Renaming a file works well when there is just one. But when you have a directory full of them, it gets tedious quickly. With nametrans, you can use search and replace on your list of files as you would on text in a document. And with regular expressions, you have even more power to transform file names (and whole file paths) systematically. With useful presets for common fixes like lowercasing or capitalization, you can keep your filenames nice and tidy, whether 10 or 10,000 of them, in one go.
nan_payload is an Ada package that provides support for using the NaN payload field from IEEE-754 floating point. Storing 'non-available' errors as well as other symbolic values instead of any of the numbers in numeric arrays is necessary in many statistical applications. The package allows you to read and write the part of NaN IEEE754-64 bit values known as 'the payload', which is 51 bits long, and also to treat the long_float type as an implicit tagged type by storing tags and values in the payload. Calendar dates with ms resolution as well as 9-letter symbols and some not available/error codes are provided as subtypes. Formatted output with Fortran-like descriptors as well as reading values from strings for these types is also provided.
net-status-monitor is a simple console script to test whether Internet connectivity is working. If it is, the script tells you the external IP address (in case your dynamic DNS provider is down). If not, it tries to find the point where the connectivity fails. The output is quite simple, so you can put it on your grandmother's PC. "Just tell me what the read line says" should give you enough information.
netjukebox is a Web-based media jukebox for MPD, VideoLAN, and Winamp/httpQ. It features realtime MP3 streaming from different audio formats. Users can download single tracks or a whole album in one zip file. It is also possible to batch-transcode the whole music collection to another format or bitrate without touching the original files.
