Syllable Server

Last Update: 2019-05-19 13:50 UTC


Syllable Server is a small, efficient server operating system built to be similar to Syllable Desktop, but on the Linux kernel. Due to its light weight, Syllable Server is exceptionally suitable as a virtualisation platform for running other operating systems (or multiple instances of itself), using the QEMU emulator.

  •  Genode - Capabilities-based operating system framework 8.08
  •  
  •  
  •  Genode is a novel operating-system architecture that enables dynamic workload while retaining security and robustness. The fundamental difference of Genode compared to other OS architectures is its strict organizational structure, which allows the execution of sensitive applications with a trusted computing base of a few thousand lines of code beside high-complexity workload. With its organizational approach, the architecture facilitates a clean separation of policies and mechanisms, and enables the definition and application of system policies in a natural and distributed fashion. Genode's resource-management concept enables highly dynamic workload but still retains deterministic behaviour normally only found in statically configured systems.

  •  IPRoute2 - Modern network configuration replacement for ifconfig 2.6.25
  •  
  •  
  •  Iproute2 is a collection of utilities for controlling TCP / IP networking and traffic control in Linux.
  •  
  •  Most network configuration manuals still refer to ifconfig and route as the primary network configuration tools, but ifconfig is known to behave inadequately in modern network environments. They should be deprecated, but most distros still include them. Most network configuration systems make use of ifconfig and thus provide a limited feature set. The /etc/net project aims to support most modern network technologies, as it doesn't use ifconfig and allows a system administrator to make use of all iproute2 features, including traffic control.
  •  
  •  Iproute2 consists of several tools, of which the most important are ip and tc. ip controls IPv4 and IPv6 configuration and tc stands for traffic control. Both tools print detailed usage messages and are accompanied by a set of manpages.
  •  Included in Syllable Server
  •  IPTables - Firewall and NAT configuration tools 1.4.0
  •  
  •  
  •  IPTables is the userspace command line program used to configure the Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x IPv4 packet filtering ruleset. It is targeted towards system administrators. Since Network Address Translation is also configured from the packet filter ruleset, iptables is used for this, too. The iptables package also includes ip6tables. ip6tables is used for configuring the IPv6 packet filter.

  •  Less - Text mode text file viewer 418
  •  
  •  
  •  Less is a free, open-source file pager. It can be found on most versions of Linux, Unix and Mac OS, as well as on many other operating systems.
  •  
  •  Less is a program similar to more, but which allows backward movement in the file as well as forward movement. Also, less does not have to read the entire input file before starting, so with large input files it starts up faster than text editors like vi. Less uses termcap (or terminfo on some systems), so it can run on a variety of terminals. There is even limited support for hardcopy terminals.

  •  
  •  As with most container formats it encapsulates raw compressed data and allows the interleaving of audio and video data inside a single convenient format. Other examples of container formats are Quicktime .mov, the MPEG program stream, and AVI.
  •  
  •  Ogg is a stream oriented container, meaning it can be written and read in one pass, making it a natural fit for internet streaming and use in processing pipelines. This stream orientation is the major design difference over other file-based container formats.

It helps you insert the correct compiler options on the command line so an application can use gcc -o test test.c `pkg-config --libs --cflags glib-2.0` for instance, rather than hard-coding values on where to find glib (or other libraries). It is language-agnostic, so it can be used for defining the location of documentation tools, for instance.

  •  QEmu - Emulator and virtualiser 0.9.1
  •  
  •  
  •  QEMU is a generic machine emulator and virtualiser.
  •  
  •  When used as a machine emulator, QEMU can run OSes and programs made for one machine (e.g. an ARM board) on a different machine (e.g. your own PC). By using dynamic translation, it achieves very good performance.
  •  
  •  When used as a virtualiser, QEMU achieves near native performance by executing the guest code directly on the host CPU. A host driver called the QEMU accelerator (also known as KQEMU) is needed in this case.

  •  ReadLine - Command line editing and history recall library 5.2
  •  
  •  
  •  The GNU Readline library provides a set of functions for use by applications that allow users to edit command lines as they are typed in. Both Emacs and vi editing modes are available. The Readline library includes additional functions to maintain a list of previously-entered command lines, to recall and perhaps reedit those lines, and perform csh-like history expansion on previous commands.
  •  
  •  The history facilities are also placed into a separate library, the History library, as part of the build process. The History library may be used without Readline in applications which desire its capabilities.

  •  REBOL/Core - Relative Expression Based Object Language -current release 2.7.6
  •  
  •  
  •  REBOL uses "relative expressions" (context dependent dialects) to create a powerful new dimension similar to that found in natural human languages.
  •  
  •  REBOL provides a lightweight platform for Internet applications. REBOL's power makes applications small so they are less expensive to create, distribute, maintain, and upgrade. In the size of a typical web page, you can fit an entire REBOL application.

  •  REBOL-MySQL - MySQL driver for REBOL 1.2.0
  •  
  •  
  •  This driver will allow you to connect to a MySQL database server, send queries and retrieve resulting recordsets. This driver is 100% written in REBOL and doesn't require any additional library (like libmysql). It works with all REBOL products and on all platforms supported by REBOL. You only need one file to make it work and its size is less than 30KB. It works by adding a new scheme (mysql://) that enables any REBOL product to talk to a MySQL server.

  •  REBOL/Services - Network services framework written in REBOL -current release 2007.4
  •  
  •  
  •  REBOL/Services implements network services - similar in concept to web services, but extremely lightweight by comparison. The design provides an easy way to send requests to REBOL-based services on the Internet. It is also possible to create gateways to other types of services.
  •  
  •  REBOL/Services provides a simple, elegant way to share information between computer programs. They can be used to exchange information between clients and servers that are located thousands of miles apart or simply between applications running on your local computer.
  •  
  •  REBOL/Services implements a concept called a service oriented architecture or SOA for short. The basic idea of an SOA is that you send a request message to another program (a "service") that attempts to fulfill the request and return the result.

  •  
  •  
  •  S-Lang is a multi-platform programmer's library designed to allow a developer to create robust multi-platform software. It provides facilities required by interactive applications such as display/screen management, keyboard input, keymaps, and so on. The most exciting feature of the library is the slang interpreter that may be easily embedded into a program to make it extensible. While the emphasis has always been on the embedded nature of the interpreter, it may also be used in a stand-alone fashion through the use of slsh, which is part of the S-Lang distribution.

  •  S3Sync - Amazon S3 control and synchronisation tools -current release 1.2.6
  •  
  •  
  •  S3Cmd is a Ruby program that wraps S3 operations into a simple command-line tool. It is inspired by things like rsh3ll, #sh3ll, etc., but shares no code from them.
  •  
  •  S3Sync is a Ruby program that easily transfers directories between a local directory and an S3 bucket:prefix. It behaves somewhat, but not precisely, like the RSync program.
  •  
  •  In general, s3sync and s3cmd complement each other. s3sync is useful to perform serious synchronization operations, and s3cmd allows you to do simple things such as bucket management, listing, transferring single files, and the like.

  •  
  •  Initially, tar archives were used to store files conveniently on magnetic tape. The name "Tar" comes from this use; it stands for tape archiver. Despite the utility's name, Tar can direct its output to available devices, files, or other programs (using pipes), it can even access remote devices or files (as archives).

  •  TermCap - GNU terminal capabilities library 1.3.1 release 1
  •  
  •  
  •  This is the GNU termcap library -- a library of C functions that enable programs to send control strings to terminals in a way independent of the terminal type. The GNU termcap library does not place an arbitrary limit on the size of termcap entries, unlike most other termcap libraries. However, the current version contains some entries that are more than 1023 bytes long, which is the largest value that is safe to use with the many historical applications that only allocate a 1024 byte termcap buffer (telnet, for example). Use of termcap is discouraged. Termcap is being phased out in favor of the terminfo-based ncurses library, which contains an emulation of the termcap library routines in addition to an excellent curses implementation.

  •  
  •  
  •  The Wireless Extension (WE) is a generic API allowing a driver to expose to the user space configuration and statistics specific to common Wireless LANs. The beauty of it is that a single set of tool can support all the variations of Wireless LANs, regardless of their type (as long as the driver support Wireless Extension). Another advantage is these parameters may be changed on the fly without restarting the driver (or Linux).
  •  
  •  The Wireless Tools (WT) is a set of tools allowing to manipulate the Wireless Extensions. They use a textual interface and are rather crude, but aim to support the full Wireless Extension. There are many other tools you can use with Wireless Extensions, however Wireless Tools is the reference implementation.
