The Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is both a reference and a tutorial on shell scripting. This comprehensive book, the equivalent of 1,032 print pages, covers almost every aspect of shell scripting. It contains 382 profusely commented illustrative examples, a number of tables, and a cross-linked index/glossary. Not just a shell scripting tutorial, this book also provides an introduction to basic programming techniques, such as sorting and recursion. Included scripts are the Game of Life, a Perquackey variant, a Morse code trainer, and an implementation of the Gronsfeld Cipher. This book is suited for both individual study and classroom use. It covers Bash, up to and including version 4.2. Note that users of miniaturized single-board computers running Linux, such as the Raspberry Pi and the Beagle Bone, would find this Guide useful for learning and running Bash scripts to explore and expand the capabilities of these small, but powerful machines.
Chora is built upon the Horde Application Framework and provides a read-only browser interface to any number of version control repositories. Advanced features include a visual branch view of the repository's history, pretty-printed output, annotation, patchsets and basic statistics.
libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types. The goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks, file managers, and WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain meta-data about files. It includes a shell-command and bindings for Java (JNI) and Python.
WIPORT is a layer over the grx graphics library which provides a simple GUI API with memorization of the objects displayed in the various windows. This makes redrawing and printing to a scalable PostScript representation easy to do. Thanks to the grx library programs, using WIPORT works identically on the DOS graphical console, Linux+svgalib, and Linux+X11. WIPORT is written in C and comes with an Ada-95 binding.
Pootle is a Web-based translation and translation management tool. It provides a rich set of features for mangaging a translation project. It integrates components of the Translate Toolkit to provide error checkers for translation messages and the ability to download files in a number of formats: PO, XLIFF, CSV. Pootle can also provide compiled PO files for download. You can use it to assign work to translators in your team, and you can define goals to help focus the efforts of your translation. Pootle can run without a Web server or be proxied through your existing Apache server.
class.upload.php manages file uploads for you. It manages the uploaded file and allows you to do whatever you want with the file as many times as you want. If the file is an image, you can convert and resize it, rotate it, crop it in many ways. You can also add borders, frames, bevels, text labels, and watermarks or apply graphic filters such as unsharp mask, contrast or brightness correction, colorization, negative, greyscale, reflections, and more. Security features and file management functions are provided. Flash uploaders and XMLHttpRequest uploads are supported. The class can also work on local files, is useful for batch processing, and can circumvent open_basedir restrictions. Files can be output directly to the browser. The error messages are internationalized, and translations provided. It is compatible with PHP 4 and 5.
