Chess in a Few Bytes
Linux has a good range of extremely strong chess engines such as Stockfish, Critter, Togo II, Crafty, GNU Chess, and Komodo. The chess engines featured in this article offer no match to a good chess engine, but they show how much can be achieved with a minuscule codebase.

  • Cecilia
    Cecilia is a graphic user interface for the sound synthesis and sound processing package Csound. Cecilia enables the user to build very quickly graphic interfaces with sliders and curves to control Csound intruments. It is also an editor to Csound with syntax highlighting and a built-in reference. Cecilia is also a great tool to explore the parameters of a new opcode in an interactive and intuitive way.
  • Csound Blocks for Squeak

  • Csound-X
    Csound-X is a set of extensions to the csound-sco and csound-orc modes. It provides an extra layer of fontification, handles the csd format (a simple kind of XML) which it extends by allowing embedded Emacs Lisp code and snapshots management, interfaces with external softwares (Csound itself, Cmask, KeyKit, a sound editor) and other Emacs packages (SES, Calc, EEL, Speedbar).
  • Dex Tracker
    Dex Tracker is a tracker that makes csound easier to use. It also includes csound routines in modules that can be used in other programs.
  • drumachine
    drumachine is a Csound score generator for use in creating percussion tracks.
  • Keso
    Keso is a tracker interface to the powerful software synth Csound. With Keso, anyone can create Csound source files without writing a single line of code.
  • Pmask
    Pmask is a Python implementation of CMask.
  • PVTool
    PVTool is a Phase Vocoder Tool Compiler: allows use of a C-hybrid script language for manipulating Csound phase vocoder files. PVTool scripts can be run as stand-alone scripts or compiled into binaries for reuse. Some scripts of varying usefulness are provided.
  • scmscore
    Scheme Score is a Csound score preprocessor. Scheme Score translates a score file augmented with Scheme code into a Scheme program. When the generated program is executed by a Scheme interpreter, it produces a processed score file for input to Csound.
  • score11
    score11 is a copyrighted Csound score file pre-processor (or "note list generator") written and licensed by Aleck Brinkman of the Music Theory Department of the Eastman School of Music.
