flydraw: command-line drawing tool

 flydraw is a drawing tool based on an interpreter which parses a
 language featuring rich graphic primitives; it uses libgd to output
 GIF, JPEG, or PNG files.

wims: server for educational content: courses, exercises, and exams

 The WWW Interactive Multipurpose Server is an educational platform
 originally developed for mathematics but now also supporting subjects such
 as physics, chemistry, biology, and languages.
 WIMS features a rich set of resources and exercises either for
 autodidactical use or for training classes, including:
  * exercises with automatic feedback and correction, allowing the
    learners to work at their own pace;
  * interactive exercises with randomly assigned data, allowing the
    learners to work on the same type of exercise but with different
    data and as often as they wish;
  * exercises with an automatic scoring system, which enhances learner
  * user-friendly graphics and calculation tools;
  * courses and documents with hyperlinks to the exercise pool;
    examples in the courses can be made random, so the student can get
    more than one instance of an illustration for tricky concepts;
  * support for exams with pre-published contents. As each individual
    exam will have randomly chosen data, training is possible but
    writing each response in advance is not.
 This package contains the WIMS FastCGI server, serving Open Exercise
 Format (OEF) documents. OEF is a very high-level language which
 allows authors to focus on pedagogical issues.

wims-dbgsym: debug symbols for wims
wims-java-applets: applets for modules used by WIMS

 WIMS uses modules to implement every user interface beyond its main page.
 Some of them depend on Java applets; this package provides the collection
 of free applets which are maintained upstream.
 Some interesting applets like Jmol are missing, since they still cannot
 be built from their source with free/libre compilers. You can get them
 from their upstream developers.

wims-modules: minimal set of modules used by WIMS

 WIMS uses modules to implement every user interface beyond its main page,
 including administrative tasks, help, mathematic tools, libraries, and a
 few interactive exercises.
 To get the thousands of exercises which give WIMS its power, consider
 installing the recommended package wims-extra-all (or other packages
 which provide wims-extra).
 Other educational materials can be downloaded outside of the Debian
 system by automated updates. See http://wimsedu.info
