Desk Guide Applet

Allows you to visually navigate your virtual desktops.
GNU diffutils manual

This manual documents the GNU `diff', `diff3', `sdiff', and `cmp' commands for showing the differences between text files and the `patch' command for using their output to update files.
GNU m4 manual

This manual documents GNU m4. `m4' is a macro processor, in the sense that it copies its input to the output, expanding macros as it goes. Macros are either builtin or user-defined, and can take any number of arguments. Besides just doing macro expansion, `m4' has builtin functions for including named files, running UNIX commands, doing integer arithmetic, manipulating text in various ways, recursion, etc... `m4' can be used either as a front-end to a compiler, or as a macro processor in its own right.
GNU recode manual

This manual documents GNU indent. The `indent' program can be used to make code easier to read. It can also convert from one style of writing C to another. `indent' understands a substantial amount about the syntax of C, but it also attempts to cope with incomplete and misformed syntax.
GNU sharutils manual

This manual documents GNU sharutils. `shar' makes so-called shell archives out of many files, preparing them for transmission by electronic mail services. `unshar' helps unpacking shell archives after reception. Other related utility programs help with other tasks. `uuencode' prepares a file for transmission over an electronic channel which ignores or otherwise mangles the eight bit (high order bit) of bytes. `uudecode' does the converse transformation.
GTKtalog User's Guide

GTK Disk Catalog is a tool to make disk catalog: you can use it to create a really small database with images of files and directories of your CDs.

Printer Applet

VIM user manual

The vim user manual. Contains task oriented explanations from simplex to complex on using vim.
bzip2 and libbzip2: a program and library for dat

bzip2 compresses files using the Burrows-Wheeler block-sorting text compression algorithm, and Huffman coding. Compression is generally considerably better than that achieved by more conventional LZ77/LZ78-based compressors, and approaches the performance of the PPM family of statistical compressors.
