UnifiedSessionsManager is a unified and simplified interface for the use and management of local and remote sessions on physical and virtual machines. It provides management of distributed and stacked virtual machines, management of desktops and workspaces on multiple monitors, seamless access to all types of sessions, and support of encrypted connections using SSH.
LMDBG is a collection of small tools for collecting and analyzing the logs of malloc/realloc/memalign/free function calls. Unlike many others, LMDBG does not provide any way to detect overruns of the boundaries of malloc() memory allocations, as this is not the goal. Like most other malloc debuggers, LMDBG allows detecting memory leaks and double frees. However, unlike others, LMDBG generates full stacktraces and separates the logging process from analysis, thus allowing you to analyze an application on a per-module basis.
Tartarus is a backup script designed to make backups of dedicated servers easy. It employs a range of standard Unix tools to achieve this goal, to simplify disaster recovery even when only a minimal rescue system is available. Archives can be stored on-the-fly on FTP servers as well as in the local filesystem, while a plugin system allows adaption to a wide range of usage scenarios. The use of LVM snapshots and the creation of differential backups are also included, as is an expire script to remove older archives from an FTP site.
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.
The Amazing Awk Assembler (aaa) is a primitive assembler written entirely in awk and sed. It is quite slow, the input syntax is eccentric and rather restricted, and error checking is virtually nonexistent, but it does work. Furthermore it's very easy to adapt to a new machine, provided the machine falls into the generic "8-bit-micro" category.
Werc is a minimalistic RESTful Web application framework and content management system. It follows the Unix "tool philosophy" and it is designed to be fast, simple, convenient, and easily extensible. It handles both small and big sites and has a flexible system for user and group permissions. All data is stored in plain text files that can be easily manipulated with standard tools, without using any databases or other external dependencies. Existing applications include a blogging engine with RSS/Atom feeds, a wiki system that can easily integrate pre-existing documents (can be enabled for any directory tree), and others.
runawk is a small wrapper for the AWK interpreter that helps one write standalone AWK scripts. Its main feature is to provide a module/library system for AWK which is somewhat similar to Perl's "use" command. It also allows one to select a preferred AWK interpreter and to set up the environment for AWK scripts. Dozens of ready for use [modules].awk are also provided.
