SWIG is a software development tool that connects programs written in C and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages. SWIG is primarily used with common scripting languages such as Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl/Tk, and Ruby, however the list of supported languages also includes non-scripting languages such as C#, Common Lisp (CLISP, Allegro CL, UFFI), Java, Modula-3, OCAML, Octave, and R. Also several interpreted and compiled Scheme implementations (Guile, MzScheme, Chicken) are supported. SWIG is most commonly used to create high-level interpreted or compiled programming environments, user interfaces, and as a tool for testing and prototyping C/C++ software. SWIG can also export its parse tree in the form of XML and Lisp s-expressions.
GraphicsMagick is a robust collection of tools and libraries which support reading, writing, and manipulating an image in over 90 major formats including popular formats like DPX, DICOM, BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PNG, PNM, SVG, and TIFF. A high-quality 2D renderer is included, which provides a subset of SVG capabilities. C, C++, Perl, Tcl, and Ruby are supported. Originally based on ImageMagick, GraphicsMagick focuses on performance, minimizing bugs, and providing stable APIs and ABIs. It runs on all modern variants of Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X.
Lua-Sqlite3 is a binding of SQLite 3 for Lua. It is unique in contrast to other database bindings that it consists of two layers. The first layer translates the SQLite 3 implementation's C API to Lua. The second layers are interface layers, written in Lua. These layers provide a nice and smart view of the database.
TacitPixel (formerly libTAP ) is a prototyping system for virtual reality and augmented reality applications. It runs on a variety of platforms. RAP (rapid application prototyping) is done through the Lua interface, which mirrors the C++ namespace as closely as possible. libTAP has a small but distinctive feature set, focused on prototyping of realtime 3D simulations.
TEKlib is a library and operating system effort. It runs hosted on platforms such as Unix and Windows. It can serve as a freestanding operating system on architectures such as the Playstation 2. It is also a middleware that provides a constistent interface across all hosting environments. Its freestanding nature, small footprint, and absence of global data recommend it as a layer for portability and code reuse in heterogeneous environments.
