Elm Millennium Edition is a text-based mail client. There are two branches: Elm 2.4ME+, which is based on Elm 2.4, and Elm ME+ 2.5, which also incorporates some code from Elm 2.5. Elm Millennium Edition contains enhanced MIME and character set support. A subset of UTF-8 (Unicode) is handled. It can read mail from a local mbox and POP and IMAP folders and can pass mail to the PGP or GPG programs. It can also view digests as a mailbox and reassemble fragmented (message/partial) messages. It includes modules for TLS/SSL, iconv, and SMTP.
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.
