Libsmi is a C library that allows network management applications to access SMI MIB module information through a well-defined API that hides the nasty details of locating and parsing SMIv1/v2 MIB modules. Libsmi supports exact and iterative retrieval functions for all major SMIv1, SMIv2, and SMIng constructs. Some tools allow SMI module queries, checks, dumps, extraction, and various conversions and code generation.
Scsh is a systems-programming environment for POSIX systems and Win32, embedded in the Scheme programming language. It includes a high-level process notation for writing shell-script like programs, with pipelines and redirections. Scsh additionally provides low-level access to POSIX primitives, plus important non-POSIX extensions such as sockets. Scsh is implemented on top of Scheme48, a portable bytecode implementation of Scheme. A number of user-contributed extensions are available, including an extensible HTTP and FTP server, a socket-level PostgreSQL interface, a programmable text formatting language, and a Postscript generation language.
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 unsafe connections like e-mail or terminal lines.
Plait (pronounced "play") is a command-line jukebox and music player front end. It understands brief, easy to type queries that pick a single song, mix queries that combine works from multiple artists, and stream queries that find Shoutcast radio streams. A variety of filters are available to pick just the music you want to hear. In order to actually play the music it finds, Plait automatically hands off a playlist to one of the supported music players, or creates a playlist that you can manually load.
