Rbmhshow seeks to provide an efficient and lightweight MIME- capable command-line MH mail environment, leveraging existing applications wherever possible. It is a flexible alternative to the standard MH mhl and mhshow applications. MIME messages are displayed in a single continuous less session, with non-plaintext components (e.g. HTML, Word, JPEG) converted to text by the appropriate utility. PGP and S/ MIME signatures are automatically validated, headers and separators are coloured, and the less prompt displays information about the current mail. Command keys are then provided within less to perform common operations, such as replying to, refiling or deleting mail, moving to the next message, etc.
Unicorn is a Unix and LAN/localhost-optimized fork of the Mongrel HTTP server. It takes full advantage of functionality exclusive to Unix-like operating systems. It will reap and restart workers that die from broken apps, and there is no need to manage multiple processes yourself. Load balancing is done entirely by the operating system kernel. Requests never pile up behind a busy worker. The server does not care if your application is thread-safe or not, as workers all run within their own isolated address space and only serve one client at a time. All Rack applications are supported along with pre-Rack versions of Ruby on Rails via a Rack wrapper. It also supports atomic log cycling, nginx-style binary re-execution without losing connections, before_fork and after_fork hooks, and optional copy-on-write-friendly memory management.
hanjadic is a program that displays Chinese-based Korean characters ("hanja"), their Korean pronunciations, Korean and English definitions, their radicals, and related Korean vocabulary derived from the Chinese. There are four ways to search in hanjadic: English, character sound, character compounds (words composed of multiple characters), and by character. Despite its name, it probably isn't that good as a dictionary and is better suited as a Korean etymology and vocabulary-building tool, though it is also designed to show the beauty of traditional Chinese characters.
GARP (Gnome ARP) is an ARP monitoring program written on Gnome with the GTK toolkit and Ruby. It takes ARP tables and some system variables via SNMP and ARP protocols and determines whether any machines have changed their IP address. It is useful for detecting new machines on the network and detecting which machine have changed addresses. It is intended especially for network admins.
ProcPile is a pure Ruby distributed computing cluster environment. Its goal is to allow fast prototyping on smaller datasets, especially those where serialization and deserialization are minor expenses relative to the core processing task. Once the algorithms are settled, you should be able to scale out to full production usage. At that point, you can replace the core processes with Ruby modules written in C (or Inline::C), or move the design to a more "grown-up" clustering environment.
FeResPost is a library that allows the rapid development of small programs for the post-processing of Nastran or Samcef finite element results. The library allows easy manipulation of finite element models, groups, and results. Efficient post-processing is possible because the time-consuming operations are written in C/C++. The library is distributed as a COM component, a .NET assembly, as well as a Ruby compiled extension.
