MP3-CD-Sleeve is composed of two Perl scripts that produce HTML or LaTeX-style pages that can be printed as the index sleeve of an (MP3) CD. It briefly lists the directory hierarchy, by enumerating directories for ease of use in MP3 CD players. The LaTeX script tries to fit everything in a 5" x 5" (12.5cm x 12.5 cm) frame with wrap-around at the edges (no fold-out feature is included yet, it produces just the front cover).
magicfilter is an extensible and customizable automatic printer filter. It selects an appropriate conversion technique for the input data by seeking for magic numbers, and then utilizing the appropriate conversion utility. It is primarily intended for use as the "input filter" by the lpd print spooler. The options accepted by magicfilter are exactly the ones passed to the input filter by lpd.
Makecheque is a tool (written in Ruby) to print bank cheques, either using bank-supplied stationey, or blank check paper (in conjuntion with a MICR font and perhaps special laser toner).
