The Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is both a reference and a tutorial on shell scripting. This comprehensive book, the equivalent of 1,032 print pages, covers almost every aspect of shell scripting. It contains 382 profusely commented illustrative examples, a number of tables, and a cross-linked index/glossary. Not just a shell scripting tutorial, this book also provides an introduction to basic programming techniques, such as sorting and recursion. Included scripts are the Game of Life, a Perquackey variant, a Morse code trainer, and an implementation of the Gronsfeld Cipher. This book is suited for both individual study and classroom use. It covers Bash, up to and including version 4.2. Note that users of miniaturized single-board computers running Linux, such as the Raspberry Pi and the Beagle Bone, would find this Guide useful for learning and running Bash scripts to explore and expand the capabilities of these small, but powerful machines.
Onyx is a powerful stack-based, multi-threaded, interpreted, general purpose programming language similar to PostScript and Forth. It can be embedded as an extension language into other applications, and was designed to have a small memory footprint. It is among the smallest embeddable interpreters available.
Set-cd-rom-speed is an application for setting CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drive speed, written with KDE Kommander. Fast CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives have one big disadvantage over older and slower models in that they are often quite loud because of the disk spinning very fast in the drive. Using set-cd-rom-speed, you can decrease the drive's speed and thus reduce the annoying noise.
Web+Shop is a user-friendly e-commerce shopping cart application for the Web. With Web+Shop, merchants and ISPs can quickly create Internet malls and shopping carts. Once built, the shops can be used to sell products, manage inventory, fill orders, manage customers/shipping/tax, and execute transactions online.

Customers can browse products, add/remove products from the shopping cart, check out, select a payment method, view invoices, confirm the order, and check the order status. Web+Shop supports full integration with Authorize.Net, Cardservice International, CyberCash, and ICVerify which will allow merchants to securely conduct real-time online payment processing.
TalentSoft Web+ (WebPlus) is a development tool dedicated for developing web-based client-server applications without writing CGI programs. It enables rapid/easy creation of highly functional web pages which integrates with databases, files systems, email, Java applets, and other third-party programs. With Web+, users can quickly and easily create powerful Web applications without learning complicated programming languages such as C, C++, PERL, or Java. Web+ currently runs on Microsoft Windows NT/95, Linux, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, and will soon be available on other Unix systems. It works with most web servers and integrates with all ODBC compliant databases.
cw is a non-intrusive real-time ANSI color wrapper for common Unix-based commands. It is designed to simulate the environment of the commands being executed, so that if a person types 'du', 'df', 'ping', etc. in their shell it will automatically color the output in real-time according to a definition file containing the color format desired. It has support for wildcard match coloring, tokenized coloring, headers/footers, case scenario coloring, command-line- dependent definition coloring, and includes over 50 pre- made definition files.
netscript is a portable/multi-platform, lightweight TCP/UDP socket scripting system. It is intended to automate situations, built on a word-to-word ruleset response system. It includes wildcard support, character replacement, random replacement, argument inclusion, server timeout, initial send, display altering, multiple character dump formats, telnet protocol support, logging, program to socket dumping, executable ruleset support, reverse binding, module support, data truncation, data formatting, permission options, virtual hosting support, history storage, dynamic storage variables, directory placement, character omitting, timed rules, background support, syslog support, routing support, socket options, interactive mode, and graphical user interface support.
Tdbengine is an RDBMS with an integrated programming language. It represents the enhancement of the famous DOS-TDB, and is designed to handle databases on the Web. It connects to the Web server using the standard CGI interface, or runs on the command line. It is very small (about 400 KBytes), extremely quick, and easy to administrate. Its features are full text indexing, an automatic data link system, and the script language EASY, which replaces the commonly used SQL with its modular code.
