HTMTEX reads hand-coded ASCII HTML documents with embedded TEX-like islands (backslash-escaped symbols, inline math, and displayed math). It writes Unicode HTML documents with UTF-8 encoded symbols, and span- and table-formatted math. The converter itself is a customizable sed script. Visualization is regulated by a customizable stylesheet file.
mysqlviz renders a graphical representation of a MySQL database from a mysqldump file. Features include speed, the ability to infer foreign key relationships if you do not have them defined, and handling of partial dumps (i.e. foreign keys to tables that are not defined within the dump).
Grep.pm is a much-modified fork of tcgrep. It understands context, matching from the start or end of a file (with a line count or byte count), and features size limits and highlighting. It extends matching to boolean expressions, structuring regular expressions, or even arbitrary pieces of Perl code. It can perform basic stemming and synonym-expansion in regular expressions (using expansyn). It also handles \0-lines, paragraphs, file slurping, directory recursion, and compressed files. It can act either as a Perl module or a command-line program. Grep.xchange is a support program taking grep or Grep.pm input and applying an expression at each grep match to the files specified in the grep output. This expression can be arbitrary Perl modifying e.g. just the line of the match with s///g, or operate against the current pos() position in the whole file. Grep.xchange --modified goes one step further and replaces the matched lines with the (edited) text from the grep output. Changes are logged in diff -u format and can be revoked/redone with patch.
UnifiedSessionsManager is a unified and simplified interface for the use and management of local and remote sessions on physical and virtual machines. It provides management of distributed and stacked virtual machines, management of desktops and workspaces on multiple monitors, seamless access to all types of sessions, and support of encrypted connections using SSH.
Werc is a minimalistic RESTful Web application framework and content management system. It follows the Unix "tool philosophy" and it is designed to be fast, simple, convenient, and easily extensible. It handles both small and big sites and has a flexible system for user and group permissions. All data is stored in plain text files that can be easily manipulated with standard tools, without using any databases or other external dependencies. Existing applications include a blogging engine with RSS/Atom feeds, a wiki system that can easily integrate pre-existing documents (can be enabled for any directory tree), and others.
