C-Kermit is a combined serial and network communication software package offering a consistent, medium-independent, cross-platform approach to connection establishment, terminal sessions, file transfer, character-set translation, numeric and alphanumeric paging, and automation of communication tasks. Recent versions include FTP and HTTP clients as well as an SSH interface, all of which can be scripted and aware of character-sets. It supports built-in security methods, including Kerberos IV, Kerberos V, SSL/TLS, and SRP, FTP protocol features such as MLSD, and source-code parity with Kermit 95 2.1 for Windows and OS/2.
The console-tools package allows you to set-up and manipulate the Linux console (ie. text screen and keyboard), and manipulate console-font files. It was developed from version 0.94 of the standard `kbd' package, and integrates many fixes and enhancements, including new kbd features up to 0.99.
ttyload is a tty-based utility for monitoring the load averages on a Unix system. It presents 3 graphs, one for each of the 3 common load average numbers (1min, 5min, 15min) that things like uptime normally show you. Each graph is in its own color, and if two or more of the graphs happen to intersect, then the color changes to reflect that.
