Cool Tools


Hi,
I just want to ask what "cool tools" are available on linux?

"Cool Tool"-> an application (mainly commanline) that you would never look for it...
, but is sometimes quite handy.
e.g. time =a small tool to find out how long another app needs for execution

or imagemagick or alias
.......


^-^
