gSplit is a tool that allows you to split and assemble any files you want. It can be used to split big files to be able to store them on different devices. After assembling the different parts of a file, you can then check the file integrity to determine whether everything is now ready to use.
SynchroDir is a backup and synchronization utility. Each backup is the subject of a recordable "backup project". This feature allows you to save projects corresponding to different computers, servers, external hard drives, USB keys, etc. You can also backup data of computer Y to computer Z from a controlling computer X. Each backup project includes an unlimited number of "jobs". At the end of the backup process, a log file is available. Each job has a source and a destination, each corresponding to a volume or a directory. The volume or directory must be "mounted", either locally or over the network.
a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.
XML::RDB is a Perl extension to convert XML files into RDB schemas and populate/unpopulate them. It works with XML schemas too. It analyzes relationships within either an XML file or an XML schema to create RDB tables to hold that document (or any XML document that conforms to the XML schema). It takes an XML file or URL as input for the XML::DOM::Parser, and extracts information to build and write DDL. An attempt is made to recognize relations within the XML structure then translate it to the DDL. That generated DDL is then loaded, parsing the DOM tree a second time to extract and load the data. At the bottom of the DDL are select statements to help get a view of those relations found, and XML data. xml_rdb also dumps the data back to XML format.
Networkled is a small system tray utility which gives a graphical indication of the received and transmitted traffic. It relies on the proc file system and more specifically on the existence of the file "/proc/net/dev". It can be used with any system tray that follows the "Free Desktop System Tray Specification" and has a proc file system.
Launch is a menu for favorite applications and documents. Installing Launch creates a folder in the home directory called "Aliases". Any number of documents and shortcuts can be placed in there and arranged in a hierarchy of subfolders. At login, Launch scans this directory, and creates a menu in the status area from which these files can be opened instantly. There are no other options or features in the menu; just exactly what is found in "Aliases" at login and no more.
