Most code I'm writing is either in C or Perl, although I'm also experienced to a certain degree in programming in other languages. Bear in mind that some of the code that is being advocated here and on fellow pages, may be slightly out of date or may be considered experimental (varying levels of alpha/beta stages).
A tiny convenience "wrapper" in C around similar functionality exposed in chaining
head | tail (or vice versa),
Cuts slices of lines from one or multiple files with line numbers optionally attached.
Contrary to the utilities mentioned above, it also easily allows for negative
offsets - positive and negative offsets may be even intermixed. Valgrind has been
used extensively to ensure that it is warningfree and hence should not leak memory.
Update: currently discontinued.
Perl modules I wrote and/or are maintained by me are available via CPAN. Alternatively also accessible through git repositories at GitHub.
Some are available from GitHub, too.
Furthermore, I wrote a few scripts that generate HTML, ICal and RSS files for use in conjunction with the event list of the Linux User Group Switzerland. Unfortunately, access to most of the source is currently restricted due to some confidential data it contains.
I have been contributing patches to GNU Wget since approximately begin of April 2008.
I'm currently looking for telecommute project work as a programmer. My interests are: building parsers, writing low-level programs, maintaining software and as well to a certain extent: program and interface design. Languages preferred are Perl and C.
I don't have a formal education in programming nor a higher related degree; however, one of my self-perceived strengths is enthusiasm and endurance. Interacting with people face-to-face is admittedly a bit difficult for me (probably due to slight autistic-like traits).
Drop me a line to the mail address listed below if you're interested in employing me as contractor and have some work to offer.
Do you eventually like some of my efforts and would like to say thanks? I would be very grateful to receive whatever you choose from the wishlist or which amount you decide to donate.

The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity. -- Carlos Castaneda
