Version 2.1 of Scid (a free chess database application for Unix and Windows)
is now available. Scid can read PGN and EPD files (and export to PGN, LaTeX
and HTML) and uses its own database format for fast searches. You can use

find and delete twin games, ECO classification, etc).

Scid comes as source code (C++ and Tcl/Tk) for Unix, or precompiled binaries
for Windows. The Scid website is:
