Shell Flags (shFlags) is a library written to greatly simplify the handling of command-line flags in Bourne based Unix shell scripts (such as those run with bash, dash, ksh, sh, and zsh). Most shell scripts use getopt for flag processing, but the different versions of getopt on various OSes make writing portable shell scripts difficult. shflags instead provides an API that doesn't change across shell and OS versions, so the script writer can be confident that the script will work.
Soicmp consists of a server and a client. It allows a user to connect to a remote shell daemon by using the ICMP protocol instead of TCP. Entirely written in Python, soicmp is a working proof-of-concept to demonstrate that data can be transmitted across a network by hiding it in traffic that normally does not contain payloads.
Shellac allows you to run powerful UNIX tools within Mac OS X Automator workflows. It includes cat, cut, grep, head, paste, sort, tail, uniq, wc, and more. Aqua controls can be used to tweak any setting of the tool. Plain-language descriptions may be read straight from the Automator interface, and tooltips are provided. Tools may be found by their UNIX names. Either explicit text, files, or folders are accepted as input. It is packaged as a self-contained application for easy installation.
Shellp is a shell helper library. It is intended to make it easier to write commandline-based applications. Commands are easy to define, and can be entered interactively or by reading from a file or standard input. If a graphical workspace is available, a Qt-based interface can be used. Otherwise, an ncurses-based one may be used. If the platform doesn't support that, either, reading from a file is still an option.
Shuriken is an XML-based tool for Linux system administrators to set up spans of time when the system should be up. Using the RTC daily alarm (requires BIOS, hardware, Linux support), the system will automatically power-on (if it is off) for these intervals. Automatic power-off is supported, but this feature is not recommended if users intend to log in to the system and not have it shut down on them.
Simple Settings Dialog (ssd) enables a script author to easily construct a simple dialog (e.g. for configuration purposes) that can be be presented to the user during script execution. It is build on QT4 and implements the most commonly used widgets from QT. It is intended for sysadmins for scripting purposes. The goals are that creation of a dialog should be done in very few lines, and the output from ssd (when the user has made his/her choice) should be simple and parseable by bash. The code (or markup) for ssd can either be stored in a separate file or embedded in the bash script, allowing one-file scripting.
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.
