The Password Storage and Retrieval (PSR) system is a supplement to OpenPBS that allows PBS jobs to run with AFS authentication. It does this by strongly encrypting a user's password so the PBS server can retrieve and decrypt it when the user's job is run. The decrypted password is used to obtain an AFS token, allowing the job to run with AFS authentication. A "shepherd" process is forked into the background to renew the AFS token periodically to ensure that the token never expires while the job is still running.
path can be used to manipulate a colon-separated list of paths contained in an environment variable such as PATH. New paths can be added either to the beginning or the end of the path list, paths can be removed from the path list, and several checks can be made on the paths contained in the path list. All duplicate paths in the list are removed.
PET is a proxy server that works for HTTP (with caching), SSL, and FTP. PET supports extended ICP services (enhanced algorithms) and Cache Digests, both of which are compatible with Squid. It also includes an easy-to-use Web-based configuration interface for nearly all configuration parameters and statistics.
PhotoPC is a "freeware" software which may be used to control and retrieve photos from Epson PhotoPC digital cameras under Unix/Linux, Microsoft Windows 95, Windows NT, and MS-DOS. (This software may also work with Agfa ePhoto, Olympus D-xxxL, and Sanyo digital cameras based on firmware from Sierra Imaging, Inc.) <P>The software is command-line oriented, and does not make use of a graphical user interface (GUI). By using this software with a "batch file" or Windows short-cut icon, photos can be downloaded from the camera quickly, with a minimum off effort.
PicBook automatically produces a photo album in HTML format of your scanned images or photographs. It come with automatic image processing, slideshow, transition effects, and other nifty features. It is easy to customise with its configuration file and HTML-templates. PicBook is a Bourne shell script and therefore should run on any Unix or Linux system. It requires the standard grep and awk commands, which should be available on most systems. Additionally, it needs the "convert" and "identify" commands from the ImageMagick package to handle images.
Pidentd v3 is a much improved version of the original Ident daemon both in terms of speed, code quality and features. Features include multithreading, a "configure" script, startup autodetection, much clearer/rewritten C code, doesn't run as root after startup, has a configuration file and can be started from /etc/inittab (on systems using a SysV init).
plbackitup is a simple Perl script for backing up directories/files to a tarball. It uses a flat file database for selecting what to backup, and features logging, excludes, email notification, FTP backup files, scp files, and removing old tarballs in the backup directory. It can be run as a cron job or manually.
