This is a set of fault tolerant search utilities. whichman allows you to search for man pages that match approximately the specified search key. ftff is a fault tolerant file find utility which is similar to the 'find' command but fault tolerant. ftwhich is a fault tolerant version for the 'which' command. The error tolerant approximate string match is based on the Levenshtein Distance between two strings.
plhtml is a preprocessor for html documents. Its purpose is to simplify the work of writing large numbers of HTML documents. It acts like a compiler, i.e. you provide an input source text and plhtml produces the HTML documents. Unlike many other programs of this type, plhtml does actually report the line number in the html input file if it comes across a syntax error. This makes it very easy to find faults.
HTML::TagReader is a Perl module which allows you to read HTML/XML files by tag. Its package contains some application programs which are very useful for Webmasters. They all start with the prefix "tr_" to make it easy to remember their names. tr_blck is a utility to check for broken links in Web pages. tr_llnk is a utility to build tar archives. tr_xlnk can process HTML files and expand links on directories. tr_mvlnk modifies links in HTML files with Perl commands. tr_staticssi expands the SSI directives #include virtual and #exec cmd. tr_tagcontentgrep greps for a tag (e.g., "img src"). tr_imgaddsize adds "width" and "height" to "img src=...".
lfwmail is a lightweight webmail program. It will run with acceptable speed even on a Pentium 100Mhz Linux mailserver. It has just basic features and no calendar or folders, but it is fully MIME capable and can handle attachments. It is also very secure when you use https encryption. It converts HTML messages to ASCII for security reasons, but you can still see the HTML versions if you want. The code is clean and structured. The installation is straightforward and doesn't require a lot of non-standard modules.
gpppwrap is a graphical user interface to conveniently select a phone number and dial into your ISP. It's very convenient if you use different ISPs, and is based on the GTK GUI libraries. It is only a wrapper around the ppp-on/ppp-off scripts and gives you therefore still the power and flexibility of these scripts. It is written for people who like the power and flexibility of shell and Perl scripts, and also want an idiot-proof way to connect to the Internet.
ethwireck can detect if the physical layer of the Ethernet is up. Laptops which use dynamic IP address assignment via DHCP have the problem that the boot process is much longer when no wire is connected to the Ethernet card. This is because the startup scripts have to wait for the DHCP request to time out. ethwireck can be used in the init script for your network card to determine whether or not an interface should be brought up. In other words, a timeout is avoided.
