Burn.awk is a character-mode, dialog-based frontend to the cdrtools burning software. It is only designed to burn data CD-R or CD-RW, but does it well. Despite its small size it is quite versatile. It supports SCSI writers (and IDE too, through Linux ide-scsi gateway), SCSI or IDE CDROMs, limited auto-detection, ISO image extraction, mastering and burning, direct burning of a directory, direct CD-to-CD copy, tray ejection and closing, CD-RW blanking, configuration dialogs, and saving.
The ATA over Ethernet Tools are intended for use in conjunction with an ATA over Ethernet (AoE) driver for a Linux 2.6 kernel, called "aoe". The tools perform simple tasks like listing available devices, triggering device discovery, and restricting the network interfaces on which AoE is performed.
basE91 is an advanced method for encoding binary data as ASCII characters. It is similar to UUencode or base64, but is more efficient. The overhead produced by basE91 depends on the input data. It amounts at most to 23% (versus 33% for base64) and can range down to 14%, which typically occurs on 0-byte blocks. This makes basE91 very useful for transferring larger files over binary unsafe connections like e-mail or terminal lines.
