CTA++ is a tool for unit testing C++ classes, libraries, and subsystems. It is easy to use and provides very powerful features, helping the tester to build the testing environments and running the tests on C++ code. The testing process becomes efficient, visible, and organized, as required in a professional testing environment.
BX/XIK automates the integration of Sitraka's (formerly KL Group) Motif based XRT widgets into Builder Xcessory PRO. After installing the XRT Integration Kit, the XRT widgets will appear on the BX PRO palette and can be "dragged-and-dropped" to create a sophisticated Motif-based user interface.
EGO is a program to perform molecular dynamics simulations on parallel as well as on sequential computers. Supported parallel machines include the Hitachi SR8000, CRAY-T3E, IBM-SP2, Fujitsu VPP700, Parsytec-CC under PARIX, and inhomogeneous clusters of UNIX workstations under PVM or MPI. EGO also runs sequentially on any decent UNIX workstation, even Windows95/NT PC's (with a GNU-C compiler) can be used.
The file check daemon monitors files according to rules defined in configuration files. When a file is considered stable (due to its age, presence of a flag file, etc.) then it gets copied to a new location. Rotating backups of the destination file can be made and owner, group and permissions can be specified for the destination. Some examples of where this utility has been found to be useful are: Moving files out of an incoming FTP directory in a timely manner. Moving files uploaded to a web server into directories with different user/group. This lets the administrator run the web server as a non-root user and accept uploads using web server based authentication and then move the files to a more secure area after the transfer. The details of how to determine whether a file is stable and what to do with it once it is are defined in a "Filespec" configuration file. There is a separate filespec for each file that will be monitored which means that each file can have unique behavior associated with it.
popexec is a program for Unix/Linux which checks a POP e-mail account and then runs a program whenever new e-mail arrives. It can also optionally run a program when it sees that you no longer have new e-mail in your POP box. Examples are included which show you how to: Write "You have mail" or "You have X new messages" to a terminal, make a terminal beep, play an audio file, pop an X window onto the screen, make your keyboard LEDs blink, change your desktop background.
tal aligns common characters at the ends of lines. This is especially useful for making long C macro definitions look nice or for repairing "broken" comment boxes. tal works on any kind of common ending, which it autodetects. Intended as, but not limited to being, a filter program ("plug-in") for text editors.
vines draws vines (wandering plants made up mostly of stems and leaves) on your X11 or SunView screen. By default it draws in black and white, but color options (spring and fall) are provided. The vines can grow across the top of your screen and down the side, down from the top of your screen until they reach the bottom, or start from the center and wander all over the screen forever.
