Lynis is an auditing and hardening tool for Unix derivatives like Linux/BSD/Solaris. It scans systems to detect software and security issues. Besides security-related information, it will also scan for general system information, installed packages, and possible configuration mistakes. The software is aimed at assisting automated auditing, software patch management, and vulnerability and malware scanning of Unix-based systems.
The MirBSD Korn Shell (mksh) is an actively developed successor of pdksh (the Public Domain Korn Shell), aimed at producing a shell good for interactive use, but with the primary focus on scripting. It is intended to be portable to most *nix-like operating systems as long as they're not too obscure. mksh incorporates improvements from OpenBSD and Debian, as well as bugfixes and enhancements developed for the MirOS, FreeWRT, and MidnightBSD projects and Android. The emacs command line editing mode is UTF-8 capable, and Byte Order Marks are ignored in scripts. The shell supports large files, as well as all pdksh and some csh, AT&T ksh, zsh, and GNU bash features, is compatible with the Bourne shell and POSIX (within limits), has no limit on array sizes, and incorporates some other useful builtins and features. While being already fast and small (without losing functionality), flags to make it even smaller can be given at compile time. An interactive shell reads "~/.mkshrc" on startup.
tzls and tzx are commandline utilities for quickly unpacking or listing the contents of various types of common Unix archive files, which may be compressed in any of several ways. The supported compression types are bzip2, gzip, and compress. The supported archive types are tar, cpio, zip, rar, and arj. The tools are implemented as shell scripts, so no compilation is required.
fff and ffl are tools for searching for files and directories from the Unix shell with more integrated "shell-like" behaviour and simpler syntax than find(1), though find(1) is still used to perform the actual searches. In particular, there is no need to quote wildcards, and searches are case-insensitive. Matching results are shown one per line. fff displays full paths, and ffl relative paths. Detailed find(1) options can be appended to the fff/ffl command line if desired. These utilities are based entirely on shell aliases and functions, so no compliation is required.
TVEz is a browser-based system to manage movies, shows, and clips stored on local or remote file systems. It is also a front end to the XINE video player that makes the control of the player possible from the Web browser. It retrieves information about movies, including an image of the cover, from IMDB, and stores that information in a MySQL database. The database entries are fully searchable by director, writers, actors, titles, etc. It includes a rating system for movies by which movies can be sorted such that your most favorite ones appear on top of the list. The Web-based configuration is generic enough so that any kind of show can easily be added to the shows listing. The playlist is fully manageable.
Ch is an embeddable C/C++ interpreter for cross-platform scripting, shell programming, 2D/3D plotting, numerical computing, and embedded scripting. It is the simplest solution to numerical computing and visualization in the domain of C/C++. It supports the ISO 1990 C Standard (C90), major features in C99 (complex numbers, variable length arrays or VLAs, type generic functions, long long data type, etc), classes in C++, and extensions to the C language like nested functions, string types, etc. It can be embedded in other applications and hardware and used as a scripting language. C/C++ code is interpreted directly with no compilation to intermediate code. It supports Linux, Windows, MacOS X, Solaris, HP-UX, and FreeBSD.
cvsroot is a script to help keep track of multiple sites when using CVS, and in particular the CVSROOT and CVS_RSH environment variables for those sites. It creates a $HOME/.cvsroot file, with shortcut names representing the different CVS sites. The new environment variables appropriate to the site selected will then be set, and a new shell will be spawned to keep the variables. In this way, you do not have to keep setting the environment yourself, and can rely on the script to keep track of things for you.
