The dump package contains both dump and restore. Dump examines files in a filesystem, determines which ones need to be backed up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape or other storage medium. The restore command performs the inverse function of dump; it can restore a full backup of a filesystem. Subsequent incremental backups can then be layered on top of the full backup. Single files and directory subtrees may also be restored from full or partial backups.
duke is a curses based frontend integrated into the latest version of mpg123. It was written because of the need of a textbased player for playing from a remote computer with telnet or even a text-terminal. It allows you to navigate through directories, add files or whole directories to the playlist, sort, search, randomize select and delete from it. It also parses ID3-tags, shows songlengths and has limited mouse-support.
DuhDraw is a program which almost perfectly simulates TheDraw for DOS. Back in the good old BBSing days, TheDraw was a program used by a SysOp in order to draw ANSI screens, the only graphics available on BBSes for quite a while. However, for a long time, nobody considered Linux, as Linux BBSes were uncommon. Other applications of the software include login screens, and mud screens. I always thought it ironic that MUDs were mostly run off of Unix machines, and yet they used DOS editors to generate the ANSI screens.
Duck is Web-based system for practice testing and quizzing. Instructors can create multiple-choice, short answer, and 'extended response' questions. Unique feedback can be provided for up to 10 potential student responses. Duck is based on constructivist teaching and learning ideals.
The goal of the dtfs project is to implement a log-structured file system within the Linux 2.2.x kernels. dtfs has a filesystem-independent core that provides general services required for a log-structured file system and uses a "traditional" file system implementation to do the actual filesystem/VFS operations. The tradtional file system of choice is currently Linux' ext2 file system. Using the ext2 file system together with the log-structured core should both reduce the implementation work required to be done and facilitate the future maintainence of dtfs.
