- ModifyFiles is a shell script to modify files using a user defined filter. It will pipe each of the files through the specified filter (which takes input from stdin and outputs to stdout) and write it back to the file.
- RenameFiles is a shell script to rename a set of files using a user defined renaming function. The renaming function has to map original file name to the new name, e.g. using a regexp-replacement with 'sed' or 'awk'.
- Wwwoffle-list is a perl script which lists URL's along with their associated filenames which are residing in a wwwoffle cache. To make the search more rapid, it will descend only to those directories that match the specified URL regexp.
- Calc is a mini command-line based calculator with history (provided by bash), complex expression evaluation (provided by perl) and optional binary, octal, decimal and hexadecimal conversion (provided by perl).
- WxExtLib - wxWidgets Extensions Library
- This C++ library, intended to be used in conjunction with the wxWidgets cross-platform UI library (formerly wxWindows) includes: a class which allows the creation of message boxes with arbitrary named buttons to display a HTML or text message, (simple) support for dialog zooming, and a class and functions providing a type-safe printf() replacement.
Validator classes for int, long, double, date and strings, which give the user immediate feedback about valid values into a status window, and classes which simplify mutual update of a wxTextCtrl and a wxSlider control are available, as well as classes which provide a declarative, type-safe interface for reading and writing entries from/to a wxConfig object.
TeX and LaTeX
- Texview is a shell script that manages compilation of a LaTeX source file, viewing the output with a default or specified viewer, and cleaning up generated files, all by issuing just a single command. Compilation is done by default in the temporary directory. Handled output formats are PostScript, PDF and HTML. Images may be converted to EPS files by calling specific conversion programs.

- An article describing which tools can be used to convert e.g. JPEG and PNG images to Encapsulated PostScript without decompressing the images, thus avoiding huge PostScript files. It also contains some considerations which image formats can or should be used when generating PDF (Portable Document Format) or HTML from a LaTeX source.
