Open Source Software
On this page area I will gather additional information for software I wrote.
Sorry, no WiKi yet.
Open Source Distribution Site
I have a distribution site for Open Source Software
Please also have a look into the old tools section
and on the Scylla&Charybdis homepage
which is helplessly out of sync.
For more information, please look in the teaser pages for the software.
No CVS access yet, no precompiled binaries, and often the source only compiles cleanly on some Linux distributions unchanged. So you must know what you are doing.
Note that I consider Scylla&Charybdis too old to be most useful.
- md5backup, all my linux boxes, this site, too, are backupped with md5backup.
With the help of Scylla&Charybdis md5backup is an automated network backup, which automatically recovers from most type of common errors you will ever see.
These tools, hopefully, will sometimes merge into sockexec.
- accept (a really badly choosen name), allows you to interconnect stdin/out with TCP and unix domain sockets in both, connect and accept mode.
- socklinger solves the lingering problem (which you might observe with accept) when you want to accept bi-directional sockets. Currently socklinger only allows to accept connections.
- ptybuffer connects a command which requires a pty to a unix domain socket with output history.
- Like "screen", multiple connects to the socket can control the program in parallel, and the program continues to run in the backround if nobody is connected.
- Unlike "screen", ptybuffer has no congestion problem if one of the connected sessions starves (under screen this makes all sessions starve). Starvation often can be seen if you forget to issue "screen -d" after your got disconnected because the IP of your DSL-link got renewed.
- Unlike "screen" it does not contain any terminal emulation.
- Currently it does not allow to send terminal commands (like "break") either (telnet and screen can do this).
- diskimg makes images from disk. It skips over error areas and marks those bad blocks in the image taken.
You can create an ISO images from data CDs under Windows if you compile it under CygWin.
- xml2sql-v allows to dump the contents of any correct XML file into SQL databases, such that you can postprocess them with SQL afterwards. It only needs a static two table schema for this. It also contains some tools to fix commonly seen erros in files which pretend to be XML but are written by broken software.
- NWNadm is a frontend thought for administering Neverwinter Nights over the web
