5x9 and 5x10 are two X11 fonts intended for use with xterm or other programs requiring readable small fonts. At only 5 pixels wide, they are particularly well suited to small laptop screens, allowing two 80 column windows side by side on an 800x600 screen (albeit with no room for window frames), or three windows across with room to spare on a 1280x1024 screen. The fonts implement VT100 line-drawing characters. Bolding is not directly supported; xterm does adequate bolding by duplicating pixels.
basE91 is an advanced method for encoding binary data as ASCII characters. It is similar to UUencode or base64, but is more efficient. The overhead produced by basE91 depends on the input data. It amounts at most to 23% (versus 33% for base64) and can range down to 14%, which typically occurs on 0-byte blocks. This makes basE91 very useful for transferring larger files over binary insecure connections like e-mail or terminal lines.
ECB is a source code browser for (x)emacs. It displays a couple of windows that can be used to browse directories, files, and file contents like methods and variables. It supports source code parsing for languages like Java, C, C++, Elisp, Scheme, Perl, TeX, LaTeX, etc. In addition, it offers an (optional) permanent "compile window" at the bottom of the emacs frame, which is used to display all help and compile output. The rest of the frame is called the "edit area", which can be divided into several edit windows that are used for editing the sources. Deleting some of the edit windows neither destroys the compile window nor the browsing windows. It requires the CEDET suite.
