FileScanner is a Perl script which searches through directory trees and compares text file contents to a list of specified words and phrases. FileScanner outputs HTML-based reports which include statistics and clickable links to the pages it has found. Virtual hosts support for hosted domains is included.
Jerry's Music Review System generates an HTML page from a simple flat file containing the band name, album name, date purchased, and a review of the album. It arranges the information and cross-indexes on band name and album name. It also displays a list of the 10 most recently purchased albums. Examples can be found on the homepage.
pstotext extracts text (in the ISO 8859-1 character set) from a PostScript or PDF (Portable Document Format) file. Thus, pstotext is similar to the ps2ascii program that comes with ghostscript. The output of pstotext is better than that of ps2ascii, because pstotext deals better with punctuation and ligatures.
