Sportwire contains the essential components to translate an ANPA sports newswire feed into XML format and then to read the XML into relational tables. The story parser is extensible and can be easily adapted. Parser classes included in this release can parse scoreboards, game updates, recaps and previews; it is just the components needed to construct sports news websites using ANPA news stories and a relational database. Also, since the ANPA tagging scheme is not fully normalized, the parser must use some heuristics to match certain incoming news items with the specific games.
The xfilesel program is used to copy the X selection into a file and to copy a file contents to the X selection. It acts as a bridge between applications that support selections and console applications (for example with default Midnight Commander clipboard file ~/.cedit/cooledit.clip).
muser lists processes which have a given directory (or cwd if not specified) as a parent of their current working directory (thus making it impossible to unmount that directory if it is a mount point). This script has overlapping functionality with the fuser program from the psmisc package, but has the advantage that it works on SMB mounts. Additionally, it provides a color, formatted listing of process IDs, executable names, current working directories, and the command lines used to run the programs. It works with varying-sized /proc/*/cwd fields.
JStart gives the ability to start Java class files (or applets) by double clicking on them from the desktop like any executable program. You only have to assign *.class files to this program. It loads a class file, investigates it according to the Java Sun class file specification, extracts the full class name (including packages), and invokes the main method of that class.
