The 5DT Data Glove driver provides access to the 5DT range of data gloves at an intermediate level. Features include multiple instances, easy initialization and shutdown, raw or scaled (auto-calibrated) sensor values, calibration functions, basic gesture recognition, and a cross-platform application programming interface.
AccuRev is a fast, powerful, and easy-to-use Software Configuration Management (SCM) tool with integrated issue tracking based on "Streams" that more efficiently manages complex parallel and global development. Streams are a combination and superset of branches and labels that are first class objects instead of being file-by-file attributes. AccuRev records all merges and patches, so you never have to re-merge the same code. It supports file and directory renaming and merging, follows a client/server model, and is transaction-based. It includes an integrated graphical 3-way diff and merge tool. AccuRev provides an Open API (and SDK) to integrate with any third-party development tool (IBM/Rational ClearQuest, Serena TeamTrack, and more out of the box). It also integrates with Eclipse, the MS SCC API (MS Visual Studio), Sun Java Studio, any diff/merge tool with a command line interface, and more.
The ADAPTIVE Communication Environment (ACE) is an object-oriented (OO) C++ framework that helps you develop and deploy high-performance networked applications faster and with less code to write and maintain. ACE is especially useful for systems that use network and/or inter-process communications and that take advantage of multithreading. While the ACE source code is free, that's not the only way you save money with ACE. ACE's wrappers and higher-level patterns help you develop your software quickly and portably, helping you to complete your projects on time and within budget.
ActivePerl is the industry-standard Perl distribution, available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX. Complete and ready-to-install, the ActivePerl distribution includes core Perl, popular modules, the Perl Package Manager (PPM), and complete documentation. The Windows version provides additional features that have made ActivePerl the worldwide standard for Perl on Windows.
ActivePython is the industry-standard Python distribution, available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX. It is 100% compatible with the reference distribution of Python. Code tested with ActivePython will run on any Python installation that has the appropriate extensions installed.
Adflib is a free, portable, open and documented implementation of the Amiga filesystem. ADFlib and the related documentation ADF FAQ allow you to easily access media formatted with the Amiga filesystem from your application. This C library is delivered with a little utility like unZip, but for ADF dump files created with UAE, the amiga emulator. The ADF FAQ explains in details the Amiga filesystem.
adns is a replacement resolver library. Its programming interface is at once easier to use and more powerful than the standard libresolv. For example, responses are automatically decoded into native C formats, and it is possible to launch many queries and once and deal with the responses asynchronously.
The Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is both a reference and a tutorial on shell scripting. This comprehensive book, the equivalent of 1,032 print pages, covers almost every aspect of shell scripting. It contains 382 profusely commented illustrative examples, a number of tables, and a cross-linked index/glossary. Not just a shell scripting tutorial, this book also provides an introduction to basic programming techniques, such as sorting and recursion. Included scripts are the Game of Life, a Perquackey variant, a Morse code trainer, and an implementation of the Gronsfeld Cipher. This book is suited for both individual study and classroom use. It covers Bash, up to and including version 4.2. Note that users of miniaturized single-board computers running Linux, such as the Raspberry Pi and the Beagle Bone, would find this Guide useful for learning and running Bash scripts to explore and expand the capabilities of these small, but powerful machines.
