Lbzip2 is a parallel, SMP-based, bzip2-compatible compression utility, with a commandline resembling that of the original bzip2. It is usable both on its own and as a filter passed to GNU tar with the "--use-compress-program" option. It uses Gnulib, and its building and testing process is managed by the GNU build system. Starting with release 2.0, lbzip2 is independent of libbz2 and features yambi, an independent BWT compression stack with improved speed and robustness.
BitRock InstallBuilder allows you to create easy-to-use multiplatform installers for Linux (x86/PPC/s390/x86_64/Itanium), Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86/Sparc), IRIX, AIX, and HP-UX applications. The generated application installers have a native look-and-feel and no external dependencies, and can be run in GUI, text, and unattended modes. In addition to self-contained installers, the installation tool is also able to generate standalone RPM packages.
LRZIP is a compression program and library that can achieve very high compression ratios and speed when used with large files using unlimited sized compression windows. It uses the combined compression algorithms of zpaq and lzma for maximum compression, lzo for maximum speed, and the long range redundancy reduction of rzip. It is designed to scale with increases with RAM size, improving compression further. A choice of either size or speed optimizations allows for either better compression than even lzma can provide, or better speed than gzip, but with bzip2 sized compression levels. It also has high grade password protected encryption and full STDIN/STDOUT support.
zlib is designed to be a free, general-purpose, legally unencumbered, lossless data-compression library for use on virtually any computer hardware and operating system. The zlib data format is itself portable across platforms. Unlike the LZW compression method used in Unix compress(1), the compression method currently used in zlib essentially never expands the data. (LZW can double or triple the file size in extreme cases.) zlib's memory footprint is also independent of the input data and can be reduced, if necessary, at some cost in compression.
DarGUI is a graphical frontend for the Disk ARchiving utility (DAR) that aims to make it easier and quicker to perform common backup tasks using DAR. It uses the GTK+ library, which is installed on most Linux distributions, so usually the only additional dependency is DAR. DarGUI aims to complement and enhance the command line features of DAR rather than conceal them, and to help users to learn how DAR works so that they can use it from the command line when necessary. It is written in Pascal using FreePascal and the Lazarus IDE.
Apptools is a collection of programs for accessing Applix 1616/OS disk images. It is similar to 'mtools' and 'cpmtools' for MS-DOS and CP/M disks. The tools have been tested on Applix 1616/OS floppy disk images, but should work on hard disk images. The tools are limited to reading and only work with raw disk images. The collection includes programs for listing, copying, displaying, and reporting, and all tools allow recursive and wildcard operations.
