What are good command line HTTP clients?
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts is a very famous quote from Aristotle, a Greek philosopher and scientist. This quote is particularly pertinent to Linux. In my view, one of Linux's biggest strengths is its synergy. The usefulness of Linux doesn't derive only from the huge raft of open source (command line) utilities. Instead, it's the synergy generated by using them together, sometimes in conjunction with larger applications.

mod_perl lets you write Apache modules entirely in Perl. In addition, the persistent interpreter embedded in the server avoids the overhead of starting an external interpreter and the penalty of Perl start-up time.


  • Foucault Test Image Analyzer
    Foucault Test Image Analyzer calculates the shape of a telescope mirror from a sequence of Foucault test images. Java-based GUI simplifies entering and organizing measurement data. Logging and comparison functions enable quantification of the effects of various figuring strokes.
  • IridiumFlares
    IridiumFlares is an application that predicts the flares made by the constellation of communication satellites known as Iridium. A flare can be observed when a light source (such as the sun or the moon) is reflected by one of the satellite?s antennas. A flare is a very bright phenomenon (the brighter have a magnitude of -8.4) that can easily be observed if the date and location in the sky are known.
  • Mars MOLA Viewer
    The Mars Orbiter Laser Alitimeter experiment carried on the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft produced a topographic map of the entire surface of Mars. The data for this map is available on the Internet. The Mars MOLA Viewer will download this data for you and render it as a 3-D landscape which you can "fly" through in real-time.
  • Mars Simulation Project
    Mars Simulation Project is a free software Java project to create a simulation of future human settlement of Mars.
  • Mars24
    Mars24 displays a Mars sunclock, a graphical representation of the planet Mars showing its current sun- and nightsides, along with a numerical readout of the time in 24-hour format.
  • N-body Simulations
    This is a Java implementation of N-Body: a set of FORTRAN codes which describe numerical simulations of many-body (N-body) gravitational interactions.
  • PlanetScape
    PlanetScape is for visiting different planets, presently Mars. The user can see : The globe of the Mars, a 2000 x 2000 km part of it in albedo colors and color coded for elevation & a 3D picture of the marsscape (stereo pictures are possible).
  • SalsaJ
    SalsaJ is meant to easily analyse astronomical data in classrooms, display amazing astronomical images. Several sets of real astronomical data have been prepared for the exercises, including measurements with SalsaJ, scientific analysis and interpretation of results. The flexibility of the SalsaJ tool enables the pupils and teachers to extend the exercises with their own observations.
  • Simulum
    This project deals with different simulations of star movements and their visualizations. At first we look at the projection and accumulation of star brightness. In actually doing this we have to distribute stars among a three dimensional figure. To get a nice effect we combine the photographic image production with a moving view point. So we get the visual impression of flying through a star field.
  • SolarCalc
    SolarCalc is designed to help photovoltaic systems designers to estimate the solar radiation and the electrical energy yield in a given site around the world.
  • Starlink
    Starlink is developing a set of Java data reduction and analysis tools and Starlink is developing a set of Java data reduction and analysis tools and Java data access classes. The new Java tools and classes are needed to produce applications in the Virtual Observatory (VO) era, and to complement the AstroGrid and other VO capabilities such as the International Virtual Observatory Alliance Data Model.
  • StarView
    StarView is an astronomical database browser and research analysis tool. The main tasks starview is used for are: Searching the MAST archive for scientific data including HST, FUSE, IUE, and EUVE data, examining the calibrations used for a particular data set, and looking at proposal information for past HST projects.
  • TerraJ
    TerraJ is a set of fractal terrain and solar system generation programs that have been ported from C/C++ to Java. The port has included extensive refactoring, the creation of a documented API to enable reuse of parts of them in other programs and extensions to the original programs such as new Swing user interfaces.
