"The newly formed Server Software Division of SCO (Nasdaq: SCOC) today announced that it has ramped up its Open Source efforts with the release of key technologies, contributions, and initiatives to the Open Source Community."

"SCO is contributing source code for two developer tools -- "cscope" and "fur." The code is released under the terms of the BSD License and will be maintained by SCO. The first technology, cscope, is available to download at www.sco.com/opensource. Software developers can use cscope to help design and debug programs coded with the C programming language. The second technology, Fur, will be available to download in several weeks. Fur is a real-time analysis program used to optimize application and system binaries for more effective run time execution. Dramatic results have been seen in high-level applications and database systems using fur."

""Linux is becoming an increasingly popular platform for ISPs and dotcomms," said Victor Krutul, manager of UNIX and Linux Programs at Intel. "Developers of Linux operating systems on the Intel platform will benefit from these contributions which will enable them to optimize existing applications suites and help create new applications.""
