ftpUP was designed as a more reliable and quicker acting alternative to dyndns for making Web servers, which are connected via dial-up links, available under a fixed address. It gets your IP on a definable interface and creates an html document containing the current URL of your local server, and uploads it to an existing website. You can also include a logo or other information in the file which is uploaded. Another advantage over dyndns is that the link can point to any URL, ie. your websites can be delivered from anywhere else if your local server goes offline.
np is a compact NMEA parser. It provides quick and flexible access to GPS data from various sources. Data can be read from devices, text files, STDIN, or GPSD (raw mode). The list of supported NMEA sentences includes $GPRMC, $GPGGA, $GPGSA, $GPGSV, as well as Garmin's proprietary $PGRME and $PGRMM. By employing user-definable stylesheets, the parser output can be adapted to numerous application scenarios. The parser can be queried directly from the console or through the included Web front end.
