Netwib provides most functions needed by network programs. Its objective is to let programmers easily create network programs. This library provides features for Ethernet, IPv4, IPv6, UDP, TCP, ICMP, ARP, and RARP protocols. It supports spoofing, sniffing, client, and server creation. Furthermore, netwib contains high level functions dealing with data handling.
Networkled is a small system tray utility which gives a graphical indication of the received and transmitted traffic. It relies on the proc file system and more specifically on the existence of the file "/proc/net/dev". It can be used with any system tray that follows the "Free Desktop System Tray Specification" and has a proc file system.
new-words is a script that helps you to control your vocabulary and find unknown words in texts before you start to read them.

Newfangle is a literate programming technique for LyX (or LaTeX) inspired by notangle. It comes in two parts. The weave part that produces the formatted document is implemented entirely in LaTeX, and the tangle that generates the source code is implemented in awk for portability. Naturally, newfangle is written using literate programming techniques, using itself, and so the source is also the documentation. The source is written using the LyX document editor, an excellent front end to LaTeX. LyX is not required, but newfangle provides formatting support for LyX. Literate programming makes you write good code, because if you can't write a good justification or explanation for your code, it makes you think again and write something that you can explain.
Newpods can help you sync recently downloaded podcasts to your portable device. It will look through a directory tree to find podcasts that have been downloaded since the last time the program was run. It will then insert two commands into the bash history list: one to pushd to the podcast directory on your portable device, so you can clean out old files as needed, and one to copy the new podcasts to your portable device. If you're tired of copying files by hand, but don't want to use a heavyweight GUI solution, newpods might be right for you.
