Information for ImageMagick-

ImageMagick is a package for display and interactive manipulation of
images. The package includes tools for image conversion, annotation,
compositing, animation, and creating montages. ImageMagick can read and
write many of the more popular image formats (e.g. JPEG, TIFF, PNM, XPM,
Photo CD, etc.).

The package can be built _without_ the GUI (X11) support at all -- it
will not have the display, import, and animate functionality, but remain
extremely useful for image manipulation.

The optional "display" utility conflicts with the utility of the
same name from the misc/display port/package.

Information for latex2e-2000.06:

LaTeX is a TeX macro package.

The previous version of LaTeX was known as LaTeX2.09. Over the years
many extensions have been developed for LaTeX. LaTeX2e brings all
extensions back under a single format and thus prevents the
proliferation of mutually incompatible dialects of LaTeX 2.09. With
LaTeX2e the `new font selection scheme' is standard and, for example,
amstex (formerly the AmSLaTeX format) or slides (formerly the SLiTeX
format) are simply extension packages, all working with the same base
format. The introduction of a new release also made it possible to
add a small number of often-requested features and to make the task of
writing packages and classes simpler.

Information for libesmtp-0.8.4:

libESMTP is a library to manage posting (or submission of) electronic
mail using SMTP to a preconfigured Mail Transport Agent (MTA) such as
Exim. It may be used as part of a Mail User Agent (MUA) or another
program that must be able to post electronic mail but where mail
functionality is not the program's primary purpose. libESMTP is not
intended to be used as part of a program that implements a Mail
Transport Agent.

libESMTP is an attempt to provide a robust implementation of the SMTP
protocol for use with mail clients. It is being developed as a reaction
to the experience of incomplete or buggy implementations of SMTP and
also to help remove the need for the installation of MTAs on
workstations which only need them to provide a sendmail command for a
mail client to post its mail.

Information for libgda-0.2.96_1:

GNU Data Access (GDA) is an attempt to provide uniform access to
different kinds of data sources (databases, information servers,
mail spools, etc).

It is a complete architecture that provides all you need to access
your data, defined by a set of CORBA interfaces as generic as possible
(but very powerful at the same time) so that any kind of data source
can be accessed through them.

libgda is an interface to the GDA architecture, providing a nice
wrapper around the CORBA interfaces, for both the client and the server
parts. It also provides a bunch of tools to help you both in the
development and management of your data sources, all done through
the GDA model's set of CORBA interfaces.

libgda was part of the GNOME-DB project, but has been separated from it
to allow non-GNOME applications to be developed based on it.

Information for libglade-0.17_2:

A library that allows you to load GLADE interfaces at runtime (you don't
have to generate stubs with GLADE before hand). This way you can change

the logic behind the interface separately from the code to build the
interface, so changing the interface is not so much of a problem.

It includes the GNU-style getopt_long() function.


Information for libiconv-1.8:

This library provides an iconv() implementation, for use on systems which

CP{1250,1251,1252,1253,1254,1257}, CP{850,866}, Mac{Roman,CentralEurope,
Iceland,Croatian,Romania}, Mac{Cyrillic,Ukraine,Greek,Turkish},
Semitic languages
ISO-8859-{6,8}, CP{1255,1256}, Mac{Hebrew,Arabic}

MuleLao-1, CP1133
Platform specifics
Full Unicode
UTF-8, UCS-2, UCS-2BE, UCS-2LE, UCS-4, UCS-4BE, UCS-4LE, UTF-16,
Full Unicode, in terms of `uint16_t' or `uint32_t'
(with machine dependent endianness and alignment)

It can convert from any of these encodings to any other, through Unicode
conversion. It has also some limited support for transliteration, i.e.
when a character cannot be represented in the target character set, it can
be approximated through one or several similarly looking characters.

libiconv is for you if your application needs to support multiple character
encodings, but that support lacks from your system.

POV-Ray(TM) 3.1g Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer

The Persistence of Vision(TM) Ray-Tracer creates three-dimensional,

lighting in a scene and generates an image of that scene from the view point
of a camera also described in the text file. Ray-tracing is not a fast
process by any means, but it produces very high quality images with realistic
reflections, shading, perspective and other effects.
