Info-ZIP, Info-ZIP (freeware!) compatible with pkzip, runs on many operating systems. Note that infozip restores directory structures by default when unzipping, whereas pkzip must be told to do so. I prefer the infozip philosophy... if the directory structure is there... use it!

Info-ZIP's compression engine has been spun off into the compression library zlib, used in Netscape Communicator and many other products.

IBM Employee Written Software - UTLOS2! (Version 2.9: info, programs)
And here are a few little programs of mine. And one that I ported. Mostly for DOS and Windows. However, I have included C sources for some of the DOS programs, and they should be compilable on any system with perhaps only minor modifications unless otherwise noted, though they may not be very useful on those other systems. Except for Cookie, which should definitely be compilable but whose usefulness is debatable. In the archive, you will find two filenames listed for each program. The ZIP file contains the program itself. The TXT file contains a more detailed description of the program than is shown below; you might want to examine this before downloading the programs.

cdp (DOS/UNIX)

Like the familiar cd command, but with some handy added features! The executable is for DOS; if you want to use it with UNIX you'll have to recompile, maybe after tweaking it a little for your system. I use it with HPUX 10.20; it should compile and run there with no trouble at all. And with UNIX, you'll have to create a function or alias or something, since directory change within a program doesn't do anything for the parent shell; see the notes for ksh and posix examples.

cookie (DOS)

Every computer should have a Fortune Cookie program. Stick it in your AUTOEXEC.BAT! Source included.

fortune (DOS/UNIX)

Every computer should have a Fortune Cookie program! Stick it in your .kshrc or your AUTOEXEC.BAT. Source included. This program has been compiled on DOS, HPUX 10.20 & 11, UNIX System V/386 and Red Hat GNU/Linux, and should build on other unices too without too much trouble. DOS executable is included. (I also use this program to randomly generate .sigs for email and news messages. Simply write a little batch file or script to generate a file consisting of a dashdashspace line, a line of static text if desired (like your name or something) and then the fortune output. Then figure out how to tell your mail or news program to use that file as your .sig!) (A good source for taglines or fortunes is taglinesgalore.com. The site also has acronym definitions, and the puke list, and smilies, and other texty fun stuff!)

Well, you are a glutton for punishment, aren't you? This is my DOS port of C-INTERCAL. It's really a translator, generating a C source file which is then passed to your compiler, so you need a C compiler too. Be sure to unzip with the -d switch if you're using pkzip, in order to restore the directory structure. All sources are included, but if you want to rebuild the compiler you'll also need a bison or yacc, and a flex or a lex. See my INTERCAL page for further details.

showtime (DOS)

The name is a legacy from my VMS days. It actually shows the date and/or time in various formats. By means of the -u switch, another date may be selected. The program can also display a simple calendar for the month containing the selected date. RSN Futures: I want to return a daynumber as the exit status so that a batch file can use this information by checking the error level. Source included.
info, code

tm (DOS/HPUX/Linux)

Exercises mktime and such— converts between Unix timevalues and humanfriendly date formats, displays a table showing timevalue range and results for selected timevalues, ktp.
