Berkeley Database
The Berkeley Database is an embedded database system. Its access methods include B+tree, Extended Linear Hashing, fixed and variable-length records, and Persistent Queues. Berkeley DB provides full transactional support, database recovery, online backups, and separate access to locking, logging and shared memory caching subsystems. The program supports C, C++, Java, Tcl, Perl, and Python APIs.

Check Postgres
check_postgres is a script for monitoring various attributes of your database. It is designed to work with Nagios, MRTG, or in standalone scripts.

DBA Companion
DBACompanion is a graphical administration tool for Oracle databases that lets you visualise the contents of a data dictionary. It lets you browse the data dictionary, drill down from one piece of information to related ones, generate SQL scripts based on data dictionary information, and customize all the SQL used by the tool.

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.

ELOG (Electronic Web Lobgook) is an electronic logbook with a Web interface. It can be used to maintain personal or shared logbooks, with the ability to add attachments to logbook pages. Logbook entries can be categorized with user-defined classes, and queried using filters on these classes. Automatic email notifications can be sent on new entries based on these classes. The ELOG server is a small stand-alone C program, which runs under GNU/Linux. The logbooks are saved in plain ASCII files for easy and fast access.

GNU SQL Server Heckert gnu.small.png
Portable multiuser relational database management system. It supports the full SQL89 dialect and has some extensions from SQL92. It provides multiuser access and transaction isolation based on predicative locks. The working OS is Unix; the working language is C. The program also uses RPC, shared memory, and message queues. Note: as of June 26, 2001, this program is no longer being maintained or developed.

Gdbm Heckert gnu.small.png
GNU dbm is a set of database routines that use extendible hashing and works similar to the standard UNIX dbm routines. The library provides also an optional compatibility layer for UNIX-like dbm and ndbm calls.

Gurgle Heckert gnu.small.png
As of May 04, 2001, 'grg' has been renamed GURGLE. Reads record and field information from a dBase 3+ file, delimited ASCII text file, or an SQL query to a RDBMS and produces a report listing. The program was designed primarily to produce a TeX/LaTeX formatted output, but plain ASCII text, troff, PostScript, HTML, or any other kind of ASCII based output format can be produced also. The program is ideal for generating large bodies of text where various parts of the text are substituted with information from a database. It's particularly useful for generating mainly static web pages with small amounts of dynamic content. A definition file controls the formatting process, which holds the report, page, and record layouts, what fields to display, and where. Other useful functions include sorting, filtering, and data manipulation of records in the database. Main features include:

  • Multiple input databases or queries
  • Support for ASCII delimited text, dBase 3+, CA-Ingres, GNU SQL, MySQL, and PostgreSQL databases
  • Sorting of database records
  • Automatic banner placement at the start of each sorted group
  • Filters using regular expressions or useer defined function
  • Five main text bodies-- header, footer, record, 1st page, and nth page
  • User defined macros, text bodies, and equations on field contents, including the conditionals
  • User configurable input parsing patterns (default is like awk)
  • Include files
  • Environment variables
  • System variables
  • Multiple file output
  • General purpose processing language
  • Optional GUILE support

IceCat/Form History Control
Manage form history entries (search, edit, cleanup, export/import) and easy text formfiller.

Auto-save text entered in any form while typing to allow fast recovery when disaster strikes.

Control for which webpage form history is saved or not.

Review notes

formhistory.sqlite "remembers what you have searched for in the Firefox search bar and what information you have entered into forms on websites." - Obviously there is no inbuilt manager to handle form history in Firefox which is why you need Form History Control.
