JKhepera is a Java class library for Khepera mini robots. It includes a class which allows you to open connections from a host computer to the Khepera robot via a serial interface easily. Communication between Khepera and a computer is also simple, using methods like "setSpeed" or "readProximitySensors". In addition, there are GUI classes to display the whole communication for debugging purposes and to control the robot manually.
UFOClock draws an astronomical clock. From it you can read the time of day, phase of the lunar month, ratio of day to night, time until a solstice or equinox, and time until the end or beginning of twilight. The time of day depends on your location on the surface of the Earth, which you can enter on the command line or in a dotfile in your home directory. Location can be given as latitude/longitude or ZIP code. It is called UFO clock because it sort of looks like crop circles. It is based on Sundial by George Williams. It requires GLUT installed to run and the NOVAS library to build.
MuGeN is a package for interactively exploring multiple annotated genomes simultaneously, possibly mixed with computational analysis results. Map information can be loaded from various sources, and resulting images can be exported in different formats. Both an interactive GUI based environment and a batch mode program are provided.
PortableCBL is an open C implementation of the proprietary Cray Bioinformatics Library. High Performance is achieved by low level bit operations on compressed data whenever possible. It is designed to run on a wide variety of platforms in either 32- or 64-bit mode, on either big or little endian architectures.
The Aglets Software Development Kit (ASDK) is a framework and environment for developing and running mobile agents. Mobile Agents are a type of software agent that have the unique ability to transport themselves from one system to another. Doing so, an agent can start its execution on one host in a network, and then, while still executing, migrate to another host. The Aglets Software Development Kit (ASDK) comes with a complete server, called Tahiti, that hosts the running agents, a comlete library for building mobile agents and a set of prebuilt examples along with the documentation.
