Scylla Charybdis lets you get a data odyssey done with the help of two small monsters. It's easy to use, utilizes SSL (encryption), LIBZ (compression), and simple password protection. A builtin timeout detects link breaks (for dialups) such that an uploads can be automatically continued from where it broke (within a file). MD5 sums detect if files are successfully transferred. In case of data changes the destination is renamed and not overwritten (backup history). Data throttling can prevent the transfer from using up full link speed, such that a background upload does not disturb your SSH sessions (like SCP does).
xml2sql-v is based on expat and is a quick and dirty solution to transform the content of any well-formed XML file into SQL INSERT statements such that you can postprocess the content of the XML data with SQL. The XML file is neither tested for correctness nor is it checked to contain anything reasonable. The insert statements will have the UTF-8 characterset but there are 3 more utilities (entityfix, latin1-utf8, and utf8-latin1), to fix broken HTML entities within the XML files, convert "forgotten" Latin1-Characters into proper XML entities, and convert the output back to Latin1 for easy insertion into the database.
ptybuffer was designed to get rid of screen/expect constructs to improve stability. It daemonizes programs which need a TTY/PTY to operate. Unix domain sockets then can connect, send lines to the program and receive the output (with history) of the program in real time. It also includes NWNadm, a PHP-based Neverwinter Nights server administration frontend, which includes a demonstration of an easy Web-based command-line shell access to the computer.
printargs does for command line arguments what printenv does for the environment. The output is bash friendly such that you can assemble the arguments to stdout in a way that bash can parse them on shell level without additional help. This works even for meta-characters or line feeds in arguments. The code also is optimized to compile into a small static executable.
Diskus is a high-level hard drive diagnostic and limited repair tool. It checks the disk geometry by writing numbered IDs into the sectors of the hard drive. Later one can verify that these sector-IDs on the disk are still correct, thereby detecting data which was not correctly written. There is an option to "freshen" the data on your harddrive, which will read and rewrite the sectors. With modern drives this will re-map defective sectors.
md5chk is a tool for creating MD5 sums. It was designed so that its output would be easy to use with command line shells. It guarantees that the MD5 sum is always "clean" of characters that would be misinterpreted by the shell and that special characters in the file names are always properly escaped.
OMG Pumpkin ate Freshmeat away. Call Buffy! Quick!
Documented in Spanish language only
This project is documented in Spanish, a language I cannot understand. Translation services are not of much help in such technical areas, so even that this program looks and sounds pretty interesting, I cannot even understand a bit of it.
Also I was unable to find any trace of an English overview. It does not come often that something looks so interesting, so this missing doc must be taken as a sad thing.
Please add english documentation and then update your FM entry to reflect the change such that FM notifies me. Please note that English is not my mother tongue.
