Three New MacOS X Utilities Released
P&L Systems has announced three new products for MacOS X and OpenStep. The new products, TimeKeeper, Vacation, and Filemonitor, are all utilities offering small, but handy functions to users. According to P&L Systems:

P&L Systems are pleased to be able to offer the Mac OS X and OpenStep community three useful applications - Timekeeper, FileMonitor and Vacation - to make your day-to-day desktop environment even better to use.

TimeKeeper

Timekeeper is a very useful tool to help you manage global time zones - you can create clocks, alarms and timers to help you deal with today's worldwide business opportunities.

Vacation and Filemonitor

These two utilities give MacOS X and OpenStep users easy-to-use GUIs to various Unix commands.

Vacation lets you easily control what happens to your e-mail (and e-mail responses) when you're not at your 'own' computer for a while. It's a front-end to the Unix vacation and .forward file, and will be useful to anyone who uses e-mail on a MacOS X or OpenStep system.

FileMonitor detects and alerts users to new output to selected files and directories (such as console.log). It's simple to choose what files to monitor. The latest release of Filemonitor incorporates features requested by our customer base, such as monitoring of Directories for changes.

You can find more information about Timekeeper at the company's web site. P&L Systems offers the first license on a network for free; subsequent licenses are priced at US$39 per user.

Vacation and Filemonitor are both freeware.
