The library consists of a flexible set of C-routines that can be used in C and C++ programs.

Bundled with the library is also a Form designer, fdesign, which can be used to build interaction forms in a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) way and to generate the corresponding C code for you. 50+ demos in source code are distributed with the library.

For compilation of the examples you need to have the xpm-dev package installed.

Michael Meskes <meskes@debian.org>
Description:
High Level Word Processeor (BETA version) LyX is an almost WYSIWYG-frontend for LaTeX that runs under X-Windows. It makes the power and typesetting quality of LaTeX available for people who are used to word processors. Since LyX supports the LaTeX-concept of general mark-ups, it is even easier and faster to create beautiful documents with it than with usual word processors. It is also possible to use LaTeX-commands within LyX, so nothing of LaTeX's power is lost.

Note, that LyX is still under development. It may still have some bugs. But it is already very usable.

npasswd-boulder

*download (905 Kb)
Version: 1.2.2-2 Last modified: Sun Jul 7 19:14:50 1996
Architecture: m68k
Maintainer:
Chris Fearnley <cjf@netaxs.com>
Description:
npasswd - a replacement passwd (for better site security) npasswd changes or installs a login password for username (your own by default). Only the super-user can change another users' password.

When changing a password, npasswd prompts for the old password and then for the new one. The new password must be typed twice to forestall mistakes. The new password is checked for reasonableness.

This is npasswd-boulder + cracklib 5. I needed it because one of my clients had 50% of his Debian users' passwds cracked by crack. Some have argued that npasswd + cracklib offers as much (or more) security than shadow passwd. I'm not a security guru, but it's better than the default passwd under Debian for multi-user systems.

libc5
