Download Website 22 Aug 21:26 GNU Parallel 20120822 ('Boson')


GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.

Release Notes: Due to a bugfix, the main flow has changed, making this release beta quality.

Download No website 22 Aug 21:01 quIRC 0.9.5


quIRC is a lightweight console-mode IRC client. It uses terminal escape sequences to provide a clean character-cell based interface, handling things like multiple channels and servers (using tabs), input line editing (with bash-like keystrokes), and backscroll.


Release Notes: This release fixes a few bugs (mainly cosmetic) and adds merging of join/part/quit messages. For example, a series of consecutive joins will get merged into a single line like this: "=foo=bar=baz= have joined #metasyntactic". This is particularly useful in the event of netsplits. One problem to note is that of timestamps; the timestamp shown will be that of the most recent join (or part, or quit) in the merged block. As a workaround, quIRC refuses to merge lines whose timestamps differ by more than 5 seconds (this should be a long enough time to capture an entire netsplit event).
