utfout is a command-line tool that can produce UTF-8 (Unicode) strings in various ways and direct them to standard output, standard error, or direct to the terminal without the need for shell support. Strings can be repeated, delayed, randomly-generated, written to arbitrary file descriptors, interspersed with other characters, and generated using ranges. printf(1)-style escape sequences are supported along with extended escape sequences. utfout(1) sits somewhere between echo(1) and printf(1).
timeplotters is a collection of command line tools for visualizing temporal data. It is especially useful for visualizing data from ad-hoc program logs, helping you to spot patterns and anomalies that you would not otherwise see by just watching how the program works or by looking at the logs with the naked eye. Its input format is tailored to event types typically seen in program logs, and the visualization methods are tailored to the questions typically asked about program performance (e.g. distribution of activity durations).
rough is software to embed macros in PHP code. Add a comment to your code, run the macro command, and rough generates code. The macros are not removed from the source code and can easily be updated. Currently, there are macros to generate get methods, generate set methods, and emulate traits in PHP 5.3.
