DUMA (Detect Unintended Memory Access) is a multi-platform memory debugging library. It can detect memory leaks and buffer overruns (or underruns) in a malloc() / new memory buffer. DUMA is a fork of Bruce Perens' Electric Fence library.
libivykis is a thin wrapper over various OS'es implementation of I/O readiness notification facilities (such as poll(2), kqueue(2)) and is mainly intended for writing portable high-performance network servers.
Judy is a general purpose dynamic array implemented as a C callable library. Judy's speed and memory usage are typically better than other data storage models and improves with very large data sets.
Generator of lexical analyzers in C and C++. Unicode Supported.
The goal of this project is to provide a generator for lexical analyzers of maximum computational efficiency and maximum range of applications. This includes the support for Unicode (UTF8, UTF16, ...) and other codecs directly and via nested converters such as ICU(tm) and IConv. Sophisticated buffer handling allows to operate on plain file streams, on sockets, or manually fed buffer content.

Twin is a "retro" program for embedded or remote systems
Twin is a text-mode window environment. It supports mouse and multiple windows, has a built-in terminal emulator and window manager, and can serve as display for client applications. Its retro look-and-feel comes with very modern features: it is best described as a VNC-like server, that can use a variety of displays - all with mouse support: from a plain text terminal, to a Linux console, to a full kde, gnome or X11 desktop.
