Drone is a system for automatically running simulation programs in batch mode, either on an arbitrary number of Internet hosts or on a single computer. It allows sweeps over arbitrary sets of parameters, as well as multiple runs for each parameter set, with a separate random seed for each run. It also includes a number of features to help with simulation record keeping, archiving, statistical validation, and replication.
DiaCanvas is a generalized version of the drawing canvas used by DIA. It extends some features used by DIA and adds new ones, while preserving as many of the original features as possible. This project is no longer actively maintained. It is suggested that you try DiaCanvas2 instead.
distributed.net is a loosely knit group of computer users from all of the world that is taking up challenges requiring lots of computing power (most notably the RC5, DES, and OGR cracking contests). It is simple to participate in the challenges by downloading and running their client software (which uses idle CPU time to complete its tasks).
The Clusutils package contains programs to assist researchers in their study of data clustering problems and algorithms. The clusgen program generates artificial data sets. The cluscomp program compares partitions of a data set, and returns an index (between plus/minus 1) which is a measure of the correspondence of the partitions with each other.
CMVision is a real-time color classification and segmentation library which can track up to 256 colors in a 640x480 30fps video stream. The vision system core is a C++ library which is easily extensible for custom applications, and should compile on any *nix compatible environment. Also provided is a video capture library for Video4Linux II.
Ciao is a complete Prolog system subsuming ISO-Prolog with a novel modular design which allows both restricting and extending the language. Ciao extensions currently include feature terms (records), higher-order, functions, constraints, objects, persistent predicates, a good base for distributed execution (agents), and concurrency. Libraries also support WWW programming, sockets, and external interfaces (C, Java, TCL/Tk, relational databases, etc.). An Emacs-based environment, a stand-alone compiler, and a toplevel shell are also provided.
Cinderella is an interactive geometry software written completely in Java(R). This is important for people who want to move from "other" operating systems to Linux, but have to use geometry software in education, like teachers. Additional features are a seamless web export of constructions and the possibility to create self-checking exercises. A free demo is available for download. The demo has a 15 minutes time limit per session.
