a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.

ExtConvLinks is a PHP class that can be used to convert URLs in text to links using Bit.ly. It can parse a text to find HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and FTPS links. The class sends requests to the Bit.ly Web services API to convert the URLs that it finds into HTML links using the Bit.ly URLs.
GNU Recutils is a set of tools and libraries to access human-editable text-based databases called recfiles. A recfile contains data structured as a sequence of records. The rec format supports data integrity with the usage of record descriptors (keys, mandatory fields, field types, etc.) as well as the ability of record fields to refer to other records. Despite its simplicity, recfiles can be used to store medium-sized databases. The GNU recutils suite comprises a texinfo manual describing the Rec format, a C library (librec) providing a rich set of functions to access rec files, a set of C utilities that can be used in shell scripts and in the command line to operate on rec files, and an Emacs mode (rec-mode).
Gideros TextWrap provides multi-line text field creation for Gideros Mobile. It splits strings into multiple lines with a given width. You can also specify line spacing and alignment modes (left, right, center, and justify). Gideros TextWrap is completely compatible with existing TextField object methods.
Highlighter JS is an object that highlights words in HTML pages. It searches for words inside given HTML page elements and encloses them within HTML tags to make the words appear differently. The search can optionally be case sensitive. The enclosing tags may have configurable CSS styles or custom handlers for click, mouseover, and mouseout events.
Japplis Toolbox is a compilation of text utilities in one application. It can encode and decode URL, Base64, Hex, SoundEx, or Metaphone. It can convert numbers from/to binary, octal, decimal, and hexadecimal, and to date. It gives you text information such as character count, word count, MD5, or SHA. You can get Java system properties, environment variables, or Swing default values. It checks and finds regular expressions. It can also manipulate lines of text by sorting, reversing, shuffling, deleting duplicates, trimming spaces, or numbering lines.
Light source is an object which can apply a shadow to page elements based on the position of a light. It takes the identifier of a page element and changes its CSS atttributes which define shadow parameters depending on the position of a light source relative to the target element and its children elements. The shadow can be generated either with the shape of the text elements or the whole box of the target element.
