Since proper documentation is crucial for optimal use of an operating systems and its tools, it is important that each and every application has a man page describing at least all the available command line options and a general overview of what the program does. If the author of a particular piece of software did not provide a proper man page for his or her project, the Missing Man Pages Project aims to provide it.
Regex-markup performs regular expression-based text markup according to used-defined rules. This can be used to color syslog files as well as the output of programs such as ping, traceroute, gcc, etc. The hierarchal rules-format is simple to understand, yet very powerful. Regex-markup is written entirely in C, and uses POSIX regular expressions to do much of its work.
Gpsdrive is a map-based navigation system. It displays your position on a zoomable map provided from a NMEA-capable GPS receiver. The maps are autoselected for the best resolution, depending of your position, and the displayed image can be zoomed. Maps can be downloaded from the Internet with one mouse click. The program provides information about speed, direction, bearing, arrival time, actual position, and target position. Speech output is also available.
FlyWay is a navigational route planner for pilots. It allows the user to find and select waypoints (airports, navigational aids, and fixes), then calculates distances, courses, wind corrections, and times. Information about the waypoints is provided (including frequencies, elevation, fuel availability, and runway descriptions). The route data is also used to fill in an editable FAA Flight Plan form. FlyWay has an X11 GUI based on the PyQt library.
