The rlpr package makes it possible (or at the very least, easier) to print files on remote sites to your local printer. It includes BSD-compatible replacements for `lpr', `lpq', and `lprm', whose functionality is a superset of their BSD counterparts. In other words, with the rlpr package, you can do everything you could do with the BSD printing commands, and more. The programs are all smaller, cleaner, and more portable than their BSD equivalents, and supported on just about any POSIX.1 system.
rs reads its input into an array of rows and columns, applies a specified transformation to the array, and writes it out with the specified number of rows and columns. It can be used to do column formatting and tidying of text, to transpose rows to columns and columns to rows (word-by-word, not character-by-character), and as a wrapper around line-oriented tools to let them handle multiline data. Rs is often distributed together with jot and lam, sometimes under the name bsd-utils.
rsyncbackup is a handy tool for scheduled backups using rsync. rsyncbackup lets you easily setup multiple source folders and destinations, both locally, on your iPod or external firewire disk, or at a remote destination using ssh. rsyncbackup has no GUI, but is based on editing configuration files. The script is meant to be run in a crontab, so user interaction is not neccesary. Basic terminal skills are required to use the program.
