The Aardvark Shell Utils is a collection of three utilities designed to aid the user when working with shell scripts or from the command line. All three accept input on the command line or from standard input, and thus they can be piped with other commands. All commands come with their own man page. Included are realpath, filebase, and fileext.
Absimpa is a Java class library that provides a recursive decent parser. It is an experiment in abstraction and Java generics. It tries to include only the essentials of what makes out a parser and to leave out, or rather leave free for specification, what is not relevant for the parsing process.
BHL is an Emacs mode which enables you to convert plain text files into HTML, LaTeX, Texinfo, SGML (Linuxdoc), and TXT files.

BHL handles a list of links (lol) and a table of contents (toc): you can browse the lol and the toc, insert them where you want, and update the sections' numbers with one keystroke.

Boustrophedon Text Reader displays text files in Boustrophedon, a writing style used by the ancient Greeks that alternates direction every line.

CamlTemplate is a library for generating text from templates in Objective Caml. It can be used to generate Web pages, scripts, SQL queries, XML documents, and other sorts of text files. It provides a versatile, easy-to-learn template syntax that supports common scripting-language constructs, while encouraging a separation between presentation logic and application logic. The supported Caml data structures accomodate lists, tables, and trees of items in a straightforward manner. CamlTemplate works well with mod_caml and mod_fastcgi, supports any ASCII-compatible encoding, including UTF-8, and includes optional support for multithreading.
CharEntry is a tool for inserting non-ASCII characters into text, with particular emphasis on linguistic notation. It provides charts of the consonants, vowels, and diacritics of the International Phonetic Alphabet as well as a chart of precomposed accented characters. Clicking on a character inserts it into a text region, the contents of which may be saved to a file or copied and pasted elsewhere. A widget for inserting characters by Unicode codepoint is also provided. Furthermore, it is possible to read the definition of a custom character chart from a file.
