  • SSWF is a scripting language and a library to create Macromedia Flash files. It has been downloaded more than 48,000 times on SourceForge and was ported on FreeBSD and Gentoo without me being involved. It works on pretty much all the Linux platforms (RedHat, Debian, Suse, Power on Linux, z-Series, etc.,) under Windows and under Mac OS/X. odbcpp is a C++ library that wraps the MS-Windows ODBC API that works under Unices and Windows. It is very practical to access databases without having to know anything about the specific database being accessed. I'm also part of the gnuwin32 team since the sswf and edll projects are part of the gnuwin32 list of downloadable projects.
