You can visualize the structure of applications & libraries, pull out any documentation and have syntax highlighted & hyperlinked code views of the codebase by generating a document set with Doxygen and GraphViz. If you tell Doxygen to process the source code, (in quite a long list of languages), and to include undocumented code, code fragments &...

Advanced File Renamer There is no type of renaming that this program cannot do (among other things). It supports anything from layman-friendly patterns, to regular expressions, to full on scripting (hence the "can do everything"). It also has a CLI, for the really advanced uses. It will show you the results before renaming your files, so you don't make any ...

You should checkout Veyon. It's open source, available for both Windows and Linux, it does more than you need but those extra features are handy and won't cost you anything. You can simple monitor what the students are doing, but also broadcast your own screen.

You can even set up multiple profiles with different groups of files. It is free of cost, but not open-source. It has a no-install version available here, which I recommend. I have personally used it for years without ...

sed is the tool you're looking for. You can get it from GnuWin32: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/sed.htm. A sed script file can be created that contains the batch of find/replace operations that you want to carry out. The sed commands are all text, so the script file can be easily maintained in a version control system.

I have used the 3 following FTP clients during the past years so here is my feedback: WinSCP: the one that I currently use. There is a portable version, just one .exe file (and the .ini file for configuration). Don't forget to turn on the "Explorer" interface: View > Preferences > Environment > Interface > Explorer, which is (IMHO) handier. Benchmark: it ...

Sync from sync.com at this time still works perfectly on my home XP network. Initial storage is free. Support used to be wonderful, even for the free users, but this seems no longer the case.

I can highly recommend GroceryCrud, which is free.

I use ScreenToGif which is very handy. (Not perfect though, that's why I'm interested for other answers). It is now open-source: https://github.com/NickeManarin/ScreenToGif/ Another free option is OBS (Open Broadcaster Software). A last software I've tried is Camtasia but it's not free.

Microsoft actually has its very own solution to your need in the form of Microsoft Mathematics: https://math.microsoft.com/ There is also Smath Studio which is effectively a free alternative to MathCAD if you’ve ever used that. https://en.smath.com/view/SMathStudio/summary Both are free AND ad-free when I last used them a year or so ago.

In Windows PowerShell already has that capability. Numbers can take suffixes that represent the units in base 2. Just type 12.5GB + 5.8MB + 1392KB and you'll have the size in bytes. To convert to other units divide by the corresponding unit If you need to use decimal units then scale the values manually: 12.5e9 + 5.8e6 + 1392e3 (G = 1e9, M = 1e6, K = 1e3)

If you don't mind the lack of a built-in graphical interface and you're OK with "computerish" notation, a great completely free option is the Python programming language. You don't have to learn any programming per se to use the interactive interpreter as a scientific calculator with fraction support. You do have to import various modules that are included ...

Although not free, there's a cheap (~5$) option - Data Transformer (disclaimer - I'm its developer). It converts between CSV, JSON, XML, and YML locally. It offers a number of conversion settings (with sensible defaults) so you can match the data for your purposes. You can check it out on the Mac App Store or the Microsoft Store.

Give Resilio Sync at try. I found it to work really well with syncing a large number of small files across my 3 devices (desktop, laptop, and NAS server). The only drawback I've seen so far is that it does tend to grow RAM memory over time; apparently the database it uses grows and never deletes old entries. The work around is to either a) don't use so ...

If your needs are relatively simple, AutoHotkey or AutoIt could fit the bill. Yeah, they are best known as tools for automating other GUIs, rather than writing your own; but each one is a full-fledged programming language with its own GUI facilities. They each come with a compiler which generates small, standalone executable binaries.

Davinci Resolve suits my needs. It's gratis. They offer a free version called "Resolve" and a commercial version called "Resolve Studio" for 299 USD: It works on Windows and I tried Windows 10 in particular: It is possible to build scrolling of 9:16 photos in 16:9 format.

I can advertise a tool that I wrote in my spare time. It is not exactly light weight, since it is based on the Electron framework (like VS Code and many others). But it is very simple, because it is just a Markdown viewer and not an editor and it is open source. It has a Windows installer that assigns your *.md files with this tool, i.e. you just double ...

I know this is an old question but I did not want to install another image viewer. However, a web browser works just fine depending on what you need. You can open the image directly in it and then either hit refresh if you want to check or use a reloading extension/addon. Granted, neither will detect a change and then reload but you will be able to keep ...
