The Better String Library is an abstraction of a string data type which is superior to the C library char buffer string type and C++'s std::string. Among the features achieved are substantial mitigation of buffer overflow/overrun problems and other failures that result from erroneous usage of the common C string library functions, significantly simplified string manipulation, high performance interoperability with other libraries that expect '\0' terminated buffers, high performance common string operations, and functional equivalency with other more modern languages.
Big Fraction is a Java class that represents an immutable fraction, as held in a numerator and denominator. Calculations may be performed on this fraction, but the value is always held as a numerator/denominator pair. Therefore, no precision is lost. The fraction may be top-heavy, but is reduced when printed. The value can be converted into floats if desired, although precision will invariably be lost, and some large fractions (such as calculations for pi) can not be converted if the values of BigInteger exceed the range capable of floats.
BigDaddy is a program for monitoring servers. It is similar to Nagios, with the added benefit of also monitoring and controlling the crontab (or any scheduled application) across an entire fleet of servers. The application comes in the form of a daemon for monitoring and reporting as well as an easy-to-use Web-based GUI for controlling monitoring, viewing timelines of incidents, filing incidents and graphing statistics. The application is extensible with any sort of monitoring module and notification is based on a five step escalation process.
The BioAPI Specification is intended to provide a high-level generic biometric authentication model, one suited for any form of biometric technology. It covers the basic functions of Enrollment, Verification, and Identification, and includes a database interface to allow a biometric service provider (BSP) to manage the Identification population for optimum performance. It also provides primitives that allow the application to manage the capture of samples on a client, and the Enrollment, Verification, and Identification on a server. This is the reference implementation of the standard.
Biomechanical ToolKit (BTK) is a cross-platform library for biomechanical analysis. It can read and write a large variety of file formats used in biomechanics, and can modify them. All these operations can be done with the C++ API or with the wrappers included (Python, Octave, and Matlab). The goal of this project is to help the community share data without the restriction of the file format or the biomecanical model provided by the manufacturer of the acquisition system.
Blitz is an open source JavaSpaces implementation designed to ease development and deployment of JavaSpaces technology. It is Jini 2.0 enabled, and uses established VM principles. It also implements smart indexing, tuneable persistence, and active/passive lease cleanup. It is designed with experimentation and expansion in mind.
