tblutils is a collection of several utilities for working with tabular text files: data written in plain text, with one row per line and columns separated by a common character (usually TAB or semicolon). It complements the usual Unix tools like cut and paste by providing enhanced versions that support column labels through-out, so that you can extract columns by name (tblcut), filter data using a mathematical expression (tblfilter), re-order columns without caring about the column index (tblcsort), join multiple files on a common index without having to pre-sort them (tblmerge), and much more.
Inject is program which can generate, inject and withdraw BGP routes, with a primary focus on network testing. It supports route and peer flapping, generation of random routes with (pseudo) random BGP attributes via a Cisco like CLI. Other features include a configuration file based on XML, test cases, help functions, and displaying of peer and route information.
thinkpad-status is a GUI interface to IBM ThinkPad laptop setup. It has been tested on IBM ThinkPad Lenovo Z60m. With its simple interface, you can control and change some settings on an IBM ThinkPad laptop, such as CPU power saving and scaling setup. It also lets you check battery status, thermal status, fan speed, ThinkLight settings, and LED status. Some of these features can also be used on other laptops.
driveplugger is a removable storage manager that safely puts control into the hands of the user. It makes devices such as USB drives, CDROMs, or any other removable media easy to use. The user can assign names to devices. Browsing, ejection, and other operations can be done through a tray icon.
The Enhanced TightVNC Viewer, SSVNC, adds encryption security to VNC connections. The package provides a GUI for Windows, MacOS X, and Unix that automatically starts up an STUNNEL SSL tunnel for SSL or ssh/plink for SSH connections to any VNC server and then launches the VNC Viewer to use the encrypted tunnel. On Unix and MacOS X, a VNC viewer with many new features is provided. The short name for this project is "ssvnc", for SSL/SSH VNC viewer.
The Pure Perl RayCaster is a small simple ray-casting application written completely in Perl without using OpenGL or any other 3D API library. For the GUI, it uses wxPerl. It can load a 3D object from a file (in RAW format), display the object in wireframe perspective view, allow you to orbit and zoom your camera, and produce a user defined size ray casting image of the current view in a predefined color theme, with or without smooth shading. It is well suited for educational purposes, in order to study, understand, tweak, and try well known fundamental 3D computer graphics techniques.
Foxtrot is a full text indexing software for PDF, OpenOffice.org 1 and 2, MS Word, and XLS files. The packge provides two different frontends: a Google-like searching tool implemented with Perl-Gtk and a PHP-based Web interface. The backend scans directories asynchronously, converts files to text, and indexes them in a MySQL database.
