MUSCLE (Multi User Server Client Linking Environment) is an N-way messaging server and networking API. It includes client-side networking APIs for various languages, including C, C++, C#, Delphi, Java, and Python. MUSCLE lets programs communicate over a network via streams of serialized Message objects. The included server program ("muscled") lets its clients message each other and store information in its server-side hierarchical database. The database supports flexible queries via hierarchical wildcarding, and "live" updates via a subscription mechanism.
AudioMove is a handy GUI-based batch audio file converter/copier program. It can convert various audio file formats to WAV or AIFF format (using libsndfile), and do high-quality sample-rate conversion at the same time (using libsamplerate). It is multi-threaded for maximum throughput, can handle thousands of files per batch, and does recursive directory scans.
oscjoy is a simple command line program that lets you use any connected joysticks as OpenSoundControl devices. Whenever the state of a connected joystick changes, oscjoy will send UDP packets with OpenSoundControl messages in them to the specified IP address and port. The oscjoy archive includes source code and binaries for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows XP.
audio_combine is a simple utility for combining multiple audio files together into larger multi-channel files. For example, if you have 2 mono WAV files and you want a single stereo WAV file, you can use audio_combine to accomplish this. Also included is audio_split, which does the reverse operation: given a single multi-channel audio file, it generates multiple mono audio files.
This program would be just the ticket for getting more mileage
out of my embedded PowerPC linux card's flash ram storage...
but it appears that PowerPC executables are not supported. Any
chance of support for PowerPC executables being added soon?
(my project uses the 2.4 kernel, fwiw)
