ColorLogs is an output-colorizing Perl script intended to have command output piped through it to a terminal. It allows easy creation of new highlighting configurations using simple text matches, globs, or regular expressions. It works transparently even in interactive contexts with scripts that produce prompt lines and wait for user input. Patterns are provided for Ant and Maven output. This version started as a fork of v1.1 from resentment.org, but numerous improvements have been made since then.
docx2txt is a tool that attempts to generate equivalent (ASCII) text files from Microsoft .docx documents, preserving some formatting and document information (which MS text conversion drops) along with appropriate character conversions for a good (ASCII) text experience. It is a platform independent solution consisting of (core) Perl and (wrapper) Unix/Windows shell scripts and a configuration file to control the output text appearance to fair extent. It can very conveniently be used to build a Web based docx document conversion service. Some Makefiles and Windows batch files are provided for easy installation of the scripts. With unzippers like CakeCmd that can deal with corrupt Zip archives, this tool can extract text from corrupt docx documents in many cases, where MS word processor fails to even open them.

It has both a console and a graphical interface.
