Teriodic is a training tool for the periodic table of the elements. Starting from 1 (hydrogen), it quizzes the abreviations of each element in numerical order. If you make a mistake, it shows you the next five elements and lets you start again from hydrogen. Knowing the periodic table makes it possible to estimate what chemicals look like and how they react.
Wheretero determines the country where the local computer is. This allows automatic keyboard layout configuration for live CDs. Network information is collected from DNS, DHCP, traceroute, GeoIpLookup, and Web IP address services. Information is scored and scaled. Wheretero prints its final decission as a two letter ISO country code, such as fi, de, fr, or us. Secondary choices are printed with probability estimations.
Firetero is a firewall for a single computer. The default setup works for a typical workstation. For a server, a sample configuration is available for most common daemons. Firetero uses the iptables syntax for rule definitions, has a standard /etc/init.d start script, and offers a rules.d directory for integration with other packages.
Re: Similar project
Thanks for the link. However, ccsh is for C, a different language. Tiny C Compiler tcc is another script-supporting compiler for C. However, I have not yet seen this done for C++.
Tero's C++ Scripting is for C++, a higher level language that is easier to learn than C.
