epto is a small library and framework for industrial strength shell script programming with sh. It features convenient error handling, tracing, logging, option handling, documentation template, process level transaction safety (sort of), and more. If one is used to shell programming, it takes less than five minutes of learning to start using it (see the crash course in the README file).
MT-write is a binary patch for multi-threaded writing. It comes in the form of a shared object that can be preloaded to programs like tar to make their write operations multi-threaded. Multi-threaded writing can improve performance on RAM based filesystems and highly scalable filesystems with multiple spindles.
ggiterm is a software terminal emulator like xterm. However instead of X, it uses the GGI system for its rendering, which allows it to be displayed on anything from a framebuffer to multi-screens across networked hosts (including ordinary X sessions). It features multiple font formats, anti-aliasing, vt100 compatibility, and full internationalization.
Hardened Debian improves Debian GNU/Linux with high security and hardening features, hardened kernels and packages, DHKP, and other security related enhancements. It makes systems more difficult to compromise using common attacks such as race conditions, chroot jail escapes, and buffer overflows.
QConsole is a character terminal server over Bluetooth for Symbian devices, and a Linux and Windows terminal client. It uses the built in BlueTooth support on Symbian devices, and the userspace BlueZ Linux BlueTooth libraries. On Windows, it uses the embedded BlueTooth OS support. The QConsole server sets up an RFCOMM channel on the Symbian device and listens for connections. On the Linux and Windows side, the corresponding QTTY terminal allows a BlueTooth-enabled Linux/Windows box to connect to the QConsole server and execute a veriety of shell commands.
MSYS (Minimal SYStem) provides POSIX/Bourne configure scripts the ability to execute and create a Makefile used by make on Windows systems. This includes a pseudo-terminal, bash, make, sed, awk, etc. Together with a MinGW installation this environment is comparable to a Cygwin installation, except that it is really open source.
NOTE is a small console program that allows you to manage notes similar to programs like "knotes" from the command line. It supports different database backends for storage, and includes a DBI-based MySQL module and another module that uses a binary file for storage and a DBM module.
