Bibcursed is a simple curses-based editor for BibTeX bibliography files, especially useful for those who have to maintain a large number of references for a major piece of documentation, like a PhD thesis. It performs everyday functions such as adding, removing and viewing reference entries. Intelligent prompting for fields is used when adding entries so that authors do not have to rely on memory for knowing which fields can and cannot be used for different entry types.
Multidialnet is a curses-based tool that runs on a machine that hosts a shared dial-up Internet connection. This program will not only allow users to make the connection, but also log the usage and work out how much the phone call cost. It should work equally well with any sort of non-permanent connection - not just analogue modems.
