tagbk is a tool that rearranges XBEL bookmark files to improve navigability. It considers every bookmark as if it were tagged with one or more categories, all with the same importance. It does so by mapping the tagged bookmark collection to the usual hierarchic structure, using an algorithm that should create trees that are more intuitive to navigate. This package includes a prototype GUI application for doing collection maintenance using the tagging philosophy.
Taglog is designed for anyone who spends most of their day sitting at a computer, working on various projects. You can make notes about what you do, as you go along, associating them with the projects you work on. At the end of the week you can produce a report of how your time was spent, broken down by project for booking purposes. You can view previous entries, by date, or by project. You can enter the actions you intend to take, associate them with a project, and mark them as active, or complete.
tagls is a tool that matches file names using boolean expressions made of tags and regular expressions. It handles searching in file lists with word boundaries for "tags", stemming and synonym expansion for both tags and regular expressions, and boolean expressions over lists of tags or regular expressions. It can match against either the file name or the file's content. The output can be unsorted, sorted by name, or sorted by relevance.
Tailbeep opens a file (-f), seeks to the end, and watches for a string (-s). If the string is found, a beep is sent to the specified tty (-t) device. You can also daemonize (-d) it. It was written to watch /var/log/messages for the DENY string (to catch anyone trying to break into a firewall), but you can use it to watch any open file that gets appended to. You can also create a log if you like, so you can record the events, in long or short mode. Tailbeep requires write access to one of the tty devices on the console.
tal aligns common characters at the ends of lines. This is especially useful for making long C macro definitions look nice or for repairing "broken" comment boxes. tal works on any kind of common ending, which it autodetects. Intended as, but not limited to being, a filter program ("plug-in") for text editors.
