Weeder is a utility which takes fingerprints (crc and length) of files. Once a fingerprint is taken it can display or delete duplicates in vast amounts of files. Usually this applies to the maintenance of collections of pictures or archives. It serves as well for integrity checking purposes. Weeder is designed to be unlimited in the number of files processed and for speed.
Lucifer is a burn-in program suppoering Linux and DOS. It tests RAM, hard disks, processors, and floating-point processors by running stress tests to ensure that the hardware is not likely to have trouble as it ages. Lucifer should be portable, although it is only tested with Linux and DOS.
Many of us are using a "light" windows manager, as WindowMaker, while using the KDE tools, because they're great. The trouble is, the links in the KDE menu can't be used in the WindowMaker menu (or AfterStep, Fvwm...). So you may find it not easy to have KDE tools in the WindowMaker menu. This Perl script solves this problem: it "translates" the KDE-style links into links in wmconfig-style, used by WindowMaker and many other window managers.
The netpipes package makes TCP/IP streams usable in shell scripts. It can also simplify client/server code by allowing the programmer to skip all the tedious programming bits related to sockets and concentrate on writing a filter/service. <P>Applications of these utilities can include file transfer, network backups, HTTP queries, remote procedure calls, and TCP daemon testing. <P>The SSL encryption filter available in the US/Canada version can be applied by shell scripts communicating with secure HTTPDs and can be used to make an SSL IMAPD out of a non-SSL one. (requires the SSLeay library).
PPP-Setup is a small utility that writes up chatscripts and options based on very simple questions that you either know or can find out with a quick call to your ISP. There are 2 versions: one for normal non-PAP logins, and the other for PAP logins. The PAP version works for any ISP that works with Windows 95's dial up networking.
