AutoConvert is an intelligent Chinese Encoding converter. It uses built-in functions to judge the type of the input file's Chinese Encoding (such as GB/Big5/HZ), then converts the input file to any type of Chinese Encoding you want. You can use autoconvert to automatically convert incoming e-mail messages. It can also optionally handle the UNI/UTF7/UTF8 encoding.
autofs is a kernel-based automounter for Linux. It performs a job similar to amd but relies on a small stub of kernel code instead of pretending to be an NFS server. The result is simpler code, better reliability, and much faster operation in the common case (everything already mounted). Autofs 4 adds support for automounting trees of exported filesystems via /net.
The Autofs CD Changer patch allows you to automount the different slots of a CD changer. It automatically changes the slots and remounts CDs as needed, giving the impression that they are all simultaneously mounted. It's not much use for multisession stuff, but works fine for mp3 lists that span many CDs.
AutoGen is a tool designed for generating program files that contain repetitive text with varied substitutions. Its goal is to simplify the maintenance of programs that contain large amounts of repetitious text. This is especially valuable if there are several blocks of such text that must be kept synchronized. Output is specified with a Scheme-enhanced output template. Input, if required by your template, may come from AutoGen definitions, CGI data, or XML files.
Automake is a tool for automatically generating Makefiles compliant with the GNU Coding Standards. It was inspired by the 4.4BSD make and include files, but aims to be portable and to conform to the GNU standards for Makefile variables and targets. Automake is a Perl script. The input files are called Makefile.am. The output files are called Makefile.in; They are intended for use with Autoconf. Automake requires certain things to be done in your configure.in. This package also includes the "aclocal" program. aclocal is a program to generate an 'aclocal.m4' based on the contents of 'configure.in'. It is useful as an extensible, maintainable mechanism for augmenting autoconf.
