Eznet makes setting up PPP for Linux easy. Just enter the name of your ISP, a phone number to dial, the login name, the password and the TTY and eznet takes care of the rest. There are no chat scripts to write, nor any pppd configuration files to fuss over. Eznet handles multiple ISPs and can dialup any of them with a single simple command. It also supports dial-on-demand using either kerneld or diald.
The Lemon program is an LALR(1) parser generator. It takes a context free grammar and converts it into a subroutine that will parse a file using that grammar. Lemon is similar to the much more famous programs "YACC" and "BISON". But lemon is not compatible with either yacc or bison. There are several important differences: Lemon uses a different grammar syntax which is less prone to programming errors. The parser generated by Lemon is both re-entrant and thread-safe. Lemon includes the concept of a non-terminal destructor, which makes it much easier to write a parser that does not leak memory.
The makeheaders program is a simple utility that will automatically generate all the ``.h'' files for large programming project based on information gleaned from the ``.c'' or ``.cpp'' source files. It operates by scanning the C and/or C++ source code, extracting appropriate macros, structure and subroutine declarations and writing this declarations, in the correct order, into the generated header files. The makeheaders program has been used on a variety of projects since 1993. It has proven very helpful in reducing the complexing and improving the reliability of these projects. It is very fast and very easy to use, requiring almost no changes to the coding styles employed by most C or C++ programmers.
Mktclapp is a tool for combining C/C++ code with Tcl/Tk to build a standalone executable that will run on machines without Tcl/Tk installed. Developers can use C/C++ for speed-critical code and Tcl/Tk for the user interface. The resulting sources will compile without change on both Unix and Windows98/NT. Embedded Tcl/Tk scripts can be shrouded so that they are unreadable by end users.
SQLite is a small, fast, embeddable SQL database engine that supports most of SQL92, including transactions with atomic commit and rollback, subqueries, compound queries, triggers, and views. A complete database is stored in a single cross-platform disk file. The native C/C++ API is simple and easy to use. Bindings for other languages are also available.
CVSTrac implements a low-ceremony Web-based bug and patch-set tracking system for use with CVS, Subversion, or GIT. Features include automatic changelog generation, repository change history browsing, user-defined bug database queries, Wiki pages, and Web-based administration of the CVSROOT/passwd file. CVSTrac is a stand-alone C program that operates either as CGI or as its own Web server.
