DLDialog offers the capability to draw a variety of widgets, in order to ease the human user in feeding input to the script. The program is designed to be particularly useful to implement system administration scripts. It includes a definition language similar to Tcl/Tk. It can display dialogs (with the same definition) using characters with the tvision/ncurses interface or using graphical windows with the QT/X11 interface.
GRASS (the Geographic Resources Analysis Support System) is a software raster- and vector-based GIS (Geographic Information System), image processing system, graphics production system, and spatial modeling system. It contains many modules for raster data manipulation, vector data manipulation, rendering images on the monitor or paper, multispectral image geocoding and processing, point data management and general data management. It also has tools for interfacing with digitizers, scanners, and the PostgreSQL, DBF, and ODBC connected databases. GRASS operates on all common operating systems.
The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one Internet application suite. It contains an Internet browser, email and newsgroup client with an included Web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat, and Web development tools, and is sure to appeal to advanced users, Web developers, and corporate users. It uses much of the Mozilla source code powering such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird, and Miro.
Code Medic provides access to the power of gdb with an intuitive front end. It currently supports opening multiple source windows at once, setting/clearing breakpoints while the program is running, watching variables change in the variable tree as you step through code (even with nested structs), text searching through source, and integration with Code Crusader to provide a rapid, efficient develop-debug cycle.
dhcpcd is an RFC2131 compliant DHCP client. It is fully featured and yet lightweight: the binary is 60k as reported by size(1) on Linux i386. It has support for duplicate address detection, IPv4LL, carrier detection, and a merged resolv.conf and ntp.conf for which other DHCP clients require third party tools.
WOTS is a logfile monitoring utility written in Perl. It's based on swatch but is brand new. It can be configured to watch multiple logfiles and to generate actions based on (perl regex) patterns matched in those files. Logfile rotations and variable logfile names are all possible. The actions can be printing the message, executing an external command, and others.
lm_sensors provides essential tools for monitoring the temperatures, voltages, and fans of Linux systems with hardware monitoring devices. It contains a library for sensors access (libsensors), a command-line tool for sensor reporting (sensors), and a daemon (sensord). It also contains scripts for sensor hardware identification and fan speed control.
PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) is a portable message-passing programming system, designed to link separate host machines to form a ``virtual machine'' which is a single, manageable computing resource. The virtual machine can be composed of hosts of varying types, in physically remote locations. PVM applications can be composed of any number of separate processes, or components, written in a mixture of C, C++ and Fortran. The system is portable to a wide variety of architectures, including workstations, multiprocessors, supercomputers and PCs.
