5x9 and 5x10 are two X11 fonts intended for use with xterm or other programs requiring readable small fonts. At only 5 pixels wide, they are particularly well suited to small laptop screens, allowing two 80 column windows side by side on an 800x600 screen (albeit with no room for window frames), or three windows across with room to spare on a 1280x1024 screen. The fonts implement VT100 line-drawing characters. Bolding is not directly supported; xterm does adequate bolding by duplicating pixels.
FIGlet is a program for making large letters out of ordinary text. It prints its input using large characters made up of ordinary screen characters. FIGlet output is generally reminiscent of the sort of "signatures" many people like to put at the end of email and UseNet messages. It is also reminiscent of the output of some banner programs, although it is oriented normally, not sideways.
Font Industry (字体工业) makes big charset font creation easier. The program converts a scanned in grid sheet, containing a lot of glyphs, into a bitmap font. The glyphs will be automatically indexed by Unicode or with a user-selected charset order. The bitmap font can then be converted to an outline font like TTF or OpenType font.
IDAutomation Codabar Font Advantage is a set of fonts for printing Codabar barcodes. It includes the fonts in the TrueType, OpenType, PCL, and PostScript formats.

It includes the fonts at various width intensities to support multiple printer types. This CMC-7 MICR font contains ten specially designed numeric characters, 0 through 9, and five special symbols for magnetic recognition and optical character recognition systems.

TextSearch is a program to search through a set of text files in a directory structure. Each document is searched using a regular expression and an overview of the results is shown as a tree structure. By clicking on a file, it can be viewed, with matches being highlighted. As opposed to other programs out there, its focus is not so much on statistics, i.e. how often a word would occur in an entire corpus of files, but rather on occurrences in single files.
