- 'CheckInstall' keeps track of all files installed by a "make install" or equivalent, creates a Slackware, RPM, or Debian package with those files, and adds it to the installed packages database, allowing for easy package removal or distribution.
- The cleanlinks program searches the directory tree descended from the current directory for symbolic links whose targets do not exist, and removes them. It then removes all empty directories in that directory tree. It is useful for cleaning up a shadow link tree created with 'lndir' after files have been removed from the real directory.
- 'ClusterIt' is a suite of software to allow easy maintenance of large groups of machines. It does not provide a parallel programing environment, but is used to managing one, or to manage massive server farms. Its features include parallel rsh, parallel copy, parallel virtual xterminals (xterms), and job scheduling facilities for performing parallel compiling. It also has programs to allow barrier syncing in shell scripts.
- The Caldera Open Administration System project is designed to improve the way users administer their GNU/Linux systems. It will be a collection of tools, each of which will include multiple user interfaces. The system will also let users choose the tools they want to use.
- 'comfigure' simplifies the './configure'ing of packages. It remembers the 'configure' options for each one, and uses them automatically if called without options. 'comfigure' automatically recognizes the package name and version from the directory from which it was called. If the stored version is not equal to the current one, 'comfigure' calculates an MD5 digest sum over the output of './configure --help' to see if the available options have changed. If they have, the program asks the user what to do.
- Config General
- With Config::General you can read and write config files and access the parsed contents from a hash structure. The format of config files supported by Config::General is inspired by the Apache config format (and is 100% compatible with Apache configs). It also supports some enhancements such as here-documents, C-style comments, and multiline options.
- 'confstore' is a configuration backup utility. It scans a system for all recognised configuration files and then stores them in a simple archive. It knows what to scan for by reading a definitions file. Confstore can also restore configuration from backup archives it has previously created, upload them to a FTP server, and mail them to an email account.
- Congruit is a lightweight configuration management and automation tool. It is written in Go but works through Bash. It manages shell scripts you created to configure your GNU/Linux platforms.
- 'convmv' converts filenames (not file content), directories, and even whole filesystems to a different encoding. This comes in very handy if, for example, one switches from an 8-bit locale to an UTF-8 locale. It has some smart features: it automagically recognises if a file is already UTF-8 encoded (thus partly converted filesystems can be fully moved to UTF-8) and it also takes care of symlinks. It can also convert from normalization form C (UTF-8 NFC) to NFD and vice-versa.
- This is a fairly complete CPU identification utility that executes the CPUID instruction on x86-family CPUs and decodes the results into English descriptions. It has been tested on several Intel, AMD (including Athlon/Duron) and Cyrix CPUs. If the Pentium III serial number misfeature is present and enabled, this program will display it.
