filter_evdev creates a virtual input device from a physical input device. It provides anytime configuration of positive, negative, or custom acceleration or sensitivity for each axis, or remapping axes or buttons as requested, e.g. inverting the two main mouse buttons or making the middle button act as the right button. Configuration can be dynamically changed by text commands sent to a UNIX socket. Commands apply to specific axes, buttons, or keys when moved in specified value ranges, and consist of custom arithmetic operations.
hashl creates a database with partial file hashes. It is useful for checking if you already have a copy of files before transferring them over a slow network. It does this by hashing only the first few MiB of every file. This gives it a huge speed advantage at the cost of possible (though pretty improbable) false positives.
