The multibody dynamics libarary computes the forward dynamics of articulated tree-like structures of rigid links using Featherstone's algorithm. The user specifies the inertial properties of each link, as well as the connectivity between links. In this version of the package, only prismatic, revolute, and floating joint types are supported. A simple test application using OpenInventor for visualization is included with the distribution.
The source code is freely distributed for educational, research and non-profit purposes. Permission to use the library in commercial products may be obtained from MERL - A Mitsubishi Electric Research Lab, 201 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02139.

For those interested in an open-source dynamics package within a complete integrated simulation environment, you may want to check out Physsim on sourceforge.
The user loads in a vocabulary list, and the program drills the user until all words have been identified and spelled correctly. Romaji (Roman characterization of Japanese) is used, since I didn't have any Japanese fonts, and the spelling must match exactly (the Romaji convention is the one used by the textbook). The user can create new vocabulary files, or edit existing ones using any text editor (such as Microsoft Word, or SimpleText).
