Python System Admin Utilities

Over the past few years, I've written some utilities to solve certain problems I've encountered. There are all written in Python and require a Python interpreter (version 2.4 or later) to run. Here are a few sources freely-downloadable Python distributions.

I've used all of these in Windows, but haven't tested most on Unix. Since Python is a cross-platform language they should run on Unix, unless there's something Windows-specific about them. I've noted where the utility is written for a specific Operating System.

These utilities are covered by the GNU General Public License, version 2.0 (or later).

It doesn't take a lot of looking at the code for these utilities to see that I'm not a world-class software developer. I tend toward writing procedural code and commenting heavily, so that years after writing a program I can figure it out to debug or modify it. It helps that Python is a language for which readability is a key feature. If you want to see really tight, concise code, you're in the wrong place.

If you find any of these utilities useful, then when you speak of me, speak well. If not, at least speak nicely...
