Source Code Search Engine

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Miscellaneous

Author: Semantic Designs

Source code search engine.
Provides an interactive interface enabling one to search across a large source code base, using the language structure of each of the languages providing more precise answers than simple string searches can produce. For any query, the Search Engine offers a list of matches with surrounding context; the use can select a specific match and immediately inspect the source file.

Features include:
- Interactive search and inspection of source code
- Search across millions of lines of code, tens of thousands of source code files
- Query in terms of language lexical constructs such as identifiers, numbers, operators, string literals or comments to minimize false positives
- Generic queries can match identifiers or string literals across multiple programming languages
- Complex queries can match complex statements
- Queries can have patterns (or regular expressions) on character strings
- Numbers can compared to values or ranges
- Language elements are normalized so escape conventions do not confound searches
- Searches ignore language-specific intervening whitespace, linebreaks and comments, providing more accurate answers
- Optional GREP-like string (regular expression) search
- Scrollable list of search hits with context
- Can handle many computer languages (Java, C#, C++, etc.)
- Translates arbitrary characters sets into a uniform representation for indexing and display

UI Mapper (User Interface Mapper) for .NET.
A UI Mapper is a library and set of controls that allow your UI to be dynamically created at run-time, loaded from your business entity objects, as well as to persist the UI changes back. It also allows you to use your own data-access layer, framework (like CSLA), or object-relational mapper (like NHibernate, LLBLGen Pro, WilsonORMapper) to transparently load and persist your business entity objects to a relational database.
WilsonUIMapper supports both Web and Windows applications, and your own custom DAL or O/R Mapper, as well as the WilsonORMapper. You can also create and plug-in your own custom Widgets to wrap third party visual controls, or to make your own edit controls.
Features include:
- UIMapper framework: XML mapping files between UI elements and business entities
- ListView control: basically a grid control, but automates paging and sorting
- EditView control: basically an edit screen, with read-only view and multiple columns

Author: Provisio

Latest version: 0.99.1

Class library that brings STL-like containers with iterators to the .NET world (especially C#).
Provisio.Collections offers fundamental sequence (vector/list/deque) and associative (tree/skiplist) containers that can be filled, traversed and modified using iterators.

Details:
Provisio.Collections offers well-known data structures like vector, list and balanced binary tree (red-black BST) that can be filled, traversed, modified and erased using iterators. All containers at least implement the two standard interfaces ICollection and ICloneable to provide full compatibility to other .NET infrastructure. Additionally all containers are compatible on iterator level. This means for example you can insert a range specified by two iterators of one container into any other container (e.g. list -> vector -> tree).

C# parser fully compliant with ECMA-334 (C# 1.2) and ECMA-335 standards. In addition, it supports Microsoft-specific extensions.

Metaspec C# parser is available in two versions:
- a compilation parser, designed for applications that require converting source code into the internal format as fast as possible. Only the significant data required for correct analysis of the program is preserved. This parser is useful for the development of compilers, interpreters, analyzers and other tools that do not require modification of source code.
- a transformation parser, that preserves all information in the program's source code (including comments, spaces and preprocessing directives). This parser is useful for the development of refactoring and formatting utilities and other programs that do transformations on the program's source code.

Linguist Parsing System

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Miscellaneous

Author: Fred Mellender

Latest version: 1.0
Added 2007-03-12

The Linguist Parsing System (LPS) supplies the C# programmer with many of the facilities of the popular Unix utilities Lex and Yacc. LPS has a different interface, which handles a superset of Yaccĺs grammars and returns all valid parses of its input when the grammar is ambiguous.

Instead of embedding programming statements in the grammar specification, the programmer will construct and then invoke the LPS parser from her C# program. LPS will return all valid parses of the input as parse trees (one at a time, via an iterator). The application program then operates on each parse tree to do a translation, generate machine code, invoke an interpreter, or similar functions.
You can use LPS to parse program source files, data files, and natural language text. Any grammar that can be expressed in BNF, even ambiguous ones, can be given to LPS. These include (but are not limited to) LALR(k), LL(k), and LR(k).
There are five components to LPS. First is the LexRuleBuilder which takes a text file and makes the lexerĺs rules. The second is the ParseRuleBuilder which makes the rules (productions) for the parser. Third is the Lexer (a lexical analyzer), which takes an input file of text to be parsed, builds tokens, and passes these to the fourth component: the Parser. The first three of these components can be replaced by your own objects.
The last component is a test facility. This allows text (or a file) to be input and the resulting parse tree to be displayed. Because the LPS system does not generate a C# program, testing can be rapid and easy. No recompilation is required when your grammar changes.

GOLD Parser

Categories: Miscellaneous

Latest version: 3.4.3
Added 2005-03-15Updated 2007-05-21

Parsing system that you can use to develop your own programming languages, scripting languages and interpreters.

The GOLD Parser strives to be a development tool that can be used with numerous programming languages and on multiple platforms.
Unlike common compiler-compilers, the GOLD Parser does not require you to embed your source code directly into the grammar. Instead, the application analyzes the grammar and then saves the parse tables to a separate file. This file can be subsequently loaded by the actual parser engine and used.

Since the parse tables are programming language independent, the parser engine can be, and has been, implemented in different programming languages. As a result, the GOLD Parser supports multiple programming languages.
Supported languages include: ANSI C, C#, C++, Delphi, Java, Python, Visual Basic 6, Visual Basic .NET, and wxWidgets.

STM.NET

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Miscellaneous

Author: Microsoft

Latest version: 1.0
Added 2009-07-28

Experimental enhanced version of .NET Framework 4 Beta 1 that enables software transactional memory for C# programmers.

Transactional memory is a technology that frees developers from worrying about the mechanics of fine-grained locking and synchronization in multi-threaded applications by providing transactional semantics for reading and writing to memory. It enables developers to focus on application logic instead of the details of memory I/O when building multi-core and many-core programs.

STM.NET makes it easy to declare a region of code as atomic. Simply write a function or lambda containing the code that you'd like to transact and pass it to the Atomic.Do delegate. Just like SQL code in a database transaction, this block of code will run as if isolated from other transacted blocks and either it completes successfully or rolls back the complete transaction if there is an error, all without you having to explicitly lock anything.

Features include:
- integration with System.Transactions so you can coordinate your atomic memory operations with existing transactional resource managers like MSMQ
- integration with Visual Studio 2008: works with Visual Studio's debugger to allow you to see the values of transacted variables as they appear while running inside the Atomic.Do delegate as well as their values as they appear outside.

Lego.NET

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Miscellaneous

Author: Operating Systems and Middleware Group at HPI

Latest version: 1.4
Added 2004-11-17

Project to make the .NET run-time available on the Lego Mindstorms platform.
As the original Lego firmware is too limited for such a project, Lego.NET is built on top of alternative operating systems; currently, the focus is on brickOS.
Two different strategies are followed:
- One is to develop a tiny interpreter (code-named Micro .NET) which interprets .NET intermediate language instructions on the Mindstorms' microprocessor.
- The other approach is to develop a GCC front-end which translates Microsoft/ECMA intermediate language into native machine code of the target processor (the Renesas H8/300 processor in the case of the Mindstorms).
In either case, supporting the full .NET framework library is clearly not possible within the 32k RAM that the RCX bricks offer. Therefore, the features available to .NET developers on the Mindstorms platform are a subset which can be supported within the limited hardware resources. On the other hand, the system also offers some unique features which have no equivalent on the PC version of .NET. These features are exposed to .NET programmers by providing a wrapper around the brickOS APIs, given .NET applications access to the device's sensors and actuators.

Code Contracts

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Miscellaneous

Author: Microsoft

Latest version: 1.1.20215
Added 2009-02-27

Provides a language-agnostic way to express coding assumptions in .NET programs.
The contracts take the form of preconditions, postconditions, and object invariants. Contracts act as checked documentation of your external and internal APIs. The contracts are used to improve testing via runtime checking, enable static contract verification, and documentation generation.
Code Contracts bring the advantages of design-by-contract (DbC) programming to all .NET programming languages.
Two tools are provided:
- Runtime Checking: a binary rewriter modifies a program by injecting the contracts, which are checked as part of program execution. Rewritten programs improve testability: each contract acts as an oracle, giving a test run a pass/fail indication. Automatic testing tools, such as Pex, take advantage of contracts to generate more meaningful unit tests by filtering out meaningless test arguments that don't satisfy the pre-conditions.
- Static Checking: a static checker can decide if there are any contract violations without running the program. It checks for implicit contracts, such as null dereferences and array bounds, as well as the explicit contracts.

Latest version: 1.0
Added 2005-03-22

Allows you to compare two versions of an assembly, and determine the differences.

LibCheck reports the differences as a combination of "removed" and "added" APIs. The tool is limited to looking only at APIs (i.e., it can't check for behavioral changes), and only compares public differences, or changes which are deemed to be "breaking". The tool can be used to determine what has changed between one version of your assembly and another, and can help ensure that you won't introduce any breaking changes to clients of your assembly.

Author: Joshua Tauberer

Latest version: 1.0

Opensource Semantic Web/RDF library written in C#.

Features include:
- Reading and writing RDF/XML, Turtle, NTriples, and most of Notation 3, at around 20,000 statements/second.
- All operations are streaming, which means the entire document doesn't ever need to be loaded into memory, so it should scale.
- Two built-in types of RDF stores: an in-memory hashtable-indexed store for small amounts of data and an SQL store with MySQL and SQLite backends for large amounts of data.
- Creating new SQL-based stores takes minutes, and implementing other types of stores is as simple as extending an abstract class.
- Statements are quads, rather than triples, with the fourth 'meta' field left for application-specific uses.
- Using statements in a store is a streaming process.
- Simple reasoning engines based on RDFS and OWL.
- Home-grown RSquary query engine. It's experimental and so-far undocumented, but it's there. It supports a subset of SPARQL.
- An XPathNavigator implemented over RDF data, allowing XPath expressions to be evaluated on a semantic web data model.
