a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.
AWS Dashboard is a simple dashboard for Amazon Web Services. It features a list of available availability zones in each region, availability zone statuses per region, instance counts per region, instance counts which turns red if events are scheduled, a list of events by instance ID, EBS volume counts per region, EBS volume counts which turn red if any EBS volumes are unattached, the ability to delete unattached EBS volumes, elastic IP counts per region, elastic IP counts which turn red if any elastic IPs are unattached, the ability to delete unattached elastic IPs, and elastic load balancer counts per region.
AdslShare aims to be a powerful file sharing tool. It is built with modularity in mind. Each piece of the software is a plugin that can be loaded at start time. It currently has a GTK+ 2.x interface and a Gnutella protocol plugin. Planned features include the ability to download from different hosts, resume downloads and uploads, a new protocol with a more intelligent download engine, and a scripting interface.
The Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is both a reference and a tutorial on shell scripting. This comprehensive book, the equivalent of 1,000+ print pages, covers almost every aspect of shell scripting. It contains 382 profusely commented illustrative examples, a number of tables, and a cross-linked index/glossary. Not just a shell scripting tutorial, this book also provides an introduction to basic programming techniques, such as sorting and recursion. Included scripts are the Game of Life, a Perquackey variant, a Morse code trainer, and an implementation of the Gronsfeld Cipher. This book is suited for both individual study and classroom use. It covers Bash, up to and including version 4.2. Note that users of miniaturized single-board computers running Linux, such as the Raspberry Pi and the Beagle Bone, would find this Guide useful for learning and running Bash scripts to explore and expand the capabilities of these small, but powerful machines.
BGPHist is a tool that receives MP-BGP updates, decodes them, and writes them to a database for logging and monitoring purposes. It supports not only Internet routes, but also IPv4 VPN, IPV6 VPN, and L2VPN. It sounds text output, MySQL databases, and Oracle databases. For the MySQL backend, there is also a simple PHP frontend. It could be used to monitor and log an ISP's customer activity for Internet and VPNs, as a passive BGP looking glass, or as a backend for some external monitoring and accounting system.
The Bitcollider utility allows users to uniquely identify and submit files to Bitzi's community metadatabase project. The Bitcollider can be used to identify any local file and has support for extracting metadata from MP3, WAV, Vorbis, JPEG, PNG, GIF, AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and QuickTime files. Users can quickly look up all the known information about the given file in Bitzi's metadatabase.
Booruatsukaigaumai is a one-key desk game using OpenGL 3D scene rendering. Your task is to guide a number of red balls through 6 different levels full of blocks, holes, and gates. You have to make the balls go through as many gates as possible, which earns you the score points. However, you only have one key to control the desk tilt, which makes balls roll to the right (when the key is pressed) or to the left (when the key is released). Any other movement of the balls is controlled only by gravity and interaction with blocks, holes, and other balls. Even if the principle seems to be very simple, the game can be quite challenging.
