This is the Internet domain of Ian Kaplan and Bear Products International. At Bear Products International we specialize in well engineered and extensively documented large scale software projects. These include:
These web pages have been growing since 1995, when bearcave.com was first registered. They now cover a variety of topics. A portfolio of work spanning much of Ian's career as a software engineer is showcased here. Other topics of more general interest are included as well. The hyper-linked nature of web pages encourages organic growth. We have tried to tame this growth and fit it into categories, but it always seems that a clearer hierarchy could be built. Look around. We hope that you will find something of interest.
