BeFS-driver for Linux is a read-only Linux 2.4 filesystem driver for the Be filesystem, the native filesystem of Be (includes BeOS). The basic features (directories and files) are stable, and robust. It is distributed as a source tarball and as a patch against the latest 2.4 kernels.
Parallel File Scanner is a multithreaded parallel file scanner that combines the functionality of find, xargs, and fgrep. It has the potential of being faster than find+xargs+fgrep on systems with multiple CPUs, multiple disks, and a good file system that supports parallel operations.
Linux, in the tradition of UNIX-like operating systems, implements file system permissions using a rather coarse scheme. While this is sufficient for a surprisingly large set of applications, it is too inflexible for many other scenarios. For that reason, all the major commercial UNIX operating systems have extended this simple scheme in one way or the other. This is an effort to implement POSIX-like Access Control Lists for Linux. Access Control Lists are built on top of Extended Attributes, which can also be used to associate other pieces of information with files such as Filesystem Capabilities, or user data like mime type and search keywords.
This package provides ACL support for the Linux kernel. Access Control Lists allow fine-grained access control of filesystem objects by attaching a list of permissions which grant or deny specific capabilities to users or groups. This implementation of ACL for the Linux kernel provides semantics that are almost totally compatible with the traditional POSIX umode model for applications that are unaware of the kernel support. Features include the ability to "offer" a file for chown()ing by another user.
LazySync is a file-synchronization program written for handheld devices using the SavaJeXE Java operating system. It attempts to offer similar functionality to HotSync and ActiveSync of the Palm and CE platforms, and supports synchronization via an existing TCP/IP network connection between handheld and host.
