The KornShell language is an interactive command language that provides access to the Unix system and to many other systems, on the many different computer systems on which it is implemented. The KornShell language is also a complete, powerful, high-level programming language for writing applications, often more easily and quickly than with other high-level languages. This makes it especially suitable for prototyping. There are two other widely used shells, the Bourne shell developed by Steven Bourne at AT&T Bell Laboratories, and the C shell developed by Bill Joy at the University of California. ksh has the best features of both, plus many new features of its own. Thus ksh can do much to enhance your productivity and the quality of your work, both in interacting with the system, and in programming. ksh programs are easier to write, and are more concise and readable than programs written in a lower level language such as C.
JCR Shell is a shell interface to manage JCR repositories like Apache Jackrabbit, Hippo CMS 7, and other JCR 1.0 (JSR 170) capable repositories. It uses RMI to communicate with the server. It features tab completion on names, types, and properties, the ability to import and export XML, a JCR diff tool, queries, reference lookups, and namespace management.
install_track.sh is a small shell (zsh) script that helps a user to list files installed by an application compiled from source. This script is meant to be used instead of "make install". Install_track will start to "watch" your filesystem before running "make install" and will save the list of installed files upon completion.
Tiny Bash Server (TBS) is a small HTTP server. It allows CGI style scripting with .htsh files, which may contain Bash code embedded within normal HTML. TBS uses netcat to bind itself to open port(s). Multiple instances of the server may be run (on different ports and with different docroots) using separate configuration files. TBS comes with all the basic features you expect of a Web server: serving HTML/CSS, handling POST/GET forms, etc. It also passes selected environment variables for use with CGI scripting in .htsh files. However, it is highly not recommended to run TBS on any sort of production system. This is because, as a server, TBS is relatively slow, potentially insecure, and has fewer features than full-fledged servers like Apache HTTPD. A potential use for TBS is to develop browser-based frontends to bash scripts for local usage.
Read Arguments is a PHP class that reads and validates shell command line arguments. It supports mandatory arguments, optional arguments, switch arguments, multiple alternatives to an option switches, and a special argument that shows a nicely formatted help usage message. The class extracts argument values into an array if the argument rules are validated.
sysfunc is a shell library intended for Unix sysadmins. It provides a set of portable shell functions including features such as file copy, symbolic link management, file/dir deletion, user/group management, data block replacement in a file, line replacement, commenting/uncommenting lines, service management, and volume group/logical volume/file system creation.
