Since v2.04, bash has allowed you to intelligently program and extend its standard completion behavior to achieve complex command lines with just a few keystrokes. Imagine typing ssh [Tab] and being able to complete on hosts from your ~/.ssh/known_hosts files. Or typing man 3 str [Tab] and getting a list of all string handling functions in the UNIX manual. mount system: [Tab] would complete on all exported file-systems from the host called system, while make [Tab] would complete on all targets in Makefile. This project was conceived to produce programmable completion routines for the most common Linux/UNIX commands, reducing the amount of typing sysadmins and programmers need to do on a daily basis.
stress is a workload generator and stress tester for Unix-like systems. It will impose user-specified amounts of CPU, I/O, RAM, and HDD load and report any errors it detects. It is used for automated stress testing and for debugging system components that fail only or more often when under load. It runs on x86, PPC64, and PPC 32 GNU/Linux, Tru64, SPARC Solaris, and other platforms.
runawk is a small wrapper for the AWK interpreter that helps one write standalone AWK scripts. Its main feature is to provide a module/library system for AWK which is somewhat similar to Perl's "use" command. It also allows one to select a preferred AWK interpreter and to set up the environment for AWK scripts. Dozens of ready for use [modules].awk are also provided.
Partition Logic is a partitioning and disk management tool for PC-compatible computers. It includes its own standalone operating system and GUI, and can fit on a single bootable floppy (or CD). It creates, modifies, resizes, deletes, formats, and moves partitions, and copies hard disks. It is based on the Visopsys operating system.
Laptop Mode Tools allows you to control various power management settings based on AC/battery power state. Among other things, it controls Linux's "Laptop Mode" feature that allows your hard drive to spin down for extended periods. It can also control CPU frequency scaling and screen blanking timeouts (both terminal and X). It supports automatic hibernation when battery is low.
Nyagua is a little piece of software that may help you to manage your home aquarium. It can store data about measurements in aquariums and produce graphs from these. It can store data about expenses and produce a report with yearly, monthly, and daily costs. It reports the compatibility between fishes and plants in its database. It can import fishbase.org XML data, and your own pictures can be added.
Stunnix VBS-Obfus protects your VBScript code from potential analysis, study, or reworking by unwanted parties. It's both an obfuscator and encoder for the VBScript code. It converts the VBScript in raw .vbs files, or in ASP or HTML pages into a highly obfuscated form, making it extremely difficult to study, analyse, or reuse, while fully retaining functionality of the original source code. It optionally adds expiration and hostname checking. It has a lot of options to control all aspects of code hiding, and has full support for all syntax constructs. It is designed to be multi-module aware.
