Graphical design of primers for PCR
PerlPrimer is a free, open-source GUI application written in Perl that designs primers for standard Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), bisulphite PCR, real-time PCR (QPCR) and sequencing. It aims to automate and simplify the process of primer design. . If operated online, the tool nicely communicates with the Ensembl project for further insights into the gene structure, i.e., allowing for taking the location of exons and introns into account for the design of the primers. The sequences themselves can be retrieved, too.
Perl script indenter and reformatter
Perltidy is a Perl script which indents and reformats Perl scripts to make them easier to read. . The formatting can be controlled with command line parameters. The default parameter settings approximately follow the suggestions in the Perl Style Guide. . Perltidy can also generate formatted HTML output from POD, and can even generate colored output in HTML for scripts. See examples at
Safely copy stdin to a file
Safecat is a program which implements Daniel Bernstein's maildir algorithm to copy stdin safely to a file in a specified directory. It can be used to write mail messages to a qmail-style maildir, or to write data to a "spool" directory reliably.

helper library for packaging JRuby
This library provides the org.jruby.util.ByteList byte container. . ByteList is simple a collection of bytes in the same way a Java String is a collection of characters. However, its API resembles StringBuffer/StringBuilder more than String because it is a mutable object.
