Handbook of Open Source Tools introduces a comprehensive collection of advanced open source tools useful in developing software applications. The book contains information on more than 200 open-source tools which include software construction utilities for compilers, virtual-machines, database, graphics, high-performance computing, OpenGL, geometry, algebra, graph theory , GUIs and more. Special highlights for software construction utilities and application libraries are included. Each tool is covered in the context of a real like application development setting. This unique handbook presents a comprehensive discussion of advanced tools, a valuable asset used by most application developers and programmers; includes a special focus on Mathematical Open Source Software not available in most Open Source Software books, and introduces several tools (eg ACL2, CLIPS, CUDA, and COIN) which are not known outside of select groups, but are very powerful.
