bed is an adjustable data format binary editor. Data formats are ASCII, unsigned and signed integers, float, bit-flags, bit-fields, labels, EBCDIC, and time_t. Different sizes and byte orderings are possible. Data types can be used in structures. Other data formats, filters, and procedures can be defined in plugins. It features copy, paste, undo, redo, search, replace, marks, record/play, and context sensitive help. bed can be used to edit raw hard drives. Under Linux and FreeBSD it is even usable without the X Window System.
PICI-NMS is an object oriented middleware which makes possible sending messages in a networked environment or on a single host between applications using the library provided. The supported message sending mechanism is "publish/subscribe" and this is backed up by a very easy-to-use and intuitive C++ API which hides the underlying socket interface to make the message sending as transparent to the client as possible.
sdparm has a command line interface for getting and setting SCSI mode page fields. Fields can be referred to by an acronym or a numerical address. It has support for various SCSI transport and vendor-specific mode pages. It also decodes Vital Product Data (VPD) pages and can send some simple SCSI commands. sdparm was originally written for Linux with ports to FreeBSD, Solaris, Tru64, and Windows.
Rateless-coded Transport is a set of applications that use ground-breaking error correcting codes technology. They support fast reliable transmission over UDP, live content streaming and Internet multicast trees, duplex firewall transparency, ultra-fast reliable transport for WANs (up to 40-times faster than TCP), and optimal peer-to-peer multi-source download protocols.
cw is a non-intrusive real-time ANSI color wrapper for common Unix-based commands. It is designed to simulate the environment of the commands being executed, so that if a person types 'du', 'df', 'ping', etc. in their shell it will automatically color the output in real-time according to a definition file containing the color format desired. It has support for wildcard match coloring, tokenized coloring, headers/footers, case scenario coloring, command-line- dependent definition coloring, and includes over 50 pre- made definition files.
knuckle cracker includes a tool that compares two binary files and generates human-readable (and writable) patch scripts signed with MD5. It features smart string/binary recognition. Non-printable string portions are presented in C- like escaping style ("\x20\7\r\n"). It also features a utility that applies such a patch.
