Utilities and Tools for X/CDE/Unix



An X HSV Color picker, the only one with no widget toolkit dependencies ;) Writes selected color values, either as rgb(r/g/b) or #RRGGBB, to the stdout, it's useful for picking colors right into a text editor (e.g. :r !xpickrgb -q in vi). [Screenshot].

Shell/Dtksh Scripts


A dtksh based application launcher that captures the stdout/err output of the executed program, if the later exits with a non-zero value, and displays it in a message dialog. This is useful for launching apps, which only report errors to stdout/err (e.g. Xpdf), without spawning a terminal window.
