Hey Laura,

I checked out K Mandla earlier (neat site, it will take me a while to go
through it all, but I immediately found some interesting things I will
have to look into).

I am working on quite a few FLTK apps currently, and I came across this

The home site


has a few other things you might find interesting.  All of it (from what
it seems) is MIT licensed so it is easy to add to other projects.

But you are pretty well versed in finding these things.

Technosaurus has a LOT of little programs, and is really into making
them, you can find more on the puppy forums
