  • minised
    minised is the fast, small sed originally distributed in the GNU toolkit and still distributed with Minix.
  • MiscTools
    MiscTools is a collection of small UNIX utilities that are largely trivial but still useful. These include a binary dump program, a directory browser/selector, a file truncator, an ASCII-code lookup utility, a program for printing fortunes, a curses-based terminal lock program, a program to watch the size of a file, and a few others.
  • moreutils
    moreutils is a growing collection of the Unix tools that nobody thought to write thirty years ago. It includes utilities to get network interface information, to mark standard input with time stamps, to check whether a data stream is UTF-8, to combine the lines in two files using boolean operations, to soak up standard input and write to a file, to edit a directory in your text editor, to insert a text editor into a pipe, and to tee standard input to pipes.
  • MOTDstat

  • msort

  • mtail
    a small tail workalike that performs output coloring using ansi escape sequences
  • Mtools
    a collection of utilities to access MS-DOS disks from Unix without mounting them
  • MTXL
    MTXL is a major overhaul of Leonard Zubkoff's 'mtx' SCSI media changer program.
  • Multi-Copy Device
    mdcp is a command-line utility that allows the user to copy from one disk device to many. The data transfer rate is improved by efficient use of the disks' transfer rate. mdcp is designed to reduce the time it takes to clone disks.
  • Murder
    Murder is designed to bring the standard finger information to a more modern system.
  • mved
    Mved renames multiple files in a deeply paranoid fashion. At the slightest hint that you are going to destroy your files, it will bail out and tell you why.
  • Ncat

  • netpipes
    a package to manipulate BSD TCP/IP stream sockets
  • notwhoami
    a program that generates random identity info
  • num-utils
    a set of programs for dealing with numbers from the Unix command line. Much like the other Unix command line utilities like grep, awk, sort, cut, etc. these utilities work on data from both standard in and data from files
  • OnDir

  • Outlook2Ical
    Outlook2Ical is a simple perl script that converts mail messages produced by MS Outlook Calendar to .calendar file used by the ical program.
  • OutMan

  • parexec
    With parexec you can execute multiple commands in parallel and have their output clearly displayed in one shell, as well as terminating all with one keystroke.
  • pctail
    Python Colorized TAIL, a colorized tail made in python which tails and colorizes syslog output
  • pdmenu
    a full screen menuing system for Unix
  • Perfect Match
    Perfect Match (pmatch) is a small and fast commandline utility for finding duplicate files.
  • Perl webget
    Perl webget is similar to wget, but can use categorized configuration files, analyze Web pages, and "search" for download links as you instruct. Instead of absolute links, it contains heuristics to track newer versions of files.
  • pfree
    pfree is a portable implementation of the free utility.
  • Phantom
    removes blocks of 0x00 from files by replacing them with phantomblocks. That way, a file uses less diskspace
  • Pinfo

  • pkiller
    pkiller is a program that typically runs on a PC-lab client where users log on and off all the time, and where the problem is hanging processes.
  • printargs
    printargs does for command line arguments what printenv does for the environment. The output is bash friendly such that you can assemble the arguments to stdout in a way that bash can parse them on shell level without additional help. This works even for meta-characters or line feeds in arguments. The code also is optimized to compile into a small static executable.
  • prll
    prll is a utility for parallelizing the execution of jobs in bash or zsh.
  • procenv
    procenv is a tool that dumps all attributes of its environment. It can be run as a test tool, to understand what environment a process runs in and for system comparison.
