GNU ccScript offers a class extensible threaded embedded scripting engine for use with the Common C++ GNU package. This engine is also used in Bayonne (the GNU telephony server), and in TOSI (FreeBSD and GNU/Linux PBX integration servers). This engine differs from traditional scripting systems in that it is used to script near real-time state-event systems through deterministic callback step execution rather than the linear and non-deterministic fashion of embedded script libraries such as tcl, and libguile.
Drupal is a modular content management system, forum, blogging and community engine. It is database driven and can be used with MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. Its features include (but are not limited to) discussion forums, Web-based administration, theme support, a submission queue, content rating, content versioning, taxonomy support, user management with a fine-grained permission system based on user roles (groups), error logging, support for content syndication, locale support, and much more. It is considered to be an excellent platform for developers due to its clean code and extensibility, and it can also be used as a Web application framework.
gfortune is a replacement for the traditional Berkeley fortune program included with the BSD games package. This implementation supports recursion down a tree of fortune files, the option to limit the number of lines output (for scripting), and other features. It fully maintains the functionality of the original. It includes the author's own archive of fortune files.
Cfengine is a tool for setting up and maintaining BSD and System-5-like operating system optionally attached to a TCP/IP network. You can think of cfengine as a very high level language, much higher level than Perl or shell: a single statement can result in many hundreds of operations being performed on multiple hosts. Cfengine is good at performing a lot of common system administration tasks, and allows you to build on its strengths with your own scripts.
GNU Make examines the timestamps on a set of interdependent files, and, if necessary, issues commands to bring them up-to-date. The user creates a makefile describing the files, their relationships, and the commands to run. Most often make is used to rebuild libraries and programs when their sources are changed, but it can be used for any situation where one set of files needs to be generated from another set.
imapbiff is a small perl/tk program that notifies you of new mail in an IMAP mail account. It only checks IMAP accounts, not local mail files or POP accounts. When you do not have any unread messages in your IMAP Inbox, it will display a mailbox icon with the flag lowered. When it detects new messages in your IMAP Inbox, it will beep and raise the flag. Whenever it is querying the IMAP server, a "?" is displayed to indicate that it is checking for messages.
