Poezio is a console-based client for XMPP, the protocol on which the Jabber IM network is built. Its goal is to let you connect to the network very easily (without having to create an account) and join various chatrooms immediately. It tries to look like the most famous IRC clients (such as weechat and irssi). Many commands are identical and you won't be lost if you already know these clients. Configuration can be done in a configuration file or directly from the client. It embodies the light, fast, geeky, and anonymous spirit of IRC while using a new, powerful, standard, and open protocol.
This is a simple command-line utilitiy to convert images from TIFF to PNG format. It is primarily useful in dealing with TIFF images that contain alpha channels (transparency information), since the NetPBM suite is (currently) ill-suited for such conversions. A few test images are included.
Fqutils provides a basic set of bioinformatics command line tools for working with sequence data in FASTQ format. It complements Greg Hannon's fine Fastx Toolkit suite. One characteristic of Fqutils is that it correctly handles the full FASTQ format as described by the published standard, which specifically allows multi-line sequence and quality score information per record. Fqutils is intended to be useful as part of the early portions of post-sequencing pipelines and quality assessment processes.
libHaru is a library for generating PDF files. It supports generating PDF files with lines, text, images, outlines, text annotations, and link annotations, compressing a document with deflate-decode, embedding PNG and JPEG images, embedding Type1 and TrueType fonts, creating encrypted PDF files, using various character sets, using CJK fonts and encodings, and basic U3D usage.
IrrXML is a high speed and easy-to-use XML parser without external dependencies. It is very small and provides forward- only, read-only access to a stream of non-validated XML data through an extensible object oriented interface. It ideally fits into realtime projects which need to read XML data without overhead, like games.
CFL (Compressed File Library) is meant for the save-files used by games, and other sorts of data files. Its features include pluggable class factories, easy CFL file creation at runtime, and the ability to have multiple separate CFL objects in memory at the same time. The package also includes a CFL testing tool to make it easier to port the library and to create additional plug-in compressors, preprocessors, and ciphers. It also includes a makecfl utility, which makes it easy to create ini files.
