I have done a number of programs for Peak, myself, and for hire.
Generally when I do small jobs for hire, I use code and ideas from
previous projects and retain rights to do what I want with the code
so that I can use it elsewhere.
These programs were all written for specific purposes. If the programs
were actually put into use, they probably work fairly well for that use,
but may need work at another site. If the program wasn't put into use,
there may still be significant bugs.
Use these programs at your own risk.
Majorodomo - A Web front end for a popular mailing list server
The majordomo mail list server is a quite popular. Unfortunately
many people cannot seem to get themselves off of a mailing list to the
annoyance of all.
CGI program is a simple program which generates requests to the appropriate
majordomo server. This program does not even need to be installed on your
server to make use of it.
program is a simple CGI program
to generate arithmetic problems based upon certain parameters
that the user can select.
A random image generation program
The randimg program is a trivial program to generate
an image from a directory of images each time it is called.
Webc - A Simple Web Compiler
program is a simple preprocessor which adds a few
commands to standard HTML.
This allows some of the features of Server Side Includes such
as file inclusion, but done once instead of when the file is
sent to the client by the server. The syntax is more remenisent
of the C preprocessor than of SSI.
Webc also allows perl code to be called from your HTML files.
This allows you to have stock boilerplate text but
have custom HTML generated by code inserted into the appropriate
The webc can also be used (with restrictions) in a CGI environment.
This allows most of the HTML code to be edited and maintained in
a traditional fashion, and only the variant parts need to be generated
by Perl code.
I have used this program in a number of applications, and it does
its job quite nicely.
Web calendar generator
The web.calendar program is used to generate
a set of calendar web pages. The events can include HTML codes so that there
can be links from the calendar to other web resources.
Word Search puzzle generator
program is used to generate word search puzzles.
Vi through RCS
The vic program is a simple wrapper program for vi
(or whatever your $VISUAL environment variable is set to) that checks out a
file from RCS, edits it, and then checks it back in.
