Small Tools

What is this stuff?

My daily driver runs on a fairly minimal Linux distribution (Parabola, a totally free spin-off of Arch), so I've written a couple of simple tools to help me with day to day things. I also have builds of a couple of suckless.org's programs.

This isn't a comprehensive collection, just the things that I would estimate to be general enough to be useful to a fair number of people other than myself, and that I have bothered to sit down and write some kind of documentation for.

As far as I know, no one uses these things but me, and most of them are pretty trivial, but I learned most of what I know about Unix shellscripting and whatnot from digging through stuff other people have written and posted online, so if there's any chance at all that someone could stumble across these and find them helpful, I figure they may as well be here.

On Licensing

Anyone who's toyed around with free software for a while knows that some kind of license is a universal fact of life. Intuitively, it seems kind of bonkers that small, trivial programs should have to have any kind of legal jargon attached to them, but to be on the safe side, it's considered good practice to always put a license on your stuff, so that's what I've done. Currently, everything here is under the MIT/X11 License, which basically amounts to "just do whatever you want with it."
