This release is based on the Unix port of beta release 2 of BYTE Magazine's BYTEmark benchmark program (previously known as BYTE's Native Mode Benchmarks). The port to Linux/Unix was done by Uwe F. Mayer. Additional changes to the code were made to make the code work with egcs compiler and to make the software packagable. This is a CPU benchmark providing indexes for integer, floating, and memory performance. It is single-threaded and is not designed to measure the performance gain on multi-processor machines.
Ncohafmuta is a text-based chat server that is designed for access from a telnet client. Its purpose is to allow users to communicate in a configurable environment in realtime. It allows users to create accounts with their own settings and optional personal information. Rooms are the basis for communication, whether private or public. Other features include internal email, email forwarding, a configure script for multiple Unices, support for cygwin under Win32, macros, games, a ranking system with access to more commands, ANSI coloring, banning, async DNS, soft/hot-rebooting, detailed, organized logging, and an internal Web server port.
Nets is a flexible and extensible network inventory and asset management system that works on all Unix and Windows platforms, and works with most SQL databases. Its complete GUI allows you to maintain details of your entire network, from network links down to interfaces and routers. It assists in provisioning, costing, reporting, and maintaining network details. It includes a network browser, an extension API, and plugins for IP address map visualisation, reports, schematics.
Npasswd is a replacement for the passwd command for UNIX. It subjects user passwords to stringent guessability checks to decrease the chance of users choosing vulnerable passwords. It addresses other deficiencies found of standard password change programs. Npasswd is designed to replace the programs passwd, chfn and chsh.
OOMPI is an object-oriented interface to the MPI message passing library standard. It is used at a much higher level than the standard MPI C++ bindings, providing a full class library that takes advantage of many C++/object oriented abstractions for message passing. It is a thin layer that runs over any MPI-1.1 compliant C implementation.
Oberon2 is a simple and safe object-oriented language created by N.Wirth, the author of Pascal and Modula2. It is statically strongly typed and has garbage collection. Most of good ideas incorporated in design of Java were in Oberon2 long before. OOC is an open source project to produce a family of optimizing Oberon2 compilers. The compiler with an ANSI C back-end, oo2c, is quite mature, and provides a complete and convenient Oberon2 development environment. It comes with a rather comprehensive standard library, Code Navigator, and an Emacs mode. It is easy to call C functions and libraries from Oberon2.
