Auto Multiple Choice (AMC) is a piece of software that helps you to create and manage multiple choice questionnaires, with automated marking. Tests can be written in plain text or LaTeX. Automated correction and grading is performed from scans of the answer sheets using optical mark recognition.
osis2epub is a a program that converts a Bible text stored in Open Scripture Information Standard (OSIS) format to an EPUB book. The resulting eBook can then be read on various eReaders or converted to another format. Conversion to a simple text format and to a collection of HTML files with an accompanying stylesheet and file list (for direct viewing or subsequent conversion) is also supported.
JobRunner is a tool designed to run a job (i.e., to execute a commandline or script) which does not require user interaction, and to store the program's output (standard error and standard out) in an easy-to-read log file. It is able to save a configuration file of the job to be run, which can be used by JobRunner_Caller as a lightweight queueing system. See the Primer included in the archive for extra details on usage examples.
While the OSS community converges to Git, with the Python bunch branching to Mercurial, the typical workplace is stuck with Subversion. The author's DVCS of choice is Fossil. These are all fine projects, with their own pros and cons, but what you usually want is just a tool to store your code tree snapshot in a safe place. They can all do that, but their language differs a tiny bit. repo brings them all down to the common root. It works by detecting which VCS are you using right now and calling that, applying necessary subcommand translation if needed.
cronbot is a wrapper script for cron jobs. Rather than running your job/script directly, you run it through cronbot, and it will allow a little more control to help keep things from getting out of hand. The default behavior is to only allow one instance of your job to run. This can be changed with the --duplicate option. You can also pass in a maximum time of execution for a job or add a random amount time to delay the start of your job. By default, jobs are run with a default "nice" value, which is usually 10.
csvgrep is a commandline program which enables users to execute searches on text-delimited files using a rudimentary query language. Its query language is bound to simplicity and expressivity, to be easily comprehensible. It aims at replacing both grep and awk when you are challenged to retrieve information from a text-delimited file based on the content of a specific field (or column). You can get what you want using the semantic already in the file’s underlying structure.
