Oracle online (hot) backup script is a multi-platform, storage independent, safe, and flexible online physical backup script for Oracle databases (of any version). It features database checks before backup; dynamic backup of instance datafiles, archives, and configuration files; extensive error detection over all steps involved in the process; a clean and easy-to-read log with timestamps for each step; detailed error messages for troubleshooting; and more.
apub is a tool to simplify uploading documents of a site to remote servers. Simply create an XML configuration file containing one or more site definitions, with the local and remote document root. After that, you can upload any file in any of your document roots with one simple command.
The censorship tools are a collection of bash scripts for comparing DNS server answers to get the blacklist from the censored server and to make the DNS censorship transparent; downloading censored URLs for teasing the censorship or tuning of censorship statistics; and other functions like opening all censored pages of a blacklist with a browser (e. g. with CensoRaser), and perform rDNS lookup of the sites to which the traffic to censored sites is redirected.
docx2txt is a tool that attempts to generate equivalent (ASCII) text files from Microsoft .docx documents, preserving some formatting and document information (which MS text conversion drops) along with appropriate character conversions for a good (ASCII) text experience. It is a platform independent solution consisting of (core) Perl and (wrapper) Unix/Windows shell scripts and a configuration file to control the output text appearance to fair extent. It can very conveniently be used to build a Web based docx document conversion service. Some Makefiles and Windows batch files are provided for easy installation of the scripts. With unzippers like CakeCmd that can deal with corrupt Zip archives, this tool can extract text from corrupt docx documents in many cases, where MS word processor fails to even open them.
L2J is an alternate game server for Lineage2. The L2 protocol is reimplemented in the server, so you can play with this server without any modifications to the client (except changing the server IP address). The latest USA live client version is always supported, so don't expect this server to work with the PTS/Korean client.
RefSense is a set of command line tools for accessing PubMed. They allow you to search PubMed from a terminal (such as xterm), retrieve Web pages or PDFs, find related articles, convert to BibTeX, and much more by only using a keyboard. It also provides convenient word completion on titles, author names, etc.
envbot is an advanced modular IRC bot coded in bash. Features include SSL, IPv6, modularity (with several good modules already), transport modules (including OpenSSL, GnuTLS, netcat, etc.), loading/unloading/reloading of modules at runtime, rehashing configuration at runtime, advanced access control, and much more.
Shell Flags (shFlags) is a library written to greatly simplify the handling of command-line flags in Bourne based Unix shell scripts (such as those run with bash, dash, ksh, sh, and zsh). Most shell scripts use getopt for flag processing, but the different versions of getopt on various OSes make writing portable shell scripts difficult. shflags instead provides an API that doesn't change across shell and OS versions, so the script writer can be confident that the script will work.
Vee is a command-line blog tool that is very portable across Unix systems. It provides an interactive as well as a batch interface to maintain a log of entries. Formatting is done using a module architecture that allows a high degree of customization. There are minimal flags and no set up is required.
Frankenwall is a bash shell script intended to create a highly secure IPTables based Linux firewall/router with QOS/traffic shaping/bandwidth management. Be certain you know exactly what your network needs before using it. The primary focus of this project is security through an intimate understanding of your networking requirements. All configuration is done by editing text files.
