'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.
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.

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.
Pexpect is a Python Expect-like module. It spawns child applications, controls them, and responds to expected patterns in their output. It can be used for automating interactive applications such as ssh, ftp, passwd, telnet, etc. It can be used to automate setup scripts for duplicating software package installations on different servers. It can be used for automated software testing. It should work on any platform that supports the standard Python pty module. Its interface was designed to be easy-to-use, so performing simple tasks is easy. It includes an ANSI/VT100 terminal screen scraping module.
