Electric Fence V2.1
Electric Fence Memory Debugger for OpenVMS

Electric Fence (or eFence) is a memory debugger written by Bruce Perens. It consists of a library which programmers can link into their code to override the C standard library memory management functions. eFence triggers a program crash when the memory error occurs, so a debugger can be used to inspect the code that caused the error.


fgrep V1.1
GNU fgrep (file search and replace) for OpenVMS

FLEX V2.5.4
fast lexical analyzer generator for OpenVMS. flex is a tool for generating scanners: programs which recognized lexical patterns in text.flex reads the given input files, or its standard input if no file names are given, for a description of a scanner to generate. The description is in the form of pairs of regular expressions and C code, called rules. flex generates as output a C source file, lex.yy.c, which defines a routine yylex(). This file is compiled and linked with the -lfl library to produce an executable. When the executable is run, it analyzes its input for occurrences of the regular expressions.Whenever it finds one, it executes the corresponding C code.

FreeType V2.1.4
the FreeType Font Engine Libary for TrueType Fonts. FreeType is a Free font engine library for TrueType fonts used by several softwa re packages, including Python.

It borrows much of its syntax from multiple other languages, and is one of the most popular and widely used programming languages today. Tk is a GUI toolkit developed by John Ousterhout, initially as a Tcl extension, to facilitate the creation of graphical user interfaces. Since then, it has grown in popularity, and as a result has been ported to many different languages. Nick Ing-Simmons ported Tk to Perl, giving us Perl/Tk.
