JERED is a very easy-to-use C/C++ text editor for *NIX which provides C/C++ syntax color highlighting. Help is always on the screen, many-user configurable settings are available, and the user interface can be viewed in English, French, Finnish, Spanish or Russian (using the KOI-8 font).
Boxes is a text filter that can draw any kind of box around its input text. Box design choices range from simple boxes to complex ASCII art. A box can also be removed and repaired, even if it has been badly damaged by editing of the text inside. Since the generated boxes may be open on any side, the program can also be used to create regional comments in any programming language. New box designs of all sorts can easily be added and shared by appending to a free format configuration file. In addition to being a command line tool, Boxes integrates well with any text editor that supports filters.

Jedstate is some sort of an extended mind for John E. Davis' splendid text editor jed. Using jedstate together with jed's startup_hook() and exit_hook() as glue, jed remembers the cursor position of all visited files and will automagically jump to that position again when the files are revisited. The database, which is gdbm based, is purgeable on a "time since last view" criterion. Jedstate comes with two sample hooks for easy integration with jed.
ics.el is a comint based Emacs major mode for handling the text portion of communications with internet chess servers such as FICS and ICC. It is written in Emacs-Lisp and works best in conjunction with a graphical interface such as Xboard. It handles colour highlighting and "buttonisation" (making certain portions of text active so that, for example, you can challenge opponents with a single mouse click) as well as command recall and editing and automation of commands based on regexps seen in the ICS output, all highly customisable using Emacs lisp.
