GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disk, CD-ROM, etc.) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors. GNU ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue logfiles, shows logfile contents, converts logfiles to/from other formats, compares logfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a logfile if the rescue is done.
GNU ed is an 8-bit clean implementation of the POSIX line-oriented text editor. Ed is the "standard" text editor in the sense that it is the original editor for Unix, and thus widely available. For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen editors such as GNU Emacs or GNU Moe.
GNU Recutils is a set of tools and libraries to access human-editable text-based databases called recfiles. A recfile contains data structured as a sequence of records. The rec format supports data integrity with the usage of record descriptors (keys, mandatory fields, field types, etc.) as well as the ability of record fields to refer to other records. Despite its simplicity, recfiles can be used to store medium-sized databases. The GNU recutils suite comprises a texinfo manual describing the Rec format, a C library (librec) providing a rich set of functions to access rec files, a set of C utilities that can be used in shell scripts and in the command line to operate on rec files, and an Emacs mode (rec-mode).
Herqq UPnP (HUPnP) is a software library for building UPnP devices and control points conforming to the UPnP Device Architecture version 1.1. It is designed to be simple to use and robust in operation. It is built using the Qt framework, following many of the design principles and programming practices used in the Qt framework. It integrates into Qt-based software smoothly and enables truly rapid UPnP development.
KDE-Services extends the features of the Dolphin File Manager right-click menu in the KDE graphical environment. It allows you to play and convert between several video formats, extract audio from movies and convert them to MP3 or FLAC, convert audio to MP3 or FLAC, securely send a file or directory to Mailx as an email, send files to Thunderbird as attachments, burn and checksum ISO images, execute scripts and applications, get low-level information on video files, build ISO images from folders, replace text, search, SSH, use Midnight Commander, use system, network, and backup/restore tools, use Samba, extract subtitles from MKV video, multiplex subtitles into MPEG-2 videos, and work with YouTube, DVDs, multimedia, GPG. You can add a timestamp prefix to a filename or directory name. A paranoid shredder, an HTTP publisher, graphic tools, RPM package tools, Xorg configuration, and Dropbox tools are included.
Lbzip2 is a parallel, SMP-based, bzip2-compatible compression utility, with a commandline resembling that of the original bzip2. It is usable both on its own and as a filter passed to GNU tar with the "--use-compress-program" option. It uses Gnulib, and its building and testing process is managed by the GNU build system. Starting with release 2.0, lbzip2 is independent of libbz2 and features yambi, an independent BWT compression stack with improved speed and robustness.
Listaller unifies the way you manage software on your Linux system by providing a user-friendly, application-centered software manager GUI. It also provides a software setup package format (the IPK package format), which works on all Linux distributions, as well as tools to make your application binaries work on every Linux distribution. The project has merged with Autopackage some time ago. One of Listaller's strengths is its close integration with AppStream and PackageKit. This means that you will be able to manage Listaller-installed applications with your favorite package-manager, like GNOME-PackageKit, Apper, or even the Ubuntu Software Center. Listaller is primarily designed to be run on Linux distributions, but it could be ported to *BSD.
Lzip is a lossless data compressor with a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2. Lzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses more than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution and data archiving. Lzip is a clean implementation of the LZMA algorithm. The Lzip file format is designed for long-term data archiving. It is clean, provides very safe four factor integrity checking, and is backed by the recovery capabilities of lziprecover.
