Plucker is an offline Web and eBook viewer for Palm OS-based handheld devices and PDAs. It comes with Unix/Linux tools and conduits, and Windows and Mac OS X conduits that let you decide exactly what part of the Web you want to view on your PDA (as long as it's in standard HTML or text format). The requested Web pages are processed, compressed, and transferred to the PDA for viewing by the Plucker viewer.
Card Services for Linux is a complete PCMCIA or PC Card support package. It includes a set of loadable kernel modules that implement a version of the Card Services applications program interface, a set of client drivers for specific cards, and a card manager daemon that can respond to card insertion and removal events, loading and unloading drivers on demand. It supports hot swapping of most card types, so cards can be safely inserted and ejected at any time.
Rain's PPP scripts simplify the use and setup of pppd. Features include connection time logging, a ppp-off that works right with more than one pppd running, dial-on-demand support for pppd 2.3.x., and more. Another interesting feature is that the scripts keep track of your connect speed and time, and included is an mirc script to show connection status from a remote machine, as well as a shell script that works for *IX boxes.
KBACKUP is intended for handling of backups no matter whether they reside on disk or tape or even in files. As most other backup programs available today are either confusing the user with lots of long command line options, or user friendly but not powerful at all, the aim behind writing KBACKUP was to provide a user friendly yet powerful backup program. It is also intended to be kept compatible to existing and well proven archive formats, so you can restore your archives even if you should not have KBACKUP around anymore.
GNU Bash is an sh-compatible command language interpreter that executes commands read from the standard input or from a file. Bash also incorporates useful features from the Korn and C shells (ksh and csh). Bash is intended to be a conforming implementation of the IEEE POSIX Shell and Tools specification (IEEE Working Group 1003.2).
Tcsh is an enhanced but completely compatible version of the Berkeley UNIX C shell. It is a command language interpreter usable both as an interactive login shell and a shell script command processor. It includes a command line editor, programmable word completion, command and file name completion, listing, spelling correction, a history mechanism, job control, and a bunch of small additions to the csh shell itself.
Zsh is a UNIX command interpreter (shell) which of the standard shells most resembles the Korn shell (ksh). It includes enhancements of many types, notably in the command-line editor, options for customising its behaviour, filename globbing, features to make C-shell (csh) users feel more at home and extra features drawn from tcsh.
