mklircrc is a program to help automatically generate LIRC configuration files. It allows the user to associate buttons on the remote control with high-level actions rather than low-level commands. By annotating a lircd.conf with a few words, the user can tell mklircrc which high-level task like "pause" or "raise volume" should be connected to the respective button. mklircrc will use this input to write a LIRC control file that will cause appropriate behavior with the various applications it supports: currently mythtv, xine, and mplayer.
PodAdmin is a very simple Web-based podcast management tool. When you upload your new episode via a Web form, PodAdmin will grab the title and description from the ID3 tags and generate a new RSS feed on your Web site. Optionally, you can specify the title and description, if it is not embedded in your audio file.
nwfiir and its accompanying software wfird allow design and use of a HiFi quality digital equalizer based on a WFIR filter (Warped Finite Impulse Response). It can take advantage of multiple processors, e.g. on a dual Pentium II 300 MHz it manages to run a two-channel equaliser with 275 taps, with 16 bit 44.1 kHz input, and 24 bit 44.1 or 88.2 kHz output. This is more than enough to very precisely equalize the whole audible range from 20 to 20000 Hz. The equalizer can be used as, and was designed for, a key component in a room equalization system. Non-realtime operation is also possible on slower machines.
