Linux Software Packages

Marist - SuSE - Turbolinux - Caiman - Red Hat - Debian

The packages in the Debian Woody Distribution:

3270-common Common files for IBM 3270 emulators {x,c,s,tcl}3270, and pr3287.
3270-common contains files referenced in other 3270 packages: /etc/3270/ibm_hosts /usr/bin/x3270if /usr/share/man/man1/x3270if.1 /usr/share/man/man1/x3270-script.1 /usr/share/man/man5/ibm_hosts.5
3dchess 3D chess for X11
3 dimensional Chess for X11R6. Three boards, 96 pieces and 26 directions.
3dwm-clock A 3Dwm apps
The 3Dwm clock application (tdwm-clock) is the first real application that is even remotely useful. It makes use of the 3Dwm Nobel API, including the new solid modeling support, to create a three-dimensional analog clock displaying the current time.
3dwm-csgclient A 3Dwm client
A simple client which is builded using new libsolid. This is only an example on how libsolid work.
3dwm-geoclient A 3Dwm client
This is a very simple 3Dwm client that connects to the exported GeometryKit in the server, creates a Geometry, loads a 3D file from the local system (in this case a simple model of an office, which also happens to be Rob's room), and passes it to the 3Dwm server. The 3Dwm server will happily render any geometry that is created, so running geoclient several times will add more geometries to the graphical output. Please note that you may need to zoom out (using the 'X' key) to see graphical output. The geoclient is able to open native .raw files as well as standard 3ds files (using MeshIO). In other words, you may experiment by loading other files than the supplied office model to the 3Dwm server.
3dwm-pickclient A 3Dwm client
This is an example showing how libzorn work.
3dwm-server Binary server daemon
This package contains display binary server daemon.
3dwm-texclient A 3Dwm client
This is a simple client used for testing the 3Dwm texture capabilities.
3dwm-vncclient A 3Dwm client
This will open a connection to the VNC server from the 3Dwm server, and the graphical output will be displayed on a single quad in the 3Dwm world (you may need to zoom out to see it). Currently, vncclient supports no interaction with the VNC window (the bindings and the actual communication code has been implemented, only the 3Dwm side is missing).
44bsd-rdist 4.4BSD rdist.
This is the traditional rdist from 4.4BSD Lite with FreeBSD fixes. It is provided for compatibility with third-party rdist implementations.
This is the binary package for 4.4BSD rdist.

It can be used for example as an IPv6-capable IRC proxy.
9menu Creates X menus from the shell.
This is 9menu, a simple program that allows you to create X menus from the shell, where each menu item will run a command. 9menu is intended for use with 9wm, but can be used with any other window manager.
9wm An emulation of the Plan 9 window manager 8-1/2.
9wm is an X window manager which attempts to emulate the Plan 9 window manager 8-1/2 as far as possible within the constraints imposed by X.
It provides a simple yet comfortable user interface, without garish decorations or title-bars. Or icons. And it's click-to-type.

abc2mtex An easy way of transcribing folk and traditional music
ABC2MTeX is a package written to typeset tunes stored in an ascii format or abc notation. It was designed primarily for folk and traditional tunes of Western European origin (such as Irish, English and Scottish) which can be written on one stave in standard classical notation. However, it can act as a fast preprocessor for multi-stave music and should be extendible to many other types of music.
The package is small, easy to use and features, amongst other things, the ability to transpose both the music and the abc notation. It will also create an index of all the tunes you have transcribed.
The ability to write tunes in abc notation means that they can be easily and portably stored or transported electronically. This package allows you to typeset them easily too. In addition the notation is not specifically tied to MusicTeX and similar packages have been written to translate to other formats such as postscript and MIDI.
(Note: MusicTeX is not packaged for Debian because MusicTeX is old. Please the new-and-better MusiXTeX package instead. :)

abcde A Better CD Encoder
A frontend program to cdparanoia, wget, cd-discid, id3, and your favorite Ogg or MP3 encoder (defaults to oggenc). Grabs an entire CD and converts each track to Ogg or MP3, then comments or ID3-tags each file, with one command.
abcmidi-yaps Yet another ABC to PostScript converter
This program translates tunes written in the ABC format to PostScript, which can then be viewed on screen or printed. It is essentially a (non-exclusive) alternative to abc2ps, being based on the abc2ps PostScript code together with the ABC parser from the abcmidi package.
abcmidi A converter from ABC to MIDI format and back
This package contains the programs `abc2midi' and `midi2abc', which convert from the abc musical notation format to standard MIDI format and vice-versa. They can generate accompaniment from guitar chords in the abc file, as well as insert various MIDI events; the MIDI-to-abc translation tries to figure out bars, triplets and accidentals on its own.
The package also contains `abc2abc' (an abc prettyprinter/transposer) and `mftext' (a program that will dump a MIDI file as text).
The programs in this package are based on the `midifilelib' distribution available from http://www.harmony-central.com/MIDI/.

afbackup-client Client-Server Backup System (Client side)
This is a client-server backup system offering several workstations a centralized backup to a special backup server. Backing up only one computer is easily possible, too. Any streaming device can be used for writing the data to it, usually this will be a tape device. Writing backups is normally done sequentially: The next writing to tape goes to the end of the previous write no matter where you have restored from in the meantime. THIS IS ONLY THE CLIENT, YOU NEED TO HAVE A SERVER RUNNING ON EITHER THIS OR ANOTHER HOST.
Features: - Authentication of the client is performed before it can take over control - Access restriction for the streamer device -> security - Client-side per-file compression -> reliability - Data stream is written to tape in pieces -> fast finding of files - Tape position logging for each file - Tape capacity is fully used - Full / incremental backups - Raw partitions can be backed up - Client and Server buffering for maximal throughput is done
Note: Tk is required if you want to use the graphical configuration tool instead of the text configuration tool.

afio Archive file manipulation program.
Afio manipulates groups of files, copying them within or between filesystems and an afio archive.
Afio archives are portable as they contain only ASCII-formatted header information. Afio makes cpio-format archives. Afio deals somewhat gracefully with input data corruption. Afio supports multi-volume archives during interactive operation. Afio can make compressed archives that are much safer than compressed tar or cpio archives.
Afio is best used as an `archive engine' in a backup script.
afterstep A window manager with the NEXTSTEP look and feel.
AfterStep is a window manager based on FVWM which attempts to emulate the NEXTSTEP look and feel, while retaining the configurability of its predecessor. Note that this window manager makes extensive use of the color palette. If you have only an 8-bit color display, it will run as packaged, but you may want to modify the configuration to use fewer colors.
AfterStep is a continuation of the BowMan window manager project, but the name was changed to reflect the desire that it do more than simply emulate and become a valuable window manager in its own right.
aggregate CIDR network aggregation and filtering
aggregate is a tool for aggregating CIDR networks. Input is read from stdin and output is written to stdout. It understands IPv4 networks represented as network/prefix, network/netmask and start_address - end_address. It is able to read input in any one of these formats and output in the same or a different format.
It is also able to limit the maximum and minimum prefix length that will be output. This can be used to filter, for instance ignoring all networks with a prefix longer than 24 bits. That is all networks smaller than a traditional Class C.

agrep is a version of standard UNIX grep with the following enhancements: o the ability to search for approximate patterns o it is record oriented rather than just line oriented o multiple patterns with AND (or OR) logic queries
aide Advanced Intrusion Detection Environment
AIDE creates a database from the regular expression rules that it finds from the config file. Once this database is initialized it can be used to verify the integrity of the files. It has several message digest algorithms (md5,sha1,rmd160,tiger,haval,etc.) that are used to check the integrity of the file. More algorithms can be added with relative ease. All of the usual file attributes can also be checked for inconsistencies.
You will almost certainly want to tweak the configuration file in /etc/aide/aide.conf. See manual.html for information on this file.

amanda-client Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver (Client)
Amanda is a backup system designed to archive many computers on a network to a single large-capacity tape drive. This package is suitable for large amounts of data to backup. For smaller solutions take a look at afbackup, tob, taper, ...
Features: * will back up multiple machines in parallel to a holding disk, blasting finished dumps one by one to tape as fast as we can write files to tape. For example, a ~2 Gb 8mm tape on a ~240K/s interface to a host with a large holding disk can be filled by Amanda in under 4 hours. * built on top of standard backup software: Unix dump/restore, and later GNU Tar and others. * does simple tape management: will not overwrite the wrong tape. * supports tape changers via a generic interface. Easily customizable to any type of tape carousel, robot, or stacker that can be controlled via the unix command line. * for a restore, tells you what tapes you need, and finds the proper backup image on the tape for you. * recovers gracefully from errors, including down or hung machines. * reports results, including all errors in detail, in email to operators. * will dynamically adjust backup schedule to keep within constraints: no more juggling by hand when adding disks and computers to network. * includes a pre-run checker program, that conducts sanity checks on both the tape server host and all the client hosts (in parallel), and will send an e-mail report of any problems that could cause the backups to fail. * can compress dumps before sending or after sending over the net, with either compress or gzip. * can optionally synchronize with external backups, for those large timesharing computers where you want to do full dumps when the system is down in single-user mode (since BSD dump is not reliable on active filesystems): Amanda will still do your daily dumps. * lots of other options; Amanda is very configurable.
THIS PACKAGE RELIES ON A RUNNING AMANDA SERVER IN YOUR NETWORK.
For a quick start read the README.client.debian in /usr/share/doc/amanda-client.
Explanation of suggested programs: - awk and gnuplot are needed for plotting statistics of backups

and Auto Nice Daemon
The auto nice daemon activates itself in certain intervals and renices jobs according to their priority and CPU usage. Jobs owned by root are left alone. Jobs are never increased in their priority.
The renice intervals can be adjusted as well as the default nice level and the activation intervals. A priority database stores user/group/job tuples along with their renice values for three CPU usage time ranges. Negative nice levels are interpreted as signals to be sent to a process, triggered by CPU usage; this way, Netscapes going berserk can be killed automatically. The strategy for searching the priority database can be configured.
AND also provides network-wide configuration files with host-specific sections, as well as wildcard/regexp support for commands in the priority database.
angband-doc Documentation for the roguelike game Angband

These files were downloaded from ftp://clockwork.dementia.org/angband, for the most part
angband A single-player, text-based, dungeon simulation
Angband is a single-player, text-based, dungeon simulation derived from the game Moria, which was in turn based on Rogue. It is often described as a "roguelike" game because the look and feel of the game is still quite similar to Rogue.
Angband features many enhancements over Moria: unique foes, artifacts, monster pits and vaults to name a few. Many of these new creatures and objects are drawn from the writings of J.R.R Tolkien, although some of the monsters come straight from classical mythology, Dungeons & Dragons, Rolemaster, or the minds of the orginal Angband coders.
The ultimate goal of the game is to develop a character strong enough to defeat Morgoth, who resides on dungeon level 100. Upon doing so, you will receive the exalted status of "winner" and your character may retire.
Angband is a reference to Morgoth's "prison of iron."
Morgoth was 'the Dark Enemy of Middle-Earth' during its First Age. He was banished by the Valar (offspring of Eru, "god" of J.R.R. Tolkien's world) at the end of the First Age and thus never appears in The Lord of the Rings, set during the Third Age. Sauron, who does figure into those tales, was the most powerful of his servants. Read Tolkien's 'The Silmarillion' for more on the legends of Middle-Earth.

This upload went to non-US nevertheless because I want to have a second opinion. Advantages: * Built-in ANSI X9.17 RNG (Random Number Generator)(CAST/SHA1) * Built-in password quality checking system (now it has support for Bloom filter for faster access --[ BETA ]--) * Two Password Generation Algorithms: 1. Pronounceable Password Generation Algorithm (according to NIST FIPS 181) 2. Random Character Password Generation Algorithm with 35 configurable modes of operation * Configurable password length parameters * Configurable amount of generated passwords * Ability to initialize RNG with user string * Support for /dev/random * Ability to crypt() generated passwords and print them as additional output. * Special parameters to use APG in script * Ability to log password generation requests for network version * Ability to control APG service access using tcpd * Ability to use password generation service from any type of box (Mac, WinXX, etc.) that connected to network * Ability to enforce remote users to use only allowed type of password generation The client/server version of apg has been deliberately omitted.
apmd Utilities for Advanced Power Management (APM)
On laptop computers, the Advanced Power Management (APM) support provides access to battery status information and may help you to conserve battery power, depending on your laptop and the APM implementation. The apmd program also lets you run arbitrary programs when APM events happen (for example, you can eject PCMCIA devices when you suspend, or change hard drive timeouts when you connect the battery).
This package contains apmd(8), a daemon for logging and acting on APM events; and apm(1), a client that prints the information in /proc/apm in a readable format.
apmd is notified of APM events by the APM driver in the kernel.
Recent Debian kernels are built with APM support but it is disabled by default. You need to boot the kernel with the "apm=on" option if you want to enable the driver. (You may need to add this option to your lilo command line.)

apt-listchanges Display new Debian changelog entries from .deb archives
apt-listchanges is a tool to show what has been changed in a new version of a Debian package, as compared to the version currently installed on the system. It does this by extracting the relevant entries from the Debian changelog file, usually found in /usr/share/doc/package/changelog.Debian.gz
It can be run on several .deb archives at a time to get a list of all of the changes that would be effected by installing or upgrading a group of packages. It can be configured to do this automatically during upgrades using apt.
apt-localepurge Dummy installer package for localepurge
Transition package replacing the apt-localepurge package which has been renamed to localepurge. Depends on and installs localepurge and can be purged from the system after having fulfilled its purpose.
apt-move Move cache of Debian packages into a mirror hierarchy
apt-move is used to move a collection of Debian package files into a proper archive hierarchy of the form debian/dists/... It is intended as a tool to help manage the apt-get(8) file cache, but could be configured to work with any collection of Debian packages.
Running apt-move periodically will assist in managing the resulting partial mirror by optionally removing obsolete packages, and creating valid local Packages.gz files. It can also optionally employ rsync(1) to build a partial or complete local mirror of a Debian binary distribution (including an ``installed-packages only'' mirror).
apt-proxy Debian archive proxy and partial mirror builder
apt-proxy automatically builds a Debian HTTP mirror based on requests which pass through the proxy. It's great for multiple Debian machines on the same network with a slower internet link.
The archive is automatically kept up to date using http, ftp or rsync. Cache cleaning of unused and old versions is configurable. You can also import the contents of your apt cache into the archive using apt-proxy-import.
For more information, see the apt-proxy homepage at http://apt-proxy.sourceforge.net
The suggested packages are needed for the following features: wget for http/ftp backend support, rsync for rsyncd backends, dpkg-dev for apt-proxy-import and stat for improved apt-proxy performance.
apt-show-source Shows source-package information
This program parses the APT lists for source packages and the dpkg status file and then lists every package with a different version number than the one installed. It's very useful if your deb-src sources.list entries point to unstable and your deb entries point to stable.
apt-show-versions Lists available package versions with distribution
apt-show-versions parses the dpkg status file and the APT lists for the installed and available package versions and distribution and shows upgrade options within the specific distribution of the selected package.
This is really useful if you have a mixed stable/testing environment and want to list all packages which are from testing and can be upgraded in testing.
apt-spy writes a sources.list file based on bandwidth tests.
Downloads from debian.org a list of current mirrors and tests each of the mirrors for bandwidth. Writes a /etc/apt/sources.list file based on the responses it gets.
apt-utils APT utility programs
This package contains some infrequently used APT utility programs such as apt-ftparchive, apt-sortpkgs and apt-extracttemplates.
apt-extracttemplates is used by debconf to prompt for configuration questions before installation. apt-ftparchive is used to create Package and other index files. apt-sortpkgs is a Package/Source file normalizer.
apt-zip Update a non-networked computer using apt and removable media
These scripts simplify the process of using dselect and apt on a non-networked Debian box, using removable media like ZIP floppies. One generates a `fetch' script (supporting backends such as wget and lftp, in a modular, extensible way) to be run on a host with better connectivity, check space constraints of your removable media, and then install the package on your Debian box.
Note on current version: space-checking is not done and spanning multiple disks is not yet supported.
apt Advanced front-end for dpkg
This is Debian's next generation front-end for the dpkg package manager. It provides the apt-get utility and APT dselect method that provides a simpler, safer way to install and upgrade packages.

aris-extractor Scan system logs for security incidents and report them to ARIS
The Attack Registry and Intelligence Service (ARIS) is a free, user-integrated attack-trending system hosted by SecurityFocus that allows administrators and operators of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) to track, evaluate and respond to security alerts and attacks in a proactive manner.
As an integral piece of the ARIS Analzyer service, SecurityFocus's open-source ARIS Extractor utility distills data provided by IDS attack-list logs to build client portfolios that provide meaningful, graphical analysis of potentially malicious network incidents. By filtering out insignificant or benign data and converting it to a common format (xml), ARIS Extractor streamlines incident reporting for both security professionals and home users in a way that allows IDS operators to focus only on relevant attacks and incidents. Additionally, ARIS Extractor ensures client confidentiality through secure file-transfer protocols and optional IP address suppression.

armagetron-server Server for Armagetron, a 3D Tron-like high speed game.
This package provides the server for Armagetron. This package is not needed to play Armagetron, only to serve network games.
armagetron A 3D Tron-like high speed game.
A 3D Tron-like high speed game. The rules are simple: you ride a light cycle (a kind of motorbike that can only turn 90 degrees at a time, leaves a wall behind and cannot be stopped) and have to avoid running into walls while at the same time you have to try to get your opponent to run into them.
The idea is based on the Disney movie from 1982 called "Tron". If you ever wanted to take a try at one of those speed demons features in the movie, this is your chance. Of all the Tron clones out there, I think one is the one that comes closest to the feeling the movie tries to express. This is in part thanks to the sophisticated camera motions, in part to the superb modelling work and in part to the fabulous sound effects. To add some extra fascination into the game, unlike to other Tron clones, in armagetron you can accelerate. Alas, there's no accelerate button. If you want to drive fast, you have to drive good -- and really really close to the walls.
Armagetron can be played against AI opponents, against other humans over the network, or a mixture of both.
Still not convinced? http://pluto.spaceports.com/~zman/armagetron/

arpd A user-space ARP daemon
The ARP daemon moves the management of the ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) table from kernel to user space. It is useful for sites with LARGE network segments (256+ systems per segment), because the kernel hash tables are not optimized to handle this situation. To use the ARP daemon your kernel needs to have ARPD and NETLINK support enabled. The standard kernels of Debian GNU/Linux lack this support.
arping sends IP and/or ARP pings (to the MAC address)
The arping utility sends ARP and/or ICMP requests to the specified host and displays the replies. The host may be specified by its hostname, its IP address, or its MAC address.

ash NetBSD /bin/sh
"ash" is a POSIX compliant shell that is much smaller than "bash". We take advantage of that by making it the shell on the installation root floppy, where space is at a premium.
It can be usefully installed as /bin/sh (because it executes scripts somewhat faster than "bash"), or as the default shell either of root or of a second user with a userid of 0 (because it depends on fewer libraries, and is therefore less likely to be affected by an upgrade problem or a disk failure). It is also useful for checking that a script uses only POSIX syntax.
"bash" is a better shell for most users, since it has some nice features absent from "ash", and is a required part of the system.

atlas2-base Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software,generic shared
ATLAS is an approach for the automatic generation and optimization of numerical software for processors with deep memory hierarchies and pipelined functional units. The production of such software for machines ranging from desktop workstations to embedded processors can be a tedious and time consuming task. ATLAS has been designed to automate much of this process. We concentrate our efforts on the widely used linear algebra kernels called the Basic Linear Algebra Subroutines (BLAS).
These libraries are built without any processor extension instructions, and should run on all processors of this general architecture, albeit less than optimally.

aub Assembles binary files from USENET
AUB automatically assembles the pieces of multi-part Usenet postings and decodes them. A user-supplied configuration file tells which newsgroups AUB should monitor. The user can also supply a "hook" program, which tests each subject header and determines whether that particular file should be downloaded or not.
Resumed development resuming after 10 years of inactivity has given AUB the better documentation and the new abilities to decode Base64 files, perform NNTP authentication as well as a good deal of additional functionality.
auctex An integrated environment for writing TeX/LaTeX documents.
AUC TeX can indent your text as you write it, let you run TeX/LaTeX and other LaTeX-related tools (such as a output filter or post processor) from within Emacs, and includes a wide range of Emacs macros to allow both easy insertions of LaTeX commands, and easy compilation, previewing, and printing of your TeX documents.
AUC TeX also lets you browse through compiling errors TeX reports, while it moves the cursor directly to the reported error and displays documentation for that particular error. This will even work when the document is spread over several files.
Currently XEmacs ships with its own AUC TeX, so this package should only be used with GNU/Emacs. (I.e., you don't need to install this package if your site uses only XEmacs.)
audacity A fast, cross-platform audio editor
Audacity is an innovative graphical audio editor. Its main goals are speed and being cross-platform (it uses the cross-platform toolkit wxWindows, and is fully supported on Linux, Windows, Mac OS 9 and X, and FreeBSD).
It is very fast. Due to its file format and internal data representation, undo and redo are constant-time operations. It also supports an unlimited number of tracks, and can import and export a number of different formats including WAV, AIFF, MP3 and Ogg Vorbis.
audiooss transparent OSS emulation over NAS
This is a compatibility utility that allows programs written for the popular Open Sound System (OSS) interface to run using the Network Audio System (NAS) instead. It works by preloading a library to intercept and manipulate critical system calls such as open(), read(), and write(). The emulation is not yet complete, but it already works for many programs.

autoclass automatic classification or clustering
AutoClass solves the problem of automatic discovery of classes in data (sometimes called clustering, or unsupervised learning), as distinct from the generation of class descriptions from labeled examples (called supervised learning). It aims to discover the "natural" classes in the data. AutoClass is applicable to observations of things that can be described by a set of attributes, without referring to other things. The data values corresponding to each attribute are limited to be either numbers or the elements of a fixed set of symbols. With numeric data, a measurement error must be provided. For more information, see http://ic-www.arc.nasa.gov/ic/projects/bayes-group/autoclass/.

autoinstall Progeny Debian auto-installation system
This package contains the Progeny Debian auto-installation system. This system makes it possible to install a complete Debian system with no user interaction from a set of configuration files.
The basic model is that of cloning an existing system; after installing and configuring a Debian system to taste, the configuration is "dumped" to the configuration files, along with some extra information.
It currently supports flexible constraints for partitioning differently-sized disks in a logical fashion, hardware auto-configuration with discover (including configuration of X, if appropriate), network configuration via DHCP or a database based on MAC addresses, and a cross-platform design making it possible for install media for any platform to be created on any other platform.
Platform-specific files are not included in this package; install the "autoinstall-<arch>" packages to install support for <arch>.
autolog Terminates connections for idle users
Autolog terminates connections considered to be idle based on a large variety of parameters.
automake1.5 A tool for generating GNU Standards-compliant Makefiles.
Automake is a tool for automatically generating `Makefile.in's from files called `Makefile.am'.
The goal of Automake is to remove the burden of Makefile maintenance from the back of the individual GNU maintainer (and put it on the back of the Automake maintainer).
The `Makefile.am' is basically a series of `make' macro definitions (with rules being thrown in occasionally). The generated `Makefile.in's are compliant with the GNU Makefile standards.
Automake 1.5 fails to work in a number of situations that Automake 1.4 did, so has been renamed so that the previous version can continue to be made available.
automake A tool for generating GNU Standards-compliant Makefiles.
Automake is a tool for automatically generating `Makefile.in's from files called `Makefile.am'.
The goal of Automake is to remove the burden of Makefile maintenance from the back of the individual GNU maintainer (and put it on the back of the Automake maintainer).
The `Makefile.am' is basically a series of `make' macro definitions (with rules being thrown in occasionally). The generated `Makefile.in's are compliant with the GNU Makefile standards.
autopilot Monitor the DTR line of /dev/palm and run a command to start sync

autoproject create a skeleton source package for a new program
autoproject interviews the user, then creates a source package for a new program which follows the GNU programming standards. The new package uses autoconf to configure itself, and automake to create the Makefile. `make distcheck' succeeds.
The idea is that you execute autoproject just once when you start a new project. It will ask a few questions, then create a new directory and populate it with standard files, customized for the new project.
Optionally, the new package will use a command line parser generator. Currently, autoproject supports two parser generators: clig by Harald Kirsch <kir@iitb.fhg.de> (see http://wsd.iitb.fhg.de/software/), and autogen by Bruce Korb <korbb@datadesign.com> (see ftp://autogen.linuxbox.com/pub/).

axkit An XML Delivery Toolkit for Apache
AxKit is an XML Application Server for Apache. It provides on-the-fly conversion from XML to any format, such as HTML, WAP or text using either W3C standard techniques, or flexible custom code. AxKit also uses a built-in Perl interpreter to provide some amazingly powerful techniques for XML transformation.
The emphasis with AxKit is on separation of content from presentation. The pipelining technique that AxKit uses allows content to be converted to a presentable format in stages, allowing certain platforms to see data differently to others. AxKit allows web designers to focus on web site design, content developers to work on a purely content basis, and webmasters to focus on their core competencies.
AxKit is based on plugin components. This allows the web site developer to create a completely custom XML Application Server based around the AxKit API. AxKit can either automatically provide caching facilities, or you can create your own cache handler, so that XML transformations (which can be time consuming) only happen when required.
The toolkit also provides ability to build component based web sites, and dynamic content. Database integration is fully supported, allowing either deliver of XML from a database, or XML generation from a database query. Dynamic web components can be built using the Perl language, making the possibilities as infinite as CGI scripts, without the potential mess that CGI programming can cause.

beep Advanced pc-speaker beeper
beep does what you'd expect: it beeps. But unlike printf "\a" beep allows you to control pitch, duration, and repetitions. Its job is to live inside shell/perl scripts and allow more granularity than one has otherwise. It is controlled completely through command line options. It's not supposed to be complex, and it isn't - but it makes system monitoring (or whatever else it gets hacked into) much more informative.
bf-utf-source Source for fonts needed to build boot-floppies.
This package contains bdf fonts needed to build the international version of boot-floppies. These fonts used to be in boot-floppies cvs but pserver had difficulty with such large files. The files are now in their own package.
If you aren't building boot-floppies you probably don't need this package.
bfbtester Brute Force Binary Tester
BFBTester is great for doing quick, proactive, security checks of binary programs. BFBTester will perform checks of single and multiple argument command line overflows as well as environment variable overflows. BFBTester can also watch for tempfile creation activity to alert the user of any programs using unsafe tempfile names. While BFBTester can not test all overflows in software, it is useful for detecting initial mistakes that can red flag dangerous software.
bfr nonblocking 8-bit-clean pipe buffer
bfr's purpose is to buffer data. It buffers from its standard input and/or a list of files of your choosing, and allows this data to flow to its standard output at whatever rate that end can handle. It's useful for any situation in which its beneficial to have I/O occur in a detached yet smooth fashion. Also contained is bfp, a buffering /dev/dsp writer. Pipe your raw PCM data to it, for skip-free bliss.
bg5cc Big-5 wide-characters rectifier
Bg5cc converts `\' in Big-5 wide-characters that appear in source programs to `\\'. This ensures programs that contain Big-5 characters can be compiled correctly. Bg5cc should have little use to end-users.
bg5ps A utility to print Chinese Big5/GB documents using TrueType fonts
Bg5ps is a utility to output a Postscript file from a Chinese Big5 or GB2312 encoded document by using TrueType fonts.
Postscript files produced by Netscape and mpage that contain Big5 or GB2312 characters can be filtered by bg5ps so that the Chinese characters within can be printed correctly.
If you want to use the configuration tool 'bg5psconf', make sure you have the package python-gtk installed.
bibindex Fast lookup in BibTeX bibliography data bases
bibindex converts a .bib file to a .bix file, which is a compact binary representation of the .bib file containing hash tables for fast lookup, as well as byte offset positions into the corresponding .bib file.
biblook provides an interactive lookup facility using the .bix and .bib files. It verifies that the file version number and bibindex version number match its own values, and also compares the file time stamps so that it can detect whether the .bix file is out-of-date with respect to the .bib file. In either case, execution terminates.
This Debian package features a command line history mechanism through the GNU readline library.
bible-kjv-text King James Version of the Bible - text and concordance
This package contains the King James Version of the Bible (translated in 1611) which is and was widely used in the English speaking culture, together with a full concordance.

bibview X11 Bibliography database tool
bibview is a tool to let you set up and maintain BibTeX bibliography databases. LaTeX can then use these automatically in citations and bibliographies in your documents.
From its README:
It [bibview] supports the user in making new entries, searching for entries and moving entries from one BiB to another. It is possible to work with more than one BiB simultaneously. bibview is implemented with Xt and Athena Widgets. There are six types of windows in bibview: The main window contains menus for customizing bibview and for working with BiBs on the file level. The bibliography window (one for every open BiB) contains commands for manipulating the BiB. The list window (at most one for every open BiB) shows a list of entries. It displays the fields author, title, type and year. The card window (at most one for every entry) helps editing an entry. It contains boxes for each field of the entry (according to the type). The fields can be edited by putting the mouse cursor into the field. Macros in fields and the symbol for concatenation ('#') are marked with a preceding '@'.
bidentd Bisqwit's identd
Bisqwit's identd is an Identification Protocol (RFC 1413) daemon. It works like an ident daemon is supposed to work. Masquerading is supported, and works recursively. Works only under Linux, due to the use of /proc filesystem.
A typical case for using Bisqwit's identd: - Alpha has the internet connection. It has an ip in internet. - Beta is masqueraded by Alpha. - Gamma is masqueraded by Beta. - Somebody in Gamma starts irc, and the irc server (in internet) gets the username of the user in Gamma, correctly. All of these computers would be running bidentd (from inetd), although Gamma could have any ident daemon, as it does not masquerade further.

bitcollider-plugins bitcollider plugins
These plugins allow the bitcollider program to get metadata from rich media files. So far, there are plugins for ogg vorbis and wav files.
Think of it as a really big file hash database on the internet with constant contributions from others of metadata on files.
Bitcollider is a small program to reliably identify and describe files on your machine. When run with a specific file as input, this program does two major things:
* It examines the file, calculating a distinctive digital fingerprint, or bitprint, and taking note of some other identifying information that can be extracted from the file, like file length and the local filename. * It launches your web browser to do a lookup at our website, submitting this identifying information as the search terms.
At bitzi.com you'll see what - if anything - others have said about your file, and have a chance to contribute descriptions or comments yourself. If your automatic submission included information useful to our database, that new information will be contributed to the database under your screen name.

blackbox Window manager for X
This is a window manager for X. It is similar in many respects to such popular packages as Window Maker, Enlightenment, and FVWM2. You might be interested in this package if you are tired of window managers that are a heavy drain on your system resources, but you still want an attractive and modern-looking interface.
The best part of all is that this program is coded in C++, so it is even more attractive "under the hood" than it is in service -- no small feat.
If none of this sounds familiar to you, or you want your computer to look like Microsoft Windows or Apple's OS X, you probably don't want this package.
blackened A feature rich ircII based IRC client
IRC (Internet Relay Chat) provides a way of communicating in real time with people from all over the world. It consists of various separate networks (or "nets") of IRC servers, machines that allow users to connect to IRC. The largest nets are EFnet (the original IRC net, often having more than 32,000 people at once), Undernet, IRCnet, DALnet, NewNet and OPN.
Generally, the user (such as you) runs a program (called a "client") to connect to a server on one of the IRC nets. The server relays information to and from other servers on the same net.
The ircII program is the first widely used IRC client. IrcII has spawned several other clients in modern times, all of which keep the basic ircII command set and add to it in various more or less useful ways.
Blackened is an enhanced ircII based IRC client that offers a variety of features not found in other clients, including commands designed for IRC server operators and administrators. Normal users also benefit from additional functionality.

blt-demo blt demo scripts - a tcl/tk extension library
This is the demonstration scripts for BLT. You should only need this if you are interested in seeing what BLT can do, or are having trouble understanding the syntax of some BLT commands.
BLT is an extension to the Tk toolkit, adding new widgets, geometry managers, and miscellaneous commands. It does not require any patching of the Tcl or Tk source files.
blt-dev Development in blt - a tcl/tk extension library
This is the development package for BLT. You should only need this if you are developing programs in BLT. The library name is BLT8.3.
BLT is an extension to the Tk toolkit, adding new widgets, geometry managers, and miscellaneous commands. It does not require any patching of the Tcl or Tk source files.
BLT now has a "lite" version with no graphics for use with pure tcl scripts. Both this and the full version are included.
blt8.0-dev Development in blt and tk8.0 - a tcl/tk extension library
This is the development package for BLT. You should only need this if you are developing programs in BLT.
This is package blt-dev linked to tk/tcl 8.0. Package blt-dev is always linked for the newest tk/tcl package available in Debian. However, this also means that package blt-dev is often unstable. Note that the libraries in blt8.0-dev is called BLT8.0, which is slightly incompatible with the rest of the world but allows us in the future to have multiple BLT development environments in stalled simultaneously.
BLT is an extension to the Tk toolkit, adding new widgets, geometry managers, and miscellaneous commands. It does not require any patching of the Tcl or Tk source files.
blt Shared libraries for blt
This is the shared libraries for BLT. You should only need this if you are using programs which are linked to blt, or are developing programs in BLT.
BLT is an extension to the Tk toolkit, adding new widgets, geometry managers, and miscellaneous commands. It does not require any patching of the Tcl or Tk source files.
An attempt is being made to unify the BLT libraries so that the package is independent of whatever tcl/tk library (e.g. 8.0,8.2,8.3) you are using. This will be via the tcl stubs interface. As part of this process, blt8.0 is obsolete and this package dynamically chooses the correct version of BLT library to match your situation. This makes is a lot bigger than if you choose the library versions yourself, but means that you always have the version you need (not always the case under the old system)

boa Lightweight and High Performance WebServer
Boa is a single-tasking HTTP server. That means that unlike traditional web servers, it does not fork for each incoming connection, nor does it fork many copies of itself to handle multiple connections. It internally multiplexes all of the ongoing HTTP connections, and forks only for CGI programs (which must be separate processes.) Preliminary tests show boa is capable of handling several hundred hits per second on a 100 MHz Pentium.

bock Bootstrap-only compiler kit for a subset of Java(tm)
BOCK is a prototype native compiler, originally intended to enable a Java(tm) development environment to be bootstrapped from a C-only environment. It was envisioned that its sole purpose in life would be to compile the forthcoming "Jackal" Java compiler.
BOCK has, since then, gained functionality, and should soon be able to compile most non-graphical Java programs. Its lack of anything resembling error checking means that it won't be of much use for development, but it might be able to generate a reasonably fast binary version of your program.
That said, BOCK is still very much in the pre-alpha testing stage. It is therefore unlikely to be of use to anyone except dedicated hackers and developers.
Also included is "jcomp", a slightly more friendly front-end for bock, which compiles programs against the BOCK mini-library and compiles BOCK's C output to native code in one step.

The bombs explode after a short time delay, taking out any nearby bricks and players. For maximum effect, bombs can be arranged so as to cause a chain reaction of explosions. The last player left is the winner.
bonnie++ Hard drive bottleneck testing benchmark suite.
It is called Bonnie++ because it was based on the Bonnie program. This program also tests performance with creating large numbers of files. Now includes zcav raw-read test program. A modern hard drive will have more sectors in the outer tracks because they are longer. The hard drive will have a number (often more than 8) of zones where each zone has the same number of sectors (due to the need for an integral number of sectors per track). This program allows you to determine the levels of performance provided by different zones and store them in a convenient format for gnuplot.

This package contains utilities for configuring the Linux ethernet bridge. The Linux ethernet bridge can be used for connecting multiple ethernet devices together. The connecting is fully transparent: hosts connected to one ethernet device see hosts connected to the other ethernet devices directly.
browser-history User daemon that tracks URLs looked at and logs them.
Browser-history came from the will to overcome a Netscape bug: there is no global history, and if you close a window, its whole history is lost. For people browsing lots of sites, having the possibility of backtracking to where one has been before means that you don't have to put everything in your bookmarks file. If you are not sure if a site may be worth remembering, don't add it in your bookmarks. If you need it later, just browse your history files.
It works with: Netscape Navigator, Arena, and Amaya. Support for `browser-history' can easily be added to other browsers, provided you can program and have the browser sources.
A manual page and simple documentation will be installed in /usr/share/doc/browser-history/browser-history.html, along with a simple CGI interface to grep the history log and display the result. The optional CGI program requires `cgiwrap' or Apache configured with `suexec'.

bsmtpd Batched SMTP mailer for sendmail and postfix
This package adds a new "mailer" named bsmtp to sendmail or postfix, which allows you to use batched SMTP as protocol. BSMTP is used in UUCP environments and allows to transport many mails as a (compressed) batch instead of transporting every single mail. So bsmtp is an alternative to rmail.
Special features of this bsmtp package: - Completely written in C. - Configurable batch size (automatically sends batch to uux when a defined size is reached). - Creates backups of all outgoing batches (and removes them regularly) - Works with sendmail and postfix.
btoa Convert binary to ascii and vice versa
Btoa converts 4 binary characters to 5 ascii ones, causing a 25% expansion. Spaces will not be used, which should make it safe to send files over Usenet without risking that blanks become tabs.
btyacc Backtracking parser generator based on byacc
btyacc is a hacked version of the original Berkeley "byacc". The main change to byacc is the addition of backtracking code, allowing you to try both alternatives in case of shift-reduce or reduce-reduce conflicts. As long as no backtracking takes place, speed is comparable to bison.
Additional features: - enhanced support for storing of text position information for tokens - closes the potential *yacc/bison memory leak during error recovery - preprocessor directives like %ifdef, %include - C++ friendly
Related packages: bison, byacc, antlr

buici-clock attractive desktop clock
As clocks go, Buici satisfies the basic need of representing the time accurately and attractively. I wrote it when I began to use X as my primary desktop environment and wanted to have a decent looking clock on my desktop. I loathe digital clocks. This release has limited configurability.
build-essential Informational list of build-essential packages
If you do not plan to build Debian packages, you don't need this package. Moreover this package is not required for building Debian packages.
This package contains an informational list of packages which are considered essential for building Debian packages. This package also depends on the packages on that list, to make it easy to have the build-essential packages installed.
If you have this package installed, you only need to install whatever a package specifies as its build-time dependencies to build the package. Conversely, if you are determining what your package needs to build-depend on, you can always leave out the packages this package depends on.
This package is NOT the definition of what packages are build-essential; the real definition is in the Debian Policy Manual. This package contains merely an informational list, which is all most people need. However, if this package and the manual disagree, the manual is correct.
bulkmail Speed up delivery of e-mail to large numbers of recipients.
This is a C program to do "bulk" mailing. For input, it takes a file of recipient addresses (one address per line) and a message (with headers already attached) to be sent to the recipients. It sorts the recipient list by reversed domain (so similar ones sort together), splits up the recipients into several groups containing no more than N domains each, creates an SMTP envelope for each group of recipients, and feeds that envelope to "/usr/lib/sendmail -bs".
Smartlist also contains a bulkmail-style tool.

BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for the most common utilities you would usually find on your desktop system (i.e., ls, cp, mv, mount, tar, etc.). The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts.
BusyBox-static provides you with a statically linked simple stand alone shell that provides all the utilities available in BusyBox. This package is intended to be used as a rescue shell, in the event that you screw up your system. Invoke "busybox sh" and you have a standalone shell ready to save your system from certain destruction. Invoke "busybox", and it will list the available builtin commands.
busybox Tiny utilities for small and embedded systems.
BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for the most common utilities you would usually find on your desktop system (i.e., ls, cp, mv, mount, tar, etc.). The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts.
This package installs the BusyBox binary but does not install symlinks for any of the supported utilities. You can use /bin/busybox --install to install BusyBox to the current directory (you do not want to do this in / on your Debian system!).

bzrelay is a firewall tunnel for bzfs. It uses TCP and allows you and your firewalled company of friends to beat into submission other BZFlag players.
bzflag a 3D first person tank battle game
BZFlag is a 3D multi-player tank battle game that allows users to play against each other in a networked environ- ment. There are five teams: red, green, blue, purple and rogue (rogue tanks are black). Destroying a player on another team scores a win, while being destroyed or destroying a teammate scores a loss. Rogues have no team- mates (not even other rogues), so they cannot shoot team- mates and they do not have a team score.
There are two main styles of play: capture-the-flag and free-for-all. In capture-the-flag, each team (except rogues) has a team base and each team with at least one player has a team flag. The object is to capture an enemy team's flag by bringing it to your team's base. This destroys every player on the captured team, subtracts one from that team's score, and adds one to your team's score. In free-for-all, there are no team flags or team bases. The object is simply to get as high a score as possible.
bzip2 A high-quality block-sorting file compressor - utilities
bzip2 is a freely available, patent free, high-quality data compressor. It typically compresses files to within 10% to 15% of the best available techniques, whilst being around twice as fast at compression and six times faster at decompression.
bzip2 compresses files using the Burrows-Wheeler block-sorting text compression algorithm, and Huffman coding. Compression is generally considerably better than that achieved by more conventional LZ77/LZ78-based compressors, and approaches the performance of the PPM family of statistical compressors.
The archive file format of bzip2 (.bz2) is incompatible with that of its predecessor, bzip (.bz).

c2man Graham Stoney's mechanized man page generator
C2man is an automatic documentation tool that extracts comments from C source code to generate functional interface documentation in the same format as sections 2 & 3 of the Unix Programmer's Manual. It requires minimal effort from the programmer by looking for comments in the usual places near the objects they document, rather than imposing a rigid function-comment syntax or requiring that the programmer learn and use a typesetting language. Acceptable documentation can often be generated from existing code with no modifications.
conformance: supports both K&R and ISO/ANSI C coding styles
Features: * generates output in nroff -man, TeXinfo, LaTeX or HTML format * handles comments as part of the language grammar * automagically documents enum parameter & return values * handles C (/* */) and C++ (//) style comments Problems: * doesn't handle C++ grammar (yet) * doxygen does this job better

flon simply uses the ~/.friends file to instruct it on which users to display. Flon can also act like a BSD style who(1), if invoked with the -w option or from a symlink named 'who'.
to is rather like write(1), except that it accepts input as command line arguments rather than on the standard input. It uses ~/.torc for configuration, and can be configured to autoreply to messages in different ways depending on whether you're logged in or not or if your terminal is idle, and can also exclude individual users from sending messages to your terminal.
catalog Tool to create,maintain and display Yahoo! like directories.
Catalog is a perl program that allows to create, maintain and display Yahoo! like directories. The user interface is 100% HTML. It requires a MySQL database to run.
The general idea behind the design of Catalog is that creating a catalog is mainly a matter of organizing objects in a structured tree. For Catalog the objects are records in a table of the SQL database. The structured tree is a set of tree nodes and relations between these nodes. The maintainer of the catalog is in charge of building the tree and placing objects in this tree.
Here is a short list of the functions provided by Catalog:
* Display structured trees of resources. * Display chronologically ordered resources and associated calendar. * Display alphabetical indexes of resources. * Allow full text search in the resources and the category names. * Powerful HTML based administration of catalogs. * On-Line editing of resource records. * Handle an arbitrary number of catalogs. * High performances using mod_perl and Apache. * Easy customization of the user view using HTML template files. * It is possible to define more than one view of the same catalog. * Load and unload a thematic catalog in XML. * Create an HTML dump of a structured tree to publish a static version. * Complete documentation including a guide and a reference manual. * Ready to use example.
catdoc MS-Word to TeX or plain text converter
This program extracts text from MS-Word files, trying to preserve as many special printable characters as possible. catdoc supports everything up to Word-97.
It doesn't even try to preserve fancy Word formatting, because Word users usually don't care about document structure, and it is this very thing which is important to LaTeX users.
Also provided is xls2csv, which extracts data from Excel spreadsheets and outputs it in comma-separated-value format.
This package suggests tk because it also includes wordview, an optional Tk-based GUI for catdoc. The MIME config provided in this package will use wordview is X is running, or catdoc directly if it is not.
catdvi DVI to plain text translator
CatDVI translates a TeX Device Independent (DVI) file into a readable plaintext file. It aims to generate high-quality output that reproduces all aspects of the DVI file within the limits of the output medium. CatDVI uses Unicode internally and can output ASCII, ISO Latin 1 and UTF-8 Unicode.
CatDVI can be used for previewing TeX documents on character-cell displays such as traditional terminals and terminal emulators. It is also possible to use it in generation of plain text documents from TeX source, assuming that the document is written with this conversion in mind.
CatDVI is under development and as such yet incomplete. However, it is quite useful even in its current form and already outperforms some of its competition in some areas.
CatDVI requires that the TFM files for all fonts used in its input DVI files are installed or can be generated by kpathsea.

cdbackup CD-R(W) backup utility
cdbackup and cdrestore are a pair of utilities designed to facilitiate streaming backup to and from CD-R(W) disks. Specificially, they were designed to work with dump/restore, but tar/cpio/whatever you want should work, so long as it writes to stdout for backups and reads from stdin for restores.
cdcd command line or console based CD player
cdcd works in two ways, accepting commands directly off the command line or in a query mode similar to other UNIX programs. To pass a command to cdcd, simply run cdcd with the command as the argument (e.g. cdcd play). This is great for using cron and cdcd together to make a CD alarm clock. Or you can run cdcd without arguments and you will be given the cdcd command prompt.
cdcontrol A parallel burner that allow you to write to one or more CD-Writter at once
CDcontrol is a parallel CD burner program. It's allow you write to a unlimited number or CD writers (IDE and SCSI) at once time. The CDcontrol is the first burning system of that type that I know for *nix operating system and it's all under GPL license.
Some of it's features are better than commercial systems that I've hear about (and fully support CD images and all data type supported by cdrecord program), one of these features is the separated control of each recorder once the recording is started (avoid problems due a fail or speed problem in other writers).
The CDcontrol itself has a daily production report for each writter and fails of writting, in cases of more serious errors, a technical report is also written (it's content is a full cdrecord output for that writter, plus the time when it happens).
Other interesting feature is the automatic calculation of copies, enabling only the writers requested to complete the number and skipping all that are disabled.
The CDcontrol come with the following tools: cd-memoria - Read the CD image and write it on the permanent memory (HD, Raid, CDRW, etc). memoria-cd - Read the CD image and write it on all writers. apagar-cdcontrol - Delete a CD image from permanent memory config-cdcontrol - Allow you to manually enable/disable one or more writers. rel-cdcontrol - Allow you to read the success/fail reports of each day (the technician report is found at the subdirectory $LOG_DIR/tec and should be read as any text file in the system).

cdfs-src shows the tracks on a CD as normal files
CDfs is a file system for Linux systems that `exports' all tracks and boot images on a CD as normal files. These files can then be mounted (e.g. for ISO and boot images), copied, played (WAVE audio and VideoCD tracks)... The primary goal for developing this file system was to `unlock' information in old ISO images.
cdindex-client cdindex is intended to be the open source replacement of cddb(tm)
cdindex is a system that allows the web based submission of title, artist information of CDs and the retrieval.
It is completely web based (cgi / html / xml) and uses a web browser for submission / retrieval.
cdlabelgen generates front cards and tray cards for CDs
cdlabelgen was designed to simplify the process of generating labels for CDs. It originated as a program to allow auto generation of front cards and tray cards for CDs burned via an automated mechanism (specifically for archiving data), but has now become popular for labelling CD compilations of mp3's, and copies of CDs. Note that cdlabelgen does not actually print anything--it just spits out postscript, which you can then do with as you please.

celestia A real-time visual space simulation
Celestia is a real-time visual simulation of space. Choose a point within the Local Group of galaxies, and Celestia will show you an approximation of how it would appear to your eyes were you actually there. Some of what Celestia shows is necessarily hypothetical--the farther away from Earth you get, the less real data there is and the more guesswork is involved. Thus Celestia supplements observational data with good guesses based on models of stellar and planetary processes.
Celestia is unique in its ability to allow you to navigate at an immense range of scales. Orbit a couple kilometers above the surface of a tiny, irregular asteroid, then head off toward Jupiter, watching it grow from a bright point of light into a looming sphere filling your field of vision. Leave our solar system entirely and observe the sun as it fades from a brilliant disk to a bright star, disappearing almost entirely as you head off toward the Upsilon Andromeda system to orbit around its innermost giant planet.

cheesetracker Sound Module Tracking Program (IT - Impulse Tracker Clone)
This program is used to create what is called 'Sound Modules', files containing samples of, for instance, piano's and guitars, and a couple of play-patterns with notes, durations and effects. If these patterns are sequenced, a melody will play according to the notes and instruments you set in the pattern. This program is a direct clone of the MSDOS program called Impulse Tracker. It's not hard to learn, and very funny to play around with. This version is only capable of loading .IT type files (the original Impulse Tracker format). To start and find some cool pre-made tunes go to ftp://ftp.scene.org/pub/music/.

chicken A simple Scheme-to-C compiler
Why CHICKEN?
- R5RS support. - SRFIs 0, 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 16, 18, 22 and 23 - Syntax-case highlevel macros - Lightweight threads based on first-class continuations - Pattern matching with Andrew Wright's match package - Record structures - A simple and straightforward module system - An object system with multiple inheritance, multimethods and a meta-object protocol - Separated compilation poses no problem and full tail-recursion and first-class continuations are suported. - Extended comment- and string-literal syntaxes - Libraries for regular expressions, string handling, Common LISP style format, UNIX system calls and extended data structures - Create interpreted or compiled shell scripts written in Scheme - Compiled C files can be easily distributed - Generates quite portable C code and compiled files generated by it (including itself) should work without any change on DOS, Windows, most UNIX-like platforms, and with minor changes on other systems. - Linkage to C modules and C library functions is straightforward. Compiled programs can easily be embedded into existing C code. - Simple. It can be used as a pedagogical tool for anybody who is interested in the workings of a compiler. - Extendable, since its code generation scheme, runtime system, and garbage collector fit neatly into a C environment. - Offers better performance than nearly all interpreter based implementations, but still provides full Scheme semantics. - Probably is the first implementation of Scheme that uses Henry Baker's [Cheney on the M.T.A] concept.
Usually, you will also need to install the chicken-dev package. The source files are not included since you could easily get them with the Debian source package. If you really feel the needs to get them under /usr/share/chicken/src, then please let me know.
There are many Scheme implementations available in Debian, have a look at each of them! Have fun!

chrony It sets your computer's clock from time servers on the Net.
It consists of a pair of programs : `chronyd'. This is a daemon which runs in background on the system. It obtains measurements (e.g. via the network) of the system's offset relative to other systems, and adjusts the system time accordingly. For isolated systems, the user can periodically enter the correct time by hand (using `chronyc'). In either case, `chronyd' determines the rate at which the computer gains or loses time, and compensates for this. `chronyc'. This is a command-line driven control and monitoring program. An administrator can use this to fine-tune various parameters within the daemon, add or delete servers etc whilst the daemon is running.

which parses the command-line of a typical C-program and returns the result in a structure of type Cmdline. Besides parseCmdline(), the function
void usage(void)
is generated and will be called by the command-line parser if the command line contains obvious errors. One of the main reasons to use clig is the automatic generation of a usage()-function which is always up-to- date with respect to the options actually understood by the program. Additionally, clig creates a manual page. For more information, see http://wsd.iitb.fhg.de/~kir/clighome/.

conquest a real-time, curses based, multi-player space warfare game
Conquest is a predecessor of netrek.
The object of the game is twofold. The short-range goal is to accumulate "kills" by shooting down enemy players. You get one kill point for each enemy ship shot down, plus some extra if the enemy had kills too. The major weapon used to shoot down ships is the photon torpedo.
The long-range goal is to conquer the universe for your team by taking every planet. You take planets by killing off the enemy's armies via bombardment, and then beaming your team's armies down. When all the planets have been taken, the game ends, a new game begins, and the player who actually took the last planet gets his/her name up in lights.
cons A Perl replacement for Make
Excerpted from the README file:
Cons is a system for constructing, primarily, software, but is quite different from previous software construction systems. Cons was designed from the ground up to deal easily with the construction of software spread over multiple source directories. Cons makes it easy to create build scripts that are simple, understandable and maintainable. Cons ensures that complex software is easily and accurately reproducible.
Cons uses a number of techniques to accomplish all of this. Construction scripts are just Perl scripts, making them both easy to comprehend and very flexible. Global scoping of variables is replaced with an import/export mechanism for sharing information between scripts, significantly improving the readability and maintainability of each script. Construction environments are introduced: these are Perl objects that capture the information required for controlling the build process. Multiple environments are used when different semantics are required for generating products in the build tree. Cons implements automatic dependency analysis and uses this to globally sequence the entire build. Variant builds are easily produced from a single source tree. Intelligent build subsetting is possible, when working on localized changes. Overrides can be setup to easily override build instructions without modifying any scripts. MD5 cryptographic signatures are associated with derived files, and are used to accurately determine whether a given file needs to be rebuilt.
conserver-client connect to a console server
This is the client to connect to a console server.
conserver-server connect multiple user to a serial console with logging
Conserver is an application that allows multiple users to watch a serial console at the same time. It can log the data, allows users to take write-access of a console (one at a time), and has a variety of bells and whistles to accentuate that basic functionality. The idea is that conserver will log all your serial traffic so you can go back and review why something crashed, look at changes (if done on the console), or tie the console logs into a monitoring system (just watch the logfiles it creates). With multi-user capabilities you can work on equipment with others, mentor, train, etc. It also does all that client-server stuff so that, assuming you have a network connection, you can interact with any of the equipment from home or wherever.

cpbk a mirroring utility for backing up your files
Backup Copy is basically a smart copy program that allows a user to copy mass files from one place to another. When coping over a previous copy, the key features will allow coping only of new or non existing files in the backup. This results in saving time and less load on the drive. Built into the same feature of copying new files only, is a file removal procedure. If a file is removed from the source path, the same file will be removed when the next backup is performed. This provides a backup that is exactly the same as the source without filling up the drive. As an added option, all files that will be overwritten or deleted when doing a copy over a previous backup, have the opportunity to be stored in a trash bin. You can leave this trash bin to grow and grow just in case you need a backup of your backup. When you start running out of disk space you will need to remove or clean up the trash bin.

cproto generate C function prototypes and convert function definitions
Cproto is a program that generates function prototypes and variable declarations from C source code. It can also convert function definitions between the old style and the ANSI C style. This conversion overwrites the original files, so make a backup copy of your files in case something goes wrong.
crack-attack multiplayer OpenGL puzzle game like "Tetris Attack"
Crack Attack is an OpenGL puzzle game based on the Super Nintendo game "Tetris Attack". Slowly, your stack of colored blocks grows from the bottom, and you've got to make sure it never reaches the top. If it does, you lose. To eliminate blocks from the stack, line up at least three of one color, horizontally or vertically. Once you do, those blocks disappear, and put off slightly your inevitable demise.
Crack Attack is very slow without hardware acceleration. For XFree users, this means you want DRI.
cracklib-runtime A pro-active password checker library
Run-time support programs which use the shared library in cracklib2 including programs to build the password dictionary databases used by the functions in the shared library.
cracklib2-dev a pro-active password checker library

Cram file systems are used for Debian INITRD images.
crank A classical CRypto ANalysis toolKit
Crank is short for "CRyptANalysis toolKit", and its overall purpose is to provide a powerful and extensible environment for solving classical (pen-and-paper) ciphers, providing as much automation as possible.
Classical ciphers include common schemes like monoalphabetic substitutions, where each letter of the alphabet is mapped to another (usually different) letter consistently through the text. The first version of Crank is restricting itself to these special ciphers.
Other algorithms forever devoid of Crank's attentions include Enigma, RSA, DES, MurkelFish, or anything else invented after 1900.
crashmail JAM and *.MSG capable Fidonet tosser
CrashMail II is basically a more portable version of CrashMail, a tosser for Amiga computers. Users of the old Amiga version will probably find some things familiar while some features are gone such as the ARexx port (for obvious reasons!) and the GUI configuration editor. The only feature that CrashMail II has and the old CrashMail hasn't is support for JAM messagebases.
crashme Stress tests operating system stability
crashme generates strings of random bytes and then attempts to execute them. Used to test kernel stability.
**WARNING** While Linux has been known to survive days and weeks of crashme, IT IS NOT GUARANTEED THAT YOUR SYSTEM WILL SURVIVE! DO NOT USE THIS PROGRAM UNLESS YOU REALLY WANT TO CRASH YOR COMPUTER

cricket Program for collection and display of time-series data
This is Cricket. It is a configuration, polling, and data-display engine wrapped around the RRD tool by Tobias Oetiker. There are three user-visible pieces to Cricket: the collector, the grapher, and the config tree. The collector runs from cron and fetches data from a number of devices according to the info it finds in the config tree. The grapher is a CGI application that allows users to traverse the config tree from a web browser and see the data that the collector recorded.
crimson A hex-based tactical game
Crimson Fields is a hex-based tactical war game in the tradition of Battle Isle (tm). Two players command their units on a map of hexagons, trying to accomplish mission objectives ranging from defending important locations to simply destroying all enemy forces. The game can either be played in 'hot seat' mode or via email. There's no AI opponent, yet. A simple editor can be used to create custom level files.
criticalmass Shoot-em-up a la galaxian
criticalmass, aka critter, is a shootemup in the style of Galaxian with very colorful and smooth graphics (provided that you have 3d acceleration)
Note: criticalmass uses OpenGL, and will probably not run well if you do not have a 3d accelerator which is supported by X.
cron-apt Automatic update of packages using apt
This package contains a tool that is run by a cron job at regular intervals. By default it just updates the package list and download new packages without installing. You can instruct it to run anything that you can do with apt-get.
It also sends mail (configurable) to the system administrator on errors.
Observe that this tool is a security risk, so you should not set it to do more than necessary (automatic upgrade of all packages is NOT recommended).
cron management of regular background processing
cron is a background process (`daemon') that runs programs at regular intervals (for example, every minute, day, week or month); which processes are run and at what times are specified in the `crontab'.
Users may also install crontabs so that processes are run on their behalf, though this feature can be disabled or restricted to particular users.
Output from the commands is usually mailed to the system administrator (or to the user in question); you should probably install a mail system as well so that you can receive these messages.
This cron package is configured by default to do various standard system maintenance tasks, such as ensuring that logfiles do not grow endlessly and overflow the disk.
The lockfile-progs package is only a "Suggests" because of the poor way that dselect handles "Recomments", but I do strongly suggest that you install it; it prevents /etc/cron.daily/standard from running multiple times if something gets jammed.
cronolog Logfile rotator for web servers
A simple program that reads log messages from its input and writes them to a set of output files, the names of which are constructed using template and the current date and time. The template uses the same format specifiers as the Unix date command (which are the same as the standard C strftime library function).
It intended to be used in conjunction with a Web server, such as Apache, to split the access log into daily or monthly logs:
TransferLog "|/usr/sbin/cronolog /var/log/apache/%Y/access.%Y.%m.%d.log"
A cronosplit script is also included, to convert existing traditionally-rotated logs into this rotation format.
cronosii fast, light-weight and functional GNOME e-mail client
Cronos II is a powerful GNOME e-mail client. It has been designed to be fast, light, user-friendly, yet strong. Its strength resides in the extended configuration, that the user can manage dynamically without touching any code at all. The friendly aspect resides in the intuitive interface and in the simplicity of the environment and in the full compatibility with the GNOME Project.

csmash CannonSmash, a table tennis simulation game
CannonSmash is a funny 3D table tennis game. It takes a while to get your hand at ease with the mouse+keyboard manipulations. But once you're used to the technique, you can feel like playing a real game. It is playable against the computer or through a network.
Since csmash relies on OpenGL-compatible rendering, it is best experienced with a 3D accelerator card, although software rendering in wireframe mode should be sustainable.
csound-doc Documentation for Csound.
This package contains documentation for CSound, which is distributed separately.
css-mode A Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) editing mode for Emacs
This is a simple Emacs mode for editing CSS style sheets. It adds font-locking and some basic auto-indentation support to Emacs. It works with Emacs 19.34, but should also work with both older and newer versions as well as XEmacs.
While CSS has a C-like syntax, this mode does a better job than cc-mode of handling the features of the CSS language. It supports both CSS Level 1 and Level 2.
Home Page: http://www.garshol.priv.no/download/software/css-mode/
cssc Clone of the Unix SCCS revision-control system.

curl-ssl Pseudopackage for migration from Debian 2.2 (potato).
This pseudopackage contains only the required dependencies to smooth the migration from Debian 2.2 (potato).
Now curl SSL functionality is bound to the one of the libcurl it is installed with. So if you want a curl with SSL support disabled you have to install curl and libcurl2 together, if instead you want a curl with SSL support enabled you have to install curl and libcurl2-ssl together.
This package depends on curl and libcurl2-ssl to force the SSL support into curl, nothing more. In fact if it is still installed on your system you are encouraged to remove it.
curl Get a file from an FTP, GOPHER, HTTP or HTTPS server.
curl is a client to get documents/files from servers using any of the supported protocols. The command is designed to work without user interaction or any kind of interactivity.
curl offers a busload of useful tricks like proxy support, user authentication, ftp upload, HTTP post, file transfer resume and more.
This package is able to handle SSL requests only if installed together with libcurl2-ssl.
More informations can be found at the curl web site http://curl.haxx.se .

curves colorful console interface for CVS version control
CurVeS performs two functions. It provides a menu and command completion interface to CVS so that inexperienced users can learn the features of CVS without documentation. This includes the creation of some meta-features built upon standard CVS commands that commonly are used together. The second function of CurVeS is to provide visual presentation of a project directory so that the status of each file is comprehensible at a glance. CurVeS uses color, when available, to accent the file classification marks.

cuyo Tetris-like game with very impressive effects.
Cuyo, named after a Spanish possessive pronoun, shares with tetris that things fall down and how to navigate them. When enough "of the same type" come "together", they explode. The goal of each level is to blow special "stones" away, you start with. But what "of the same type" and "together" means, varies with the levels. If you hear someone shout that a dragon is always burning his elephants, so that he is not able to blow the volcano away, there a good chances to find Cuyo on his screen. WARNING: It is known to successfully get many people away from more important things to do.
cvm Credential Validation Modules
CVM is a framework for validating a set of credentials against a database using a filter program. The modules act as a filter, taking a set of credentials as input and writing a set of facts as output if those credentials are valid. Optional input is given to the module through environment variables.
Some of the ideas for CVM came from experience with PAM (pluggable authentication modules), the checkpassword interface used by qmail-pop3d, and the "authmod" interface used by Courier IMAP and POP3. This framework places fewer restrictions on the invoking client than checkpassword does, and is much simpler to implement on both sides than PAM and the authmod framework.
See http://untroubled.org/cvm/cvm.html for more information.
cvs-buildpackage Debian package scripts for CVS source trees.
This package provides the capability to inject or import Debian source packages into a CVS repository, build a Debian package from the CVS repository, and helps in integrating upstream changes into the repository.
The import or inject process takes a dsc (Debian source control) file, and imports it into CVS. The module path can maintains distribution and section information; for example, one may inject hemm/hemm/devel/make into the repository.
The build process works analogously to dpkg-buildpackage, and can be used from within the checked out source tree, or with additional information, can be used from anywhere. In the latter case, you can build any previous version of the package, as long as the corresponding orig.tar.gz file is still around. The build script checks out the relevant version from the CVS repository, and runs dpkg-buildpackage to create the Debian package.
Combined, these utilities provide an infrastructure to facilitate the use of CVS by Debian maintainers. This allows one to keep separate CVS branches of a package for stable, unstable, and possibly experimental distributions, along with the other benefits of a version control system.
This can be used to generate a unified CVS source tree, for example.
cvs-conf Manage your configuration via CVS
cvs-conf allows users to manage their configuration files using CVS. On the server, a global configuration project is created and each host is a part of the global configuration. The advantage of cvs-conf is its capacity to restore all file permissions when installing files (user, group and rwx).
cvs-pcl Concurrent Versions System Emacs extension (pcl-cvs)
This is a lisp extension to emacs to support a "CVS mode". In order to use it, you need to already have a checked-out module. For more information, see the documentation. PCL-CVS is included as part of Xemacs, so you don't need to install this package if you wish to use PCL-CVS under Xemacs.
cvs2cl CVS-log-message-to-ChangeLog conversion script
This perl script produces a GNU-style ChangeLog for CVS-controlled sources, by running "cvs log" and parsing the output. Duplicate log messages get unified in the Right Way.
cvs2html create HTML versions of CVS logs
cvs2html is program that transforms the 'cvs log' output into a HTML file. The program can be used on any type of cvs archive, but since it invokes cvs itself, it needs to be run in a machine having a local checked out copy of the archive and access to the repository.
cvs Concurrent Versions System
CVS is a version control system, which allows you to keep old versions of files (usually source code), keep a log of who, when, and why changes occurred, etc., like RCS or SCCS. Unlike the simpler systems, CVS does not just operate on one file at a time or one directory at a time, but operates on hierarchical collections of directories consisting of version controlled files.
CVS helps to manage releases and to control the concurrent editing of source files among multiple authors. CVS allows triggers to enable/log/control various operations and works well over a wide area network.
cvsbook-ja Open Source Development with CVS ; Japanese Translation
This is an online version of a book written by Karl Fogel et al. This book covers CVS, starting with a tutorial and going to cover repository administration, more advanced topics, trouble shooting and so on.

cvsgraph Create a tree of revisions/branches from a CVS/RCS file.
CvsGraph was inspired by the graph option from WinCVS. It represents the revisions and branches in a CVS/RCS file in a graphical tree structure, also listing any tags associated with any given revision.
cvsps Tool to generate CVS patch set information
CVSps is a program for generating 'patch set' information from a CVS repository. A patch set in this case is defined as a set of changes made to a collection of files, all committed at the same time (using a single 'cvs commit' command). This information is valuable for seeing the big picture of the evolution of a CVS project. While CVS tracks revision information, it is often difficult to see what changes were committed 'atomically' to the repository.
cvsutils CVS utilities for use in working directories
Several utilities which are used to facilitate working with the files in the working directory of a developer using CVS.
The utilities included in this package are:
+ cvsu: Offline "cvs update" simulator. Lists the files found in the current directory (or in the directories which you specify). + cvsco: "Cruel checkout". Removes results of compilation and discards local changes. Deletes all the files except listed unmodified ones and checks out everything which seems to be missing. + cvsdiscard: Discards local changes but keeps results of compilation. Works like "cvsco", but only deletes files which are likely to cause merge conflicts. + cvspurge: CVS-based "make maintainer-clean". Removes results of compilation but keeps local changes intact. Removes unknown files, but keeps changes in files known to CVS. + cvstrim: Removes files and directories unknown to CVS. + cvschroot: Makes it possible to change CVS/Root in all subdirectories to the given value. + cvsrmadm: Removes all CVS directories in the project. It is safer if you occasionally make mistakes in the "find" commands. + cvsdo: Simulates some of the CVS commands (currently add, remove and diff) without any access to the CVS server.

cweb-latex LaTeX support for CWEB.
This is the distribution of LaTeX CWEB, a bundle that allows you to use LaTeX as the documentation markup of your CWEB program. Your CWEB programs may be LaTeX documents now -- with sections, subsections, environments, figures, graphics inclusion, etc.
You will want to use this bundle if you - are a CWEB programmer and use LaTeX elsewhere, - haven't used CWEB up to now, because you wanted structured markup (and you didn't want to develop it yourself), or - want a hierarchic document structure for CWEB programs.
If you want to LaTeX the example program, you will need the rcs-latex package, although this is not essential.
cweb Knuth's & Levy's C/C++ programming system.
CWEB allows you to write documents which can be used simultaneously as C/C++ programs and as TeX documentation for them.
The philosophy behind CWEB is that programmers who want to provide the best possible documentation for their programs need two things simultaneously: a language like TeX for formatting, and a language like C for programming. Neither type of language can provide the best documentation by itself. But when both are appropriately combined, we obtain a system that is much more useful than either language separately.
You may also want to install the ctie package which allows one to work with multiple change files simultaneously.
cwebx C/C++ literate programming system (Marc van Leeuwen's version)
This version is a complete rewrite of Levy & Knuth's version of CWEB. It uses a slightly different syntax from the L&K version, but provides a compatibility mode allowing L&K CWEB sources to be processed, producing similar (though not necessarily identical) output.
CWEB allows you to write documents which can be used simultaneously as C/C++ programs and as TeX documentation for them.

cxref Generates latex and HTML documentation for C programs.
A program that takes as input a series of C source files and produces a LaTeX or HTML document containing a cross reference of the files/functions/variables in the program, including documentation taken from suitably formatted source code comments. The documentation is stored in the C source file in specially formatted comments, making it simple to maintain. The cross referencing includes lists of functions called, callers of each function, usage of global variables, header file inclusion, macro definitions and type definitions. Works for ANSI C, including many gcc extensions.

daemontools-installer Installer package for building daemontools binary package
The following is taken from http://cr.yp.to/daemontools.html.
daemontools is a collection of tools for managing UNIX services.
supervise monitors a service. It starts the service and restarts the service if it dies. Setting up a new service is easy: all supervise needs is a directory with a run script that runs the service.
multilog saves error messages to one or more logs. It optionally timestamps each line and, for each log, includes or excludes lines matching specified patterns. It automatically rotates logs to limit the amount of disk space used. If the disk fills up, it pauses and tries again, without losing any data.
svscan starts one supervise process for each subdirectory of the current directory, up to a limit of 1000 subdirectories. svscan skips subdirectory names starting with dots. supervise must be in svscan's path.
If a subdirectory sub is sticky, svscan starts a pair of supervise processes, one for sub, one for sub/log, with a pipe between them. svscan needs two free descriptors for each pipe.
This package fetches the source from the internet, and then proceeds to create a .deb file from it.
dailystrips view web comic strips more conveniently

Also see http://dbbalancer.sourceforge.net/ for more information.
dbench The dbench (disk) and tbench (TCP) benchmarks
dbench and tbench simulate the load of the netbench "industry standard" benchmark used to rate (windows) file servers. Unlike netbench, they do not require a lab of Microsoft Windows PCs: dbench produces the filesystem load on a netbench run, and tbench produces the network load, allowing simpler bottleneck isolation.
Note that this benchmark is *not* a realistic reflection of normal server load.
dbf2mysql xBase <--> MySQL

dcd Command-line CD player
dcd (Dave's CD player) is a small CD player, for people who think workbone is too bloated and graphical. All functions are accessible from the command line. Loop tracks in the background, use it with 'at' as an alarm clock, whatever.
dcgui Direct Connect Graphical client (GTK+) (peer-based file-sharing)
dc_gui is a gtk front-end for the dctc program. dctc handles all communication with dc hubs and clients, while dcgui presents an interface that has many of the features of the original directconnect client, plus some really useful improvements.
It is intended for peer-based file-sharing. In practise it works better than gnutella and other similar systems as it allows dc hubs (servers) administators to require clients to share specified amount of data. The amount is usually based on type of client's connection and it is used not to hurt or exclude anybody but to make file sharing "fair play".
dcgui is still alpha, so some care has to be taken - try it out!
dclock Digital clock for the X Window System with flexible display.
Dclock main feature is its great flexibility in how it can draw. You can even display the output from "date" in it such as "Wednesday, 3rd Jan". Dclock also supports setting an alarm.

In practise it works better than gnutella and other similar systems as it allows dc hubs (servers) administators to require clients to share specified amount of data. The amount is usually based on type of client's connection and it is used not to hurt or exclude anybody but to make file sharing "fair play".
It is *really* not intended to be used "by hand". Instead You should install and use dcgui program.
ddclient Update dynamic IP address at DynDNS.org
A perl based client to update your dynamic IP address at DynDNS.org (or other dynamic DNS services such as Hammernode, Zoneedit or EasyDNS), thus allowing you and others to use a fixed hostname (myhost.dyndns.org) to access your machine. This client supports both the dynamic and (near) static services, MX setting, and alternative host. It caches the address, and only attempts the update if the address actually changes.
For more information on DynDNS.org, see http://www.dyndns.org/.

ddd The Data Display Debugger, a graphical debugger frontend.
The Data Display Debugger (DDD) is a popular graphical user interface to UNIX debuggers such as GDB, DBX, XDB, JDB and others. Besides ``usual'' front-end features such as viewing source texts and breakpoints, DDD provides an interactive graphical data display, where data structures are displayed as graphs. Using DDD, you can reason about your application by watching its data, not just by viewing it execute lines of source code.
Other DDD features include: debugging of programs written in Ada, C, C++, Chill, Fortran, Java, Modula, Pascal, Perl and Python; machine-level debugging; hypertext source navigation and lookup; breakpoint, backtrace, and history editors; preferences and settings editors; program execution in terminal emulator window; debugging on remote host; on-line manual; interactive help on the Motif user interface; GDB/DBX/XDB command-line interface with full editing, history, and completion capabilities.
This version is linked against Lesstif, an LGPL-ed implementation of Motif.

debbugs-el Access the Debian BTS from within Emacs
This package contains:
* debian-bug.el, an Elisp function to submit a bug from within Emacs. * gnus-BTS.el, an enhancement to Gnus to provide buttons on bug numbers seen in Debian-related messages.
debbugs The bug tracking system based on the active Debian BTS
Debian has a bug tracking system which files details of bugs reported by users and developers. Each bug is given a number, and is kept on file until it is marked as having been dealt with. The system is mainly controlled by e-mail, but the bug reports can be viewed using WWW.
This version is fully functional, but it does not autoconfig, see /usr/share/doc/debbugs/README.Debian after installation.
Note: there might be some appearance issues where the a display variable doesn't expand as expected.

debfoster Install only wanted Debian packages
debfoster is a wrapper program for apt and dpkg. When first run, it will ask you which of the installed packages you want to keep installed.
After that, it maintains a list of packages that you want to have installed on your system. It uses this list to detect packages that have been installed only because other packages depended on them. If one of these dependencies changes, debfoster will take notice, and ask if you want to remove the old package.
This helps you to maintain a clean Debian install, without old (mainly library) packages lying around that aren't used any more.
debget download/compile source and binary Debian packages
debget downloads source and binary Debian packages by name. It doesn't require a local copy of the Packages files, instead it lists directories on the FTP site to find out what versions are available.
debget can also optionally unpack and compile source packages, and even install the generated binary packages. If you intend to use these features you should install the devscripts package for the dscverify script it contains.
debhelper helper programs for debian/rules

defoma Debian Font Manager -- automatic font configuration framework.
Defoma, which stands for DEbian FOnt MAnager, provides a framework of automatic font configuration. An application whose configuration of fonts requires users' hand can make the configuration process automated through Defoma, by installing a Defoma-configuration script to Defoma. The script gets called whenever a font is installed and removed, so that the script updates the configuration. Font packages should register their fonts to Defoma in order to have them configured automatically for applications.

dfontmgr GUI frontend for defoma, DEbian FOnt MAnager.
dfontmgr is a GUI frontend for defoma. You can see the fonts registered to defoma, their hints, their status (which applications they have succeeded or failed to register), the applications using defoma framework, information about the applications and the contents of their id-caches. You can also register a font by drag-and-drop a font file, which will generate as many hints as possible by asking you some questions, unregister a registered font, change hints of and re-register a registered font. If a defoma-aware application uses an id-cache and if there's an identifier conflict (which means some fonts provides the same identifier) in the id-cache, you can indicate which font should provide the identifier.
GUI versions of some utilities in defoma and psfontmgr are also installed.

diald dial on demand daemon for PPP and SLIP.
Many sites use SLIP or PPP links to connect to other sites over phone lines. Normally these links must be explicitly turned on or off. diald can be used to bring a SLIP or PPP link up when there are Internet packets to be sent to another site, and to close the link down when it is idle.
diald operates by starting a virtual link on a pseudo tty and setting up a route to the resulting interface. This interface is called the proxy. diald monitors the proxy to determine when to bring up a real communications link. When a real link is up diald routes packets from the proxy to the real link and monitors the real link to decide if it needs to be shut down. As well, if the link goes down unexpectedly diald will attempt to reestablish the link. The rules for controlling these operations are extensively configurable in run time startup files.
Diald requires that you use either the ethertap interface (available in recent Linux kernels) or SLIP to provide the proxy interface. Thus, one or the other of these interfaces is required for diald to work.
Diald needs a program like "chat" or "expect" to actually dial. Sorry, "dip" cannot be used.

diff-doc Documentation for GNU diffutils.
This package contains the HTML documentation for GNU diffutils.
diff File comparison utilities
The diff package provides the diff, diff3, sdiff, and cmp programs.
`diff' shows differences between two files, or each corresponding file in two directories. `cmp' shows the offsets and line numbers where two files differ. `cmp' can also show all the characters that differ between the two files, side by side. `diff3' shows differences among three files. `sdiff' merges two files interactively.
The set of differences produced by `diff' can be used to distribute updates to text files (such as program source code) to other people. This method is especially useful when the differences are small compared to the complete files. Given `diff' output, the `patch' program can update, or "patch", a copy of the file.
diffmon Tool for reporting changes in system configuration.
This tool is run by a nightly cron job, and takes a `diff' of specified system configuration files and emails them to a specified email address. Options to diff can be specified. This is useful in friendly environments where there are multiple sysadmins working on configuration files/setups and everyone's changes are reported. CVS is a better answer, but most of us don't want to have the hassle of putting system files in a repository.
diffstat produces graph of changes introduced by a diff file
This program is a simple that reads the output of the 'diff' program, and produces a histogram of the total number of lines that were changed. It is useful for scanning a patch file to see which files were changed.
digitaldj An SQL based mp3 player front-end
DigitalDJ is an SQL-based front-end to the mpg123 mp3 player designed for people who want to create an mp3 version of their CD collection. It is designed to work with the Grip ripping/encoding application (but can be used separately). When Grip encodes mp3 files, it will place all of the song information into an SQL database. DigitalDJ can then use this information to create playlists based on a number of criteria.
You will need a MySQL server, which can either be on the local or a remote host.

You have to install some translation dictionary word list with a word/phrase in two languages in one line with some kind of separator between them. The default configuration of ding uses the German-English dictionary which can be found in the trans-de-en package, but you can use every other translation word lists with one entry per line.
diploma Write scientific papers with Debian
Debian GNU/Linux is widely used at universities to do research and to write papers with LaTeX. The package diploma contains examples which illustrate the possible ways to do this effectively with Debian GNU/Linux. Each example consists of a source tree where you can do "make" in the top level directory and then the source code is compiled, the measurement data are processed, and the results are converted into nice figures. Then the text is processed and combined with the figures to a print file.
dircproxy IRC proxy for people who use IRC from different workstations
dircproxy is an IRC proxy server designed for people who use IRC from lots of different workstations or clients, but wish to remain connected and see what they missed while they were away. You connect to IRC through dircproxy, and it keeps you connected to the server, even after you detach your client from it. While you're detached, it logs channel and private messages as well as important events, and when you re-attach it'll let you know what you missed.
This can be used to give you roughly the same functionality as using ircII and screen together, except you can use whatever IRC client you like, including X ones!
dirdiff Display and merge changes between two directory trees.
Dirdiff can handle up to 5 trees. It displays a main window with a list of the files which are different between the trees, with colored squares to indicate the relative ages of the versions. A menu allows you to display the differences between any two of the versions in another window. Another menu allows you to copy the file from one tree to another.
directory-administrator LDAP POSIX user/group manager for gnome.
Directory administrator is an LDAP POSIX user/group manager. That, in plain English, means that it will allow you to easily manage your Linux/UNIX users and groups residing in an LDAP database.

discover-data hardware lists for libdiscover1
The libdiscover1 library requires this package to look up information about various hardware devices using the identification data that they report. It contains data detailing various PCI, PCMCIA, and USB devices.
discover hardware identification system
Discover is a hardware identification system based on the libdiscover1 library. Discover provides a flexible interface that programs can use to report a wide range of information about the hardware that is installed on a Linux system. In addition to reporting information, discover includes support for doing hardware detection at boot time. Detection occurs in two stages: The first stage, which runs from an initial ramdisk (initrd), loads just the drivers needed to mount the root file system, and the second stage loads the rest (ethernet cards, sound cards, etc.).
diskless-image-secure Files required for secure NFS-Root image.
This package contains files required to boot an NFS-Root disk image. It also contains template files for setting up individual hosts.
Using this package is more secure then diskless-image-simple, as only one partition needs read-write access, and it is completely refreshed from a read-only NFS mount on every boot. If you suspect somebody has cracked into your NFS-root host, rebooting it will restore it back to its original state. However, this makes it slower to boot then the diskless-image-simple.
WARNING: This package can and will break your computer. Do not install manually. It should only be installed via the diskless-newimage, part of the diskless package.
diskless-image-simple Files required for simple NFS-Root image.
This package contains files required to boot an NFS-Root disk image. It also contains template files for setting up individual hosts.
WARNING: This package can and will break your computer. Do not install manually. It should only be installed via the diskless-newimage, part of the diskless package.
diskless Generate NFS file structure for diskless boot.
This package comes with two programs, diskless_newimage, and diskless_newhost to simplify setting up and maintaining diskless clients NFS-Root file structure.
These programs ask user friendly questions to aid configuration of the diskless system to the administrators preference.
Either the diskless-image-simple or diskless-image-secure packages are required to be available (NOT INSTALLED!) in order to use this package.

dist Tools for developing, maintaining and distributing software.
The dist package is a set of tools meant to ease the construction and maintenance of portable software.
The first component is the Configure script generator, metaconfig, which automatically builds the Configure script from your sources. Ideally, the end-user receiving your source code will simply have to read your README file, run the Configure script (which is self-documented), and then run make.
The second component is the Makefile.SH generator, which is a generic configured Makefile, reusing some of the information figured out by Configure, and a generic Jmakefile description.
The third component is the RCS aware package generator, which is used when it's time to build up the shell archives used to distribute your program.
The fourth and latest component is the patch generator, used to make updates of your sources, which can later be applied on the original distribution by using the patch program. The upstream sources for this packlage may be downloaded from CPAN, like so: http://search.cpan.org/doc/RAM/dist-3.0@70
distmp3 Client/daemon for distributed MP3 compression over TCP/IP
Client (distmp3) and a daemon (distmp3host) for distributed mp3-encoding across multiple hosts on a network.
distributed-net donate unused CPU cycles - client for distributed.net
Donate your extra CPU cycles to a worthy cause!
distributed.net started in 1997 as a project whose purpose was to win a series of contests sponsored by RSA Data Security Inc., to crack their RC5 encryption by brute-force methods. These contests were meant to show governments of nations such as the United States, who limit exports or use of cryptography, that the standards allowed are too weak for general use.
Since this time, distributed.net has changed their focus from solely cracking RSA's RC5 and DES projects to working on more diverse distributed computing problems.
The ongoing projects are RC5-64 and Optimal Golumb Rulers (24-mark), the latter of which has practical applications in science. There are also a number of other projects which are either periodic or upcoming. You may choose which project you wish to participate in.
By installing this package, unused CPU cycles on your computer will be used to work on cracking the code. There should be no noticeable slowdown of your system, since the client runs niced, and only uses CPU time when your computer would otherwise be idle.
For more information, see http://www.distributed.net/
ditty Allows you to play melodies from your built-in speaker
Ditty enables you to play simple melodies from the command line. It does NOT require a sound card, as it can use the built-in speaker to play these melodies just as easily. (Note: in order for the built-in speaker to be used, ditty's stdout must be connected to a tty. Certain terminal emulators, such as xterm, don't support the sound controls. If you aren't using the sound card method, you should generally run ditty from a *real* pseudo-terminal).
Some things that may make ditty fun to use are: Adding sound-effects to .bash_login and .bash_logout or other shellscripts.

djbdns-installer Source only package for building djbdns
The following were taken from various HTML pages under http://cr.yp.to/djbdns.html/
dnscache is a local DNS cache. It accepts recursive DNS queries from local clients such as web browsers and mail transfer agents. It collects responses from remote DNS servers. It caches the responses to save time later.
tinydns is a DNS server. It accepts iterative DNS queries from hosts around the Internet, and responds with locally configured information.
pickdns is a load-balancing DNS server. It accepts iterative DNS queries from hosts around the Internet, and responds with a dynamic selection of locally configured IP addresses with 5-second TTLs.
walldns is a reverse DNS wall. It accepts iterative DNS queries for in-addr.arpa domains from hosts around the Internet, and supplies generic responses that avoid revealing local host information.
rbldns is an IP-address-listing DNS server. It accepts iterative DNS queries from hosts around the Internet asking about various IP addresses. It provides responses showing whether the addresses are on a locally configured list, such as RBL or DUL.
axfrdns is a DNS zone-transfer server. It reads a zone-transfer request in DNS-over-TCP format from its standard input, and responds with locally configured information.
The security of this software is guaranteed by the author. Details of the guarantee can be found at http://cr.yp.to/djbdns/guarantee.html

Designed for Unix, dlint is written in Bourne Shell and Perl.
You may try it online at http://www.domtools.com/dns/dlint.shtml (this server imposes a timeout period; to lint a big zone, you should install dlint yourself and use it locally - that's what this package is for).
dlocate fast alternative to dpkg -L and dpkg -S

docbook SGML DTD for authors of technical documentation
DocBook is an SGML vocabulary particularly well suited to books and papers about computer hardware and software (though it is by no means limited to these applications). It has emerged as an open, standard DTD in the software industry, and is used to document many free software projects.
This package contains the SGML DTD for DocBook, which describes the formal structure of documents complying this format. If you wish to author XML documents, see the 'docbook-xml' package. It is a part of Debian's SGML/XML infrastructure, along with other DTDs, tools for parsing, validating, and styling, and formatting SGML and XML documents.
This package includes the 2.4.1, 3.0, 3.1, 4.0, and 4.1 versions of the DocBook SGML DTD.

Dpsyco introduces the concept of configuration packages. It is a special form of debian packages that is applied on top of the original debian packages. With this you can add users, groups, apply a file skeleton, patch things and more. Observe! No such configuration packages should be uploaded to the debian archives. This kind of things are intended to be created and used by the system administrator only.
For more information see http://www.opal.dhs.org/programs/dpsyco/.
This tool is very useful if you have a lot of servers on which you want to have similar configuration (but not identical). If you only have one server (or client) this is probably not useful at all.
WARNING! Users with UID and GID between 500 and 999 will be automatically administrated by this tool. This means that if you do not have a admin package that set up users these users WILL BE REMOVED. Groups with GID between 300 and 499 will be handled in the same way. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

EXT2FS stands for "Extended Filesystem", version 2. It's the filesystem type used for hard disks on Debian and other Linux systems.
This package contains the headers and shared libraries needed to compile ext2fs-aware programs. Only programmers that really manipulate features specific to the ext2 filesystem will need this. Most programmers will use the generic filesystem-independent interface from libc.
It also contains dev files for the e2p lib used by the e2fsprogs, but which is not yet packaged all by itself because it lacks documentation. It may also lack some support files, by I can't really know until someone uses it...
libe2p is for user-level e2fsprogs commands. It's used by dumpe2fs, chattr, and lsattr. Functions in libe2p typically have two characteristics (a) don't require that block device containing the filesystem be opened directly (functions in libext2fs do), and (b) libe2p typically contains printf statements or parse user input, and so have more internationalization issues.
e2fsprogs-bf A stripped-down versions of e2fsprogs, for boot-floppies
This package is an e2fsprogs package built for a reduced size, so that it can help to save space on installation boot-floppies.

Documentation for the epic4 irc client. Used from within epic4 with the /help command.
epic4-script-hienoa A script for ircII-EPIC4
Hienoa is a script for ircII-EPIC4. It has many nice features such as userlist and themes. The main goals for hienoa are stability and ease of use while still trying to look good.
epic4-script-lice Very functional script for epic
LiCe is a script designed for the ircII and EPIC irc clients; it radically improves the usability of these clients, providing features and enhancements that pioneered the way for a whole crowd of imitators. Though there is now much diversity, thousands of LiCe users still declare it the best script ever.
epic4-script-light Light - It's Just Not Lame
Light is a script for EPIC4 that tries to be a little less brain-dead than the others - it doesn't have psychotic colours or boldness, in particular.
epic4-script-splitfire the ONLY |<-lame irc script!
This epic4 script is a good script for newbies. It features: smart tab completion, bitchx-style nick completion, configuration menu, multiple auto-op lists, nick highlighting, message logging, changeable color schemes (including bitchx scheme), optional timestamping, "sane" operation (it doesn't send colors/bold/script advertising to the server ever), and a host of other things. And it's smaller than some scripts that don't do half as much to boot!
epic4-script-thirdeye Third Eye EPIC script
Third Eye is a script for the EPIC IRC client, optimized for version 4pre2.004. It's features include flood protection, nearly completely configurable ansi colors, netsplit/rejoin detection, automated login/verifications to eggdrop, nick/chanserv, and undernet cserve bots; dcc file server with access restrictions, user lists, basic X support -- pictures of people on notify list, rxvt-xpm/Eterm background switching, scrollbar toggling, etc.; Eterm transparency support, Bash-style tab completion, Themes, and much more.
epic4 epic irc client, version 4
epic4 is an irc client based on ircII. It is primarily suited to users who wish to write their own irc scripts or have irc scripts written by others.
Previous versions of epic were 100% compatible with ircII 2.8.2, though this is no longer the case. Instead we've taken a new direction and chosen to find places where compatibility with ircII is undesirable and fix them. No gratuitous incompatibilities have been added, though many new features have been.
epic Modified ircII client with additional functionality
EPIC is 100% backwards compatible with ircII because EPIC *is* ircII. EPIC was originally built upon the ircII-2.6 client and has maintained faithfulness to remain current up to the 2.8.2 release. EPIC is somewhat larger than the stock client (24%), but that is mostly because of the multitude of new features, the dual ANSI/K&R compliant function headers, and the large amount of re-written code in an attempt to make ircii faster, more efficient, and more powerful.

equivs Circumventing Debian package dependencies
This is a dummy package which can be used to create Debian packages, which only contain dependency information.
This way, you can make the Debian package management system believe that equivalents to packages on which other packages do depend on are actually installed.
Another possibility is creation of a meta package. When this package contains a dependency as "Depends: a, b, c", then installing this package will also select packages a, b and c. Instead of "Depends", you can also use "Recommends:" or "Suggests:" for less demanding dependency.
Please note that this is a crude hack and if thoughtlessly used might possibly do damage to your packaging system. And please note as well that using it is not the recommended way of dealing with broken dependencies. Better file a bug report instead.

This package also includes tools to manipulate the files used by Exult, see expack(1), textpack(1), ipack(1), splitshp(1), and shp2pcx(1) for more info.
A GIMP plugin is provided, so that if you have the GIMP installed you can edit and create game graphics with it.
exult Play Ultima VII on a decent OS
Exult is a game engine which can be used to play the classic games of Ultima VII under X11 (full-screen or in a window). The Black Gate (including Forge Of Virtue) and Serpent Isle (plus Silver Seed) are both playable to the end. Some minor differences to the originals remain, see FAQ 5.3./5.4.
While it is possible to use the engine for other games, no such game has been written yet. Therefore, Exult is useless unless you own a copy of one of the Ultima VIIs.

f2c A FORTRAN 77 to C/C++ translator, plus static & shared libs.
f2c translates FORTRAN 77 (with some extensions) into C, so that it can then be compiled and run on a system with no Fortran compiler. The C files must then be linked against the appropriate libraries.
This is an actively maintained FORTRAN to C translator and with the fort77 frontend provides an ideal way to compile FORTRAN routines as black boxes (for example for invocation from C). Source level debugging facilities are not available, and error messages are not as well developed as in g77.

fakeroot Gives a fake root environment.
This package is intended to enable something like: dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot i.e. to remove the need to become root for a package build. This is done by setting LD_PRELOAD to libfakeroot.so, which provides wrappers around getuid, chown, chmod, mknod, stat, ..., thereby creating a fake root environment.
If you don't understand any of this, you do not need fakeroot!
falconseye-data Data files for Falcon's Eye
Falcon's Eye is a mouse-driven interface for NetHack that enhances the visuals, audio and accessibility of the game, yet retains all the original gameplay and game features.
NetHack is a single player dungeon exploration game that runs on a wide variety of computer systems, with a variety of graphical and text interfaces all using the same game engine. Unlike many other Dungeons & Dragons-inspired games, the emphasis in NetHack is on discovering the detail of the dungeon and not simply killing everything in sight - in fact, killing everything in sight is a good way to die quickly. Each game presents a different landscape - the random number generator provides an essentially unlimited number of variations of the dungeon and its denizens to be discovered by the player in one of a number of characters: you can pick your race, your role, and your gender.

fastdnaml [Biology] A tool for construction of phylogenetic trees of DNA sequences
fastDNAml is a program derived from Joseph Felsenstein's version 3.3 DNAML (part of his PHYLIP package). Users should consult the documentation for DNAML before using this program. fastDNAml is an attempt to solve the same problem as DNAML, but to do so faster and using less memory, so that larger trees and/or more bootstrap replicates become tractable. Much of fastDNAml is merely a recoding of the PHYLIP 3.3 DNAML program from PASCAL to C.

fastforward-src aliases-style mail forwarding for qmail (source)
This is a source only package for building fastforward binary package from source, because Dan Bernstein (fastforward's author) only gives permission for fastforward to be distributed in source form.
fastforward handles qmail forwarding according to a cdb database. It can create forwarding databases from a sendmail-style /etc/aliases or from user-oriented virtual-domain tables.
fastforward supports external mailing lists, stored in a binary format for fast access. It has a tool to convert sendmail-style include files into binary lists.
fastforward is more reliable than sendmail. sendmail can't deal with long aliases, or deeply nested aliases, or deeply nested include files; fastforward has no limits other than memory. sendmail can produce corrupted alias files if the system crashes; fastforward is crashproof.
fastforward's database-building tools are much faster than sendmail's newaliases. Even better, fastforward deliveries don't pause while the database is being rebuilt.
fastforward does not support insecure sendmail-style program deliveries from include files; you can use qmail's secure built-in mechanisms instead. fastforward does support program deliveries from /etc/aliases.

This is the last stable snapshot from the CVS repository.
fcron cron-like scheduler with extended capabilities
Fcron is a scheduler. It implements most of Vixie Cron's functionalities. But contrary to Vixie Cron, fcron does not need your system to be up 7 days a week, 24 hours a day: it also works well with systems which are running neither all the time nor regularly.
Fcron also includes a useful system of options, such as: run jobs one by one, run jobs at fcron's startup if they should have been run during system down time, a better management of the mailing of outputs, set a nice value for a job...
fda C malloc debug library
Provides routines that can be plugged in to replace malloc(), realloc(), calloc(), and free().
If you're not debugging, and an allocation fails, FDA will call user supplied callbacks to allow you to free up some memory or shut down the program cleanly -- this means you don't have to check the return values from malloc if you don't want to.
For debugging FDA provides a nice toolkit for validating pointers, checking for leaks, gathering memory statistics, bounds checking and other nice things. FDA uses shredding, prefix and postfix signatures, and a liberal amount of predicate asserts.
fdclone A console-base lightweight file manager
FD(FD represents "File and Directory") is an easy-to-use file management tool for Un*x newbies.

findimagedupes Finds visually similar or duplicate images
findimagedupes is a commandline utility which performs a rough "visual diff" to two images. This allows you to compare two images or a whole tree of images and determine if any are similar or identical. The program can optionally export a GQView compatible collection file, so you can deal with the duplicates visually. On common image types, findimagedupes seems to be around 98% accurate.

flex-doc Documentation for flex (a fast lexical analyzer generator)
This package contains the HTML documentation for flex. The upstream source code can be found at the ftp site: ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/non-gnu/flex/
flex A fast lexical analyzer generator.
flex is a tool for generating scanners: programs which recognized lexical patterns in text. flex reads the given input files for a description of a scanner to generate. The description is in the form of pairs of regular expressions and C code, called rules. flex generates as output a C source file, lex.yy.c, which defines a routine yylex(). This file is compiled and linked with the -lfl library to produce an executable. When the executable is run, it analyzes its input for occurrences of the regular expressions. Whenever it finds one, it executes the corresponding C code.
This product includes software developed by the University of California, Berkeley and its contributors. The upstream source code can be found at ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/non-gnu/flex/

flip convert text file line endings between Unix and DOS formats
This program converts line endings of text files between MS-DOS and **IX formats. It detects binary files in a nearly foolproof way and leaves them alone unless you override this. It will also leave files alone that are already in the right format and preserves file timestamps. User interrupts are handled gracefully and no garbage or corrupted files left behind. 'flip' does not convert files to a different character set, and it can not handle Apple Macintosh line endings (CR only). For that (and more), you can use the 'recode' program (package 'recode').

This package contains support for Gnome and KDE.
flwm Fast Light Window Manager
Flwm is an attempt to combine the best ideas from several window managers. The primary influence and code base is from wm2 by Chris Cannam. Primary features copied from wm2 are:
- Does not look like Windoze. - Nifty sideways titlebars. - No icons. You deiconize by picking off a pop-up menu. This means no space is wasted by icons. - Really small and fast code.
It is enhanced by the author's own further nutty ideas:
- Does not use shape extension, more standard resize handles. - Occupies as little screen space as possible. The border and titles are as thin as I could possibly make them. And maximized windows waste only 15 pixels horizontally and zero (count'em) pixels vertically! - Independent maximize buttons for width & height, close button. - Understands Motif, KDE, and Gnome window manager hints. - Multiple desktops, controlled from the same menu as the icons.
flying pool/snooker/carrom/hockey/curling simulator for X11
Especially the billiards variants are very playable and nice. The only drawback is that there are no rules implemented so you have to know them yourself :-)
NOTE: The game will only run on a screen with 8 bit color depth (256 colors); displays with a color depth above 8 won't work. You've got to switch to a 8 bit display before playing the game or with XFree4.0 you could use an 8 bit overlay if available. The original author has abandoned the game so it's unlikely that the color depth problem will get fixed anytime soon. If you are able to fix the game for other depths please send the patch.

It offers the following improvements over Sierra SCI: - Improved background picture support - Trilinear filtering for text and images - readline-like editing in controls - General MIDI sound output (still experimental)
freeswan IPSEC utilities for FreeSWan
IPSEC is Internet Protocol SECurity. It uses strong cryptography to provide both authentication and encryption services. Authentication ensures that packets are from the right sender and have not been altered in transit. Encryption prevents unauthorised reading of packet contents.
These services allow you to build secure tunnels through untrusted networks. Everything passing through the untrusted net is encrypted by the IPSEC gateway machine and decrypted by the gateway at the other end. The result is Virtual Private Network or VPN. This is a network which is effectively private even though it includes machines at several different sites connected by the insecure Internet.
Please note that you will need kernel support for using this package. The standard Debian kernel does not include support for FreeSWan. You can build your own kernel by installing the kernel-source package and kernel-patch-freeswan, which can be automatically applied when using make-kpkg.
freesweep a text-based minesweeper
Freesweep is an implementation of the popular minesweeper game, where one tries to find all the mines without igniting any, based on hints given by the computer.

freetable Facilitates production of HTML tables
Freetable is a perl script that aims to make the production of HTML tables a little easier. This script works as a filter, reading stdin and writing to stdout.
The input syntax is as roughly follows:
<wwwtable table-options...> initial text (e.g. <caption> ... </caption>). (X, Y) options for cell (X, Y) text for cell (X,Y)... ((X,Y)) options for header cell X,Y text for header cell (X,Y)... </wwwtable>
Rows and cells may be specified in any order, numbering starts at 1. X and/or Y may be replaced by regular expression, explicit range or even arbitrary Perl code to indicate rows or columns. Options or text (or both) may be omitted for cells. Cells may be omitted completely if they are empty or fall under the rowspan/colspan specifications of another cell. Cells may contain arbitrary HTML text, including other freetable tables.

You WANT this game.
fsh Fast remote command execution over rsh/ssh/lsh
The problem: logging in to a remote system with a cryptographic solution such as lsh or ssh takes time, due to the computationally expensive key exchanges that occur when the connection is established. It is common to trigger a lot of remote logins while using remote CVS, which makes it painfully slow compared to having the repository locally.
The solution: reuse the secure tunnel once it has been established. fsh is a drop-in rsh-compatible replacement for ssh that automatically reuses ssh tunnels.
fsp client utilities for File Service Protocol (FSP)
FSP is an alternative to anonymous FTP. In the words of the developers, `FSP is what anonymous FTP *should* be'. FSP is a protocol, a bit like FTP, for moving files around. It's designed for anonymous archives, and has protection against server and network overloading. It doesn't use connections, so it can survive things falling over. It's also designed to prevent network congestion, so it can be very nice for large transfers over slow links.
fspanel A minimalist panel for X
It's a panel for Linux that lists all your windows, but the difference is that it's tiny. The binary is about 10k and it takes barely any memory. It works under any gnome compliant window manager (eg. E, Sawfish, WindowMaker, IceWM, Oroborus) and supports KDE's mini icons (the KWM_WIN_ICON atom).
fspd A File Service Protocol (FSP) server
FSP is an alternative to anonymous FTP that is very resource friendly. The server does not fork so it can handle far more concurrent users. Also, the protocol is designed with a transmisson failure backoff, so it's transfers do not interfere with interactive network applications.
If you don't provide anonymous FTP access, you probably don't want this software either.

A powerful and highly customizable utility to build programs and other things, that can run on Un*x, Nt, VMS, OS/2 and Macintosh MPW, using portable Jamfiles. It can build large projects spread across many directories in one pass.
It takes some time to fully apprehend, as there's no tutorial available yet, especially when one's already accustomed to make(1), but there's no comparison in power when comparing these 2 tools.
Standard rules: - can automatically extract header dependencies for C/C++ (you can customize for you own language) - provide for automatic "clean", "install", "uninstall" rules, so that an automake-like tool is not needed
ftnchek A semantic checker for Fortran 77 programs.
ftnchek (short for Fortran checker) is a tool designed to detect certain errors in a Fortran program that a compiler usually does not, thus assisting users in the debugging of their Fortran programs.
Unlike syntax errors, semantic errors are legal in the Fortran language but are wasteful or may cause incorrect operation. For example, variables which are never used may indicate some omission in the program; uninitialized variables contain garbage which may cause incorrect results to be calculated; and variables which are not declared may not have the intended type.
ftnchek can also be used to provide call-trees, cross-reference of subprogram calls and COMMON blocks usage, source listings, symbol tables and other things you might find useful when debugging a Fortran program.

ftp-ssl The FTP client with SSL encryption support.
ftp is the user interface to the ARPANET standard File Transfer Protocol. The program allows a user to transfer files to and from a remote network site.
ftp-ssl replaces normal ftp using SSL authentication and encryption. It interoperates with normal ftpd. It checks if the other side is also talking SSL, if not it falls back to normal ftp protocol.
Advantages over normal ftp(d): Your passwords and the data you send will not go in cleartext over the line. Nobody can get it with tcpdump or similar tools.
ftp-upload put files with FTP from a script
ftp-upload transfers local files to another machine using FTP. It's meant to be used by scripts and such rather than interactively. There's no user interface, the program is controlled strictly via the command line. It is disciplined with its exit status.
ftp-utils ftp support for shell scripts
ftp-utils is a small collection of shell tools for the FTP protocol. Using it, you can write shell scripts which work equally well for both local file systems and remote file systems accessed via FTP.
Included in the distribution is a simple shell script to build or maintain an FTP-mirror (pushing from origin to mirror).
ftp The FTP client.
ftp is the user interface to the ARPANET standard File Transfer Protocol. The program allows a user to transfer files to and from a remote network site.
ftpd-ssl FTP server with SSL encryption support.
This is the netkit ftp server with encryption support
ftpd-ssl replaces normal ftpd using SSL authentication and encryption. It interoperates with normal ftp. It checks if the other side is also talking SSL, if not it falls back to normal ftp protocol.
Advantages over normal ftp(d): Your passwords and the data you send will not go in cleartext over the line. Nobody can get it with tcpdump or similar tools.

ftpfs-utils Mount utils for FTP filesystem
This package contains the ftpmount utility, needed to mount the FTP filesystem.
There is also a auto.ftp helper application, which allows to use FTP ressources with autofs.
ftpgrab file mirroring utility
ftpgrab is a utility for maintaining FTP mirrors. In fact not unlike the "Mirror" perl program. However ftpgrab is oriented towards the smaller site which doesn't have the resources to mirror entire version trees of software.
The primary "plus point" of ftpgrab is that it can base download decisions by parsing version numbers out of filenames. For example, ftpgrab will recognize that the file "linux-2.2.2.tar.gz" is newer than "linux-2.2.1.tar.gz" based on the version string. It will then download the new version and delete the old one when it is done, thus saving you mirroring 10 kernel versions all at >10Mb each.

garlic-doc [Chemistry] a molecular visualization program - documents
This is the documentation package for Garlic.
Garlic is probably the most portable molecular visualization program in the Unix world. It's written for the investigation of membrane proteins. It may be used to visualize other proteins, as well as some geometric objects. The name should has something to do with the structure and operation of this program. This version of garlic recognizes PDB format version 2.1. Garlic may also be used to analyze protein sequences.
Features include (but not limited to): o The slab position and thickness are visible in a small window. o Atomic bonds as well as atoms are treated as independent drawable objects. o The atomic and bond colors depend on position. Five mapping modes are available (as for slab). o Capable to display stereo image. o Capable to display other geometric objects, like membrane. o Atomic information is available for atom covered by the mouse pointer. No click required, just move the mouse pointer over the structure! o Capable to load more than one structure. o Capable to draw Ramachandran plot, helical wheel, Venn diagram, averaged hydrophobicity and hydrophobic moment plot. o The command prompt is available at the bottom of the main window. It is able to display one error message and one command string.

gbase small numeric base converter
If you specify a number on the command line (preceded by a switch to describe the base the number is in) the program will display that number in all four bases on the console and exit. You can also specify the -s switch which will allow you to enter/display signed numbers. (This allows the use of a - (minus) before a decimal number).
Just running the program without any switches will display the main window. There are four entry boxes, corresponding to each of the four bases. You can type into any of these boxes and the others will update automagically. The program will ignore any characters that are not allowed for that particular base. It will only allow a - (minus) at the start of a decimal number, if the signed option is on.

gemdropx Gem Drop X is an interesting one-player puzzle game for X11
The game is played with YOU at the bottom of the screen. At the top is a random assortment of colored shapes ("gems"). As time goes on, more gems appear at the very top of the screen, pushing the rest downwards. The game is over when the gems reach the bottom.
It's your job to keep the screen from filling up. You do this by "grabbing" gems from the top of the screen, carrying them around, if need be, and "throwing" them back up.
If, when you throw some gems back up, you create a "match" of 3 or more gems in a vertical column, they disappear (with a cool little explosion). At this point, if there are any "matches" of the same gem to the left or right of this column, they disappear too! And so on. This is great for cool chain-reactions! You also get more points for the more gems that disappear in a match. (Matching four gives as many points as matching three twice, for example.)
genesis General-purpose neural simulator
GENESIS is a general purpose simulation platform which was developed to support the simulation of neural systems ranging from complex models of single neurons to simulations of large networks made up of more abstract neuronal components.

Each Forth environment provides one or more dictionaries of pre-defined words, and programming in Forth consists of defining and executing new words that are combinations of previously defined words. It has been said that learning Forth changes forever the way you think about writing programs.
