pkt is a universal XML packet archiver. It can manipulate files for backing up documents, transferring them across networks, emailing them, and sharing them by other means (p2p etc). It uses plugin filters to do the job and handles virtually any format available if there is a plugin for it. It handles encryption, compression, conversion, parity checking, decryption, decoding, repairing, rebuilding, and other tasks using a universal file format (XML-based). By default, all pkt output is in 7-bit ASCII which is UTF encoded and is compatible with XML parsers. pkt files can be disassembled, reassembled, and repaired by hand if necessary. pkt also supports the use of 8-bit compressed XML packets for its archives using one of several compression algorithms. In general, pkt will try to use the best algorithms available.
rsyncbackup is a handy tool for scheduled backups using rsync. rsyncbackup lets you easily setup multiple source folders and destinations, both locally, on your iPod or external firewire disk, or at a remote destination using ssh. rsyncbackup has no GUI, but is based on editing configuration files. The script is meant to be run in a crontab, so user interaction is not neccesary. Basic terminal skills are required to use the program.
WebPack is a shell script for automatically packing Web sites by shrinking them without affecting their functionality or appearance. It is also useful for losslessly shrinking image collections and locating corrupt files. It works by stripping unnecessary information and optimizing the compression of images, and by removing comments/whitespace from HTML, using readily-available tools.
phpFileManager is a complete filesystem management tool in a single file. Features: server info, directory tree, copy/move/delete/create/rename/edit/view/chmod files and folders, tar/zip/bzip/gzip, multiple uploads, shell/exec, works on Linux and Windows, PHP4/5 and Apache2 compatible, and English and Portuguese support.
The FAAC project includes the AAC encoder FAAC and decoder FAAD2. It supports several MPEG-4 object types (LC, Main, LTP, HE AAC, PS) and file formats (ADTS AAC, raw AAC, MP4), multichannel and gapless en/decoding as well as MP4 metadata tags. The codecs are compatible with standard-compliant audio applications using one or more of these profiles.
sdelta analyzes two files and outputs the difference. It applies the difference to the first of the original files to construct a bit for bit clone of the second file. It is optimized for use with source tarballs, and also contains sdreq, the client for the Public Patch Repository, PPR. The PPR generates on demand source upgrade and downgrade patches for over a quarter of a million version specific source tarballs. By using sdreq you can acquire new source tarballs from the PPR several times faster and with only 10% of the downloading that you currently do.
