wwan-helper is a script that establishes a UMTS connection using a Ericsson F3507g Mobile Broadband Module. It was designed to be used with a ThinkPad T420s. It takes care of resetting and reinitializing the modem if the hardware fails to get a WWAN connection, and retries as often as necessary until the UMTS connection is really established. It is meant to run as a hook script for the ifup / ifdown mechanism, but should also work on other networking systems.
exude is a simple to use memory debugger. It enhances standard memory allocation calls with simple replacements that add just a little more functionality, such as keeping track of whether memory was previously allocated, and prevents common errors such as double frees, memory leaks, and so on.
