feed2wmmenu is a tool to generate X11 window manager menus from RSS, ATOM, or other news feeds. It was inspired by "fvwm-menu-headlines", which generates static refreshed FVWM menus from RSS or other kinds of news feeds. The drawback of the FVWM related script is the use of simple regular expressions. feed2wmmenu polls the feeds using curl, utilizing the Last-Modified header so that the feeds are potentially not fetched if they didn't change since the last poll. It produces diverse output formats by using corresponding XSLT stylesheets.
Ambit uses Bash brace expansion to expand and list hostnames or commands. Ambit is first and foremost meant to be a general purpose hostlist enumerator for use by other applications or scripts. Ambit can be used to manage HostGroups from the context of a user, a system, or a network. Ambit is also able to enumerate and execute commands that contain expandable elements. Commands passed to Ambit are expanded into separate statements and executed synchronously. This means Ambit can expand and execute just about anything on the command-line and often works in situations where Bash brace expansion would probably fail.
no-pkg-config is a bash script which implements the functionality of the standard pkg-config utility. It is intended for users of minimal systems who want to use pkg-config but do not want to install all the dependencies of the standard implementation. Most of the important features of the original implementation are supported. The commandline syntax and .pc file format are the same as the original. To use it, just place the script somewhere in your PATH and give it execute permissions.
deawk is a very simple double-entry bookkeeping system designed for self-employed people. It uses three (text) data files: transactions, a chart of accounts, and an optional vehicle log.
