The ax25-tools package contains the tools that you need to get going with AX.25 for Linux. AX.25 is a network protocol that is used by hamradio operators across packet radio wireless links. This package contains the network tools to configure hamradio interfaces and some of the hamradio specific network daemons. In addition to programs that understand AX.25, they also work with ROSE and Net/ROM hamradio protocols.
The ax25-apps package contains programs for the hamradio protocol AX.25 that would be used by normal users (as opposed to network daemons). While not essential, these programs are usually installed if you want to connect to amatuer packet radio networks. Generally it is a good idea to also get the ax25-tools package so you can configure the hamradio ports. This package includes call, listen, ax25ipd and ax25rtd.
Advanced Web Statistics (AWStats) is a free powerful Web server logfile analyzer (Perl script) that shows you all your Web statistics including visits, unique visitors, pages, hits, rush hours, search engines, keywords used to find your site, robots, broken links, and more. It works with both IIS 5.0+ and Apache Web server log files as a CGI and/or from the command line. It also supports around 40 languages.
Awka is both a translator of AWK programs to ANSI C, and a separate library against which the C code is linked. The aims of Awka are to allow creation an executable that provides generally better performance than AWK interpretors, to allow easy inclusion of AWK logic in larger C applications, and use of external C functions within AWK scripts.
AweMUD is a MUD server for use with fantasy-settings. Features include fully dynamic objects and characters, an advanced scripting system, and custom worlds. The engine will eventually have completely interactive rooms (items can be placed under benches, doors can be destroyed), complex magick, and interactive NPCs.
avtv is an SVGAlib/X11 program to capture and display TV or video input from all Accuview based TV/Video cards. This includes Reveal TV500, PBTV 4, Aztech TV/Video 500, and Comp Express TV/Video. It supports selecting input from TV tuner or external RCA connectors, capturing an image, and saving to a file.
AVS5 is Advanced Visual Systems' original data visualization programming environment for end-users. It enables users to analyze, manipulate and display large volumes of complex data, including 2D and 3D images, 3D graphics and multidimensional numeric data. AVS5 is a commercial application.
avrmon-stk200 is a port of Denis Chertykov's Linux debug monitor system for Atmel AVR microcontrollers. It is compatible with the connection scheme used in Atmels "STK200 Starter Kit", as opposed to the original version that used the "DAPA" (Alex's Direct Avr Parallel Access) scheme. In short, the monitor system allows you to do in-systems source-level debugging on AVR microcontrollers with gdb (avr-gdb).
