hwloc provides command line tools and a C API to obtain the hierarchical map of key computing elements, such as: NUMA memory nodes, shared caches, processor sockets, processor cores, and processor "threads". hwloc also gathers various attributes such as cache and memory information, and is portable across a variety of different operating systems and platforms. hwloc primarily aims at helping high-performance computing (HPC) applications, but is also applicable to any project seeking to exploit code and/or data locality on modern computing platforms.
mydp is a program for processing mysqldump files in the manner of ‘awk’. It reads mysqldump SQL statements from standard input and executes Lua callback functions as table definitions and insert statements are encountered. The Lua callback functions are specified in a file passed to mydp via the command line. The callbacks are typically used to filter and process only a small subset of the MySQL dump data and/or save it for further processing. mydp is written in Lex and Lua.
lxt (linuXtree) is a file manager program that was inspired by the popular DOS program XTreeGold. Most of the keyboard shortcuts are the same and the interface is similar, but it has been modified a bit to better suit the features of Unix such as long file names and file permissions.
BSDftpd-ssl is a secure and easy-to-use FTP server that supports industry standard TLS/SSL encryption and authentication for whole FTP sessions and data transfers. This implementation supports both the original FTP protocol and the RFC2228-compliant TLS/SSL enhancement. The package contains the secure FTP server (named "ftpd") and a command line TLS/SSL-aware FTP client (named "ftps"). The server's features include logging of transfers, changing of a session root (known as "chroot"), and virtual host support.
wiipdf is a tiny tool to present a PDF using xpdf and your Wiimote. You start it by providing it the bluetooth ID of your Wiimote (use hcitool scan to get it) and the path to the PDF you want to present. wiipdf then tries to connect to your Wiimote (press buttons 1 and 2 at the sime time on your Wiimote to enter discoverable mode). As soon as the connection is established (usually 3-4 seconds), wiipdf launches xpdf with the given filename. You can now press A or B on your Wiimote to go forward or backward one slide. Pressing the home button ends the presentation. Each keypress is confirmed by a short rumble.
The dsnapshot script provides a high-level interface to the Linux Logical Volume Manager. It uses its block-level snapshot support to create directory snapshots. In contrast to block-level snapshots, directory snapshots resemble the file system layer. Thus, you can snapshot any directory that is on a logical volume without worrying about the actual logical volumes, mount points, and paths.
