Cancan is a text-based, interactive utility similar to telnet, but with a number of extensions useful for MUD playing. Another use might be to provide line editing, aliases, etc., for those services that have a simple telnet interface. Cancan features aliases, actions, key bindings, text highlighting, substitutions, and line editing with history and completion.
ConMan is a serial console management program designed to support a large number of console devices and simultaneous users. It supports local serial devices, remote terminal servers (via the telnet protocol), IPMI Serial-Over-LAN (via FreeIPMI), Unix domain sockets, and external processes (e.g., using Expect to control connections over telnet, ssh, or IPMI Serial-Over-LAN). Its features include logging (and optionally timestamping) console device output to file, connecting to consoles in monitor (R/O) or interactive (R/W) mode, allowing clients to share or steal console write privileges, and broadcasting client output to multiple consoles.
The WebTTY package allows any Linux terminal processes to be controlled via a text area HTML element on a Web page. The output from the server process is collected on the server side, and is sent to a textarea element. Keypresses in the textarea are collected on the client side and sent to the server process. WebTTY uses AJAX/DHTML patterns to achieve in-page updates without refreshing the entire page.
ClusTerm is used to SSH into a cluster of systems and execute the same command on all the systems. It combines a number of Gnome Terminal Widgets (VTE) in a single graphical window and copies the input to one terminal to all other terminals. It shows the differences between different terminals. Different layouts: table, row, column, and notebook. It is a GNOME application based on libvte.
Fosfat is a C library for providing read-only access to a Smaky formatted disk. Currently, only a tool and a FUSE extension that use this library can be used for reading a directory and copying a file. Smaky is a system developed in Switzerland at the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne).
