roll is a command-line program that rolls a user-defined dice sequence and displays the result. The die are defined using dN, where N is the number of sides. They can be rolled multiple times by prepending the number of repetitions (e.g., 3d6) and used in simple mathematical expressions (e.g., 2d8+4).
check_writable is a Nagios plugin that checks if one or more directories are writable by checking that the supplied directory is indeed a directory, checking if the the filesystem permissions are OK, creating a temporary file, writing random data to the temporary file, and reading it back. It returns a critical status if one of the tests fails.
svnauthcheck checks the syntax of a subversion authorization file and generates Apache-like permission specifications to be used by other tools such as ViewVC. svnauthcheck, in combination with subversion pre- and post-commit hooks, can be used to delegate the administration of a repository authorization to the end users.
check_afs_rpc is a Nagios plugin for checking AFS file servers to see if there are client connections waiting for a free thread. If there are more than a few of these, AFS performance tends to be very slow; this is a fairly reliable way to catch overloaded file servers. By default, check_rxdebug returns a critical error if there are more than eight connections waiting for a free thread, and a warning if there are more than two. These thresholds can be changed with the --critical and --warning options. check_afs_rpc will always print out a single line of output including the number of blocked connections, and displaying whether this is critical, a warning, or okay.

Sorry that I didn't answer earlier but I didn't notice the comment. Should now work as expected.
