Larger software projects I work on:
FreeBSD is an OpenSource implementation of a complete UNIX-compatible operating system. It contains everything you need for a running system, including kernel, C libraries, commandline tools, installation program and a superb system to integrate and update third-party applications.
This page gives an overview on some of the outstanding features.
- CMU Common Lisp
- The CMU implementation of the Common Lisp programming language.
Software of my own:
- cstream is a dd(1) replacement and general streaming commandline tool. cstream has its own homepage.
- cracauer-userfaultfd.c is an example C program that demonstrates
how to use Linux' new userfaultfd(2) system call and API to get
notified and intercept VM system page fault. At the time of this
writing this example program contains everything you need to both [a]
get notified of pages being written to (for generational GC) and [b]
get notification when an mmap'ed area has not yet a page fill (e.g. a
zero page) so that you can supply one of your own. The example
program retries pages that are attempted read from a disk file where a
compressed version lives.
More documentation for userfaultfd. This is a diff against the -mm kernel to have more documentation about userfaultfd. This particularly adds some clarifications about common (to me) pitfalls and how to use the write protection support.
- shellsupport(1) is a commandline utility that implements those
functionality I most often miss when writing shellscripts.
shellsupport has its own homepage.
- ledbiff is a simple program that switches LEDs on the keyboard
when mail arrives. For now, it is X11 only, but I plan to extend it
to pcvt, syscons and the Linux console.
Usage: -f <file> Monitor file <file>. If not given, tries to determine main mailbox for the current user. -l <n> Use LED number <n>. Note that in XFree86 the leftmost LED is number 2, not 1. -s <n> Sleep time between checking the file.
- cratimeout is a wrapper about commandlines. As the namesuggests,
after a specified timeout the commandline will terminate.
cratime has been coded carefully to change the semantics of the called program as few as possible. In particular, it preserves signal behavior. SIGINT, SIGQUIT etc. sent to the program will make the whole commandline have the signal semantics as if the program was called directly.
- ICSPLL is a set of tools to mess with chipsets.
For now I have tools to real the digital core temperature sensors on modern Intel CPUs (Core2 architcture - Conroe, Woodcrest, Clovertown etc.) and to display and change memory timings on 975x, 965 and 5000x chipsets (5000x view only).
