Instant Boot Server allows you to set up a Debian GNU/Linux chroot environment and install a TFTP boot server onto it. Three "boot methods" are provided, one for providing the clients with the Debian Installer, one for providing an NFS root, and one for testing/playing with custom-built kernels and initrd images. The boot server is started and stopped on demand. The main program (shell script) is extensible, and may be used to serve as a platform for adding other server types.
apub is a tool to simplify uploading documents of a site to remote servers. Simply create an XML configuration file containing one or more site definitions, with the local and remote document root. After that, you can upload any file in any of your document roots with one simple command.
localcast is designed for Mac users who want to be able to resume podcast downloads after an error or unexpected sleep, something that iTunes cannot do by itself. Systems without iTunes can use localcast as an alternative to bashpodder. localcast depends on Mac OS X personal Web sharing and on wget. With localcast, interrupted downloads can be resumed, because wget fetches the podcasts. Podcasts appear fully integrated in iTunes just as if localcast was not in use.
depfinder finds the dependencies of Slackware packages. The dependency list can be output to stdout, to a .dep text file without version information, or to a slack-required file with version information. depfinder is very fast; its speed is mainly due to the C++ code that is used in depfinder to find in which package each individual library is included. It also has support for running multiple jobs, which makes it a lot faster when used with multiple CPUs/cores. depfinder supports detecting dependencies of binary files compiled with languages such as C or C++ and it can also detect Python dependencies.
wv2ogg is a tool that uses wvunpack, oggenc, and vorbiscomment to encode wavpack files to Ogg Vorbis files. The quality setting that will be used for encoding the Vorbis files can be set when running wv2ogg. It will also transfer all tags and replaygain information from the wavpack files to the Ogg Vorbis files by default. wv2ogg was written because no other software that would do this existed for Linux.
