Tmpf is tiny script (written in Ruby) to write standard output to a temporary file, run an application with the name of that file as an argument, then delete the temporary file when done. This is useful when you want to pipe output to a program that only accepts files, not standard input. Example: cat myfile.ps | tmpf gv (equivalent to: gv myfile.ps). Despite the incredible simplicity of this script, there is nothing quite like it provided among the standard Unix tools.
tocgen is a versatile command line cdrdao toc file generator, written in Python, of particular use to those wishing to split tapes and LPs into tracks. The ability to split a wav file into regular sized tracks with little effort is what most distinguishes tocgen from tocmake and wavtoc. It was written with a view towards clarity and therefore should be easy to modify, if necessary.
torrentRss is a program that can be used to download TV shows and keep up to date with released torrents on thepiratebay.org. By using the RSS feed that tpb generates, you can run this program and have it update all episodes. A text file is used for the database, which is very primitive as of right now.
txtbdf2ps is a small, self-contained Perl script that converts ASCII text files into Postscript using a given bitmap (BDF) font. (The character bitmaps are embedded into the PS file as a Type 3 font.) The script can be used to print texts in international character sets or for proofreading BDF fonts. Features include justified paragraphs, adjustable margins, and a slim & simple resulting PS.
The ucs-fonts package contains versions of all the "-misc-fixed-*" and Adobe X Window System bitmap fonts which have been extended to the largest possible Unicode subset that is sensible for these font sizes. These fonts are commonly used with xterm and many other applications. This package also includes a tool to convert these Unicode fonts into other encodings, such as the many ISO 8859 sets.
