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
    motivation;
  * 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
