This is my attempt at creating a categorized list of console/ncurses programs. If you want to contribute feel free to email me patches or just tell me what to change. The ways you can contribute include but aren't limited to: new programs for the list, new categories, moving something to the appropriate category, and so on and so forth. My contact info are on my website.
This list is not comprehensive. This list also isn't without errors. Some of the commands might be missing in some packages depending on the distribution.
Currently this list contains 504 links to different programs or packages, enjoy.
