   Picocom                                                                           "As its name suggests, picocom is a minimal dumb-terminal emulation program. It is, in principle, very much like minicom, only it's pico instead of mini! Picocom was designed to serve as a simple, manual, modem configuration, testing, and debugging tool. It has also served (quite well) as a low-tech "terminal-window" to allow operator intervention in PPP connection scripts (something like the ms-windows "open terminal window before / after dialing" feature). It could also prove useful in many other similar tasks. Picocom is ideal for embedded systems since its memory footprint is minimal (less than 20K, when stripped). Apart from being a handy little tool, picocom source distribution includes a simple, easy to use, and thoroughly documented terminal-management library, which could serve other projects as well. This library hides the termios(3) calls, and provides a less complex and safer (though certainly less feature-rich) interface. Picocom runs on Linux, and with minor modifications it could run on any Unix system with the termios(3) library. "

  Sqlite database                                                               "SQLite is a in-process library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine.
The code for SQLite is in the public domain and is thus free for use for any purpose, commercial or private.
SQLite is currently found in more applications than we can count, including several high-profile projects.
SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process.
SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file.
The database file format is cross-platform - you can freely copy a database between 32-bit and 64-bit systems or between big-endian and little-endian architectures. These features make SQLite a popular choice as an Application File Format.
Think of SQLite not as a replacement for Oracle but as a replacement for fopen()"
