ACFTools is a utility for manipulating X-Plane flight simulator aircraft and weapon models without using its Plane Maker. It can decode both Apple and Intel ACF/WPN formats into plain text files with a syntax similar to C, which can be edited and then re-converted into binary data. It is able to extract almost complete 3D models of aircraft (fuselage, floats, tanks, wings, stabs, propellers, engines) and write it in AC3D modeler format. Edited 3D parts can then be merged into plain text and consequently converted into binary ACF files.
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.

BHL is an Emacs mode which enables you to convert plain text files into HTML, LaTeX, Texinfo, SGML (Linuxdoc), and TXT files. The BHL mode handles three levels of sections, many sectioning styles, common font-styles, any kind of lists, tables, URLs, horizontal rules, and Wiki names. 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.
Beautifier (previously known as PSH, the PHP Syntax Highlighter) highlights and indents source code using highlight configuration files which are similar to Ultraedit highlighting files. It supports C, C#, Java, Perl, PHP, Pascal, Lisp, Mumps, Eiffel, Euphoria, and x86 Assembler, amongst others. It handles line/block comments, keyword highlighting, correct indentation, string highlighting, language contexts (allowing embedded languages), and selection highlighting. It is available in PHP and Perl versions.
Boustrophedon Text Reader displays text files in Boustrophedon, a writing style used by the ancient Greeks that alternates direction every line. Once accustomed to the style, a person can gain significant speed in reading and writing. It is of particular interest to those seeking ambidexterity and brain-hemisphere equivalence.
