These pro­grams should in the­o­ry run on any com­mon Unix/​POSIX plat­form with­out prob­lems.

ImgView [2014‐​04‐​14]
A sim­ple im­age view­er. It is free from menus and oth­er GUI gad­gets, and con­trolled pri­mar­i­ly by the key­board. It sup­ports the fol­low­ing im­age file for­mats: GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, PNM (PBM/​PGM/​PPM), TIFF and XBM. It is able to scale im­ages with non‐​square pix­els so that they dis­play cor­rect­ly on a dis­play with square pix­els. It sup­ports RGB, Gray and CMYK ICC pro­files in TIFF and JPEG, RGB and Gray ICC pro­files in PNG, and RGB ICC pro­files in GIF. Dis­play of Exif, XMP and oth­er meta­da­ta is re­al­ized through the use of ExifTool. It re­quires, among oth­er li­braries, libp­ng, libtiff, li­bungif, lib­stru­til [2013‐​04‐​08] and libxsim­ple [2013‐​04‐​08]. Please get libp­ng, libtiff and li­bungif from the above lo­ca­tions, since I have mod­i­fied them slight­ly for ImgView. The lib­stru­til and libxsim­ple li­braries are my own cre­ations, and can on­ly be down­loaded from here.
ic­c­text [2014‐​04‐​20]
A sim­ple com­mand line util­i­ty that lets you ed­it text tags in an ICC pro­file. It re­quires Lit­tle CMS, at least ver­sion 2.6, and lib­stru­til.
icc2to4 [2014‐​04‐​15]
A sim­ple com­mand line util­i­ty that lets you con­vert an ICC pro­file from v2 to v4. Please note that it is still some­what ex­per­i­men­tal. It re­quires Lit­tle CMS, at least ver­sion 2.0, and lib­stru­til.
pcd­toppm [2014‐​04‐​16]
A mod­i­fi­ca­tion of the pcd­to­jpeg Pho­to CD con­ver­sion util­i­ty that out­puts PPM rather than JPEG.
mf2t/​t2mf for Unix [2011‐​06‐​17]
A port of the mf2t/​t2mf MI­DI file ma­nip­u­la­tion util­i­ties by Piet van Oost­rum. One no­table en­hance­ment over the orig­i­nal soft­ware is the sup­port of 8‐​bit tex­tu­al da­ta.
mfext [2013‐​06‐​20]
A com­mand line util­i­ty that lets you ex­tract text or Sys­tem Ex­clu­sive da­ta from a stan­dard MI­DI file.
MP3Shell v1.2.20
A sim­ple Tcl/​Tk GUI for the mpg123 MP3 play­er by Michael Hipp.
Tk­Nap v0.5.21
A bare‐​bones nap­ster client writ­ten in Tcl/​Tk. It sup­ports chat, fire­walled down­load and up­load, hotlist and a lim­it­ed set of priv­i­leged user (e.g. mod­er­a­tor/​ad­min) com­mands.
Xm­Nap v0.2.13
A Mo­tif nap­ster client. It bears some re­sem­blance with Tk­Nap, al­though it dif­fers in sev­er­al ar­eas, such as us­ing a ded­i­cat­ed con­fig­u­ra­tion win­dow. It is al­so gen­er­al­ly much faster, since it is writ­ten in C. Like Tk­Nap, it sup­ports chat, fire­walled down­load and up­load, hotlist and a lim­it­ed set of priv­i­leged user com­mands.
You will need Mo­tif 2.0 or lat­er to build this pro­gram. If you are us­ing an open‐​source sys­tem such as Lin­ux or FreeB­SD, you can down­load Mo­tif from the net. Metrolink has a nice re­lease out with many bugs fixed. Please vis­it this link for de­tails.
v2strip v0.2.10
Re­moves ID3v2 tags from MP3 files.
ximp3 v0.1.21
A sim­ple con­sole MP3 play­er. It is based on the GPL’ed Xing de­coder al­so used in FreeAmp.
ximp3shell v0.1.12
A sim­ple Tcl/​Tk GUI for the play­er above.
PGo­pher v0.1.7
A sim­ple con­sole based Go­pher client in Perl.
