Devices for the measurement of signals use different data formats to store the data on disk. libRASCH provides a common application programming interface to access such signals, regardless of which storage format is used. Additionally, it provides support for processing (e.g. detects beats in an ECG) and viewing the signals. This functionality and the access to the various file formats is realized with plugins.
Asymptopia Flashcard System uses Motif and LaTeX to produce, manage, and use attractively formatted flashcards. You load some or all of your "collections" and set the timer for pop-up frequency. The GUI interface and "Collection Manager" make creating and modifying flashcards as simple as pushing a single button. A knowledge of LaTeX is only required when entering special symbols.
Brook for GPUs is a compiler and runtime implementation of the Brook stream programming language for modern graphics hardware. The goals for this project are to demonstrate general purpose programing on GPUs, to provide a useful tool for developers who want to run applications on GPUs, and to research the stream language programming model, streaming applications, and system implementations.
The Finishing Scripts for Cluster Installations handle specific post-installation configuration that might not be convienent nor possible using existing cluster installation methods. The usual installation process is used to build a reasonably configured node, and the system then reboots into normal mode, achieves network visibility, and executes the finishing script. The finishing script handles all of the finer details of installing packaged or non-packaged software, tweaking installation, setting host/net specific parameters/files, etc. It is controlled via a single, easily modified script.
Drugref is a collaborative effort to create and maintain a database of pharmaceutical reference information, tagged by language, country, and reference source. A Web interface written in PHP4 allows the community of health professionals to maintain and review content. The database structure, implemented in PostgreSQL, is designed to facilitate automated decision support. "Tagging" allows one to import information from any source in parallel, thus allowing drugref to work as a generic interface to any kind of (comercially or freely) available drug reference information.
RTLab is an RTLinux/RTAI-based data acquisition and control application. It is designed to help experimenters design and implement their hard realtime control experiements using higher abstractions than the services offered by RTAI or RTLinux. It is split into two parts. One is a user-space series of C++ classes (written for Qt) which implement a reference application called DAQSystem which is designed to acquire analog input voltage data and display it on the screen. DAQSystem communicates with rtlab.o, the realtime kernel module which is the second part of RTLab. The rtlab.o realtime kernel part is a kernel module that loads into RTLinux or RTAI and is responsible for driving COMEDI hardware for the purposes of data acquisition and realtime control. The module is extensible and features a 'plugin' architecture so that scientists who are savvy C programmers can easily leverage the existing framework for their own custom experiment logic. Experiment logic is specified by writing a kernel modules that gets called back for each scan rtlab.o acquires from the COMEDI hardware. In addition, data visualization and storage facilities exist in user space so that experimenters can instantly see graphical plots of their analog input data as it comes in from the hardware.
