pix IR remote project allows you to remotely control console utilities via a TV remote control. It does not support all of the TV remotes out there, but should work with most of them. It features a utility to catch the TV remote's byte-codes (like the All-In-One TV-remotes) and a utility to output the commands sent by the remote as text to standard output. Applications for this software include system automation or remote control of an mp3 player.
Sportwire contains the essential components to translate an ANPA sports newswire feed into XML format and then to read the XML into relational tables. The story parser is extensible and can be easily adapted. Parser classes included in this release can parse scoreboards, game updates, recaps and previews; it is just the components needed to construct sports news websites using ANPA news stories and a relational database. Also, since the ANPA tagging scheme is not fully normalized, the parser must use some heuristics to match certain incoming news items with the specific games.
The xfilesel program is used to copy the X selection into a file and to copy a file contents to the X selection. It acts as a bridge between applications that support selections and console applications (for example with default Midnight Commander clipboard file ~/.cedit/cooledit.clip).
