mtail is a small tail workalike that performs output coloring using ANSI escape sequences (although the sequences are overridable, so you could cause it to output something else, e.g., HTML font tags). It is written in python, is fairly small, and should be relatively platform-independent.
GLE is a library package of C functions that draw extruded surfaces, including surfaces of revolution, sweeps, tubes, polycones, polycylinders and helicoids. Generically, the extruded surface is specified with a 2D polyline that is extruded along a 3D path. A local coordinate system allows for additional flexibility in the primitives drawn. Extrusions may be texture mapped in a variety of ways. The GLE library generates 3D triangle coordinates, lighting normal vectors and texture coordinates as output. GLE uses the GL or OpenGL API's to perform the actual rendering.
gtex-letter attempts to deliver an easy alternative interface to LaTeX-letter. It is heavily configurable, and it supports multiple letter headers and default letter openings (which are configurable in the rc-file). Users can choose from three different levels of graphical interface complexity. Novice is easy to understand, while expert is straight-forward. There is also a non-interactive mode that makes production of standard-letters very fast. gtex-letter is implemented in Python and based on GNOME.
Saxogram is a script which generates vocabulary lists from texts written in foreign languages. So far it has dictionaries for Latin, German, and Italian. Saxogram was written with extensibility in mind. Thus, other languages can be "plugged in" as modules. All that is needed is a dictionary and a small amount of code. The purpose of the program is to speed up language learning. Too much time is spent looking up every third word. This isn't practical when learning a new language. Generating a vocabulary list that can be used in parallel to ones reading is helpful.
pynfs consists of several Python tools for NFSv4. rpc.py is an enhanced version of the rpc.py program distributed with Python. rpcgen.py is an RPC protocol compiler. nfs4lib.py is an NFS4 library for Python. nfs4client.py is a NFS4 commandline client. nfs4st.py is a server test application.
fd2python creates a python interface to the Xforms graphics library. It uses SWIG 1.3 to construct the interface specification. It can output template main code, template callback code, and a template makefile. Additionally, it can be invoked seamlessly when running 'fdesign -python'.
