The following is a list of scripts (shell, perl, awk, etc)
that I have found useful. Some I wrote, some I got
from other sources. You will probably need to change the
first line of the script (the one that says where to find
The ones I wrote aren't very polished; I wrote them to perform
specfic tasks I wanted computed. bibenter and gapm are the
exception to this; they're reasonably polished (gapm is
simple enough that there's not much to polish).
Scripts I wrote:
gapm (Graphical Advanced Power Management)
is a Tcl/Tk script for monitoring the power on
your laptop computer.
bibenter (version 3.0)
is a Tcl/Tk script for entering and editing BibTeX files.
- pssched is a Perl
script for creating a pretty schedule. It reads a
human readable format, and translates it to PostScript.
The PostScript schedule
appearing in my homepage is formated
- When printing ASCII files, I was tired of page breaks
being inserted in the middle of paragraphs, so I wrote
lbreak, a simple
Perl script to insert page breaks into an ASCII file
in between paragraphs.
Scripts I cowrote:
- pscal is a C shell
script for creating an PostScript calendar. The original
was written by Patrickwood (see the copyright notice
contained inside). There are newer versions of this
program, but it was converted to a Bourne shell script,
so I've stuck with this version.
- hpscal is a Perl
script for creating a 17 week calendar. All I did
was modify pscal.
- psproof is a Perl
script that takes a conforming PostScript file and
puts multiple pages on one page. There are millions
of these programs floating around, so I may as well
add the one that I co-wrote with Hugues Hoppe.
Scripts others wrote:
Up one level.
Written by Dag Asheim. This C shell script takes a BiBTeX
file and produces a .dvi file.
Written by Curt McDowell. Prints out 3 consecutive
months of the calendar.
