What is the last program you wrote (or are currently writing)?

Just curious, I'm looking for ideas. I'm working on an ls clone, with `ls` and `ls -l` functionality. Its not going as well as I had hoped, I keep getting segfault errors. Its forced me to learn more about gdb though, which is always a good thing. My programs almost finished (kind of...) and I'm already trying to think of ideas for my next project. I always seem to get frustrated before I finish a project and start a new one, I haven't finished anything in months.

Side question: Is there such thing as a standard linked list header/library in C or Linux? I'm writing this project in C and I couldn't find much so I wrote my own. Some webpage I found seemed to think that "struct _ENetList" and "struct _ENetListNode" are defined in <stdlib.h> along with functions for manipulating the lists, but I looked through my /usr/include/stdlib.h file and saw nothing of those types. I also found a file called "list.h" in /usr/include/linux/list.h but I seem to think its some sort of header for the kernel, and probably shouldn't be used.

I have one on my Suse system which does just that. It's called 'vdir'.

Check your system.

I am writing a fairly useful program for ripping and encoding your music cds to mp3. The cool thing it does is uses the CDDB data base to get the real names of the songs, so it can name them properly. It also makes the song titles linux friendly by replacing spaces with underscores.

the program is written in python, but uses cdparanoia as the ripping engine. It scans your system for either mp3 or ogg support, and gives you the option to choose what you want your songs encoded with(ogg, or mp3, or left as wave). You are able to set all of the options in a config file to make ripping as easy as putting in the cd and running the command.
