path can be used to manipulate a colon-separated list of paths contained in an environment variable such as PATH. New paths can be added either to the beginning or the end of the path list, paths can be removed from the path list, and several checks can be made on the paths contained in the path list. All duplicate paths in the list are removed.
Many of us are using a "light" windows manager, as WindowMaker, while using the KDE tools, because they're great. The trouble is, the links in the KDE menu can't be used in the WindowMaker menu (or AfterStep, Fvwm...). So you may find it not easy to have KDE tools in the WindowMaker menu. This Perl script solves this problem: it "translates" the KDE-style links into links in wmconfig-style, used by WindowMaker and many other window managers.
Freefile is a clone of the file(1) program that reads files and generates an educated guess about their contents. This version differs from implementations based on Ian Darwin's code in three ways: the source code is smaller, "file -z" can decode the contents of bzip2 files (and gzip files, which both implentations can handle), and it is GPL'ed. Freefile was originally written to resolve copyright issues about Ian Darwin's version, some of which still remain.
Lucifer is a burn-in program suppoering Linux and DOS. It tests RAM, hard disks, processors, and floating-point processors by running stress tests to ensure that the hardware is not likely to have trouble as it ages. Lucifer should be portable, although it is only tested with Linux and DOS.
Weeder is a utility which takes fingerprints (crc and length) of files. Once a fingerprint is taken it can display or delete duplicates in vast amounts of files. Usually this applies to the maintenance of collections of pictures or archives. It serves as well for integrity checking purposes. Weeder is designed to be unlimited in the number of files processed and for speed.
Enable_Logitech_Wheel is designed to send re-initialization strings to the mouse device which enable the scroll wheel functions of many popular OEM models of Logitech's FirstMouse+ and MouseMan+ (Models M-S48 and M-S48-OEM which are based off a Zilog controler chip and do not initalize with the standard Xserver or gpm packages). When run the mouse will issue commands sequences identical to the retail version of the FirstMouse+ (M-C48) and work properly with XFree86 Releases > 3.3.2.
