SerLooK is a KDE application for inspecting data going over serial lines. It can work as a binary terminal that sends and receives data through a defined port (Point to Point mode) and displays them on separate views. Each view can be configured to display data in hexadecimal, decimal, octal, binary, and raw ASCII. It is also possible to perform I/O through terminal emulation views and define a secondary port and monitor the traffic between two external hosts using a "Y" cable (Snooper mode).
Bashinator is a bash shell script framework. It provides flexible and powerful message handling that lets you print to stdout, log (to syslog or a logfile), and mail messages with a single message function. Exhaustive information is included in messages to ease debugging. This information includes timestamps, message severity, source file, line numbers, and function names. A facility for tracing the function call stack is provided. Sub-command output can be logged by capturing the stdout/stderr of external commands to a dedicated temporary logfile. The framework also provides lockfile handling.
When writing anything that needs to communicate with a terminal in some way, it is almost always speaking some dialect of VT100 or ANSI. The libvt 100 library aims solely at parsing a stream of VT100/ANSI data and then letting the host application do the rendering. Many other projects also parse VT100/ANSI data, but their parser is always tangled up with the actual rendering of the data, making reuse in other projects problematic. The hope is that other projects will start using libvt100 and everyone can stop reinventing the wheel with each project.
Whiteshoe is a text-based shooter game in which you explore a changing maze and complete your goals before the other players complete theirs or find you. It is based on the old game hunt, but was totally rewritten from scratch to use TCP packets and be more modular and expandable in design.
MCM is a set of tools that ease the management of multiple servers. It's aimed at network or system administrators who need to connect to different servers by different means every day. It can be used via an ncurses interface without requiring an X server, and via a GNOME-based GUI.
Passfilter provides you with a terminal that has certain words blacklisted. Upon entering a predefined character sequence (defined as an MD5 sum), the terminal will erase the written characters with backspace, give an error message, and wait until the line is finished with the Enter key. The use case would be to stop you from accidentally entering passwords to IRC or possibly to other hosts, which could be compromised and could be logging your entry.
TorrentGrab is a script that searches isoHunt for specific keywords, parse results using regular expressions, and then downloads episode numbers not located in saved list. It's not too user friendly. Although configuration is straightforward, it still requires you to know regular expressions.
STermPro is a powerful program for serial port monitoring and control with protocols. STermPro lets you control a serial device with parameters, not bytes. An auto-answer feature helps with debugging and emulating external devices. Sending and receiving us supported simultaneously on many serial ports. Mixed strings with hex characters can be sent. Clearly arranged messages can be analyzed using the unique serial port flow visualization method. Custom serial devices and baud rates are supported.
