The sigslot library is a portable, type-safe, thread-safe implementation of the signal/slot paradigm written entirely as a C++ template library. No preprocessor is required. The library can coexist with other C++ libraries, notably the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC), adding Qt-like functionality to any suitably instrumented classes. The library should work fine with any reasonably standards compliant C++ compiler that supports the STL and templates with optional template parameters. Partial template specialisation is NOT required.
Multixterm creates multiple xterms that can be driven together or separately. It can be used to login via SSH to multiple hosts and control them simultaneously, or for ad hoc things where you want to see the results as you type. Each xterm may also be driven separately. Multixterm is scriptable so that you can easily fire up, for example, a dozen xterms with a single command, tiled nicely on your screen. In addition to SSH, multixterm can drive rlogin, telnet, passwd, or any program that runs in an xterm.
Nitpicker is an Ethernet accounting tool, which listens on an interface and accumulates all packets into flows. As it has been designed for *BSD's BPF, it also runs on Linux using libpcap. It writes raw file format flow files and has a dumping utility, and includes some tools for ISP billing.
Editkit is a small and modular package, written in C, which extends Terry Loveall's lightweight editX project. Emacs and Wordstar bindings are currently available, and VT100 console or X frontends are provided. Since the binaries are small and require just the basic termcap or X11 libraries, it should be useful for small environments or rescue disks. It should also be easy to embed Editkit as an auxiliary tool in other projects. Still, it can be used as a lightweight clone of emacs with nearly identical basic editing commands and some custom-keys scriptability.
Respell converts English text between the American, British, and Canadian spelling conventions. It prompts the user for cases where more than one target spelling could be chosen for a source word. It can also create a 'universal' spelling which can be automatically converted to any of the three without loss of information.
