Autosig is a small utility for generating .signature files for email and .plan files for finger. The file is generated from a quote randomly selected from a file of quotes and a header file. The header file and the randomly selected quote are combined to form the signature file or plan file. It can be run as a frontend to your favorite mail client, or as a daemon.
AutoTrace is a program for converting bitmaps to vector graphics. The aim of the AutoTrace project is the development of a freely-available application similar to CorelTrace or Adobe Streamline. In some aspects it is already better. Originally being created as a plugin for the GIMP, AutoTrace is now a standalone program and can be compiled on any UNIX platform using GCC.
AutoUpdate is a Perl script which performs a task similar to Red Hat's up2date or autorpm. It can be used to automatically download and upgrade RPMs from different HTTP(S) or (S)FTP sites, while also handling dependencies. Moreover, it can also be used to keep a server with a customized (Red Hat) distribution plus all clients up to date.
afinger is a configurable finger client, written in Perl. It can be used both together with a finger daemon and from the command line. afinger honours a .nofinger file in home directories, you can set a minimum and maximum UID, use a Fortune program for erroneous requests, and virtually control each part of the returned information.
AVFS (A Virtual File System) is an easy-to-install system that enables all programs to access archived, compressed, remote, or other kind of virtual files without the need to recompile programs or the kernel. The following modules are currently implemented: tar, zip, rar, gzip, bzip2, ftp, http, dav, rsh/ssh, floppy, and many more.
Avifile Glue for mpeg2_movie started as a simple patch against heroinewarrior mpeg2_movie to utilize libavifile, however the project got out of hand and currently supports the Nuppelvideo file format for input and the MJPEGtools' mpeg2enc YUV4MPEG format for output. Originally, this project's intent was not to become a new package, but only to provide direct AVI to MPEG conversion for the GNU/Unix/Linux community until the core feature (linking against libaviplay) was integrated into the main encoder, but this goal has been abandoned. The project's current goad is to enable as many encoders as possible with the ability to read AVI, NUV, and QT.
This data structure features fast (O(log N)) insertion, removal, and retrieval of records, provided that there is a sorting relation over their keys and there are no entries with equal keys. The AVL tree is an explicit binary searching tree, where left children of each vertex are less or equal, while right children are greater or equal than the vertex itself. In addition, the tree is balanced so that the difference between the depths of the two subtrees of each vertex is at most one.
