I don't really understand why people (mainly on the internet) take issue with people "stealing" topics. You don't own the copyright on covering something owned by someone else. I understand taking someone's writings/script as your own but if you do your own research it's very much valuable as new eyes and/or ears engage with the topic, which can further the collective knowledge on it.

To this effect: please make fossmendations of your own! You have 100% full and irrevocable permission to do so.

@blueberry good call, I still prefer to keep my password database as an offline file, but this has very good uses as well.

Previously I had seen solutions like Clipperz, but this seems way more advanced.

For a password manager, I highly recommend Bitwarden.

Bitwarden is FOSS, can be self-hosted, and works on virtually every platform. It also has some nice features like supporting TOTP (which will auto-copy to clipboard when filling in login info). Think of it as a better LastPass

Iโ€™d also recommend keepass, which is also FOSS but doesnโ€™t have servers to sync passwords between devices

is an automatic function declaration generator.

cproto is a tool that parses input C source files and generates a list of forward declarations (prototypes) for any non static functions in the file. cproto operates with both ANSI and K&R style function declarations, and can be used to convert between the two if needed. cproto can optionally include other definitions as well.
