SparForte is a scripting language for large projects requiring reliable, scalable code, reduced maintenance time, and strong bug elimination requirements. It is targeted for programmers interested in quickly writing reliable software, educators wanting to teach disciplined programming skills, and advocates of the Ada/Spark programming languages.
Rodent filemanager is a fast, small, and powerful file manager. Its emphasis is on ease of use for the advanced user, not the computer illiterate. Rodent filemanager (a.k.a. xffm >= 4.6.0) is the next step in the evolution of Xffm, now with a threaded design optimized for multicore processors.
The klish is a framework for implementing Cisco-like command-line interfaces on Unix systems. It is configurable through XML files. "Klish" stands for "Kommand Line Interface SHell". The klish is a fork of clish-0.7.3. The original clish was developed by Graeme McKerrell. The klish adds some new features, but is compatible (as much as possible) with clish's XML configuration files.
Tiny Tcl 6.8 is a rommable, minimal Tcl implementation for embedded applications. Derived from the venerable Tcl 6.7 release, Tiny Tcl 6.8 has a solid Tcl feature set, excluding newer capabilities of Tcl 7 and 8 such as the bytecode compiler, namespaces, sockets, and async event handling, among others. Excluding C library functions, Tiny Tcl compiles down to less than 60 Kbytes on most machines, far smaller than any Tcl 7 or Tcl 8 derivatives.
The Middleman System (mdm) is a set of utilities that help you parallelize your shell scripts. Its design is based on ideas from superscalar computer processors: it fetches commands as your script is running, detects potential interference between commands on the fly, and issues commands for execution in parallel as appropriate.
The sniffy project can trace/log the data of any pseudo terminal in the system. Due to the way the terminal works, such a terminal trace provides complete information of what happened on the terminal screen, and sniffy is able to display/replay this information. It consists of a kernel module able to connect/hook on the pseudo terminal, a program to display the contents of any pseudo terminal on the fly, a daemon process tracing the pseudo terminal content into the file, and a replay program to replay any stored pseudo terminal session.
'pksh' is a hack of the popular 'tcsh' for packets, bytes hosts, and protocols counts. It is a shell, a network sniffer, a query language for network monitoring, and finally a rendering engine to display in a form readable for humans and network administrators all traffic on LAN segments. It aims to give on character-based terminals the same level of information 'ntop' already provides via its embedded Web interface. It does not continuously fill the terminal with packet/byte/protocol information, but allows the user to perform his daily job at the shell level and take a look at network only via a set of commands implemented as extensions to native tcsh built-ins. Output can be filtered/sorted/paged/mailed/etc. using native Unix commands.
