(commercial) Mathematica seamlessly integrates a numeric and symbolic computational engine, graphics system, programming language, documentation system, and advanced connectivity to other applications. It is this range of capabilities--many world-leading in their own right--that makes Mathematica uniquely capable as a "one-stop shop" for you or your organization's technical work. It can handle complex symbolic calculations that often involve hundreds of thousands or millions of terms. Read more

One of the goals of the project is to fully implement the protocol and to enable user-configured profiles. New components can be easily developed in Python using the included library. It can also be used to link devices in a home network and to interact with mobile phones.
  • python-symmetric-jsonrpc

  • rappd
    rappd (Remote Applications Daemon) provides the server side of rapp, which manages application back-ends providing interfaces to rapp clients. When connected, the server sends out XML descriptions of graphical interfaces (widget hierarchies) which the client renders. Actions on interfaces are communicated back to the server which then updates the interface.
  • ratemask
    ratemask makes it easier to create ICMP type masks, as used in the icmp_ratemask sysctl, viewable through the /proc filesystem.
  • RBridge
    (commercial) RBridge is a remote Ethernet bridge solution for Linux. It connects two trusted Ethernet segments remotely over a TCP tunnel using either IPv4 or IPv6 transport.
  • RCP100
    RCP100 is a modular router control plane for Linux platforms. It can be used as a standalone router, or it can be deployed as an embedded router in a virtualized environment.
  • Remobo
    Remobo creates an Instant Private Network (IPN) between users. It lets you login easily and add users to your buddy list, and create a secure network for you.
  • remoteEncFs
    remoteEncFs is a helper for using a remote file system using EncFS on a local computer. It covers several use cases controlled by options.
  • remotehost_applet
