Congrats! You've found my tools page. These are a set of tools
that either I or one of my friends wrote and maintain. No fancy HTML
here, but hopefully the tools themseles are useful.
- I have to mention conserver. It's the software I'm
maintaining that eases computer console management.
- I also need to mention my version of putty. I had to "hack"
it a bit to get a behavior that i like.
- bsremind (version 1.18) is a
simple reminder program that will help you remember when things are
happening. I run it from cron nightly to remind me of things to do
that day and by hand to check on random days.
- imgconvert (version 1.35)
is a tool to generate a series of web pages to present a group of
images. You can add captions, header, etc and not have to worry about
- symlink-tools (version
1.9) is a simple script that populates /usr/local based
on the tools installed in /tools. The cool thing is that it'll remove
broken links as well.
- rotate (version 1.8) is a simple
script for rotating files (usually logfiles). You can give it a target
directory for old files, a compression option, file modes, etc. Very
cool and straighforward.
- parallel (version 1.0) is a
program for running multiple versions of a command simultaneously and
in batches. It reads data from a file or stdin and uses that data to
permute a command into those multiple versions. It's kinda like the
-P option in GNU xargs, but a bit different.
- build (version 1.2) is a simple
script for organizing the building of tools. it's got a couple
of my site-specific things in it, but it's documented and easy to
change. it's pretty basic, but also pretty cool!
