Siren Renamer is a tool that renames, moves, and copies files using an expression. A lot of information associated with a file can be used, including name, extension, dates, and selection number. Other information is extracted from files according to their type: audio, video, image (standard and raw), EXIF, IPTC, Office document, PDF, ePub, HTML, and many others. Many different operations can be performed on character strings, complete directory trees can be processed, and images can be viewed. For example, to change a file name to uppercase with the mp3 extension, the expression can be '%ub.mp3'.
Worker is a file manager for the X Window System with the classical two panel interface. It features a fully graphical configuration, while still allowing manual editing of the configuration file without the need to restart Worker. Any external program can be integrated easily into the GUI using buttons, hotkeys, and file type actions. Worker uses file recognition by file content or by filename extension (or both). Different actions with completely configurable commands can be assigned to each file type.
plptools lets Unix (mainly Linux) systems communicate with EPOC PDAs (such as the Psion Revo, Psion Series 5, and Geofox 1) via a serial or (on Linux) infra-red connection. The following tools are part of the package: plpftp, an FTP-like frontend with some extensions; plpfuse, a FUSE-based file system that mounts the EPOC device's file systems on the PC; sisinstall, a SIS package installer; and plpprintd, a print server for printing via a PC.
Topologic is a simple renderer for certain higher-dimensional geometric primitives and some regular 3D shapes. The idea is to make it easy for students of certain higher-dimensional maths and physics topics to visualize the typical primitives in those fields and get a grasp for the topic. Note: the program as such is freeware, while the part of it that deals with the Mathematics to project the geometric shapes to 3-space and 2-space has been released separately under an MIT/X style license.
pmbw is a set of assembler routines to measure the parallel memory (cache and RAM) bandwidth of modern multi-core machines. Memory bandwidth is one of the key performance factors of any computer system. Today, measuring the memory performance often gives a more realistic view of the overall speed of a machine than pure arithmetic or floating-point benchmarks. pmbw contains a set of very basic functions which are all hand-coded in assembler to avoid any compiler optimizations. These basic functions are modeled after the basic inner loops found in any data processing, sequential scanning and pure random access. Any application will have a memory access pattern which is somewhere between these two extremes. The current version of pmbw supports benchmarking 16-, 32-, 64-, 128-, or 256-bit memory transfers on x86_32-bit, x86_64-bit, and ARMv6 systems.
STXXL is an implementation of the C++ standard template library STL for external memory (out-of-core) computations. STXXL implements containers and algorithms that can process huge volumes of data that only fit on disks. While compatibility with the STL supports ease of use and compatibility with existing applications, another design priority is high performance.
4Pane is a four pane detailed-list file manager for Linux. It is designed to be fully-featured without bloat, and aims for speed rather than visual effects. In addition to standard file manager things, it offers multiple undo and redo of most operations (including deletions), archive management including 'virtual browsing' inside archives, multiple renaming/duplication of files, a terminal emulator, and user-defined tools.
