Boxes is a text filter that can draw any kind of box around its input text. Box design choices range from simple boxes to complex ASCII art. A box can also be removed and repaired, even if it has been badly damaged by editing of the text inside. Since the generated boxes may be open on any side, the program can also be used to create regional comments in any programming language. New box designs of all sorts can easily be added and shared by appending to a free format configuration file. In addition to being a command line tool, Boxes integrates well with any text editor that supports filters.
John the Ripper is a fast password cracker, currently available for many flavors of Unix, Windows, DOS, BeOS, and OpenVMS. Its primary purpose is to detect weak Unix passwords. It supports several crypt(3) password hash types commonly found on Unix systems, as well as Windows LM hashes. On top of this, lots of other hashes and ciphers are added in the community-enhanced version (-jumbo), and some are added in John the Ripper Pro.

Change is a non-interactive text editor, similar to sed, but much easier to use. It works by substituting a specified target pattern in the source text with another specified text pattern. It can operate on multiple files specified on the command line, or it can operate upon stdin/stdout in filter mode.
compare is similar to cmp but faster and with better readable output. compare examines one file and standard in, or two files on a byte by byte basis, and prints the file position of the first difference it finds, first in decimal and then in hexadecimal, followed by the differing byte content in hexadecimal and a quoted character.
p is a pager like more or less. It is more conservative with screen handling and thus does not screw up the screen as easily as more or less. p uses its own termcap package with TERMPATH support that makes it easy to have a local .termcap file in the user's home directory to override bad termcap entries. p supports three text attributes for nroff: bold, italic, and bold-italic. p is able to find patterns in higlighted text, unlike more or less. p also filters out unprintable characters.
