AFT (Almost Free Text) is a document preparation system. It is mostly free form, meaning that there is little intrusive markup; AFT source documents look a lot like plain old ASCII text. It has a few rules for structuring your document, more to do with formatting your text than embedding lots of commands, and it produces all types of output (HTML, XHTML, LaTeX, roll-your-own XML, etc.). All that needs to be done is to edit a rule file. You can even customize your own rule files for specialized output.
bkmrkconv will convert Netscape's bookmarks.html file into a series of interconnected HTML pages which can be put online. The pages are heavily customizable and examples are included for a Yahoo-like portal. The program is useful for accessing your bookmarks from a remote machine or even just for making your links look prettier.
Cowsay is the easy way to add speaking and thinking cows (and a few other creatures) to anything. Any message you like, even in large figlet letters, can be rattled off by these ASCII critters. Cowsay comes with over 40 creatures that can be bent to your sick and twisted will. New "cows" can be easily bred by those versed in the appropriate dark arts. Cowsay is more useful than most of the items found in SkyMall catalogues, and a lot less expensive.
Data::Locations is a virtual file manager which allows you to write and read data (text and binary) to and from virtual files (think of bubbles). Moreover, this manager allows you to (recursively) define "magic" insertion points in these virtual files (bubbles inside other bubbles) which can be filled in (inflated) later (through a "straw", i.e., the object's reference), at any convenient time and in any order you like. Since this software acts purely in memory, there is no slowing down through costly file input/output (i.e., no temporary files).
Elvis is a clone of vi/ex, the standard UNIX editor. Elvis supports nearly all of the vi/ex commands, in both visual mode and ex mode. Elvis adds support for multiple files, multiple windows, a variety of display modes including "hex" and "html", on-line help, WYSIWYG printing, and other miscellaneous extensions.
HTML::EP is a server-side embedded HTML system in the style of PHP3, that allows you to combine the full power of Perl with your HTML pages. HTML::EP runs as a separate CGI binary or (for full speed) as a mod_perl package. It includes database access via DBI, the Perl Database Interface, session support and allows quite easy extension via a modular, OO interface.
Kmy-regex is an regular expression library for Java. It can compile a regular expression into bytecode and then load it into JVM on the fly. In the environments where class loading is not an option (such as applets) it can produce an interpreted (but slower) form of the regular expression.
