se is a screen-oriented version of the classic UNIX text editor ed. The editor implements many of the commands of ed, but instead of being line-oriented, se is screen-oriented. The command syntax is very familiar to users who already know ed. If you get stuck, there is a built-in help system that describes many of the available commands. Many configurable options can be loaded from a .serc file. se can be run interactively or in a script via the included scriptse utility. The editor is portable across many platforms, supporting major Linux and BSD distributions as well as other systems like GNU, Minix, Haiku, OpenSolaris, and Cygwin.
pulseaudio-mixer-cli is an interactive ncurses UI to control the volume of PulseAudio streams. It is somewhat like alsamixer, but focused not on sink volume levels (which can actually be controlled via alsamixer, with the alsa-pulse plugin), but rather on the volume of individual streams from applications, allowing the user to balance sound levels between them. Interaction with pulseaudio is done through the DBus interface, and the UI is designed to be as simple as possible, without heavy DE dependencies like GNOME libs or KDE/QT.
