pthread-lib is a set of pthread wrapper functions, a thread manager, and a signal handler. The wrapper functions enable the programmer to create and manage sets of thread pools without knowing all the pthread internals. This includes creating, joining, and other operations. The thread manager watches and supervises the threads, checking whether they are still alive and working. The thread manager can also be assigned tasks by the programmer, either in code or by a configuration file. These tasks will be executed when the scheduled date/time occurs, and can be almost any task. The thread manager is implemented as its own thread within the main process. A single-threaded signal handler is available to catch all signals to a multi-threaded process. Instead of having every thread manage signals, this one thread handles all signals. To further enhance its functionality, the programmer is allowed to assign functions (via a pointer to a function) to any signal it may catch.
puddletag is a tag editor for Linux loosely based on mp3tag. It uses a table layout so that all the tags you want to edit by hand are visible and easily editable. puddletag excels at automating repetitive tasks like extracting tag information from filenames, tagging files from a text file or the clipboard, renaming or moving files and folders based on tags by using patterns, and manipulating tags using actions and regular expressions. Supported formats include id3v1, id3v2 (.mp3), AAC (.m4a), VorbisComments (.ogg, .flac), and APEv2 (.ape). Much of mp3tag's functionality has been replicated with added enhancements and tweaks.
pwgrep is a simple password manager that manages a database file using encryption of GnuPG. It uses encryption and version control on all of the passwords that are stored. The password database can be used on several hosts at once with automatic synchronization. Even several users can share the same password database. The versioning system will keep track of who was changing which entries and at which time. The versioning system to use can be configured (and is Subversion by default). Besides passwords, pwgrep can also be used for storing a collection of files like certificates. The file shredding command for secure deleting of temporary files can be configured. A local backup of all database changes is automatically made. It can be used without a GUI (such as through an SSH session).
pexconfig allows you to use a PXE-enabled network card as the first boot device for a system. This software suite also includes PXE-menu tools, which are used to control the booting of networked computers directly from the computer's console at the BIOS level before any operating system has been loaded. The menus provided by these tools can be used for diagnostic purposes, for firmware upgrades, or for selecting an operating system installation method.
PyBit is a small application written in wxPython for shortening URLs using some of the best shortening engines like: bit.ly, is.gd, cli.gs, smsh.me, tr.im and posting status updates to Twitter or identi.ca. It tries to be as simple and as user-friendly as possible. Configuration uses a simple preferences dialog, and all the buttons and text are bigger. All passwords (for twitter and identi.ca) are stored in plain text, so it’s currently not secure. Under GNOME, pyBit stores the shortened URL directly to your clipboard, so you don’t have to select and copy the short URL.
