abcde is a frontend to cdparanoia, wget, cd-discid, id3, and your favorite Ogg Vorbis (the default), MP3, FLAC, Ogg Speex, or MPP (Musepack) encoder. It grabs an entire CD and converts each track to the desired format, then comments or ID3-tags each file, all with one command. It supports multiple output in a single CD read, the creation of a single track from a CD, resume operation, CD concatenation, volume normalization, gapless encoding (with LAME), parallelization, SMP, proxies, customizable filename organization and munging, playlist generation, distributed encoding via distmp3, and more.
Aphid (the Apache/Perl HTTP Installation Daemon) provides a quick facility for compiling and installing the Apache Web server with support for SSL via mod_ssl, and with the embedded Perl interpreter provided by mod_perl. It downloads, compiles, and installs the software into the directory of your choice. Aphid places emphasis on providing an intuitive, browser-based interface and keeping a tiny distribution footprint. To date Aphid has been tested on Rehat Linux 6 and 6.2, FreeBSD 4.0, and Solaris 2.6 and 7.
bcnu is a Web-based system management tool which delivers information on the status of networked systems in a simple and easy-to-use manner. It uses a web browser to display information about hosts in a tabular form. Historical information can be held indefinitely, and there is a powerful query tool available to interrogate it. Client systems can run an agent which logs information back to a central system. An agent scheduler is integrated to allow agents to be run at different intervals. Standard agents include ftp, http, disk space, logfiles, processes, and more.
Blackarts is a tool for creating web based documentation repositories from interesting information that shows up in email. It was designed to solve the problem whereby a company or association gathers important documentation in email conversations that never gets recorded in a way that is easily accessible later. Blackarts creates mail gateways to multiple document repositories that have tables of contents, sections and section crosslinking.
The CDDB/CDDB_get Perl module gets the CDDB info for an audio CD. The included script was intended as a demo for CDDB_get, but over time it has gained powerful features like the ability to write to a database, offline mode, HTTP mode (including proxy), saving in standard XMCD format, and writing 'lame' commands.
CfgTie is a package of Perl modules and tools. These make it easier to configure and maintain Unix computers. The idea is that just about everything in your machines environment can be operable through a single consistent interface. This is a set of tools that make many of the various configuration subsystem in your machine appear to be Perl variables of some sort.
CGI::Application is a Perl framework intended to make it easier to create sophisticated, reusable Web-based applications. This module implements a methodology which can make Web software easier to design, easier to document, easier to write, and easier to evolve. CGI::Application builds on standard, non-proprietary technologies and techniques, such as the Common Gateway Interface and Lincoln D. Stein's excellent CGI.pm module. CGI::Application judiciously avoids employing technologies and techniques which would bind a developer to any one set of tools, operating system, or Web server.
ColdSync is a portable synchronization tool for Palm devices (PalmPilot, Handspring Visor, etc.) that runs under *BSD, Solaris, Digital Unix/Tru64, Linux, AIX, and Windows NT. It supports PalmOS 2.0 (original PalmPilot) and later. It is only known to support Visor syncing under FreeBSD and Linux, however. It supports IR syncing under Linux. ColdSync can back up, restore, install, and synchronize database, and can be extended and customized through the use of conduits. ColdSync is rather paranoid and takes pains not to delete anything it isn't 100% sure about.
ctrlxmms is a small Perl script designed to increase the useability of XMMS. With it, you can use most of the common GUI functions of XMMS from the CLI. You also have a few handy commands which are not available from the GUI. Together with lirc and a remote (eg. Anir Multimedia Magic), this is a wonderful tool.
