gscan2pdf is a GUI to ease the process of producing PDFs from scanned documents. You scan in one or several pages and create a PDF of selected pages. Scanning is handled with SANE via scanimage. PDF conversion is done by PDF::API2. Perl is used for portability and ease of programming, with gtk2-perl for the GUI.
Garbure is a collection of dedicated distributions. Each distribution provides carefully selected tools for a specific target domain, and is completed with examples and documentation. The set of distributions forms an entity, but each distribution works also on its own. All elements are arranged in the same way for each distribution.
Signsrch is a tool that searches for signatures inside raw files and executables. It can recognize a large number of compression, multimedia, and encryption algorithms and many other things like known strings and portions of anti-debugging code. Definitions can be manually added, since they are based on an ease-to-modify text signature file that is read at runtime. It also supports the scanning of processes, conversion of executable memory offsets, 8, 16, 32 and 64 bits, float and double, plus automatic CRC table creation and C style strings.
FormReturn is OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) software that has many features and is easy to use. It gives anyone the ability to design printable forms and distribute, capture, and automatically grade/analyze handwritten multiple choice response information instantly. All you need is the FormReturn Application, a printer, and a document scanner, and you can process hundreds of forms within minutes.
DynaBlast is a fast Apache HTTPD access_log scanner. It can find hosts that exceed a given number of hits in a given time period, printing them to standard output. It has a "fast mode" that can skip lines that have already been parsed. Multiple dynablast instances are avoided by using a lock file. This make it suitable for crontab usage. It can be run by any user, not just root. It can run in parallel, for example, when analyzing different access_log files. It keeps memory consumption down to about 10 kb, by parsing the access_log file one line at a time.
SANE stands for "Scanner Access Now Easy" and is an application programming interface (API) that provides standardized access to any raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, handheld scanner, video and still cameras, framegrabbers, etc.). The SANE standard is public domain and its discussion and development are open to everybody. The source code is written for UNIX (including Linux) and is available under the GPL, but commercial applications and backends are welcome. The package contains the libraries, net support, and scanimage. The X frontends xscanimage and xcam can be found in sane-frontends.
ExactScan is a versatile document capture application for home offices and workgroups. It is designed from the ground up for high-speed document scanners and can easily handle hundreds of images per minute, including duplex scans. Included functionality reaches from managing, sorting, and editing singles pages to writing multi- as well as single-page PDF files including JPEG compression and TIFF, JPEG, JPEG2000, and PNG bitmap files. ExactScan allows performing state of the art image processing including automatic cropping, deskewing, dynamic thresholding for perfect black and white documents, and descreening print rasters.
