a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.

ACLbit is a command line tool to backup and restore POSIX ACLs on Linux file systems. The tool uses its backup database to inspect ACLs. The inspection part of ACLbit focuses on providing clear and concise output of effective access rights of a particular user. The main purpose is to make the life of sysadmins easier when finding out current access rights of a particular user when ACLs are in use, especially on systems with tens/hundreds of thousands of inodes. ACLbit is tool to backup ACLs only. It is not an archiver, so it does not backup the files themselves.
