This package contains frontends to SANE ("Scanner Access Now Easy"), including xscanimage, xcam, and scanadf. Xscanimage is a GTK-based application for scanning images that can also be used as a GIMP-plugin. Xcam is used to get images from cameras supported by SANE. Scanadf is a command line frontend especially suited for scanners equipped with automatic document feeders (ADF).
Screen-shooter is a Gnome applet which sits on your panel and allows you to take screenshots at the click of a button. By acting as a frontend to the import program supplied by ImageMagick, it uses the power therein to provide support for a gazillion file-types with adjustable compression. Two buttons are provided, one for an entire desktop screenshot, and one for selecting individual windows or dragging to select rectangular areas. It also supports command substitution in filenames (for date stamps, etc) and has a number of further options. Screen-shooter is still under development, but version 0.8.2 is believed to be stable.
SDPSL provides tools for discovering a RenderMan shader's arguments at runtime in a render-engine neutral way, either with external, per-shader XML metafiles, or by parsing a shader's source directly. This significantly simplifies the development of render-engine-neutral 3D graphics tools, by eliminating linking to multiple, proprietary parsing libraries (such as libslcargs.a for BMRT, libsloargs.a for PRMan, etc.) It also allows a shader author to communicate a much richer set of data to modelling apps in a standardized way. For example, a shader metafile can specify that a string argument is intended for use as a texture; a modelling app can use this information to adjust its UI accordingly.
Sgraph is a utility to create graphs from data supplied by the user. It creates standard stock charts, using open/min/max/close and volume data. Another goal is to create a set of functions that can serve as a static library, to interface with your stock data manipulation routines.
Siag Office is a free office package which consists of the spreadsheet Siag, the word processor PW, the animation program Egon, the text editor XedPlus, the file manager Xfiler and the previewer Gvu. Siag is easy to use, yet infinitely flexible through multiple embedded interpreters and a plugin mechanism that allows other programs to run inside the main document. The supported interpreters are SIOD, Guile, Tcl, and Python.
Sketch is a vector drawing program similar to CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator. It is written almost completely in Python with some modules written in C, combining the flexibility and power of Python with the speed of C. Advanced features include gradient fills, clip masks, text along a path, blend groups, convert text to curves, and more.
