FPL (Frexx Programming Language) is an interpreting script/macro language shared library, designed to be flexible and easy inserted/embedded in any code or program. It is a complete script programming language very similar to C. The FPL library lets the software programmer define functions and variables that FPL should accept. The library will call a function in the software whenever any of these functions are used or variables are read in an FPL script program. FPL allows scripts to be in straight ASCII or bytecompiled for faster execution.
The fplan application is designed to assist general aviation pilots in creating flight plans for cross country flights in powered aircraft. It reads a planfile containing a description of the flight; departure and destination airports, navigation aids, intermediate waypoints, winds aloft, fuel consumption rates, and produces a flight plan including; wind corrected magnetic headings, distance, estimated time and fuel consumption for each leg, latitude, longitude and VOR fixes for each checkpoint, etc. A graphical preview of the flight is available on systems with X11 Windows and the XView Toolkit.
The file check daemon monitors files according to rules defined in configuration files. When a file is considered stable (due to its age, presence of a flag file, etc.) then it gets copied to a new location. Rotating backups of the destination file can be made and owner, group and permissions can be specified for the destination. Some examples of where this utility has been found to be useful are: Moving files out of an incoming FTP directory in a timely manner. Moving files uploaded to a web server into directories with different user/group. This lets the administrator run the web server as a non-root user and accept uploads using web server based authentication and then move the files to a more secure area after the transfer. The details of how to determine whether a file is stable and what to do with it once it is are defined in a "Filespec" configuration file. There is a separate filespec for each file that will be monitored which means that each file can have unique behavior associated with it.
This is a much updated version of Mike Shanzer's fingerd-1.3. It is almost completely rewritten, well-debugged (i.e., more secure), and quite configurable. It supports ACLs, a message-of-the-day file, the ability to run programs for given user-IDs, and a full set of command-line options that make it mostly compatible with modern BSD versions. It is portable, uses GNU Autoconf and GNU Automake for builds, and it comes with a ready-to-use BSD makefile too.
Firewall Log Daemon is a program written in C which will watch for ipchains or iptables log alerts in realtime. The program will start a small daemon process that parses and resolves firewall logs by reading a FIFO that syslog writes to. It can queue a batch of alerts and mail them to you, or can be used in a script to crunch an existing log file or data stream. It features hostname, port, protocol, and ICMP type/code lookup, with output formatted by a user-defined template.
