A set of classes to do different actions with the console (also called shell).
It can render a progress bar, tables and a status bar and contains a class for
parsing command line options.
nload is a console application which monitors network traffic and bandwidth
usage in real time. It visualizes the in- and outgoing traffic using two graphs
and provides additionally info like total amount of transfered data and min/max
MultiTail lets you view one or multiple files like the original tail program.
The difference is that it creates multiple windows on your console (with
ncurses). It can also monitor wildcards: if another file matching the wildcard
has a more recent modification date, it will automatically switch to that file.
That way you can, for example, monitor a complete directory of files. Merging
of 2 or even more logfiles is possible. It can also use colors while displaying
the logfiles (through regular expressions), for faster recognition of what is
important and what not. It can also filter lines (again with regular
expressions). It has interactive menus for editing given regular expressions
and deleting and adding windows. One can also have windows with the output of
shell scripts and other software. When viewing the output of external software,
MultiTail can mimic the functionality of tools like 'watch' and such.
YASR ("Yet Another Screen Reader") is an attempt at a lightweight,
portable screen reader. It works by opening a shell in a pty and
intercepting all user input/output, maintaining a window of what
should be on the screen by looking at the codes and text sent to the
screen. It thus uses no Linuxisms such as /dev/vcsa0 and does not
necessarily need to be setuid root (the only requirement being that
the user be able to access the tts device).
mp3blaster is an interactive text-based mp3player. One of
the unique features of this player is the ability to divide
a playlist into groups (albums). Therefore, the play order
can be adjusted with great flexibility.
vile is a text editor which is extremely compatible with vi in terms of
"finger feel". in addition, it has extended capabilities in many areas,
multi-file editing and viewing
key rebinding (in addition to :map, :map!, and :abbr)
mouse support (in an xterm, or when built as xvile)
many additional operator commands
"next error" cursor positioning after compilation
full function- and arrow-key support
filename, command, internal mode and variable completion
auxiliary utilities for man page and C program syntax highlighting
built-in macro language
portability to all UNIX platforms, VMS, DOS, Win32, OS/2
dialog4ports -- a dialog for FreeBSD ports
transcode is a text-console utility for video stream processing,
running on a platform that supports shared libraries and threads.
Decoding and encoding is done by loading modules that are responsible
for feeding transcode with raw video/audio streams (import modules)
and encoding the frames (export modules).
It supports elementary video and audio frame transformations,
including de-interlacing or fast resizing of video frames and loading
of external filters. A number of modules are included to enable
import of DVDs on-the-fly, MPEG elementary (ES) or program streams
(VOB), MPEG video, Digital Video (DV), YUV4MPEG streams, NuppelVideo
file format and raw or compressed (pass-through) video frames and
export modules for writing DivX;-), OpenDivX, DivX 4.xx or uncompressed
AVI files with MPEG, AC3 (pass-through) or PCM audio. Additional
export modules to write single frames (PPM) or YUV4MPEG streams are
available, as well as an interface import module to the avifile
library. Its modular concept is intended to provide flexibility
and easy user extensibility to include other video/audio codecs or
Term::Menus allows you to create powerful Terminal, Console and CMD
environment menus. Any perl script used in a Terminal, Console or CMD
environment can now include a menu facility that includes sub-menus,
forward and backward navigation, single or multiple selection
capabilities, dynamic item creation and customized banners. All this
power is simple to implement with a straight forward and very
intuitive configuration hash structure that mirrors the actual menu
architecture needed by the application. A separate configuration file
is optional. Term::Menus is cross platform compatible.
