np is a compact NMEA parser. It provides quick and flexible access to GPS data from various sources. Data can be read from devices, text files, STDIN, or GPSD (raw mode). The list of supported NMEA sentences includes $GPRMC, $GPGGA, $GPGSA, $GPGSV, as well as Garmin's proprietary $PGRME and $PGRMM. By employing user-definable stylesheets, the parser output can be adapted to numerous application scenarios. The parser can be queried directly from the console or through the included Web front end.
Khayyam is a program for composing 3D scenes for rendering (similar to Poser and DAZ Studio). It can import character and scene models from many model formats (Poser, MD5, BSP, OBJ, 3DS, Collada, and formats used in most Illusion games). There is support for basic object placement, scaling, posing skeletal characters, and lighting. Scenes can be exported in POV-Ray format for rendering. Khayyam is implemented as a shell program using many libraries from the Floyd and Sodipodi projects.
mtail is a small tail workalike that performs output coloring using ANSI escape sequences (although the sequences are overridable, so you could cause it to output something else, e.g., HTML font tags). It is written in python, is fairly small, and should be relatively platform-independent.
cvsq (CVS queued) is a tool that enables developers with a dial-up connection to work comfortably with CVS. It accepts same arguments as CVS but instead of directly processing them, cvsq stores all requests in a queue and handles them later. This way, you can mark several files for commit and upload them when you're connected to the Net.
