Cowsay is the easy way to add speaking and thinking cows (and a few other creatures) to anything. Any message you like, even in large figlet letters, can be rattled off by these ASCII critters. Cowsay comes with over 40 creatures that can be bent to your sick and twisted will. New "cows" can be easily bred by those versed in the appropriate dark arts. Cowsay is more useful than most of the items found in SkyMall catalogues, and a lot less expensive.
cut2 writes to standard output selected parts of each line of each input file, or standard input if no files are given. It was mean to supplement cut instead of replacing it. cut2 was written to overcome the problem of 'wc -l textfile | cut -f1', which results in the output of a blank line instead of the expected number of lines. Using cut2 instead will give you the expected result.
Cyrprint converts postscript files generated by netscape (original pages must be in koi8 encoding). It can be used as a pass-through filter. It adds cyrillic fonts to the beginning of the file and substitutes font names in the original PS document. The substitution and addition of fonts can be controlled with styles.
Data::Locations is a virtual file manager which allows you to write and read data (text and binary) to and from virtual files (think of bubbles). Moreover, this manager allows you to (recursively) define "magic" insertion points in these virtual files (bubbles inside other bubbles) which can be filled in (inflated) later (through a "straw", i.e., the object's reference), at any convenient time and in any order you like. Since this software acts purely in memory, there is no slowing down through costly file input/output (i.e., no temporary files).
Diogenes is a tool for searching and browsing the Latin and ancient Greek texts published on CD-ROM by the Packard Humanities Institute and the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae. It comes as an easy-to-install stand-alone application for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows, based on the Firefox browser (i.e. Xulrunner). Alternatively, it can be installed by a network administrator as a server on a local network, and users then access it via an ordinary Web browser. There is also a command-line tool which can optionally format output as LaTeX instead of HTML.
