or 150 fps on an Athlon/950. This is less than 20 cycles per output pixel. * Portability - most of the code is in C; even platform-specific optimizations we always have a generic C routine to fall back on. This should be portable to all architectures. * Reuseability - we do not want libmpeg2 to include any project-specific code, but it should still include enough features to be used by very diverse projects.
Libnetdude
'libnetdude' is the packet manipulation backend of the Netdude trace file editing framework.

The most common operations necessary to iterative solvers are available, e.g.: matrix-vector multiplication, triangular solution, rows/columns scaling, diagonal extraction / setting, blocks extraction, norm computation, formats conversion. The RSB format is especially well suited for symmetric and transposed multiplication variants. On these variants, librsb has been found to be faster than Intel MKL's implementation for CSR. Most numerical kernels code is auto generated, and the supported numerical types can be chosen by the user at build time. librsb implements the Sparse BLAS standard, as specified in the BLAS Forum documents.
Librsync
'Librsync' provides checksum-based differencing. Currently its only application is rproxy, which provides diffs to previously cached Web pages and images in order to speed download time.
Libsafe
The exploitation of buffer overflow and format string vulnerabilities in process stacks are a significant portion of security attacks. 'libsafe' is based on a middleware software layer that intercepts all function calls made to library functions known to be vulnerable. A substitute version of the corresponding function implements the original function in a way that ensures that any buffer overflows are contained within the current stack frame, which prevents attackers from overwriting the return address and hijacking the control flow of a running program. The true benefit of using libsafe is protection against future attacks on programs not yet known to be vulnerable. The performance overhead of libsafe is negligible, it does not require changes to the OS, it works with existing binary programs, and it does not need access to the source code of defective programs, or recompilation or off-line processing of binaries.

A CLI application is provided as a reference client implementation. See http://freshmeat.net/projects/qtour/ for a Qt-based client.
Libtranslate
'libtranslate' is a library for translating text and Web pages between natural languages. Its modular infrastructure lets users implement new translation services separately from the core library. It is shipped with a generic module that supports Web-based translation services (ie, BabelFish) and lets new services be added simply by adding a few lines to an XML file. The distribution also includes a command line interface.
Libtrash
'libtrash' is a shared library which, when preloaded, intercepts calls to glibc's unlink() and rather than permanently deleting those files, moves them to a "trash can".

Though the library is written in C a variety of language bindings make it available in other environments. This package (a.k.a. libxml or gnome-xml) implements a number of existing standards related to markup languages, including the XML standard, Namespaces in XML, XML Base, RFC 2396, XPath, XPointer, HTML4, XInclude, SGML Catalogs, and XML Catalogs. In most cases, libxml tries to implement the specifications in a relatively strict way. To some extent, it provides support for the following specifications, but doesn't claim to implement them: DOM, FTP client, HTTP client, SAX, and DocBook SGML. Support for W3C XML Schemas is in progress.

Link Grammar
The Link Grammar Parser is a syntactic parser of English, based on link grammar, an original theory of English syntax. The system assigns to a sentence a syntactic structure, which consists of a set of labeled links connecting pairs of words. The parser also produces a "constituent" representation of a sentence (showing noun phrases, verb phrases, etc.). The parser has a dictionary of about 60000 word forms. It covers a range of syntactic constructions, including many rare and idiomatic ones. The parser skips over the portions of the sentence that it cannot understand, and assigns some structure to the rest of the sentence. It can handle unknown vocabulary, and makes intelligent guesses from context and spelling about the syntactic categories of unknown words. It understands capitalization, numerical expressions, and various punctuation symbols.
LinkGrammar-WN
LinkGrammar-WN is a lexicon expansion for the Link Grammar Parser. The Link Grammar Parser is a syntactic parser of the English language that is capable of handling a wide variety of syntactic constructions and is considered quite robust.

Poppy-one (talk) 15:51, 23 August 2018 (EDT) lm_sensors provides essential drivers for monitoring the temperatures, voltages, and fans of Linux systems containing devices such as the LM78 and LM75. It contains drivers for sensor chips and I2C and SMBus masters. It also contains text-based tools for sensor reporting, and a library for sensors access called 'libsensors'. It also contains tools for sensor hardware identification and I2C bus probing. There is a list of supported drivers on the Web site.
Lobbyists
This package provides a reference parser and database importer for the United States Senate LD-1/LD-2 lobbying disclosure database. The Senate provides the database as a series of XML documents, downloadable here: http://www.senate.gov/legislative/Public_Disclosure/database_download.htm The SQL database schema used by the importer is a direct translation of the XML schema used in the Senate documents. This isn't a particularly useful format for analyzing lobbying data, but it is useful for analyzing the lobbying records themselves, which often contain errors or anomalies. In any case, it shouldn't be too difficult to adapt the importing code in this package to a more useful schema.
Log4c
'Log for C' is a library for flexible logging to files, syslog, and other destinations. It is modeled after the Log for Java library, staying as close to its API as is reasonable.
Loopess
All links broken. Redirected homepage to archive.org. Poppy-one (talk) 17:16, 29 August 2018 (EDT) Loopess is a small signal and select loop library for applications running on POSIX operating systems. It provides a convenient abstraction of signals, file descriptor events, and timeouts for single-threaded applications using a simple C++ class structure. Loopess properly handles the race condition introduced by mixing signals with the select system call. It uses sigsetjmp and siglongjmp to jump out of signals that occur just prior to entering the select call. Otherwise, these signals would not be processed until the next file descriptor event. Jumping out of these signals safely prevents entering into the blocking select system call. As of Feb 29, 2004, development on this project has been discontinued as per the maintainer.
Loudmouth
Loudmouth is a lightweight Jabber client library written in C/Glib.
LuaSocket
LuaSocket is a Lua extension library that is composed by two parts: a C core that provides support for the TCP and UDP transport layers, and a set of Lua modules that add support for functionality commonly needed by applications that deal with the Internet. The core support has been implemented so that it is both efficient and simple to use. It is available to any Lua application once it has been properly initialized by the interpreter in use.
Lzlib
The lzlib compression library provides in-memory LZMA compression and decompression functions, including integrity checking of the uncompressed data. The compressed data format used by the library is the lzip format. The functions and variables forming the interface of the compression library are declared in the file lzlib.h. An usage example of the library is given in the file main.cc. Compression/decompression is done by repeatedly calling a couple of read/write functions until all the data has been processed by the library. This interface is safer and less error prone than the traditional zlib interface.
M1QN3
The routine M1QN3 has been designed to minimize functions depending on a very large number of variables (several hundred million is sometimes possible) not subject to constraints. It implements a limited memory quasi-Newton technique (the L-BFGS method of J. Nocedal) with a dynamically updated scalar or diagonal preconditioner. It uses line-search to enforce global convergence; more precisely, the step-size is determined by the Fletcher-Lemaréchal algorithm and realizes the Wolfe conditions.
MARC Perl
MARC/Perl is a Perl library for reading, manipulating, outputting and converting bibliographic records in the MARC format. However, it is often advantageous for libraries to be able to create or massage pre-existing MARC data on the way into or out-of such systems. This is the niche that MARC/Perl was designed to fill. MARC.pm development began in the summer of 1999. After much experimentation, enhancement and discussion the MARC::Record framework was adopted which provides a scalable approach to processing MARC data with Perl. Users can still download and get documentation for MARC.pm, but it is recommended that new users download MARC::Record. Future development of the MARC namespace on CPAN will be through MARC::Record.

  • Nonlinear rootfinder, to find stationary solutions
  • Eigenvalue determination, for stability analysis
  • Easy time modulation of input parameters
  • Diverse data collecting classes for data analysis
  • Small signal analysis (first order)
MPFI
MPFI (Multiple Precision Floating-Point Interval Library) is a library for arbitrary precision interval arithmetic with intervals represented using MPFR reliable floating-point numbers. It is based on the GNU MP library and on the MPFR library. The purpose of an arbitrary precision interval arithmetic is on the one hand to get guaranteed results, thanks to interval computation, and on the other hand to obtain accurate results, thanks to multiple precision arithmetic. The MPFI library is built upon MPFR to benefit from the correct roundings provided by MPFR, it portability, and its compliance with the IEEE 754 standard for floating-point arithmetic.
MPK
MathParseKit is a C++ Library that allows an easy integration of a mathematical functions interpreter.
MQ4CPP
MQ4CPP (Message Queuing for C++) is an implementation of enterprise messaging system, aka "message-oriented middleware" (MOM). It lets C++ application threads communicate with one another through exchanging messages. A message is a request, report, and/or event that contains information needed to coordinate communication between different applications. It provides a level of abstraction, so you can separate the details about the destination system from the application code. MQ4CCP lets C++ applications that share a messaging system exchange messages, and simplifies application development by providing a standard interface for creating, sending, and receiving messages. It implements the following messaging paradigms: Direct/Indirect messaging (local), unsolicited messaging (remote), Request/Reply (remote), conversation (remote), and broadcast (local/remote).
MQS
MQS (Minimalist Queue Services) is a minimalist queueing system that provides basic methods for offering asynchronous messaging. It lets applications store and retrieve messages to a dedicated queue in the queue services. This avoids direct connections between applications and provides a simple asynchronous communication system. The MQS Daemon provides a simple set of XML-RPC methods for pushing and getting messages in a given queue (you can use the system with any application that can talk XML-RPC). The queue is stored in either a database (e.g. Mysql, Postgresql) or in dedicated file(s) (e.g. QDBM).
MUNTL
'MUNTL' is a multiprecision unsigned number template library. It is intended for the organization of calculations with the big precision for unsigned numbers, ie cases where there are unsigned numbers whose length exceeds the ability of a current platform to handle them. These cases include storage of big numbers (ie factorials) and the operations associated with them, emulation of registers of large length, and indications of errors in position code.
Mailutils Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Mailutils is a collection of programs for managing, viewing and processing electronic mail. It contains both utilities and server daemons and all operate in a protocol-agnostic way. The underlying libraries are also available, simplifying the addition of mail capabilities to new software. Several tools are built atop of these libraries and included in the package. Among them are pop3 and imap4 servers, the traditional mailx mail reader, the sieve mail filtering utility and a complete set of MH utilities that can be used with GNU Emacs MH-E mode.
Mastrave
Mastrave is a free software library written to perform vectorized scientific computing and to be as compatible as possible with both GNU Octave and Matlab computing frameworks, offering general purpose, portable and freely available features for the scientific community. Mastrave is mostly oriented to ease complex modeling tasks such as those typically needed within environmental models, even when involving irregular and heterogeneous data series. Semantic array programming The Mastrave project attempts to allow a more effective, quick interoperability between GNU Octave and Matlab users by using a reasonably well documented wrap around the main incompatibilities between those computing environments and by promoting a reasonably general idiom based on their common, stable syntagms. It also promotes the systematic adoption of data-transformation abstractions and lightweight semantic constraints to enable concise and reliable implementations of models following the paradigm of semantic array programming. There are a couple of underlying ideas: library design is language design and vice versa (Bell labs); language notation is definitely a "tool of thought" (version), in the sense that there is a feedback between programming/mathematical notation and the ability to think new scientific insights. And perhaps ethic ones. Science and society Mastrave is free software, which is software respecting your freedom. As many other free scientific software packages, it is offered to the scientific community to also promote the development of a free society more concerned about cooperation rather than competitiveness, heading toward knowledge and culture freedom. Such a vision implies the possibility for motivated individuals to freely access, review and contribute even to the cutting-edge academic culture. This possibility relies on the development of tools and methodologies helping to overcome economic, organizational and institutional barriers (i.e. knowledge oligopolies) while systematically promoting reproducible research. This is a long-term goal to which the free software paradigm can and has been able to actively cooperate.

Front-end for library is based on OpenGL and GLUT libraries. Also it is possible to draw plot in console regime directly to file (bitmap or vector PostScript) without using X-server. Output graphics (bitmap drawed in memory) is adapted for using with wxWidgets and FLTK libraries.
MathGene
MathGene is a comprehensive JavaScript mathematics engine that delivers the ability to perform advanced numerical and symbolic mathematics processing of LaTeX expressions and send the output to pure HTML for rendering on a conventional web browser or via web server. MathGene has two modules: •mg_translate.js, which translates between LaTeX, HTML, and native MG format. •mg_calculate.js, which performs the calculations. mg_translate.js can be used without mg_calculate.js to perform mathematics rendering only. Both modules are required to perform calculations.
Matjito
"Matjito' is a pluggable library for fast computation of mathematical expressions in C++ programs. Matjito's input can be either expression string with information about mapping of symbols to variables and functions - parser mode, or n-ary tree representing expression - evaluator mode. It is x86 JIT, so it can compute expressions in a really fast way (comparable to or even better than code generated by optimizing C compilers).
MatrixSSL
PeerSec Network's MatrixSSL is an embedded SSL implementation designed for small footprint devices and applications requiring low overhead per connection. The library is less than 50K on disk with full cipher suites. It includes SSL client and SSL server support, session resumption, and implementations of RSA, 3DES, ARC4, SHA1, and MD5. The source is well documented and contains portability layers for additional operating systems, cipher suites, and cryptography providers.
Maverik Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Maverik is a development toolkit that supports 3D virtual environments and interaction with those environments. It sits on top of a low-level rendering engine that uses OpenGL or Mesa, and provides mechanisms to render different kinds of objects, to manage environments and to provide support for 3D interaction. The system is open-ended in how its representation of different models. It uses call back functions, rather than importing and converting data to its own formats; this means it can be adapted relatively easily to widely differing application data structures without forcing particular representations on the implementor. For example, if you have a sim in which different parts of your model are varying dynamically but in ways that cannot be represented using the normal affine transformations (eg deformable objects), then Maverik lets you use the dynamically changing data directly to generate images. It also contains support for a variety of 3D input designs, and various kinds of displays (including stereo).
Maximum Length Sequence (MLS) library
libmls is a system response measurement library that uses a Maximum Sequence Length signal for excellent noise immunity. It allows gated measurements to minimise effects of room reflections. It also allows measurement of electrical systems including impedence vs frequency plots in a single two channel measurement. libmls can also meassure a system response using a swept sine tone.
