<p>SWIG is a software development tool that connects programs written in C
and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages.  SWIG is used
with different types of languages including common scripting languages
such as Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl and Ruby. The list of supported languages
also includes C&#35;, Java, Lua, Octave and R amongst others. 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.</p>

<h2><a href="">Teaching Open Source</a></h2>

<p>Teaching Open Source (TOS) exists to support instructors and FLOSS community
members who desire to support student involvement in FLOSS projects
within academic institutions.  The TOS community is supported by a web
site, mailing list, and planet and welcomes new community members from
both academia and FLOSS projects.</p>

<h2><a href="">Twisted</a></h2>
<p>Twisted is an event-based engine for Internet applications, written in
Python. Twisted supports TCP, SSL and TLS, UDP, Unix sockets, multicast,
and serial ports. It also includes a Web server, an SMTP/POP3 server, a
telnet server, an SSH server, an IRC server, a DNS server, and of course
APIs for creating new protocols. It supports integration with GTK+ 2, Qt,
Tkinter, wxPython, Mac OS X (PyObjC) and Win32 event loops.</p>

<h2><a href="">uCLibc</a></h2>

<p>uClibc (pronounced yew-see-lib-see) is a C library
for developing embedded Linux systems. It is much smaller than the GNU
C Library, but nearly all applications supported by glibc also work
perfectly with uClibc. Porting applications from glibc to uClibc
typically involves just recompiling the source code. uClibc even
supports shared libraries and threading. It currently runs on standard
Linux and MMU-less (also known as uClinux) systems with support for
alpha, ARM, cris, i386, i960, h8300, m68k, mips/mipsel, PowerPC, SH,
SPARC, and v850 processors.</p>

<h2><a href="">Wine</a></h2>

<p>Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of
X and Unix.  It is a compatibility layer for running Windows
programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a
completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API
consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use
native Windows DLLs if they are available. Wine provides both a
development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as
a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on
x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris</p>
