Xrmap is a program running under X that can interactively display portions of the Earth, using the huge CIA world vector map. It is based on an earlier console utility 'rmap'. It features political boundaries, major and minor rivers, glaciers, lakes, canals, etc. The map remains accurate under a very large zoom factor, which can possibly exceed 100. Spherical, rectangular, Mercator and Miller projections are implemented, and all features can be interactively set from the GUI.
MyPurgeLogs is a script that can delete files older than a number of days and can rotate and compress other files. It simply reads a configuration file to know what it must do. Wildcards for directories and files are allowed. The compression's method is determined to optimize the free space on the filesystem. This script has only been tested on AIX.
Smartmenu is a menuing application for Lirc. Its purpose is to make use of an infra-red remote controller with a Linux box as easy and smart as possible. It handles displaying and browsing menus in a way that is usable for typical user of a remote controller. Such a user must be able to use the menus when he is a few meters away from the monitor or even with monitor turned off.
