DIRT is a simple directory stack utility that lets the user use the same directory stack across terminals and sessions. The stack of directories is stored in a file (.dirtpile) in your home directory. All shell sessions access the same file, and thus, all of them use the same stack. DIRT supports jumping to specific entries, push, pop, swap the CWD with the top of the stack, and jump to the top of the stack. A set of CSH shell aliases are also included, and required for proper functioning.
XSH (the XML Editing Shell) is a very powerful command-line shell designed to allow easy navigation and manipulation of XML documents. XSH may be used either interactively or for off-line XML processing (like bash). XPath can be used to select parts of an XML document to be listed or processed. The system shell and Perl are also accessible from XSH in a very natural way. XSH itself is written in Perl using the XML::LibXML bindings of the libxml2 library.
FSGuide is a Norton Commander clone used by many hosting firms and individuals for advanced file management through the Web.

HenPlus is a SQL shell written in Java that works for any database that has JDBC support. It provides commandline history, commandline completion, and can handle multiple connects to different databases at once. Database-independant table dumps, aliases, and variables are also supported.
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.
