Raven's System Stats allows users to collect detailed information about an operating system, including kernel architecture, distro, operating system, kernel version, glibc version, name of login shell, number of CPUs, CPU description, hyperthreading support, CPU MHz, CPU cache, bogomips, used and total RAM, used and total swap, filesystem size and type, uptime, unique users logged in, total login shells, currently running processes, total processes since bootup, load average, X resolution, and the number of X servers running.
RPSL (Rapid Prototyping Shared Library) is a set of bash scripts and utility files that coordinate the GNU autotools and pkg-config for C/C++ build automation. The scripts and procedures define a system for building and linking that supports an individual or small group. A single command (rpslSyncBuild) scans for source, writes a Makefile.am and Configure.ac, and produces a conventional autotools tree ready for the usual "configure, make, make install" build steps.
Apropos2 is a replacement for the GNU apropos command. It winnows down its responses when given more than one search word, unlike apropos which repeatedly prints everything that matches each word. Apropos2 is equivalent to "apropos word1 | grep -i word2 | ... | grep -i wordn", but with better error messages.
StoCS is a script to control free space on disk and to maintain free space at a configurable level. It works with three thresholds: WARN(do a configurable action), FDEL (deletion limit), and LOWL (dimension to reach after deletion). The threshold unit can be: total number of files and/or subdirectories; total dimension of controlled folders; percentage of free space on disk; or maximum age of files and/or subdirectories.
vidprofile is a collection of a few components that finds the best way to create MPEG video with mjpegtools. It fully characterizes mpeg2enc from mjpegtools and helps answer the question: given a file size limit, what are the best mpeg2enc options (and values) to use that give the highest possible quality MPEG video? mpeg2enc has an abundance of command line options, and each one tweaks the encoded output (some options tweak to larger degrees than others). vidprofile offers a set of tools to let the user fully test each of the options in mpeg2enc and quantify the output video's size and quality.
