Software [ Back to Top ]
- xbox: a sandbox for untrusted X applications. It has a small footprint and is reasonably efficient. It is intended to be used in conjunction with a syscall-level confining box such as Janus (from UC Berkeley) or mapbox (from UC Santa Barbara). Currently, runs on Solaris 5.6.
- Parallel I/O-intensive applications. Currently, source for one application, Sparse Cholesky factorization, is available.
- sml2c. A portable implementation of SML with call/cc, threads and signals (uses C as the target language)
- CParaOPS5. A portable parallel OPS5 implementation (uses C as the target language). Manual
