TaylorType is a program that speeds up the creation of LaTeX documents. It will compile any LaTeX document you give it with a single click. The emphasis is on a very lightweight and simple GUI. The only interaction happens in the system tray, with two file selectors and a checkbox.
tblutils is a collection of several utilities for working with tabular text files: data written in plain text, with one row per line and columns separated by a common character (usually TAB or semicolon). It complements the usual Unix tools like cut and paste by providing enhanced versions that support column labels through-out, so that you can extract columns by name (tblcut), filter data using a mathematical expression (tblfilter), re-order columns without caring about the column index (tblcsort), join multiple files on a common index without having to pre-sort them (tblmerge), and much more.
