Projects / MiscTools


MiscTools is a collection of small UNIX utilities that are fairly trivial but nevertheless useful. These include a binary dump program, a directory browser/selector, a file truncator, an ASCII-code lookup utility, a program for printing fortunes, a curses-based terminal lock program, and a few others.

            I'm currently reorganizing the package to use automake/autoconf. Will have a new release out shortly.

            This project is kind of neat, simply because it lets us all be a little bit more lazy in some arenas.

            However, on the topic of laziness.. YOu have to hand edit a few things in the Makefile, that could be fixed by having a configure script put in. (Mentioned in the README)

            you need to change the PREFIX, you need to have Pingutil (Not packaged with it), and you need to change the PINGUTIL dir to the install dir of PINGUTIL.

            These are minor annoyances that seem trivial to fix, other than that.. The actual programs are good, and will help any coder be lazier :P
