Plucker is an offline Web and eBook viewer for Palm OS-based handheld devices and PDAs. It comes with Unix/Linux tools and conduits, and Windows and Mac OS X conduits that let you decide exactly what part of the Web you want to view on your PDA (as long as it's in standard HTML or text format). The requested Web pages are processed, compressed, and transferred to the PDA for viewing by the Plucker viewer.
The GNU Autoconf Archive is a collection of more than 450 macros for GNU Autoconf. They can be re-used without imposing any restrictions on the licensing of the generated configure script. In particular, it is possible to use them in configure scripts that are meant for non-free software.
DIET-PC (DIskless Embedded Technology Personal Computer) is a software kit enabling IT professionals to build embedded Linux appliances based on commodity PC or Mac hardware and various commercial embedded appliances. The focus is on platform portability, OS fundamentals and developer friendliness, rather than the end-user UI. The distribution is intended primarily for desktop graphical appliances, particularly thin clients (using the X11/XDMCP, ICA, RDP, and RFB graphics protocols). Although originally a network-booting OS, DIET-PC works well with various forms of solid-state persistent storage and hence is no longer strictly "diskless". The project uses QEMU virtual machines running Debian Linux (under Windows) as self-contained development environments, and hence may also be of interest for its unusual (non-x86) QEMU accomplishments.
geo-* is a set of tools for geocaching, including tools for accessing the www.geocaching.com, opencaching.com, opencaching.us, and navicache.com websites, tools for geocoding addresses and creating maps, and tools for manipulating Mapopolis place guide data. The focus of these tools is to provide a command line driven environment.
slakbootEBS is a software development kit for the automated creation of bootable embedded systems based on Slackware and Busybox. The focus is on i486 and ARM systems that use compact flash devices (handhelds and PC104 type boards). The distribution consists of a primary archive with tools, scripts, and documentation, and additional archives for the i486 and PXA250 binary components.
Snowfence is a simple no-configuration-required Linux iptables firewall for the Sharp Zaurus. It limits the ability of potential attackers to access the Zaurus's services remotely while still allowing the Zaurus's legitimate local user to make use of the network and USB cradle as usual.
Plait (pronounced "play") is a command-line jukebox and music player front end. It understands brief, easy to type queries that pick a single song, mix queries that combine works from multiple artists, and stream queries that find Shoutcast radio streams. A variety of filters are available to pick just the music you want to hear. In order to actually play the music it finds, Plait automatically hands off a playlist to one of the supported music players, or creates a playlist that you can manually load.
The MirBSD Korn Shell (mksh) is an actively developed successor of pdksh (the Public Domain Korn Shell), aimed at producing a shell good for interactive use, but with the primary focus on scripting. It is intended to be portable to most *nix-like operating systems as long as they're not too obscure. mksh incorporates improvements from OpenBSD and Debian, as well as bugfixes and enhancements developed for the MirOS, FreeWRT, and MidnightBSD projects and Android. The emacs command line editing mode is UTF-8 capable, and Byte Order Marks are ignored in scripts. The shell supports large files, as well as all pdksh and some csh, AT&T ksh, zsh, and GNU bash features, is compatible with the Bourne shell and POSIX (within limits), has no limit on array sizes, and incorporates some other useful builtins and features. While being already fast and small (without losing functionality), flags to make it even smaller can be given at compile time. An interactive shell reads "~/.mkshrc" on startup.
Lynis is an security auditing and hardening tool for Unix derivatives like Linux/BSD/Solaris. It performs an in-depth scan on the system to detect software and security issues. Besides information related to security, it will also scan for general system information, installed packages, and possible configuration mistakes. The software is aimed at assisting automated auditing, configuration management, software patch management, vulnerability detection, and malware scanning of Unix-based systems.
