CRRM, a C++ program which reads a text file and removes the carriage return character.

DEBLANK, a C++ program which reads a text file and writes a copy which has no blank lines.

DECOMMENT, a C++ program which makes a copy of a text file which contains no "comment" lines (that begin with "#").

FILE_NAME_SEQUENCE, a C program which demonstrates ways to generate a sequence of filenames that can be used when generating images for an animation.
