chiark system administration scripts


This package contains a number of small administration scripts used by and other systems belonging to the Sinister Greenend Organisation. Featuring:

fishdescriptor: a tool for extracting a file descriptor from another (non-cooperating) process and giving it to you (or for examining it). Requires gdb and python3.

chiark-named-conf: a tool for managing nameserver configurations and checking for suspected DNS problems. Its main functions are to check that delegations are appropriate and working, that secondary zones are slaved from the right places, and to generate a configuration for BIND, from its own input file.

sync-accounts: a simple but flexible account info synchroniser. sync-accounts is a tool for copying un*x account data from remote systems and installing it locally. It is flexible and reasonably straightforward, but lacks integration with other distributed databases such as NIS.

cvs-repomove and cvs-adjustroot: tools for moving CVS repositories and adjusting working trees.

palm-datebook-reminders: a program which emails mails you reminders about the appointments in your Palm's Datebook.

cvsweb-list: cgi program to list ucgi (userv-utils) cvsweb repos

expire-iso8601: keep or expire backup trees named after their dates

gnucap2genspic, ngspice2genspic, genspic2gnuplot: convert gnucap files and ngspice output files to genspic and genspic files to gnuplot input so they can be plotted.

hexterm: connects to serial port and allows the user interact in ASCII and hex. Ie, a hex "terminal" program which lets you speak a serial port protocol directly. (Needs tcl8.4 to be installed.)

git-branchmove, random-word, remountresizereiserfs, summarise-mailbox-preserving-privacy
