This packages contains a small collection of helper functions I have been keeping around. Some of these have already appeared in a StackOverflow answer in 2009 or a blog post in 2011. Others are more local and less refined. Some may even be redundant—it is simply a collection of utility function I use, or maybe have used at some point.
The package tests cleanly as you would expect.
