The GUIShell project is a collection of utilities facilitating the use of the GTK+ toolkit in shell scripts through the gtkshell utility. The ACE configuration environment provides sample scripts utilizing gtkshell for desktop utilities. rootcat provides the ability to display messages to the root window using Xft, allowing one to write status display scripts.
FIM (Fbi IMproved) aims to be a highly customizable and scriptable image viewer targeted at the users who are comfortable with software like the Vim text editor or the Mutt mail user agent. It is based on the Fbi image viewer and works either in the Linux framebuffer console or in the X system. It features the ability to filter the list of images with regular expressions, Vim-like autocommands, command line autocompletion and history, completely customizable key bindings, external/internal scriptability, and much more.
dwarf-ng is a small and powerful object file manipulator. With dwarf-ng, you can read, edit, and manipulate section headers, inject code or data, and create new section headers of object files. Currently, it handles object files in the PE, Mach-O, and ELF formats. For the moment, dwarf-ng only has a command-line interface. dwarf-ng is fully scriptable (as it has a scripting language), and is flexibly configurable.
Nonpareil is a microcode-level simulator for HP calculators introduced between 1972 and 1982, including the HP-35, HP-45, HP-55, HP-25, HP-34C, HP-38C, HP-41CV, HP-11C, HP-12C, HP-15C, HP-16C, and other models. The necessary microcode is included, as is a microcode assembler. The GTK+ toolkit is used for the user interface.
fsc2 is a program for controlling spectrometers. Experiments are done by interpretation of scripts written in a simple language, EDL. Devices are handled via modules in order to allow easy integration of new devices. More than 50 devices are supported, connected via serial port, GPIB, LAN, or USB as well as data acquisition cards, etc. The state of an experiment can be remotely monitored via a built-in Web server.
nefu (network fidelity utility) is a Unix daemon that monitors services over the network. It uses a "no false alarms" fault verification algorithm, and understands network dependancies. Natively-monitored protocols include ICMP echo (ping), SSH, IPP, DNS, HTTP, POP, NTP, IMAP, SMTP, and LDAP, as well as having facilities to execute external programs. Status pages are available via finger or the Web.
AVInfo is a utility for displaying AVI, MPEG (1 and 2), OGM, MKV, and IFO (DVD) information. It returns the length of a clip, FPS, resolution, codec, audio and video bit rate, number of key frames, sound parameters, the number and type of streams, and the language for audio/subtitles. It then generates a file list with statistics (HTML, plain text, or CSV).
The Heirloom Development Tools provide yacc, lex, m4, make, and SCCS as portable derivatives of the utilities released by Sun as part of OpenSolaris. The OpenSolaris utilities were in turn derived from the original Unix versions, and are assumed be conforming implementations of the POSIX standard.
Usepackage is a tool for managing the Unix environment for a multi-tool, multi-platform site. It is designed to simplify login scripts and allow administrators to control users' environments centrally. This tool should be considered primarily designed for sites where users have to deal with a number of different tools, or versions of tools, that are installed in different locations and require environment variables to be set. This is particularly a problem for developers, or anyone who has to manage a large toolset across multiple platforms (e.g. different versions of the Sun JDK which require various environment variables to be set correctly). One or more central configuration files control a number of different "packages" and their associated environment and dependencies for different platforms (this includes the standard PATH, MANPATH, and LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables). A single user command, use, can be invoked to source the appropriate environment information into the users' current shell.
